New features in editing software Forscene, aimed at improving the cutting experience for both editors and edit-producers, have just been released to existing clients.
One of the enhancements of the cloud-based post production platform is the ability to import, display and edit track names directly on the timeline, and export them as part of an AAF. Others include optional clip-name display on the timeline and the introduction of a solo button which enables one-click, single-track monitoring.
There are multiple improvements to sequence logging in the browser-based suite, including the ability to log and store sequence logging information separately from the source. Also new is improved support for sharing published clips in the chat window, and support for HLS as a streaming format, with media arriving as ‘growing’ files.
Jason Cowan, business development director at Forbidden, said the company was ‘reintroducing’ Forscene at BVE 2016: “Forscene was originally developed and introduced to the local market as a logging and sync-pull solution, but the software is now capable of so much more. [We want] to help clients realise the potential that this software has to fundamentally change the way they approach post production.”
Forbidden’s expanded stand will also include a workflow lounge where industry experts are available to share and discuss their creative workflows.|
