Grand Theft Auto V to Add Rockstar Editor for PS4, Xbox One (Updated)
After learning that the Rockstar Editor is heading to PS4 and Xbox One, we heard of some new features coming to Los Santos' official video program.
Sometime next month, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online will have access to the Rockstar Editor, letting you record, edit and share footage that you film in Los Santos and Blaine County. Now, Rockstar announced some new features coming to the program that will be launching on all versions of the Editor, including consoles.
Rockstar will be adding the following new features to the Rockstar Editor:
Ambient Audio and Sound Effects Library: Add ambient and atmospheric sound design with a library of audio tracks to help bring your scenes to life or add sound effects from a collection of Foley and other sfx.
Snapmatic Integration: Now you can export any still frame at a marker point straight to Snapmatic, giving you ultimate freedom when searching for that perfect camera angle.
Director Mode Updates: An enlarged minimap with location blips to highlight preset locations, the power to freeze chosen time of day settings and the ability to spawn air and water vehicles.
Copy and Paste Marker Properties: Easily copy and paste your audio settings from any marker to another marker in the clip – adding invaluable efficiency to your go-to editing techniques.
New Fonts: You'll now have more style options than ever for your titles and credits -- we're tripling the library of available fonts with new styles.
Current-gen console gamers will soon be able to record, edit and share videos created from Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online using the Rockstar Editor.
Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto V's Rockstar Editor is no longer going to be exclusive to the PC version of the game. GTA V and GTA Online's video recording, editing and sharing program will soon launch for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Unfortunately, there are no plans for the video service to be making the jump to the last-gen versions of the game (sorry PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users).
After declaring the winners of its latest Rockstar Editor contest, the studio's representatives had the following to say about the program coming to PS4 and Xbox One:
The upcoming launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One as the next update to Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online means the next Rockstar Editor Contest will be the first one with entries across all three platforms - so the creative competition will be fiercer than ever. Stay tuned for info about that contest and forthcoming update.
Rockstar has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V's Rockstar Editor is coming to current-gen consoles.
Unfortunately, there's no release date yet for this upcoming feature. We've still got our fingers crossed for downloadable mods coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions one day in the future.
