EdiPrompt overlays cues on top of a movie window (see Requirements below). This includes the text of an actors line as well as a visual cue using either a streamer, pair of prompts or a counter. In addition, a progress bar can be displayed to show the duration of the cue, as well as the record status of Pro Tools and the cue or take number.
EdiPrompt can also mask the movie window in two different ways. The first provides the option to mask the whole movie window before or after a cue, while the other can mask the top or bottom of the movie window continuously to hide distracting editorial timecode numbers or text.
The cues generated by EdiPrompt can be triggered by:
MIDI files generated by EdiCue, EdiPrompt or EdiLoad. These are loaded into Pro Tools and shown on MIDI tracks. These MIDI commands are then sent to EdiPrompt when Pro Tools plays and records
Auto cues. These are automatically generated within EdiPrompt when Pro Tools plays or records. These are ideal for recording foley or voiceover to picture
External MIDI notes. Third party devices can trigger cues in EdiPrompt by sending it pre-defined MIDI notes. GPI’s can be converted to MIDI notes with devices like a JW Electronics Parallel to MIDI converter

Visual cues can only be overlaid on screens that are connected to a display port that shows up on the ‘Displays’ pane of the macOS System Preferences. Generally these are built-in Mac or graphics card display ports. The Pro Tools ‘movie’ window is positioned on this display so EdiPrompt can overlay its cues on top.EdiPrompt is not compatible with video peripherals that stream video directly from Pro Tools. For example: Nitris, Mojo, Blackmagic, AJA, and Canopus.
Cue beeps and take speech are played out of the sound port selected in the macOS System Preferences. To have access to this audio in Pro Tools, patch the sound output port into an input of the Pro Tools interface.
The only MIDI controller that can be connected while using the extended features of EdiPrompt is a HUI compatible controller (i.e. A 002, 003 or Command 8 midi controller cannot be connected simultaneously)
