Most non-linear editing applications are only available for specific operating systems and must be installed locally on a computer. Not with FORscene.
FORscene provides professional editing tools in a SaaS package for all video industries including Broadcast post production, News, Sports, and Corporate Professional environments.
FORscene’s video platform allows you to take advantage of Cloud computing by enabling the centralisation of material and collaboration in workflows.
I was able to attend an online meeting with a member of Forbidden Technologies, the creator of FORscene. There I got a full understanding of how the program works. I have to admit, I think it’s a genius idea. I love that you can store your media in the cloud and be able to edit anywhere on any computer. You can even edit using an Android-powered phone.
After the meeting, I was given an account to give FORscene a try. I found some of the icons a little confusing at first, but other than that it was easy to use. I love the patent-pending navigation bar for scrolling through clips.
I also really liked the amount of metadata you can add. Producers can add comments to certain sections of an edit or clip.
While you can use FORscene for full editing, you also can export XML, AAF, or EDL for doing a refined edit and color grading. Since FORscene is in the cloud, there’s no need to update software! New features can be suggested and added all the time.
And, if you ever need help, there’s a built-in chat client that allows you to talk to other editors and the creators of FORscene.
FORscene is being used by professionals across the globe. For example, FORscene was used during the 2012 Summer Olympics by NBC and 65 other countries!
Overall, I am very impressed with Forbidden Technologie’s FORscene. They did an excellent job with editing in the cloud.
