Corel VideoStudio is a video editing software program that is in its 8th version and is considered by many to be one of the top programs for amateur and professional use. Compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers only, Corel VideoStudio simplifies video production by breaking the process into three simple steps: capture, edit and share.
When it comes to editing functionality, Corel VideoStudio gives you the freedom to choose between timeline and storyboard setups. There are a number of effects and features available to make videos more unique and distinctive. Effects like free framing to and overlays offer many possibilities for adding creative touches to videos, and there are many plugins available that provide new presets for experimentation.
One of the key features of the newest version of Corel VideoStudio is audio ducking, a sound editing technology that can save amateurs and pros time. The feature helps to balance the sound present in videos so that dialogue is more prominent and other sounds fade into the background, doing so automatically. The software can render videos in a number of popular formats, including the most state-of-the-art options, including 4K Ultra HD and 3D.
Corel offers two versions of Corel VideoStudio: Corel VideoStudio Pro and Corel VideoStudio Ultimate. The main difference between the two programs is that Ultimate comes with a special effects pack that provides more motion effects, background effects and animation functionalities. Both software programs are offered as free trials for those who wish to test the features for themselves.
