I was really excited for SHAREfactory on the PlayStation 4, until I realised just how unwieldy it is to try and edit a video on a console. Like Minesweeper and Excel, some things are just better with a mouse. Still, SHAREfactory is pretty popular, and people are using it to whip up some pretty neat videos. With a new update coming tomorrow, you’ll be able to slap on a The Last of Us aesthetic, giving your videos that post-apocalyptic look.
- The Last of Us theme: Just in time for the launch of The Last of Us Remastered on PS4, the new patch will add custom themes from the critically-acclaimed action-adventure game, so you can spice up your captured gameplay moments with SHAREfactory. The new TLOUR theme includes 39 new stickers, six new transitions, two new background images plus new intro, outro and title clips.
- Import screenshots into projects: You’ll be able to import screenshots from your capture gallery to the SHAREfactory videos you create. This is a feature that many of you have requested, and we are really excited to bring this to SHAREfactory to make it easier for you to create your memorable moments. Keep those requests coming!
- Pro Tip: You can also include photos captured using Photo Mode, which is available for inFAMOUS Second Son and will also be released for The Last of Us Remastered, on Wednesday. Photo Mode is a great way to enhance your gameplay screenshots and add your artistic talents to make the photos much more mesmerizing.
- Additional updates: With this patch, you’ll also notice some newly added filter effects and stickers, as well as UI improvements. We are always trying to give you the players more fun tools to make your video projects that much better!
Have you played around with SHAREfactory at all? Want to share some of your creations here? Please do! I’d love to see what people have managed to do with a rudimentary video editor.
