Sony Announces New Editing Suites

Sony Creative Software has released two suite packages, Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 and Vegas™ Pro 12 Suite.
Both come equipped with versions of the visual effects software HitFilm 2 from London-based development company, FXhome. These new collections enable users to dramatically enhance their productions with professional special effects via a seamless and integrated workflow. Vegas Pro 12 Suite also offers a diverse bundling of professional audio and video editing applications, soundtracks, and more.
Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 has all the creative tools needed to produce professional-looking movies. Sony Creative Software offers interoperability between HitFilm 2 Express and Movie Studio Platinum 12 to turn ordinary videos into entertaining masterpieces. Users can seamlessly move media between applications to efficiently utilise effects and editing tools from both products. Ideal for the beginning filmmaker, HitFilm 2 Express enables users to add visual intensity to movies with advanced 3D compositing, extensive ‘film-look’ filters, and over 100 visual effects.
"With a range of effects, like smoke, explosions, and muzzle flash, the inclusion of HitFilm 2 in both Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 and Vegas Pro 12 Suite give video editors the ability to achieve the realistic and dramatic look they desire in their productions," said Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. The suite also allows users to easily edit video in almost any format, including high definition and stereoscopic 3D, while extensive audio and video production tools help editors achieve feature-film results in their studios, with a wide variety of delivery options.
Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 – New Feature Highlights:
· Application Interoperability: Easily and seamlessly move media between Movie Studio Platinum and HitFilm 2 Express
· Visual Effects: Access more than 100 effects for blur, distortion, colour manipulation and more. Combine multiple effects to create entirely unique results.
· Speedy Editing: Basic editing is now easier and faster with Split and Trim buttons on the main toolbar.
· Multiple Tracks: Produce intricate video projects or record multi-track audio with up to 20 video and 20 audio tracks.
· 64-bit Support: Access more system RAM when working on larger projects for a better editing experience.
· Straightforward Windows: Setup your project for AVCHD or stereoscopic 3D with the New Project dialog. Deliver a movie in a variety of formats with the Make Movie window. Project setup and delivery has never been easier.
The Vegas™ Pro 12 Suite is a full-featured production environment for video editing and compositing, multi-track mixing, sound design, visual effects, and disc authoring. Included in this major editing suite is Hitfilm 2 Ultimate, the perfect tool for advanced filmmakers and industry professionals who want to add sophisticated visual effects and true 3D compositing to their projects. Master audio in Sound Forge™ Pro 10, automate your editing workflow with Production Assistant, and add the perfect musical background with 100 Sony Sound Series: Production Music soundtracks. Burn finished projects to a DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ with DVD Architect™ Pro 6, or render them to a variety of professional formats.
"Vegas Pro 12 Suite exemplifies Sony Creative Software’s dedication to offering cutting edge, integrated professional products," says Dave Chaimson. "This bundle includes some of our biggest and brightest professional applications for multimedia production and adds a new workflow with one of the most powerful visual effects tools on the market. This bundle is the professional editor’s one-stop shop."

· Application Interoperability: Send video events from the Vegas Pro timeline directly to HitFilm 2 Ultimate. As effects are added and saved in HitFilm 2, the changes instantly appear in the Vegas Pro timeline, no rendering or “flattening” of the project is required.
· Dynamic Video Editing Tools: Access interactive, powerful timeline trimming with the Expanded Edit mode. Use the Smart Proxy workflow for improved editing performance.
· Precise Audio Editing: Import, record, edit, and export high-quality 24-bit, 192 kHz audio files, with sample-based audio precision, and multichannel file editing and processing.
