Corel VideoStudio X9

Corel has just released VideoStudio X9, easy video-editing software with impressive power for advanced users.

Especially with the addition of multi-cam support, the new VideoStudio has a stunning depth of editing power even in the base "Pro" ($79) version.

You can start quickly and easily with FastFlick for three-step slideshows and videos and Instant Projects with pre-built templates, and then move up to timeline editing -- There's enough power to keep you satisfied for a long time:

  • Edit in up to 21 video tracks, plus 8 audio
  • Work with Ultra HD 4K video, plus 5.1 Dolby audio
  • Support for overlays, subtitles, stop-motion, variable speed, time-lapse / strobe, screen capture, and more
  • New Multi-cam editing
  • New Multi-Point motion tracking
  • New quick Audio Normalize and Ducking
  • Export to web, mobile, and disc
  • New HEVC (H.265), and XAVC S professional camera formats

The new Multi-Cam implementation is particularly interesting. It's now reasonable for you to enhance even low-key / quick edit videos to add in a second or even third camera (i.e., drop a GoPro in the back of the room), and then go to town with multi-cam:

  • Multi-Camera Editor for up to 6 cameras - and 2 additional soundtracks
  • Automatically align & sync by Audio, Markers, Shooting date/time -- or manually
  • Click to switch camera views, cut, trim, add transitions
  • Also switch between audio sources (i.e., when 2nd cam has pre-roll, post-event)
  • Also add Picture-in-Picture effects

And this is in the base VideoStudio Pro X9 for $79.99. The full VideoStudio Ultimate X9 for $99.99 has only a few tech enhancements -- stepping up the multi-cam from 4 to 6 cameras and adding MXF (XAVC) import -- plus bundles bonus premium effect packs from ProDAD, NewBlue and Boris.
