Wow, some big price cuts on the Neo workflow packages, the big 3D pack looks like it is now nearly a third of the original price. GoPro are definitely trying to make their mark in the world of 3D editing.
The big daddy of 3D workflow solutions for Final Cut Pro has just got a lot cheaper. GoPro have announced lower cost product lines featuring CineForm’s award-winning 2D and 3D production workflow solutions
I think we all predicted this but it is nice to see the new lower prices fit better into the FCP ecosystem. Of course the big question of whether FCPX supports 3D out of the box still remains.
"So much has happened at CineForm in the past six months, including the acquisition by GoPro which has already influenced our product and market strategy. We’re excited to demonstrate our CineForm Studio product line which is an updated, lower cost evolution of the Neo product line,” said David Taylor, GoPro’s VP of Software Products. “Over the past year, the industry has seen significant and rapid development of production workflow technologies - from cameras to post production systems - and especially in stereo 3D production workflows. Now as a part of GoPro, we have the resources to accelerate our developments for the professional production marketplace while also extending our reach into the consumer and prosumer markets where GoPro is clearly a leader.”
