DrasticPreview SDK

Overview

This area contains legacy material from previous Drastic Technologies websites. It is provided for reference only, and contains information, products and links that may no longer exist and which are no longer supported by Drastic.

The DrasticPreview SDK has been replaced with the DTMediaRead SDK. The capabilities listed below are indicative of the file read support we can provide for your application.

(Legacy) 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.
