iPad – Cut Notes

Digital Rebellion LLC today announced the availability of Cut Notes for iPad, a tool for taking timecode notes on set or during a screening. If you are a Producer, Director or Editor that still hand-writes timecode during a screening, say Hello to Cut Notes.

As simple as tapping Play along with your Editor, you’ll never again worry about manually writing timecode next to your thoughts during a screening.

With a single tap of a Note Key, your notes can be a short as one word or an entire phrase, all added instantly at the current timecode. Cut Notes frees you from looking at what you’re writing and allows you to focus on what’s important: the cut.

Change any Note Key, create new pages of Note Keys, all centered around your workflow. Cut Notes tailors to your Post Production needs.

Cut Notes is platform independent. Whether you’re screening a DVD, a QuickTime file the Editor sent out, or sitting in an edit bay with your team, Cut Notes just works. After you’ve made your notes, Cut Notes can e-mail Avid Locator or Marker List files, which can be imported into NLEs like Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, and more. Cut Notes can also e-mail, copy, and print your notes using AirPrint. Importing a Marker List into Final Cut Pro requires the free Cut Notes Marker Import utility for Mac OS X available from http://www.digitalrebellion.com/cutnotes.

Swipe all the way to the left to make notes with the keyboard if a Note Key doesn’t apply.

Have as many projects as you want, at any of the common frame rates. Inside each project you can have an unlimited number of cuts. You’ll always be able to reference an older cut in case you think your Editor missed something from the last round of notes.

“Cut Notes is a perfect example of how an iPad can supplement production & post production workflows.” 
– Craig Bergonzoni, Editor/Producer 

“I’m really happy with the software… I’d feel comfortable using Cut Notes in a screening with executives.” 
– Chris Chris Losnegard, Story Producer

Cut Notes is priced at $7.99 and is available for the iPad on the iTunes App Store.
