"The PS4's 1.7 update has added video editing software ShareFactory. How does ShareFactory compare to what the Xbox One offers?"
I think Share Factory is a AWESOME app. Easy to use. I'm not sure about the Xbox app, never used it so I can't compare.
That's a great answer .
I used ShareFactory for the first time yesterday to put together a small BF4 montage and it was great. I didn't even have to use a tutorial or guide, i thought it was very easy to use. Loved how you can scroll through your footage with the touchpad when selecting points to cut or split and the pre-loaded themes make it looks like it's an official Sony promo video XD I can't give an opinion on upload Studio for X1, but i haven't heard any negatives things said about it. Why do we have to compare them anyway?
@Lukas, you have been around here and are intelligent enough to know why Xbox and PlayStation are held in comparison so much. One reason is they are direct competiters, but the real reason these articles do it? Hits baby, all about the hits.
Personally, i find sharefactory to be good, but upload studio is much better. I think both work well though.
The Sony share Factory has much more options and content to customize your videos than the Xbox's upload studio has. The quality of the video capture is pretty much on par.
DS4 touchpad is really awesome feature, it helps a lot.
@ nicksetzer1 How so? Xbox gamers always repeating claims like "much better" and "miles ahead" and never explain why. I don't even think they know why. The process is much slower on Xbox One http://bit.ly/1kCRf94 Gotta "Snap" this and that, wait for the voice commands to respond, etc. The sharing feature is smoother on PS4 because it's more integrated in the system, with a dedicated Share button on the DS4 controller, which works 100% of the time and is quicker.
I was surprised and impressed when I heard Sony Vegas team made the app. I do hope they expand on it with updates in the future to add more fx and transitions and such. I also would like to see the default PS4 video player adopt the usage of the touchpad to skip forward/backward in the video timeline like in SHAREfactory. The touchpad only pause/resumes I think in fullscreen in the app though, otherwise I'd normally watch my vids in there.
if they put the full Vegas Pro and the other media editing software Sony has many people would buy the PS4 just for that.
Yeah if Vegas Pro comes out on PS4, the X1 will NEVER be able to catch up when it comes to editing suites. It really is something Sony should look into.
Xbox upload is great but I like the. Share button on the ps4 controller a lot better than having to yell into the Kinect
For one you mean TALK to the KINECT. Second I love the Share button as well, but I have yet to upload anything to social media directly. Still, the photo mode in Infamous is amazing, and I probably have taken 100 screenshots from the final 2 hrs of the game alone hahaha. Anyhow, I have used the xbox one's editor and it's good. Telling the Kinect to "Record That" works flawlessly. Probably the one command KINECT gets correct 99% of the time. As far as my PS4, I haven't used the new video editor as of yet, but I will as soon as my copy of Killzone arrives in the mail on Mon/Tue. I just ordered it last night for $30 new.
Yes your correct not yell but talk, I'm not trying to troll or start any wars I love pushing the button better,but upload has features
With the update you can also say "Playstation -> Record Video Clip" and "Playstation -> Save Video Clip" if you have a headset or PS camera.
According to most gaming sites that have reviewed Share Factory, they say it is an improvement on Microsoft's upload studio offering more functionality, but does that really matter that much? When twitch finally launched for xbone and it was the better version compared to what the ps4 had at launch, I didn't think that really mattered either. Both Sony and Microsoft will evolve their services often enough to where if they are lagging in one area or another at the moment, a few months from now they may have the upper hand in one particular area or the other. In the end, they both offer lots of features gamers want, and they both are missing some key features gamers need, so they both still have some work to do. But we've seen how much consoles evolve during a generation, and the ps4 and xbone will also evolve.
I honestly don't know. I haven't used the Xbox version. But I am absolutely loving ShareFactory.
They will both continually update. Its just important to get the basics out there. Anyone that does it professionally or semi professionally will use the usb and their pc. It would be smart though to add mouse and keyboard support as they continue to update it. Maybe offer a professional version for a cheap price, for psn+ members or to sell the console to serious editors.
Honestly don't know, but man the SHAREfactory is really good. It's better than I thought it would be, by miles. I loved adding music and being able to turn the the game / music volume and you can also trim the music you add. It's insanely easy to use. Basically SONY Vegas little brother. It has it's limits, but what it has, it gives you the potential to create some really good videos.
Who cares, I'll be playing games not making movies.
Sharefactory is an all round better editor to be fair.. upload is great, and simple to use but i do prefer options available on ps4. Xb1 video quality seems a bit better tho..
haven't used Share Factory yet... and I don't have a One.....so I can't comment on that the Share Factory video Sony release looked good, tho......except for the annoying chick haha
I think editing game videos is one of the best features of this generation and we have not even completed a year yet. So there is plenty time for improvement. My only gripe with Xbox one editing that you sony kids enjoy, we have to say, "Xbox record that" to get a video recorded. And kinect does not always hear us. I rather have a record that button instead of saying it. But at least we don't have to take our fingers off the controller for the mere second it takes to do it. So there is that plus to it albeit a small one. My xbox one edited titanfall video. http://youtu.be/L-UyV-L2FZM The titanfall themed overlay was added when the game came out. So hopefully I we can get something like that with every major launched game.
You don't have to take your finger off the controller. It records the last 15 minutes of gameplay automatically. If you're passionate about a specific moment you might be inclined to want to press that share button, but there's no point, as you'll have that already in your recorded video section. I don't think there's any real benefit to Kinect accepting your voice commands poorly, over and automated video capture, and a simple, yet deep and easy to use suite that offers a lot more.
They're both good but X1 is better for me as it also includes Upload, a place to watch people's creations. Made many friends through it too. Sony, bring us an app to share our videos with the world rrather tHan just friends.
I think SHAREfactory is better, but agree that an app like "Upload" needs to happen. Call it Playstation Showcase or something. Just make it happen.
Share factory is useful, with both gamer and developers benefiting. My only gripe is that i have to get a facebook account to upload footage, and i dont want one. Surely we shouldnt need to ?
You don't need to bro. Just after your video is rendered, go to capture gallery, SHAREfactory, and copy the video to a USB. Now upload it where you want to. That way you don't need Facebook.
Thanks Moe, that's helpful.
My fellow gamers, whether its better or not doesn't matter, what matters is that Sony and MS use this to bounce off of each other. Competition is good, both up there game each time a competitor brings something to the table. This is why we should all be nice to each other. Smile, its Friday.
Good to see some level headed people at N4G, it's becoming rare!
Haven't used the Xbox software, but what I have used and wish the ps4 had is the ability to click on a game and view videos of all the people who have uploaded them directly to Xbox Live.
Everything on the PS4 is better. Signed - Peter Parker.
I used Share studio yesterday and was very impressed with it. Can you guys please post any videos you have made using Share studio? I would like to see some creativity and how people is using it.
Hope the add support for K&M for easy use
Share factory is so easy to use, and fast. I think that's the strength.
Should be better, they've had time to look at the competition and put in their own improvements and features...
