Jahshaka is a complete digital content creation suite for high end users.
It is the worlds first OpenSource Realtime Editing and Effects System.
Jahshaka takes advantage of the power of OpenGL and OpenML to give its users exceptional levels of performance.
Jahshaka currently support Linux, OsX, Irix and Windows, and Solaris is on the way!
Jahshaka is licenced to the public under the GNU GPL agreement.
Jahshaka allows you to
...all while sharing files, projects and clips with users on your network or around the world
and all using a single, open source application where the code is yours? that runs on practically any workstation?
- Edit with flexibility and speed
- Create effects in real time
- Animate with unlimited features
- Paint and design on moving video
- Create music with all the tools the pros use
- Work in any format at any resolution
Jahshaka v3.0 will let you do this, and much more. Jahshaka was written from the ground-up to work in different environments, and lets you use the tools you need to get the job done in real time. Thanks to the power of OpenGl and OpenMl you can do this on anything from PC's to Mac's to high-powered Sgi workstations and not have to worry about mixing video, audio and graphics card, installing custom hardware and drivers, or spending millions of dollars for high end speed, power and functionality?
Jahshaka uses todays next-generation hardware to do everything in real time, regardless of what box you are running on. Thanks to the power and economics of mass markets, todays pc's come with everything you need to create any kind of media you want. Todays graphics cards would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars just a few years ago? and deliver an unbelievable level of power and speed into your hands. This is the power that drives jahshaka.
Jahshaka's morphing interface allows you to work as a editor when you are editing, to work as a compositor when you are creating effects, as a audio enginer when you are mixing, and as a animator when you are doing 3d. It will even allow you to create your own hybrid interfaces to match your workflow.
This power and flexability has been unheard of, but its coming your way soon. Imagine a system simple enough to edit home videos and mix audio tracks, but powerful enough to edit HDTV, create film effects or animate a flock of seagulls.
Jahshaka fixes many of the compatability and file sharing problems that exist in large facilities today. The ability to run multiple seats of jahshaka off a single server, with full project and media sharing solve the problems of distributed vs shared storage. Everybody can use the same disk-array? and work together without the massive slowdowns of having to move large media files around your network. Jahshaka loves multi tasking, multi user, media sharing environments.
Not possible? It will be soon, and thanks to the power of open-source you can even teach it how to make coffee for you in the morning (no joke). Jahshaka will raise the bar when it comes to content creation? because its available as a free download? (with custom support packages available upon request)
So when you really need to go out and buy a system, it better be revolutionary - and lightyears ahead of what we have to offer.
Jahshaka, Serious tools for serious people.
Coming to a workstation near you soon?
Support Jahshaka and help build the industry.
