Sony Catalyst Utter Fail
on Apr 22, 2016 at 1:55:08 pm

At the NAB SHOW 2016, Sony Creative software completely disappointed me. First of all, they brought an intern who had started with Sony a day before to help demonstrate Sony Catalyst. She had NEVER SEEN THE PROGRAM BEFORE THE SHOW. Then some new programmer (the old guys I knew from the past must have been dismissed) came over and started to tell someone that they were going to be changing the program to meet the needs of its end users. One of these changes was removing a function I had previously asked for in the Catalyst Edit software, which allowed you to change the playback speed envelope on individual clips. Finally, they don't have an upgrade program for previous owners of Catalyst, and have moved from a purchase to monthly subscription model. I wonder which end users asked for that change? I also have spent the last 13 years using Sony Vegas Pro, which hasn't seen an upgrade for two years. If anyone has any intention of using Sony Creative software programs, don't. The only program that might be of any good use is Catalyst Prepare, which is good for transcoding and grading .mxf Slog 2 and 3 footage. Otherwise, it's a bust.

I realized that I have purchased either complete versions or upgrades with Sony products almost 15 times. I'd say I'm a pretty well seasoned user. I have made do with SVP for the past two upgrade-less years, and I think since I paid for Sony Catalyst Prepare V2015 and SC Edit 2015, I'll just use them until I can't anymore.
