Las Vegas - Sony Creative Software, a provider of professional video and audio editing applications, announced Blu-print, its Blu-ray Disc authoring application and the brand-new Z Depth 3D subtitle offset editing application. As one of the first professional 3D Blu-ray Disc authoring products available on the market, the upgraded Blu-print 6 will be capable of authoring 3D titles in accordance with the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) 3D Blu-ray disc specification to enhance workflow capability for production facilities and professional video editors.
Blu-print 6 allows for easy import of MVC encoded content along with support of 3D menu graphics and subtitle graphics. 3D Blu-ray Java integration also allows for user interactivity like BD-Live. To assist editors creating 3D subtitles, the new Z Depth application generates the required offset metadata file needed in a 3D BD project allowing editors to more accurately and easily position subtitles when creating 3D Blu-ray Discs.
Blu-print 6 and Z Depth will be available in June 2010 through Sony Creative Software Professional Services.
