    Master Cut (Beta)

    Cloud service for fast, high-precision video correction utilizing camera metadata and cloud AI

    This site describes how to use Master Cut (Beta), a cloud service for impressive and efficient video pre-editing.
    Master Cut (Beta) enables Image stabilization, Color correction, and noise removal for uploaded clips, and in a single step, you can normalize uneven volume of clips shot in various locations.
    By using proxy movies with relatively smaller file sizes, you can avoid long uploads. Your corrections are applied to the original movies to export high-quality video.
    After efficient initial editing, your work is ready to transfer to non-linear editing software for finishing touches.
