Forbidden Technologies plc, the owner and developer of the cloud video platform FORscene, announced it has added new features and capabilities that strengthen FORscene's utility in news, sports, or traditional broadcast post-production environments.
FORscene now has two additional timeline video tracks with support for animated alpha channels. The additional tracks can be used for nondestructive edits, as overlays for cutaway material, to create picture-in-picture effects, or for logo placement. This FORscene upgrade also enables voice-over recording directly into the timeline, a convenient feature that allows users to add a track and record voice-overs while video is rolling.
Another new feature is FORscene's Server Lite software, which allows news producers to upload files to FORscene accounts from remote locations. Other enhancements include increased capacity for loading more than 120 files per second into the play window, the ability to import multiple CSV files with logging information, new account management features, and a new online user guide.
