Corel VideoStudio X7 to X10, 2019 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/9804/corel-videostudio-x7-to-x10-2019 Fri, 07 Mar 2014 02:58:49 +0000 Vitaliy_Kiselev 9804@/talks/discussions


Today Corel announced the availability of VideoStudio® Pro X7 and VideoStudio® Ultimate X7. Thanks to performance gains achieved through the addition of 64-bit architecture, the updated creative library and the new touch-friendly instant movie creator, FastFlick™, X7 upholds VideoStudio’s promise to provide the fastest and easiest way to create a broad range of professional quality videos, regardless of editing proficiency.

“VideoStudio has built a reputation for innovation by bringing users of all skill levels cutting-edge tools like 4K support, motion tracking, HTML5 authoring and a wide variety of creative editing tools in one affordable package,” said Greg Wood, Senior Product Manager, Digital Media. “But first and foremost, we strive to provide a program that is fast and easy and that addresses the growing enthusiasm for video in every walk of life, from personal, to sports, to school, to business, and the best way to ensure this is to go straight to the source” added Wood. “VideoStudio X7 was developed based on our extensive customer research. The result – a uniquely powerful, intuitive, fun and relevant editor.”

The enhancements and additions seen in VideoStudio X7 originate from an in-depth study. Corel researchers drew from a wide base of VideoStudio users, learning that performance, speed and even more easy-editing tools were the enhancements users most wanted to see in X7. As a result, VideoStudio introduces the following new features:

New 64-Bit Architecture Brings Dramatic Performance Gains

The new powerful 64-bit architecture removes memory limitations, resulting in dramatic performance gains in a wide variety of scenarios. For example, benchmark testing indicates, rendering HD multitrack projects can be up to 200% faster and rendering 4K projects can be up to 800% faster.

New FastFlick Makes Creating and Sharing Videos a Snap

Creating stylish movies and slideshows is as easy as 1-2-3 with the new FastFlick instant movie maker. Users can launch the touch-friendly app independently of VideoStudio to quickly create their project of choice by simply selecting a template, adding their media, and sharing. Users can upload their videos directly to Facebook, YouTube, Flickr or Vimeo, or they can save them for further editing in VideoStudio.

Updated Content Library Helps Users Explore New Creative Possibilities

VideoStudio X7 includes fresh new templates, frames, and objects as well as two new types of media, backgrounds and color patterns, to give videos a fresh and polished look.

And for special effects enthusiasts, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 includes a powerful, updated-to-64-bit collection of advanced special effects with plug-ins from proDAD, Boris Graffiti and NewBlue, providing over $500 in additional value. With 64-bit power, effects run faster than ever before.

New and Enhanced Tools Streamline the Editing and Sharing Process

User experience was a top priority for VideoStudio X7 development, resulting in more efficient ways to make and share video projects. Key usability enhancements include:

  • Enhanced! Smarter and faster 4K: The Smart Render option now works with UltraHD files resulting in rendering speeds are up to 200% faster than with X6. Users with the latest Intel chips can expect to see performance gains of 170-500% when working with 4K.
  • Enhanced! One-step online sharing: VideoStudio X7 lets users share their videos online in one simple step, no need to leave the program. Users simply select a social media property, choose the settings and post.
  • New! Favorite filters list: Like transitions, filters can now be added to a My Favorites list, saving users’ time when applying specific corrective filters or special effect filters.
  • Enhanced! Batch conversion custom profiles: Custom profiles in Batch Convert allows users to render multiple projects or files at the same time, exactly the way they want.
  • New! Intuitive profile management and customization: Custom profiles are the ideal tool to streamline workflows while still achieving great results. VideoStudio X7 makes it easy for users to create and save custom profiles to match the video properties for each of their cameras. This ensures the best results possible when rendering.
  • Enhanced! Transitions for overlay tracks: By popular request, VideoStudio X7 includes a new transitions category that makes it easier for users to find transitions that work best with their overlay tracks.

Pricing and Availability

VideoStudio Pro X7 and VideoStudio Ultimate X7 are available now in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Chinese Traditional and Japanese. Suggested retail pricing of VideoStudio Pro X7 is $79.99 (USD/CAN/AUD) / €69.99/ £59.99, VideoStudio Ultimate X7 is $99.99 (USD/CAN/AUD)/ € 89.99/ £79.99. Upgrade pricing is available.

Difference between Magix Vegas Pro and Video Pro http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21200/difference-between-magix-vegas-pro-and-video-pro Wed, 26 Dec 2018 08:02:52 +0000 RoadsidePicnic 21200@/talks/discussions Recently got involved in deploying a very small institutional communication team. The hardware available to video editing is mostly a couple of low profile sandy bridge i7 and common RAM witch would be added 1050ti. Target source is GH5 (not defined).

Searching for some editors with FX suite that reported to run OK on these specs, decided to contact Magix about their Vegas Pro and Video Pro software.

The reply came:

  • Video Pro is a semi-professional software to advanced videographers
  • Vegas Pro is a professional software to production companies

So, ok it does give the idea of how the company place the two, but would the people here on the forum know about the effective difference of the software? What are the main things that set them apart in terms of function and integration?

Please be very careful with such benchmarks as they are made by top custom systems sellers, so they adjust them accordingly to put as much memory usage and stress as possible. In your reality it can be that it is all simple money waste.

I am a complete novice, so please bear over with me if my video vocabulary is a bit limited.
I consider myself a still photographer and thats why I purchased the GF1 in the first place. For some years now, I have enjoyed using a video capable P&S camera for small (poor quality) video sequences and put them together in Windows Movie Maker but it doesn't really work with the GF1 video files. I enjoy the very high quality I achieve with the hack and would like to preserve it when editing the video

So what is an inexpensive, easy to use application which can run on a low end low spec laptop (1.5 years old 3mb RAM 2.1GHz MS Vista with some insignificant spec'ed on board graphics chip)?
These are my requirements:

* Price below USD 100
* Must be able to run on a low spec labtop (I don't intend to upgrade for this purpose and I am willing to be patient when working)
* I use LPowel's reliable patch and I am shooting MJPEG only
* User friendly: I dont want to learn more than absolutely neccessary
* I usually shoot small sequences of around 20-60 seconds and need to trim them and combine the clips into small videos of max 5 min.
* I need fade transitions between clips
* I need some simple sound control as I don't pay much attention to sound when I record video (for example I need to be able to use some ambient sound from one clip to replace the sound of another).
* Some text functionality (placing some explanatory text during the video).

With possible exception of intelligent use of limitied computing resources I would expect my requirements is covered by most products, so what would be your recommendation for a user friendly application that doesn't require to much PC power?

Thanks in advance

Davinci Resolve - add one frame at end of each clip? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20213/davinci-resolve-add-one-frame-at-end-of-each-clip Thu, 09 Aug 2018 04:00:24 +0000 oscillian 20213@/talks/discussions Bit of a noob thing here: I imported 50p footage to a 24p timeline and finished the project. Resolve can't change the timeline after the first clip is conformed, so... I selected all the footage, deleted everything, changed the timeline to 25p and CTRL+Z:ed to bring back the footage.

All good, but... all clips are one frame short, so the resulting movie is too short. How can I add one frame more at the end of each clip?

Any ideas are truly welcome :-)

Encoders in NLEs and GPU support http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16941/encoders-in-nles-and-gpu-support Mon, 15 May 2017 22:12:34 +0000 Vitaliy_Kiselev 16941@/talks/discussions If you look at NLE export and encoders you will see one interesting thing. They live in the past.

Most of them offer average and below average encoders that works slow and at best use some Intel QuickSync abilities.

In real life you have two options:

  • Compact, best possible quality for client distribution - need usage of CPU based x264 and x265 encoders.
  • Youtube, Facebook and such uploads - here you need only fixed block encoding, best is fastest even if it will be larger (as another GPU will reencode it anyway)

Most fun thing is that only few NLEs has any support of very powerful decoding/encoding blocks of AMD/Nvidia GPUs.

Hardware support by NLEs, export H.264 encoding only

As of September 2017

  • Premiere Pro CC 2017 - NVENC (via plugin), QuickSync
  • MAGIX Video Pro X8 and X9 - QuickSync
  • MAGIX Magix Movie Edit Pro 2017 - QuickSync

Lightworks topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4804/lightworks-topic Wed, 03 Oct 2012 18:49:02 +0000 goanna 4804@/talks/discussions

Our solution was to avoid rewriting the Windows-specific code at all (it was, after all, tried, tested and optimized). Instead, we decided to move it to a new operating-system dependent layer which we engineered to have an OS independent interface.

Once this was complete, we were then able to begin work on a Linux implementation of that same layer. In essence, the Lightworks code is now split in two - the OS-independent code (eg. editing, play-engine, etc) which uses the OS-dependent code (eg. file access, threading, etc).

The OS independent code accounts for about 97% of the total codebase. The bulk of the work in porting to Linux was actually in re-engineering the existing code, not in writing the Linux-specific layer.

Linux of course doesn't have [Windows'] Direct3D, so we had to reimplement all the Linux GPU specific code using OpenGL.

This development has been long-awaited. Once again, risk-averse developers are showing us how OSes, once the mainstay of IT revenue, are losing relevance.

What's next - Lightworks for Android? -only a few lines of code away.

Filmvision Pro plug-in http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2524/filmvision-pro-plug-in Thu, 08 Mar 2012 00:57:31 +0000 spk 2524@/talks/discussions There's a YouTube user called ekzotica who has been posting some nice-looking videos from the G2 using this plug-in. I don't yet own a G-series camera, but I'd like to get one (probably G2) and I'd like to be able to achieve similar results. What would this involve?

Thanks for your patience.

PP CC 2018 - How can I mask a graphic for reveal as you can a title? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18909/pp-cc-2018-how-can-i-mask-a-graphic-for-reveal-as-you-can-a-title Wed, 31 Jan 2018 23:09:12 +0000 webarchitect 18909@/talks/discussions Title reveal is easy enough. The masking tool is readily available in the Effects panel under the "Text" item you're working on. Use motion and the title is revealed as it enters into the mask. I want to do exactly the same thing with a png graphic logo, but I cannot figure out how to mask. Google keeps giving me opacity masking options that are not relevant. You're help will be most appreciated!

Software to trim MP4 4k files without recoding http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18127/software-to-trim-mp4-4k-files-without-recoding Sat, 04 Nov 2017 07:26:55 +0000 MarcioK 18127@/talks/discussions Hi, guys. Do you know any software (free is possible) that allows you to trim Panasonic's (GX85, in the case) MP4 4k files without recoding? I have a lot of footage with begin / end without usable material (the shutter button of the GX85 sometimes did not stop the recording), and I wish to trim the excesses before moving it to my permanent storage.

Media Composer First , Free lite editor http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/12780/media-composer-first-free-lite-editor Sun, 12 Apr 2015 11:06:59 +0000 Vitaliy_Kiselev 12780@/talks/discussions

The software is designed to be easy to use yet powerful, and a great introduction to professional video editing software. Media Composer | First has all the tools to create a project from start to finish and to deliver a finished movie in professional formats and to popular web outlets, unlike some freeware products that disable critical features like saving or delivering finished projects. It includes many of the same features as industry-standard Media Composer. It also lets you expand those tools and feature sets through additional purchases including plug-ins, options, and additional applications. You’ll also be able to buy stock footage and music. All Media Composer | First projects are stored in the cloud; some projects and cloud storage space are included,, with the opportunity to purchase more. Additionally, users have the opportunity to upgrade to a full version of Media Composer without losing any options, plugins, projects, add-ons etc. that were purchased with Media Composer | First.

Media Composer | First is still in development, and won’t be available until later in 2015. It will also offer limited functionality.


4k denoise: neatvideo versus in camera noise reduction http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/17833/4k-denoise-neatvideo-versus-in-camera-noise-reduction Sun, 24 Sep 2017 19:01:43 +0000 apefos 17833@/talks/discussions Neatvideo render time in 4k video is very long, very slow render, very time consuming, but quality is better than in camera noise reduction, so...

Two options for 4k denoise:

1 - use noise reduction "-5" in camera and use neatvideo in post production for a better quality denoise.

2 - use noise reduction "0" in camera and avoid neatvideo in post-production for a faster workflow.

Which one to choose?
