Kyno 1.3 has landed, bringing with it a productivity overhaul effective for all industries and
professions. There are multiple enhancements to transcoding, batch renaming, filtering, Kyno’s
Premiere Pro integration, and much improved keyboard support for our power-users.
Many of these improvements are driven by feedback from our brilliant user community, for which we are
Kyno 1.3 extends usability functions across multiple workflows, creating easier access to Kyno’s most commonly used tools:
Shortcuts – New keyboard shortcuts allow for faster workflows, enabling users to quickly send files to Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro, export to Excel, toggle drilldown, shift between different viewpoints and more
Transcoding – The dialogs for renaming and transcoding single files have been extended, giving users the full range of presets and variables as batch operations
Batch tagging – Shot lists can now be built in parallel to marking frames for still export
Filters – Users can now filter material based on scene, shot, take and more descriptive metadata fields
Pre-analyze content – Kyno 1.3 includes the option to generate content tab thumbnails in advance, speeding up the screening and logging of footage
Cached data – Thumbnails and technical metadata now remain intact when moving files around within Kyno.
Metadata – Exported subclips inherit all descriptive metadata from the original clip, making team workflows (often based on pre-edit material) more efficient
Adobe Premiere Pro
Kyno 1.3 adds new features to increase the flexibility of its Premiere Pro integration:
Exports – Subclips can now be used as duration markers in Premiere Pro. This offers a great new option for a smooth workflow for Premiere users who use markers to organize their editing projects
Roundtripping – When re-importing XML, all contained metadata fields are automatically added to Kyno metadata. This allows people to use metadata, added during their editing project, to be used in Kyno workflows such as batch still frame or Excel shotlist export.

There is so much about Kyno I really love – the all-round functionality is key for me and massively supports my everyday workflow. It feels like having an assistant who does all the dirty work for you.
