NAB 2019: Primestream Spotlights Preview of Final Cut Pro X Workflow Extension
Primestream (Booth SL7920) presented a technology preview of their new Workflow Extension for Final Cut Pro X at (Booth SL7920) at NAB 2019. The new Workflow Extension enables editors to access and manage assets and projects directly from within Final Cut Pro X. The tight integration between Primestream and Final Cut Pro X streamlines creative workflows, saving time, money, and stress, while increasing productivity and efficiency.
“When people are working with media, the best thing that can happen is when processes become simplified,” said Alan Dabul, Product Development Manager at Primestream. “By staying within Final Cut Pro X, users can accomplish more with Primestream in their primary work space. This makes the technical process easier and helps to make the creative process less prone to workflow interruptions. Editors can stay in context their edit and do what is needed, all from one window.”
