If you needed more proof that 3D stereoscopic tools are on fire, look no further than Sony Creative Software. At NAB 2011, the company behind Vegas Pro announced that the NLE solution now supports a comprehensive 3D workflow.

Vegas Pro 10.0d offers a range of new features, including improved closed captioning options, support for AMD's ATI graphics chipsets using OpenCL, and an improved track group workflow. Closed captioning support now provides broadcast editors with the ability to read and write closed captioning embedded in MPEG-2, enabling a unified workflow for EIA-608, EIA-708 and MXF delivery options. Vegas Pro 10.0d also incorporates timeline burning to full-frame 3D Blu-ray Discs.

Vegas Pro 10.0d expanded its GPU-accelerated AVC encoding support to video editing professionals using AMD ATI graphics chipsets which support OpenCL, the open standard for parallel programming of heterogeneous systems. This new feature enables faster project rendering in many cases when using the Sony AVC encoder for a more efficient workflow. Additional updates include MVC and MPO 3D file format compatibility from Sony cameras including TD10, NX3D1, TD300 and the Alpha and NEX series, providing users with added support for advanced camera and media technologies.

Sony Vegas Pro 10 - upgrade 10.0d coming in late April 2011


Vegas Pro 10.0d will be available for download in late April and is free for existing registered Vegas Pro 10 users, or $249.95 for owners of Vegas Pro 9 or prior. Vegas Pro 10.0d is also available for purchase at retailers worldwide for a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $699.95. Localized French, German, Spanish and Japanese versions are also available.

Sony Creative Software also announced a new upgrade to Z Depth, Z Depth 2.0, which will be released in May 2011. A significant upgrade to the Blu-ray 3D subtitling application, Z Depth 2.0 enhances the ability for 3D authoring companies to easily create required disparity metadata files for positioning of subtitles and interactive graphic menus in 3D Blu-ray Disc production. Combined with the 3D capabilities of Vegas Pro 10, Z Depth 2.0 provides automated depth value calculation of stereoscopic video and graphically displays the offset value in the preview window during recording and playback when preparing subtitles for 3D Blu-ray Discs. The latest version also provides additional support for Digital Cinema 3D production.

“I am thrilled to be joining the COW team,” said Debra Kaufman, newly named Associate Editor of Creative COW Magazine. “In an era in which so much coverage has shrunk to 300-word sound bites, I'm delighted to be able to cover the dramatic changes in our industry in depth. Additionally, I look forward to reaching a huge number of engaged readers working in production and post, in the U.S. and internationally. Publisher Ronald Lindeboom and Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson early on understood the importance of a web presence, and have created an astonishingly large audience both online and in print.”

Look forward to more great stories from Debra in Creative COW Magazine, and online here at CreativeCOW.net.

Creating Transitions with BCC 6 AE's Swish Pan Filter
  Play Video
Editors use transitions as a way to cut between scenes, typically creating an animated effect such as a dissolve or blur at the end of the outgoing clip and the beginning of the incoming clip. While most modern NLE systems ship with standard wipe transitions, there are some transition styles that are more of an in-camera effect rather than a synthesized gradient wipe or block dissolve. One of these effects, known as a Swish Pan, is created by panning the camera very quickly in a 180 degree arc, creating the look of a fast blur between the outgoing and incoming clips. Continuing in the tradition of making visual effects easy to create, Boris Continuum Complete 6 AE now includes a Swish Pan transition filter which is available free for registered BCC 6 AE users. In this video tutorial, we'll use the new BCC 6 Swish Pan filter to transition between a pair of clips.
