A host of new features go live for PlayStation 4’s video editing app
Today, we are releasing update 1.08 for SHAREfactory, which includes some very cool features. One of the biggest changes to SHAREfactory is the introduction of Track 2, which gives you the ability to add a second gameplay video from your Capture Gallery to your projects. This means your gameplay videos can use various picture-in-picture layouts for side-by-side gameplay video playback, with the ability to add effects. This replaces the previous Commentary Track and gives you more editing options to bring your creative videos to life, so we hope you’ll have fun with it!
We have also added Chroma-key support to video Commentary, so you can use green screen or white screen in your project, as well as a cut-out mode. Using Chroma-key effects, you can personalise your videos to look like a livestream with animated backgrounds, SHAREfactory theme art, as well as your own screenshots from your Capture Gallery.
For those who like to create playthrough videos, great news – we’re also increasing the video export time limit to 60 minutes. You can also export your SHAREfactory videos in the background while you are on the PS4 home screen. Plus, based on the community feedback, we’ve enhanced the Move Clip function so you can arrange your video clips much easier.
Other features in this update include:
- Text layers can now rotate.
- 2 new music tracks.
- 15 new filter effects.
- Video Commentary clips are now saved to the Capture Gallery for easier access and reuse in multiple projects.
- Trim Lock feature making it easier to trim clips while not altering the overall length of your project.
We’re eager to see your creativity using the new features of Track 2, plus the rest of the additions with this update. Our continued growth and support from the community keeps us working hard to enhance your video editing experience on PS4. Keep the comments coming, and have fun with 1.08!
