Corel have announced their latest version of photo editing program VideoStudio Pro. Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 is available to download now from the Corel website and available through retailers in February.
Corel have announced a dramatically enhanced version of its powerful consumer video editing software, Corel VideoStudio Pro X3. Offering great value at £79, Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 combines video editing, media authoring, real-time effects and DVD and Blu-ray burning, enabling video enthusiasts to create professional-looking productions in a simplified and streamlined environment that offers maximum performance.
Faster Rendering Speeds The Creative Process
With industry-leading speed and lowest-in-category rendering times, Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 now performs many common tasks more than twice as fast as the previous version with optimization for new, high-powered chipsets including the Intel Core i7. The software also offers multi-core and GPU parallel processing with support for new technology including NVIDIA CUDA to offer impressive performance and an improved end-to-end production workflow.
“Typically, speed and workflow performance are big challenges for today’s consumer video editors, so that’s where Corel focussed our efforts for X3. Anyone who edits video knows what it feels like when the creative process stalls because you’re faced with complicated tools, slow response times or stuttering playback. We thought it was time to deliver a new experience for video editing, so we’ve built Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 with a streamlined user interface, enhanced creative tools that deliver real-time effects, and a simplified workflow,
” said Petter Nordwall, director of product management for Corel.
“Today, video is everywhere. The NVIDIA CUDA architecture is a critical technology in helping vendors like Corel unlock video for the masses,
” said Michael Steele, General Manager of Visual Consumer Solutions at NVIDIA, “The dramatic speed increases in Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 show how CUDA helps developers give their users record-setting performance, even during the most processor-intensive activities like video editing.
