  • What professionals are saying…

    “The new media bay is a big upgrade from VS3, I can have all my assets in one place to access very quickly.  It’s a big time saver. Spotting and trimming my clips in the timeline is now easier than ever. Plus, having multiple timelines in the same project is perfect for keeping older versions of the cut around to reference. Using streamers while composing has been amazing!  You have a clear reference to moments you want to sync to in the picture. It allows you you hit things even off the grid while playing parts in live.”

    Tim Jones - Marvel’s Thor:Ragnarok and Lego Ninjago

    “I’ve been a big fan of Video Slave for several years now. VS3 was a great upgrade from previous releases, but Video Slave 4 really ups the game with its new timeline feature. Now I can see where each of my video files from the Media bin are located as it relates to the project’s timeline. It’s really a game changer for me and my workflow.”

    Ron Aston - Emmy Award and MPSE Golden Reel Award Winning sound effects editor and sound designer.

    “With Video Slave 4, it’s clear that Non-Lethal Applications is dedicated to finding new ways of making life easier for composers and sound designers. The new features have elevated Video Slave from a must have peripheral tool to at this point being an extension of my Digital Audio Workstation. Whether I’m scoring in Cubase, editing in Pro Tools, or spotting the film with a director, Video Slave is always up and running.”
