Announcement 1 of 2: Catalyst Browse
This is a free Mac & Windows app that reads in Sony video files and writes several formats, plus Sony Ci cloud upload. Built by Wisconsin-based programmers with help from our Sony colleagues from around the world.
Announcement 2 will come in a small number of weeks from now: Catalyst Prepare
Prepare is a low-cost Mac & Windows app that takes Browse a giant leap further, adding read support for third-party formats and several organization workflows including storyboards, color-correction and rough-cut export to several NLEs.
I’ve been working on Prepare and am really proud of what we’ve assembled. The code under the hood is some of the best I’ve ever seen.
