That may not have anything to do with the Sony Creative Software folks.

Sony MCS (Media Cloud Services) is a separate division located in Culver City California and has nothing to do with Sony Creative Software (the makers of SVP) located in Middleton Wisconsin.

Actually, Catalyst Prepare has an option to upload your clips to Sony CI so the two teams are aware of each other and are probably working together. This is the future platform for Sony.

Well if the future of any editing out of Sony is based on Catalyst they need to move
a little faster in my opinion, or they will be out of the game.

No, Sony CI doesn't need Catalyst. It works independently. I was just pointing out that Catalyst works with Sony CI. CI is Sony's cloud platform for collaboration and several vendors are offering this including independent vendors that don't have NLEs like

As for the future of SCS with Catalyst, I think they are moving quite rapidly. If you look at the amount of major new featured added to the last release, I'd say they're on a very quick path to making it usable for a lot of Vegas Pro editors.

There never was in the past... why would they start now?

At least they are pushing Catalyst and not Adobe anymore. ;-)

The thrust for marketing and awareness for Cloud collaboration and the development of a software such as CAT are part and parcel of the same direction.

I might add a direction that VegasPro was never in, so it is no wonder that two divisions of the Sony corporation may now be seeking joint efforts - i.e., Cloud and CAT.
