Sony Creative Software Announces Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11

Sony Creative Software, a leading provider of professional video and audio editing applications, has announced the availability of a new version of its award-winning consumer video editing software Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11(VMSP11).
The latest version of the consumer-level application provides professional-grade stereoscopic 3D capabilities and added file format support, enabling users to produce more immersive media projects in nearly any format. Specifically, support for Sony MVC and MPO files allows users to work natively with these 3D formats directly on the Vegas Movie Studio timeline.
Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 is an easy-to-use, full-featured video editing application that provides users with the capabilities to create professional-looking, high-definition projects as well as continued support for standard-definition media.
VMSP11's powerful new tools previously only available in professional suites - including stereoscopic 3D editing, support for new file formats and precise audio editing controls - add exceptional value for hobbyists and video editing enthusiasts who want to provide content and distribute it via media devices and services such as PSP, Apple iPod, YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook.
Dave Chaimson, Vice President of Global Marketing for Sony Creative Software, said: "The easier it becomes to capture high-definition video on mobile devices, the more people are interested in editing that footage into movies that they can send to their family and friends.
"Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 provides professional-level tools and expanded support that allow consumers to create videos and share them with others in their social networks."
New features in Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11 include:

  • Audio Event Effects - Users can now apply effects directly to the event level for more precise control over the placement of audio effects
  • Titles and Text Plug-in - UtiliSing a broad selection of presets and templates, users can quickly and easily achieve dynamic and visually stunning text animation and effects which can be modified and adjusted for even further creative options; new features deliver pro-looking results through an intuitive and easy-to-use interface
  • Improved 'Render, New Project and Make Movie' Dialogs - Users can create new projects, render to specific file formats and deliver with increased efficiency and speed
