Corel (www.corel.com) VideoStudio Pro X7 is one of the hottest and best video editing software thats currently on the market. The software has dominanted the marketplace for several years and is fuelled by years of efforts and a brand name that is synonymous with high quality and efficient video editing software. Despite the well-established architectural design protocols at Corel, a glance at the VideoStudio X7 will give you glimpses of a young innovator at work. VideoStudio has also the market pioneer in introducing stop motion, motion tracking and video creation (HTML5 based) in a consumer video editing software.
Corel plays it safe in this department by sticking to the familiar yet highly effective three-pane view. The upper half of the navigation window is occupied by the effects, content, and video previewing features while the widely popular timeline features occupies the bottom half. Like most commercial video editing softwares, you can resize, move and even separate out these panels into discrete windows. VideoStudio X7 adopts a model interface approach where three primary modes (Edit, Capture, and Share) govern all your actions. Most users love this interface because it doubles up as a guide to the process of editing, adding, and exporting a digital movie. Prominent buttons providing access to this mode were traditionally placed at the top of the screen to enhance visibility. But, X7 adopts a different approach by placing them at the center of the screen. A wide variety of options are entailed within the basic video editing software interface itself, ranging from drag and drop feature from PC to the timeline, clips in source tray opening up in a customized window to start and end markers on the video timeline. The Multi-Trim version of the primary interface exposes the user to a plethora of other options including the option to choose multiple in and out points within a video clip. This option allows you to remove an unwanted portion in the middle of the clip without needing to create multiple clips. It also offers a brand feature that enables the user to detect automatically and trim advertisements in a TV clip transforming it into the best video editing software available in the market.
Corel continues to deliver on its promise of creating powerful video editing software tools that are easy to use and can be utilized by the casual user as well as a professional. The entire interface is well laid to ensure that you do not get lost in the multiple features and control settings that make this tool so powerful. Adding overlays, and other layers on top of images and videos is a very intuitive process. All of the seventy special effects are also readily available through a centralized graphic pane. The timeline section provides an easy method to manage the entire video flow and adds to the ease of use quotient as well.
It is an area where Corel VideoStudio X7 makes the biggest leap over its other video editing software predecessors. By introducing a new interface that allows you to switch quickly between the web, device, disk, computer and 3D output options. Another option is available that lets users save a movie with custom settings or just the regular options. VideoStudio also enables you to hook directly up to Facebook, Vimeo, Flickr or YouTube and directly upload the created video using a smooth interface and neat progress bar. The ability to create custom output profiles is a big plus as well and allows you to zip through to your favorite output formats while taking care of the video and audio bitrates based on your predefined settings.
With the new VideoStudio X7, Corel has once again established its absolute supremacy in the video editing software space.
