The software, cineSync, is a program developed by Cospective that allows users to view video in real time, in sync, anywhere in the world, and use drawing tools to point at elements in the frame, sketch new ideas and write text notes.
“I've been using cineSync as a tool for so many years…but it was really this last movie that it was like ‘I can't picture getting the movie done without it’.”

“I've been using cineSync as a tool for so many years,” said Braver. “But it was really this last movie that it was like ‘I can't picture getting the movie done without it’.”
Fault in our Stars had a low budget of $US13m, and looks like a straight romantic film, yet it had 350 shots that required visual effects. These included creating hand-drawn text messages and emails on screen, replacing a real leg with a prosthetic one and taking out a real leg and replacing it with an amputated stump.

Cospective developed the software in 2006 for Adelaide-based visual effects company Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) who were working on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Superman Returns.
Since then cineSync has won an Academy Award for Technical Achievement and is now used everyday by the big studios. Yet Cospective CEO Rory McGregor has always believed cineSync was more than just a platform for big visual effects productions.
“(Fault in our Stars) was using it within a visual effects sphere,” he said. “But it shows that cineSync isn’t just a tool for blockbusters it is a tool that can be used by films large and small and that it is adaptable enough to be used in different situations.”
