Comes with ProType Titling technology, Multicamera editing tools, 32-bit floating point video processing.
Official status: superseded
Installed, after a bit of trouble getting dotnet and MSVC++ 2005 to install (not sure what made it work; just kept trying.)
Online registration failed, but that may be an issue with the Sony server. "Register from another computer" also failed initially, probably for the same reason. Had to chat with a support person from sony, then it worked, but online registration still failed.
What does not
Crashes when run with error message: "Failed to initialize script host." (Also a bunch of warnings and errors in the wine console output.)
Process continues, and uses CPU, and gives an "Exception thrown" dialogue when killed, but never does anything further.
What was not tested
None of the apps features were tested, because it did not start.
