VLab Motion is a non-linear digital video editing system for the Amiga based on Motion-JPEG. Video can be digitally recorded onto a hard drive, edited, enhanced with effects, and played back at 50/60 fields-per-sccond, full-frame, in real-time! In a single second, VLab Motion compresses approximately 27 megabytes of data into 0.2 to 2.5 megabytes on the fly! VLab Motion turns your Amiga into a tape-less video recorder.
VLab Motion's main program MovieShop, controls the digitizing of audio and video, editing of captured scenes, arranging of the play order, and applying of the effects to create your video "movie." Because this is a non-linear system, you have random access to all recorded information. There is no need to waste time rewinding and fast-forwarding tape. Everything is right at your fingertips.
Scenes can be arranged and rearranged in any order you want. VLab Motion frees you from having three video decks (two source and one recording) for basic A/B rolls. Now all you need is one!
A full suite of digital video effects are available for A/B roll effects like wipes, fades, and fly-offs, as well as image processing effects. This includes compositing multiple video sources. Because all effects are digitally rendered.
