Montage and Audio
Audio clips can be edited, arranged, stacked, and processed to generate soundtracks. There is no track limit because there are no tracks.
The program comes with a wide variety of studio-quality effects from Arboretum's Hyperprism suite of processors and more can be added via a flexible plug-in architecture, including the popular Ray Gun and Ray Gun Pro for cleaning up scratchy vinyl, tape hiss, hum, and other problem recordings.
Montage will also come with over 70 royalty-free audio clips from sound designer Frank Serafine (Star Trek, TRON, Poltergeist, Hunt for Red October, Virtuosity). Users of video programs who want to enhance their final movie with audio will find Montage an ideal complement to their current software.
Both audio and video can be easily time-stretched to accomplish anything from filling out a few seconds of a scene to creating awesome slow motion effects. Clips can be nudged frame by frame, and locked to the timeline to prevent accidental shifts. And the Overview window makes it extremely simple to zoom in on any portion of a movie, plus move individual clips and even entire scenes at once.
Montage and Text and Titles
Text features to display credits, section titles or even karaoke lyrics, font, size, type, color, style, alignment, scroll direction and auto clip duration, text against transparent background (for use on video) or user-defined background color.
Text boxes can be placed over video clips or keyed against an editable background with adjustable duration for scrolling.
