In terms of value for money, Raptor RT2 falls down slightly as Adobe Premiere isn’t included in the bundle as standard, and the supplied editor, EzEdit, wasn’t able to take advantage of the hardware’s real-time capabilities. In the original DVRaptor design the analog in- and outputs were for overlay only. Some graphics boards only support overlay at bit colordepth. What is good is that Canopus’s effects plug-ins are well designed, and have a no-nonsense, business-like feel to them.
