ReQuest is a file import/export plug-in which adds native support for a number of image file formats, including Photoshop PSD. Using ReQuest, users can import and export files from Quantel’s QEdit, QEffects, and QUtility environments.
ReQuest imports Photoshop PSD layers files, including image layers with alpha, and layer masks if selected. Each Photoshop layer imports to a separate keyed still within Quantel’s clips bin, with correct positioning.
ReQuest also supports export to Photoshop PSD files (single layer), and import/export of a number of other file formats: Alias Pix Files (.pix), Chyron RGB and Still Files, Liberty (.im), Maya (.iff), Quantel (vpb), PICT, Pinnacle G Files (.g), PNG, Softimage (.pic), Wavefront (.rla), and Raw YUV.
ReQuest Import menu in Quantel
When importing, ReQuest browses a selected folder on your Quantel system. For supported image formats, ReQuest displays thumbnails, or filenames with other relevant data (such as width/height and color space). Users can then import files to Quantel’s clips bin, as either still images, or clips (when importing a numbered sequence of input files). Users can re-title upon import, or keep the same title as the imported filename.
ReQuest Export menu in Quantel
When exporting, ReQuest displays stills and clips on your Quantel system, displaying names and other optional data (such as width/height and color space). Users can then select an output folder, and export stills and clips to any of the supported file formats (clips will be exported to a numbered sequence of output files). Users can export material with or without alpha.
Please consult the ReQuest User’s Guide on the Resources tab above for further details on operation of this plug-in.
