Award-Winning Application Introduces Stereoscopic 3D Editing, Simplified Workflows and Added File Format Support for Consumers
Sony Creative Software, a leading provider of professional video and audio editing applications, today announces 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 produce content and distribute it via media devices and services such as PSP®, Apple iPod®, YouTube™, Vimeo and Facebook®.
“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,” said Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. “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.”
