Cut Notes

The remote note-taking solution for iPad
"Cut Notes is a perfect example of how an iPad can supplement production & post production workflows."

Timecode-accurate note-taking

Cut Notes is an iPad note-taking app for post production professionals. Take notes on the fly using quick preset buttons, all synced to the timecode of your editing application. Used worldwide by studios and freelancers alike, Cut Notes allows you to focus on the cut instead of looking down to write.



Sync timecode from Kollaborate, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer / Symphony for Mac, Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Audition, Pro Tools and Final Cut Pro 6/7.

Note Keys

With a single tap of a notekey, the note is added instantly at the current timecode position. Create notekey sets for different tasks such as editing and mixing.

Manual Entry

Create a custom note at any time with the text box above the notekeys. Cut Notes will insert the note at the moment you first began typing so there’s no need to rush.

Full Customization

Change any notekey, create notekey sets and color code the keys.


Cut Notes can export notes to Final Cut Pro 6/7, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools (via the third-party application EdiMarker). Notes can be emailed, copied to the pasteboard, printed, uploaded to Dropbox or uploaded to Kollaborate. Importing a Marker List into Final Cut Pro or FCPX requires the free Cut Notes Marker Import utility for Mac OS X.
