And here's an early photo of these new Catalyst post production tools:
While we were speculating that the new NLE would be specifically designed to handle the native media from Sony's cameras, it seems that it's going to be a much more open and versatile system. Here are the codecs and formats that Catalyst Edit will support:

When we stopped by to talk to Les Zellan from ZGC and Cooke, he explained how the company was aiming to bring back the "funkiness" of anamorphic by designing their new lens with the anamorphic squeeze in front of the iris -- something he says some manufacturers don't do with their new rear anamorphic lenses.
