Sonic updates Scenarist HD DVD software to v4.5 Sonic Solutions has announced Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring Software Version 4.5, the company's HD DVD authoring software. Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring further streamlines the creation of complex titles with support for Multiple Playlists, Secondary EVOBs, Chapter Point File Import, Scheduled Events and much more.
As well as new features, Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring now includes Sonic's popular Scenarist Designer and new Scenarist Formatter. The new software applications are a strong complement to Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring, providing a highly optimized workflow from graphics and HDi preparation through HD DVD pre-mastering and burning.

"With Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring, we are providing the authoring community the most complete solution for the creation of Hollywood's most intricate and detailed interactive HD DVD titles," said Matt Palmer, Director of Product Management at Sonic.

He added: "Based on over a year of development and extensive feedback from members of Sonic's High Definition Authoring Alliance (HDAA), Scenarist Advanced Content Authoring redefines workflow efficiency and delivers the playback compatibility and reliability that high-end production facilities have come to expect from the Scenarist brand."

This update also adds support for disc content that can be updated via the Internet, allowing content providers to refresh and add value to their titles even after they have been released into the market. "Scenarist Advanced Content has evolved into a mature platform for HD DVD production, with all of the features we need for even the most demanding authoring projects," said Richard Osborn, Producer at Abbey Road Interactive. "With the addition of both Designer and Formatter, this new version offers major workflow advantages that will enable us to complete projects faster and more efficiently than ever before."
