Sony Creative Software, a leading global provider of professional editing and authoring applications, today announced new innovative audio and video editing tools for professionals set for release this summer. The latest additions to the Sony Creative Software product line include: Spectral LayersTM, an audio editing platform featuring precise sound shaping capabilities and a unique visual workflow; and ThemeBuilderTM for Vegas¢ Pro, a plug-in that enables intelligent template building for professional video projects. Both products are scheduled for technology demonstrations in the Sony booth #C11001.
Now more than ever, video editors require robust editing tools like ThemeBuilder to automate repetitive tasks while retaining complete control over their projects. ThemeBuilder for Vegas Pro is one of the only plug-ins available that takes an existing timeline and develops a reusable theme, giving users the ability to quickly exchange media without wasting valuable production time, said Dave Chai"EN-US">
Automated editing with Edit-Intelligence: Replace assets without the need for manual re-edits and conform theme assets to the proper aspect settings of a new timeline. Users can compensate for different durations and relationships of new media without creating multiple timeline versions.
Replaceable text and media fields: Design custom, replaceable text and media fields and enter information into a single, simplified user interface. Users will be able to see how new media assets and text replacements will influence the Vegas Pro timeline.
Real-time Emulation and Error Testing: Verify the technical completeness of a Theme with real-time emulation, giving users insight into how their Themes will behave on other users editing environments.
Spectral Layers Feature Highlights:
Precise Audio Editing: Work with audio directly on the spectral display, dividing or un-mixing audio files into discrete, user-defined layers that can be processed independently and reintegrated to achieve perfect master files. Users can also remove unwanted noises and artifacts while leaving the surrounding audio data intact, perform pitch correction on user-selected components of an audio file, and rearrange events in an audio file.
Audio Extraction Tools: Modify area and frequency selection using a range of user-defined sensitivities and tolerances, use Clone Stamp to replace audio with new data selected from anywhere in the file, use Harmonic Selection to intelligently select harmonics in user-defined amounts and orders, and more.
Enterprise Edition: In addition to all of the aforementioned features, users of the Enterprise Edition can import 32-bit 192 kHz files, create multichannel audio files from a mono or stereo source file, and more.
ThemeBuilderTM and Spectral LayersTM are in the final stages of development and will be available this summer. Visit Sony Creative Software at NAB for more information.
