VK 2.1 Highlights:

* Event Management: Elect any number of events and conform just those events. * Event Filtering: One click and events can be sorted by source time or destination time * Event Alerts: Alerts in the status bar indicates the number of change events detected as well as the progress of your conform. * Precise Triggering Controls: VK users can now set both a destination hour, or hour and minute. * Expanded Format Support: VK 2.1 allows key number as well as ink number Cutlists to be loaded. * Intuitive EDL Management: Drag and dropping an EDL when there is no project now creates a blank project to store it. * Intuitive Import Support: Importing a Change Note automatically sets a project to 24fps.

The other distinct product for the audio post market from Virtual Katy is the VK Conformer -designed for the sole purpose of non- destructively conforming and recompiling Pro Tools sessions.

VK Conformer is cut from the original battle-hardened Virtual Katy software which was put to the digital audio post editing test on Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” movie trilogy.
