Sony’s New Editing Suites for Vegas Pro and Movie Studio Platinum
Sony Creative Software has just released two new 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 FXhome, a London-based development company, and both can dramatically enhance productions with professional special effects via a seamless and integrated workflow. Vegas Pro 12 Suite offers a diverse bundling of professional audio and video editing applications, soundtracks and more, while Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 has all the creative tools 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 utilize effects and editing tools. Ideal for beginning filmmakers, HitFilm 2 Express lets users 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 gives video editors the ability to achieve the realistic and dramatic look they desire in their productions,” reports Dave Chaimson, Sony Creative Software’s VP of global marketing. The suite also allows users to easily edit video in almost any format, including high definition and stereoscopic 3D. And extensive audio and video production tools help editors achieve feature-film results with a wide variety of delivery options.
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. It also includes Hitfilm 2 Ultimate, the perfect tool for adding sophisticated visual effects and true 3D compositing. Users can master audio, automate editing workflows, and add music soundtracks. And finished projects can be burned to DVD or Blu-ray Disc, or rendered to a variety of professional formats. “Vegas Pro 12 Suite exemplifies Sony Creative Software’s dedication to offering cutting edge, integrated professional products,” says 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.”
Sony Creative Software’s Movie Studio Platinum: Visual Effects Suite 2 retails for $199.95 (MSRP) while the Vegas Pro 12 Suite retails for $1,199. (Upgrades are also available for Vegas Pro 12.)
