DrasticPreview SDK

Overview

With the DrasticPreview SDK, your application can:

  • Open common production media file formats
  • Play and display their video and automatically attached audio content
  • Access metadata information embedded in the files
  • Control playback, positioning, speed and active area
  • Optionally access AJA, Bluefish444 and other video boards for output
The DrasticPreview SDK will automatically search out sidebar audio and metadata files, allowing your application to access them as a cohesive unit.
