Digital Heaven has released VideoSpace 3.0, a new version of the popular freeware disk space calculator widget for Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro editors. VideoSpace 3.0 adds support for ProRes 422 (Proxy), ProRes 422 (LT) and ProRes 4444 codecs introduced in Final Cut Pro 7.
By selecting a codec and frame rate then entering the desired duration, VideoSpace calculates how much disk space would be required. It is also possible to calculate in the other direction - by entering the available disk space, VideoSpace will display the corresponding footage duration for the current settings.
As well as a dashboard widget, VideoSpace is also available as a web application at videospaceonline.com for both desktop browsers and in a special version for the iPhone and iPod Touch. VideoSpace supports NTSC, PAL and HD formats and a wide variety of codecs including DV, DVCPRO50, DVCPROHD, HDV, XDCAM HD, ProRes and Uncompressed. The widget and desktop browser versions feature comprehensive options for number of audio tracks with sample rate and bit depth settings.
