Hello PlayStation fans! Since launching our free editing app Share Factory Studio for PS5 with the console’s launch, we’ve been hard at work to continue to enhance the on-console editing experience – so players can creatively bring to life and share their epic gameplay moments. We are pleased to announce some new updates we’ve made to Share Factory for PS5, which will be available starting today.
First up is a feature our community has asked for – an increase in the number of clips for your tracks. Below is the new clip count you can expect to see for your Share Factory Studio projects:
- Track 1 clips increased from 50 to 100
- Track 1 transitions increased from 49 to 99
- Music tracks increased from 12 to 24
- Track 2 clips increased from 10 to 20
We’ve also improved the overall editing experience – here’s a roundup of updates launching today for Share Factory Studio on PS5:
- A fresh new look for Track 2 with tapestry now available as well as added support for Layouts and Frames.
- Support for HDR screenshots.
- Improved track visualization with Track 1 and Track 2 now featuring icons indicating if your clip is in HD, 4K and/or HDR.
- Improved Clip and Screenshot Management and integration with the Media Gallery, allowing you to sort your videos and screenshots by Favorites that you have marked.
These new updates will enhance the current features already available on the Share Factory Studio app for PS5 – for example, you can now create videos up to 4K resolution at 60fps with HDR support. such as 4K/HDR 60fps support for video clips high-quality Creator Packs, music tracks, transitions and stickers, as well as the support of Sound FX.
It has been seven years since we first introduced SHAREfactory for PS4 in April 2014, and we are so pleased to see the engagement and support from the PlayStation community for this feature. The idea for SHAREfactory came together when we first learned about the video recording feature that was launching on PS4, as well as the industry-first innovative Share button on the DualShock 4 wireless controller.
Many of our team members have had previous experiences in game development, and a few of us also had experience with video editing and multimedia design. As gamers ourselves, we believed the PlayStation community would have fun creating personalized videos to share with their friends, so we thought it would be pretty neat if we could create a video editing app that players could use right from their PS4. Once the idea was formed, it wasn’t too long after that SHAREfactory was born, and we have been blown away by the creativity and how players were using the app ever since. Since then, we’ve listened to the PlayStation community’s feedback and incorporated ongoing improvements and enhancements to SHAREfactory over the years to make the editing experience a smooth one for gamers.
We hope you enjoy the new updates for Share Factory Studio on PS5 and we look forward to seeing even more creative gameplay moments from the community. Happy editing!
