As a content creator, it’s important to understand why Quality Control is an essential part of the post-production process. Quality control helps to ensure that any project you work on meets the necessary requirements needed to ensure your content can be distributed, no matter whether it’s only being published on YouTube or going global on Netflix or to a traditional broadcaster. If your project fails its Quality Control, it may end up costing you both time and money. This can make or break the release of your project.
Lightworks is the only NLE with a native integration into a Video AQC (Automated Quality Control) platform - QScan - allowing video editors for the first time to be able to automatically QC their clips and sequences in their editing timelines helping to deliver finished projects to distributors or publishers faster than ever before and 100% accurate for their needs.
Modern distributors may need to present material in a wide variety of circumstances. A single production might be delivered to theatrical, broadcast and online channels at various resolutions and aspect ratios, in different file formats with different codecs and colourimetry, sound mixes, and several HDR implementations. Distributors expect to be able to import files to content distribution systems and broadcast servers as a zero-intervention process and will perform analysis to ensure that can happen without problems.
Because QScan can analyse a vast range of characteristics of a media file, it includes templates reflecting the requirements of many key distributors and covering a wide variety of everyday situations. For conditions not covered by a template, one can be modified or a new one created from scratch.
QScan can analyse a huge range of files via a web browser interface and become part of any workflow. Integration with Lightworks means that QScan can link users directly to a timeline region where problems have been detected, making fixes easy.
