Cut Notes 1.0.3 released - feet and frames, Quick Start tutorial and more

Yesterday we released Cut Notes 1.0.3 which incorporates many of the feature requests and suggestions we have received from users. Cut Notes is an iPad app for quickly taking timecode notes during a screening.

We noticed that we had been receiving requests for features that were already in the app, so there is now a Quick Start tutorial when you first launch it to highlight the major features. There is also a link to the user manual in the Actions menu.

We've also made it much easier to change the timecode settings. Just click the little "i" button next to the timecode display and you can quickly modify the frame rate, starting timecode and various other settings. These can also be modified in the Projects menu as in previous versions of the app.

The biggest new feature is support for feet and frames instead of timecode, making Cut Notes much more useful in feature film environments.

Just press the "i" button, switch Feet + Frames to On and select your film type. Note that choosing this will limit your output options to formats that are capable of supporting feet + frames. You will not be able to export FCP markers or Avid locators from feet + frames projects.

There is also a new output option: Edimarker lists allow you to import notes into Pro Tools via the third-party application Edimarker.

Cut Notes for iPad is available for $7.99 on the iOS App Store. We recommend Project Overview in the Pro Media Tools bundle for managing markers exported from the app and bringing them into Final Cut Studio and Adobe Premiere Pro.
