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
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 agoâ€¦ 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-arrayâ€¦ 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.
