Upgrade your current Catalyst Prepare license to a license for Sony's Catalyst Production Suite, which combines the power of the entire Catalyst software family, which includes Catalyst Browse and Catalyst Edit, in addition to Catalyst Prepare. Catalyst Browse gives you instant access to the clips on your recording media, whether in the field, or in studio. Catalyst Prepare lets you import your footage from the camera, organize it, enhance it, and move it on to Catalyst Edit to cut, finish, and deliver your project. Together, the Catalyst family provides a smooth and seamless workflow whether you are working with 4K or HD source material. Additionally, the Catalyst applications have full support for Sony RAW files and S-Log gamma, letting you make the most out of the high dynamic range and wide color gamut of professional Sony digital cinema cameras throughout the entire production pipeline.

Workflow

Catalyst Browse
Catalyst Browse provides a quick in-field confidence check. Apply the appropriate color look from your Sony Pro camera for an instant, realistic view of what you've shot, so if you need to make adjustments and shoot again, you know that sooner than later. Check each file, review extensive metadata, and copy any clip to your computer drive.
Catalyst Prepare
With the powerful Catalyst Prepare media prep tools, view and back up your entire media image and then import and organize your clips into meaningful libraries. Make color adjustments, apply looks, set in/out points, establish multichannel audio assignments, and even cut together a rough edit. Then, access all of this work in Catalyst Edit and get on with the production.
Catalyst Edit
With Catalyst Edit you pick up right where you left off in Catalyst Prepare without dropping a frame or missing a beat. Together as the Catalyst Production Suite, they create a flowing integration that provides you with a seamless and fast workflow. Access your Catalyst Prepare libraries directly and cut your project together quickly and creatively. The focused toolset gives you the essential cutting tools you need to turn your ideas into the expression of your creative mind.
