One of the most exciting changes in the video production world today is the trend toward tapeless workflows. With it’s P2 line of cameras, decks and media, Panasonic is certainly a leader in this area. Adobe Premiere Pro is already supporting Panasonic P2 file-based video clips.
Soon you’ll be able to import P2 files into Adobe After Effects CS3 as well. No transcoding, no wrapping. No muss, no fuss. Keep an eye out for this addition in an update to After Effects coming in the next few weeks. In the mean time, be sure to head over to DAV’s TechTable for a great demonstration of After Effects directly working with P2 MXF files. As a bonus, he’s also showing the excellent Dynamic Link between After Effects and Premiere Pro.
