*Note: In Final Cut Pro, you can use SheerVideo for real-time capture, export, playback, cutting, and import,
but unfortunately Final Cut Pro still does not support real-time effects for third-party codecs such as SheerVideo.
If you would like to see real-time transitions and effects with SheerVideo in Final Cut Pro RT,
please send a friendly suggestion to the FCP team.
Thanks to Synchromy technology,
SheerVideo now lets you edit RGB footage such as digitized film and synthetic imagery using Y'CbCr video tools,
and edit Y'CbCr video footage using RGB tools,
without worrying about generational loss or even first-generation loss.
