You could also consider the NewTek Video Toaster for Windows NT. It's
very cheap compared to the DigiSuite, and it seems a lot faster than
the DigiSuite or other solutions of its kind. And it works directly
with LW too...
The only down side I can see for the Toaster is the lack of 3rd party
support, unlike the DigiSuite who has tons of software packages with
drivers directly linked to the hardware. With the Toaster you're stuck
with Speed Razor or the Toaster interface. On the DigiSuite you can
choose the package you want, like the very powerful Discreet Edit for
example. NewTek needs to work on its 3rd party support... :-) Speed
Razor is good, but there is much better out there...
I'm particularly impressed with what Aura can do in real-time. I
haven't seen anything else touch it yet, perhaps a Flame or Inferno,
but nothing for the price of the Toaster, and even 4-5 times the
During Siggraph, NewTek showcased Aura play-back 9 layers of D1-quality
video with transparency settings in real-time. Of course, that was a
demo, but still, it sounds impressive.
If you have a chance, arrange to see a demo, you won't regret it...
