The Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite is a complete package for video editing, audio editing, and disc-creating, and it differs from its powerful relative, Sony Vegas 12, only in being short of some top-grade features (and capacities) for top-grade productions. The package comes on an installation DVD and includes Movie Studio Platinum 12, Sound Forge Audio Studio 10, and DVD Architect Studio 5, all from Sony, and it also includes Red Giant's Magic Bullet Quick Looks, an application you'll surely use, a collection of about 100 "film look" presets for your projects.

Movie Studio Platinum 12 has about a dozen new feature additions over version 11, and each one is highly impactful. At the same time, like in version 11 and in the versions prior, Movie Studio Platinum remains an "open" application, meaning you can drag and drop various types of file formats onto the same timeline and then edit them without having to convert them all to one same format. Such "openness" is one of the reasons why Sony Vegas, and its off-shoot, Movie Studio, caught recognition in the previous several years. Another reason is that both work great on minimal system requirements, like on only a 2 GHz processor. A third reason is that both have quality audio tools right within them, and you thus won't have to switch to other applications to work on the sound of your videos. (Although Sound Forge, which comes with this Suite, is a separate application, you may not need to jump to it for some of your smaller projects; but even when you do, the transition and collaboration will be seamless.)

OVERVIEW

Capture the Action
You've shot video on your camera or phone, and now you want to bring all the clips together and make a movie. Easy! Import multiple file types into Movie Studio Platinum and edit them on the same timeline. Sort the imported clips to decide which work best in your project.
New Ways to Share
Publish movies to Pixelcast without ever leaving the application! Construct a video or slideshow of your vacation, a family event, or a get together with friends. Then send a link to others to check out your experience or invite them to collaborate by uploading photos and video of their own.
Easy Project Creation
Start your project out right. Use the New Project dialog to ensure that each project is set up with the exact settings you need to produce stunning movies, every time. Select the option that best matches your video (AVCHD, Blu-ray Disc, stereoscopic 3D, and more) and Movie Studio sets your Project Properties for you.
Sounds and Titles
Round out your movie with exciting soundtracks and beautiful titles. Import your own music from CD or MP3, record instruments directly into the program, or select from the 20 included Sony Sound Series: Production Music audio files to create the perfect music bed. The choice is yours! Animate text in your movies with the Titles & Text tool.
Up the Excitement
Boost colors, apply slow motion, or add other effects to enhance any video project. Add effects to an entire track or to individual events, and view your changes instantly in the Preview Window.
Transitions and Dissolves
From standard dissolves to sensational 3D, add artistic style between scenes with video transitions. Change the duration of each transition with a simple drag of the video or audio event.
Build Something Great
Add up to 20 video and 20 audio tracks to each Movie Studio Platinum project. Create a movie with multiple video layers for compositing or picture-in-picture-style scenes. You can also record multitrack audio directly into the program to create the perfect atmospheric soundtrack.

VIDEO EDITING

Simple Editing Tools
Use new tools like the Split and Trim buttons in the toolbar for speedy and precise editing. Use the Split button to break an event into sections. The new Trim button helps to quickly remove excess footage from the beginning or end of your project.
Stereoscopic 3D
Create stereoscopic 3D projects as easily as 2D projects, no additional tools required. Preview and deliver projects in side by side, line alternate, and anaglyphic modes. Even if you don't have an expensive 3D monitor, you can create anaglyphic 3D projects, preview them with a pair of inexpensive anaglyphic glasses, and then deliver the projects any way you want.
Start a Dialog
The New Project, Render As, and Make Movie dialogs make it easier for users of any skill level to create new projects, export completed projects, or burn existing projects to a DVD or Blu-Ray Disc.
Video Plug-In Architecture
The video effects plug-in architecture, based on the Open Effects Association platform, enables third-party plug-in developers to design and produce advanced video effect plug-ins more easily. Additional plug-ins offer Movie Studio Platinum users hundreds of new effects and special techniques.
Image Stabilization
Reduce jitter and shaky video footage with image stabilization technology. Shaky video footage, shot from handheld camcorders and inexpensive portable pocket devices, can quickly be salvaged with several optimized presets.
Quick Production Tools
Be more productive! Download Fasst Apps plug-ins by Vasst to speed up editing processes such as lower-third creation and marker placement.
Secondary Color Corrector
Adjust color differences in videos shot with multiple camera setups or lighting situations. Enhance dull, washed-out footage, or make specific color ranges stand out.
Easy Slideshow Creation
Quickly create dynamic slideshows from a set of images with a few simple clicks. Create pan/zoom effects and transitions across a collection of still images.
White Balance
Make yellow or blue video look natural again. Users can automatically adjust the color of a clip, or entire video track, with poor white levels simply by using the white balance plug-in tools.
Transport Controls
Play your video from the Trimmer and Video Preview windows. Transport controls provide intuitive and immediate command over editing, as well as improve the overall workflow and experience.

AUDIO TOOLS

Add Music
Access up to 20 royalty-free Sony Sound Series: Production Music soundtracks. Each Production Music soundtrack comes in four different lengths. Choose the one that best fits your movie, or tweak the file any way you want. You can also import your own music directly from CD or MP3.
Live Recording
Record your own voiceover and music into Movie Studio Platinum. Work with up to 20 tracks, all of which can be used to record audio. You can also record different takes and use one or all of them in your project.
Restore Audio
Ensure a high-fidelity soundtrack. The Audio Restoration plug-in lets you remove clicks, pops, and other unwanted noise from your music and audio files.
Audio Event FX
Audio Event effects provide more precise control over the placement of audio effects as you can apply unique effects directly to events.
Zplane Elastique Timestretching
With élastique Pro technology, you can perform dramatic time stretches and pitch-shifts of audio tracks while retaining maximum sound quality.
Surround Sound Mixing and Encoding
Import multichannel (5.1) source files from your camcorder. Use the surround sound mixing and panning tools to create surround DVD soundtracks. Encode AC-3 stereo or 5.1 mixes with the included Dolby Digital AC-3 encoding software.

DVD and BLU-RAY DISC AUTHORING

Easy DVD and Blu-Ray Disc Creation
Movie Studio Platinum comes with DVD Architect Studio software so you can easily create and burn professional-looking DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. You'll be creating picture slideshows, single-movie DVDs, music compilations, and menu-based DVDs on your computer in no time!
DVD Preview
The Preview window allows you to watch your project on a simulated television monitor with a virtual remote control. Use the buttons on the remote control to navigate and play your movie.
Extensive Video and Audio Support
DVD Architect Studio software supports today's popular video and audio formats so you can make DVD and Blu-ray Disc projects that will play on almost any DVD/BD player or DVD/BD-capable computer
Burn Directly from the Timeline
Burn a DVD or Blu-ray Disc directly from the timeline. This method is fast and makes it incredibly easy to create a single-movie DVD or Blu-ray Disc so that you can share your masterpiece with friends.
