A viewer and library are at the top while the movie timeline spans the bottom. I then created an angle-switching video easily by tapping the clip previews in the four-pane source panel. This would be compatible with both 32 bit and 64 bit windows. This opens a new view in the timeline with a yellow line for adjusting transparency. Ignore the warnings as long as you are 22. Time your splits and shapes to move based on keyframes, and then save your work as a template to use in later projects. Now the masking tool includes text masking and feather settings.
Multipoint Motion Tracking VideoStudio was the first consumer video editor to include motion tracking, which lets you attach an object, text, or effect to something that moves in your video. I like the way icons in the source panel make it easy to show and hide video, photo, and audio content types. The Editing mode's pleasing dark blue-gray interface uses the familiar three-pane view with source and effects and video preview each occupying half the top portion of the window and the timeline taking the whole bottom portion. There have also been improvements or enhancements to a number of other feature already in existence within VideoStudio. Seamless and Morph transitions are a popular technique in online video these days. Corel is much cheaper than many of the competitors out there and offers nearly the same functionality. You double-click a template, and it fills the timeline with placeholder clips, transitions, and a background music sound track.
Multicam Editing Multicam editing lets you switch among camera angles shot at the same time. You can trim videos within a layout that is artistic even cut and clips being split on the scrubber position. By comparison, Premiere Elements and PowerDirector let you add additional cool effects such as reverse and then forward and slo-mo. You can create your own templates, as well. The program can align the clips by audio automatically, or use markers or time codes. In fact, I think Windows has some video editing built in, and you might want to start there. The VideoStudio Trial does not offer all of the functionalities in VideoStudio Pro or VideoStudio Ultimate.
Video Editing Shortcuts Like most video editing software VideoStudio always allowed for the use of Hotkeys to make performing repetitive tasks more efficient. New for 2019 are is the Seamless Transition group. Tools in the preview window give easy access to cropping, scaling, and moving your video content around in the frame. While most other video editing programs display a dialog box at this point to help you choose your project settings, with VideoStudio you're just immediately thrown into adding content and building a timeline without any guidance popping up. I found working with this feature a bit fiddly. You can use keyframes or manipulate the effect on the fly as your video plays which creates keyframes , by dragging a selection box in the source video window.
VideoStudio is set up to allow you to do just that. You can also add the transitions into your videos or the images. VideoStudio has been around for quite some time now and is a well matured, stable program which has benefited from active development since its inception. Masking is similar to using the Chroma key effect, and indeed, after creating a mask, you can use it as a Chroma key without the green screen to overlay an object on your movie. Unlimited creativity Express yourself with 2,000+ customizable filters and effects, including premium effects from industry leaders. Now you can choose where to store your project folder or zip file by clicking the browse button and selecting a location. Multiple screen support lets you see your video full-screen on one and all your editing tools on the other, for example.
Output and Authoring VideoStudio has some support for H. Several new icons have been added to the shortcuts menu, representing new features for the 2018 version. New for 2019 are the popular tiny planet and its converse rabbit hole effects. Play with fun features for a unique look. Registration required for product use. Customize effects to get the exact look you want.
This is helpful if you have created a slideshow or video on your home computer and want to work on it on your laptop at the office or send it to a friend who also has VideoStudio installed on their computer. VideoStudio makes it easy to dive in and start creating videos. You can get to the latter by clicking the button with the magic wand icon in Edit mode, right below the Media button. Explore 2,000+ filters, titles, effects and new seamless transitions. Uniquely creative Choose from 1,500+ filters and effects, enjoy multi-camera video editing, play with speed and more! Layer effects with Track Transparency, slow down, speed up or even reverse clips with Time Remapping, and add a unique perspective with multi-camera editing and support for 360° video. I prefer when an app gives you an estimated time to completion, as PowerDirector does, rather than just a percent completed. As in any high-end video editor, you can set any effects on and off with key frames, and Corel provides a separate window with side-by-side original and preview views for working with these.
Pick a template and drag and drop media to populate each window. This is simply template-based movie creation, with templates for your movie's beginning, middle, and end. Here are the more high-profile enhancements in the latest version. If you have a very large project, you can Split a Smart Package project into several zip files. The anti-shake worked well in my testing, even on 4K footage, though it doesn't show you a progress bar the way Premiere Elements does—handy for a task that can take a while.
And with all of the things that it can do comes complexity that requires some effort to learn. It pops up its own dedicated window, in which you can adjust position, character spacing, bevel, light source, color, opacity, and more. If you drag a clip to overlap its neighbor, the default transition is inserted. Several slider controls, accompanied by Ease-in and gridline controls, give you the framework to perfect how you emphasize your filmed subjects. The app's timeline is also improved, letting you adjust the height of each track or mute the entire track in a single click.
