    The latest generation of digital SLRs shoot spectacular HD video and give filmmakers a wide range of creative control from interchangeable SLR lenses to low-light sensitivity. However, one drawback has been the H.264 codec they use to record video. Most non-linear editing systems cannot play back these files in real time unless you have an extremely fast computer. There can also be reliability problems with a large number of files in the project. This is where DVFilm EPIC I comes in.

    The EPIC I plugin for Sony Vegas Pro 9 allows you to edit DSLR's H.264 Quicktime files in real time by using our "INSTANT EDIT" method. You can edit in real time, on practically any machine! The Instant Edit method is totally transparent: that means NO transcoding, NO swapping files, NO hassles! Epic can also handle hundreds of files with hundreds of effects and transitions with excellent stability and well-controlled memory usage.

    The way it works is simple:

Follow DVfilm on Twitter Join DVFilm on Facebook 1. Open the Epic Control Panel

2. Set the options as described in our QuickStart Guide, then start Sony Vegas Pro 9.

3. In Sony Vegas Pro 9, when you drag H.264 clips into the timeline and assemble your rough cut, Epic I automatically prepares for realtime playback in the background. Once it's ready the playback instantly becomes real time for that clip.

4. When you are finished with your edit you simply click the Roman Column (see far left) to High Quality and you can then export to DVD, Blu-Ray, or to whatever is your final format.

5. You can also use the Vegas "Preview Half" and "Preview Full" modes to switch back and forth between real time and High Quality.
