Video Slave 4 is here!

Video Slave 3 is indispensable for both music and post-production workflows. It offers rock solid performance and features not found in other software, best if all it is DAW agnostic so you don’t need to either tolerate poor video performance or tie up your DAW with the video task, let Video Slave 4 and ADR Master do the heavy lifting!

We’ve been delighted by the feedback we’ve received since launching Video Slave 3 and used that feedback to develop not one but two new products; Video Slave 4 and ADR Master. The new products offer new features, improvements and bug fixes. Video Slave 4 and ADR Master both offer rock-solid playback of movies in sync to MIDI Timecode.

Version Independent New Features:

  • Video Slave/ADR Master has been rewritten from the ground up to clear the way for future Windows releases.
  • Video Slave/ADR Master now use PACE (machine or iLok 2/3) for perpetual licenses allowing users to take licenses with them from studio to studio.
  • Moved from a playlist-based to a timeline-based approach. This is clearly the biggest and most important change and it required surgery at the very heart of the application which now allows for editing with a high degree of flexibility.
  • Central project Media Bin to keep track of the files
  • Multiple timelines per project
  • Multiple video and audio tracks per timeline
  • Several use cases. Examples;
    • reel-based feature film
    • one timeline with all the reels at the respective hours
    • one timeline with tied reels for presentation
    • Improved Blackmagic and AJA performance
  • 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.”

    “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.”
