PS4 1.7 SHAREfactory app gets trailer, video editing tools showcased

Wednesday, 23rd April 2014 09:38 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4′s 1.7 update will add Sony’s SHAREfactory app into the mix, a tool that gives players greater control over the videos they capture, along with a suite of special effect options. A trailer has been released that outlines the new features.


We reported on the PS4 1.7 update recently, along with other new additions coming to Sony’s console.

Here’s the SHAREfactory trailer:

As you can see, the tool enables players to add stickers, text boxes, transitions and picture-in-picture commentary to their clips.

Over on YouTube, SHAREfactory senior producer Stuart Platt wrote, “I am the Sr. Producer on the SHAREfactory team and we thought it would be really cool to show off a project that was edited in our offices that show off a number of features in the application. We are really excited to see what PlayStation fans will create and share once SHAREfactory is released. We hope you like it!”

When a gamer asked how Platt uploaded the clip to YouTube, he replied, “I exported to USB and uploaded,” suggesting that PS4′s next update will allow for greater control over player clips.

Another chap said that the video quality was “shit”, to which Platt replied, “Videos shared from PlayStation 4 are rendered out at 720p. The YouTube default playback setting is 360p and that may be what you are seeing.”

Finally, Platt confirmed that users will be able to import their on music to SHAREfactory using a USB device. It’s unclear if tracks can then be laid over footage at will, as this could lead to some copyright issues.

We’ll have more on SHAREfactory as it comes.

    Could the actress have been any more douchey? I know this is what she is instructed to do, but whoever directed her put me off ever sharing videos online.

    Also, for an app called sharefactory, can you only share to usb? This is on the SHAREfactory programmers to work out how to get it onto youtube directly.

    Love the image Sony must have of there customers if they believe they would relate to this.

    My guess is they have spent to much time on /r/pcmasterrace and now think they all drink mountain dew and eat doritos.

    This SHAREfatory App is created by the same people behind Sony Vegas editing suite so expect a robust editing tool.

    @2, typically the problem lies with Google and YouTube itself. I’d imagine Sony has been talking to Google since day one, and Google probably just doesn’t see the rise in gameplay sharing as big as we do because they do focus on much more meaningful projects on a regular basis.
