Fast and Easy HD Video Editing
With its simple 1-2-3 workspace, Instant Project templates, and advanced multi-core acceleration, VideoStudio Pro X5 helps you get started immediately and finish fast. By employing multithreading, VideoStudio Pro X5 fully harnesses the processing power of multi-core technology, which means that you can do more and wait less— especially on today’s triple and quad-core PCs. And when you’re looking for a little creative inspiration, you can visit our new online trading community, photovideolife.com (English only), where you can connect with other users, get the latest VideoStudio Pro news, and download both free and premium templates and additional content, such as 3D titles and animations.
Advanced Visual Effects and Animation
VideoStudio Pro X5 now offers you greater creative freedom with more multimedia tracks, so you can incorporate up to 20 overlay tracks which can consist of video clips, graphics, or photos, two title or subtitle tracks, and four audio tracks. In addition, new support for multi-layer graphics, means you can drag and drop Corel PaintShop Pro (PSP) graphics into your video productions. VideoStudio Pro X5 automatically detects and distributes each layer of the graphic onto separate overly tracks in the Timeline, which lets you apply effects and animations to the individual layers.
Complete Screencast Production
VideoStudio Pro X5 introduces new screen recording tools that make it easy to create complete screencast productions — and for just a fraction of the price of the leading brand. You can quickly and easily capture the activity on your screen, add voice-over narration, background music, and all the titling, subtitles, animations, transitions, and visual effects that VideoStudio Pro has to offer. Its high-speed rendering, multiformat authoring, and complete editing functionality put VideoStudio Pro X5 a giant step ahead of conventional screen recording software.
Whether you’re a business looking to reduce the costs associated with training, or just a regular Joe trying to teach something technical to a loved one separated by miles, the difference in cost between a leading screen-recording solution and VideoStudio Pro X5 represents massive savings.
Innovative Sharing Options
With VideoStudio Pro X5, you can quickly and easily create interactive online video, burn professional-quality discs complete with menus, titles, and transitions, upload directly to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and Flickr, as well as output your videos for specific mobile devices. New support for HTML5 lets you produce dynamic projects that let viewers interact with your video. You can easily add chapter and cue points, just as you would with a disc-based production. And you can get started right away by using one of the included HTML5 Instant Project templates. Formerly the domain of gearheads and the creative agency, this puts interactive HTML5 video in the reach of anyone using VideoStudio Pro X5.
What’s more, VideoStudio Pro X5 provides an advanced disc authoring solution, which lets you create professional-quality DVD and Blu-ray discs, complete with menus, titles, subtitles, and transitions. Plus, you can add your own custom decorations by replacing default button and icon images with your own graphics. You can even burn from an ISO disc image, which is great for disc replication.

Only downside is the playback. It's not smooth. And the more you edit, add effects, titles, etc, the worse it gets. But I think that's just because it's sort of a "preview". But at least it allows you to see something without rendering first! After you output the entire project, of coarse, it does play perfectly smooth (even 1080 HD video). I think if I just upgrade my system (I've got a dual core AMD compressor now) that might take care of it.
And it does crash sometimes. But I've never used an editing program doesn't. Hitting the Ctrl S keys from time to time has become a habit for me, so that's not much of an issue.
That's where this review got the 4 stars instead of the 5. The "many extras" should have been already included in the software or had a site that will lead you to an auto download instead of downloading them INDIVIDUALLY... Yes, I almost fell asleep through the early morning hours and developed carpal tunnel syndrome downloading these extras. There must be at least 50 of these templates and add-ons!
I have the X2 so I am very familiar with this software. The learning curve may take some time but compared to the Sony Vegas Pro 11.0 which I also have and my son prefers, this is so much more intuitive and friendly. The icons and the working environment makes the tiresome tasks of video creation more palatable and less frustrating.
Since my laptop is nearly 5 years old... it looks like they have improved the speed and workability of some of the functions such as using AVCHD and having multiple titles and mixing videos & photos. I also like the pro tools that come with it... yup, you have to download them too. The Boris Graffiti, Vistascene, etc. that gives you tools to create but... it looks like they've taken these and made them easier in the new X6 version. You really can't avoid the pop-up ads telling you that there's a newer version, but as you can see... I went from the X2 to the X5 without an upgrade discount and without feeling that I lost out on a lot of features...
I also like the extra video templates and transitions that allow you to use a start, middle and an end to your videos. So, with some learning time and knowing what the icons have when you click on them, this software can make it literally as easy as 1-2-3 (Capture, Edit, Share) in adding zest & zeal to your videos! So, study the intuitive icons carefully to help you look for features and tools instead of tedious drop-down menus with the Sony Vegas Pro...
If there's a place where I can attach a print screen gif file showing you the working environment, I will put one there...
Buy it of you like making your videos in a friendly and intuitive environment!
4/13/14 update: I've done many videos with this now and I've found out that it doesn't take AVI files and does a very bad job "synching" audio with video in MP4 mode. This software locks up when loading AVI files... These are crucial & fatal erros in this software since I prefer my HD vidz in MP4 HD formats and would like to convert AVI files for some improvement... I was thinking of upgrading but may go back to a less friendly environs with Sony Vegas Pro. I'll wait for a low price, special offer to get into this software and it's upgrades again! Too bad, I really wanted this to work well...
When I did the install I didn't uninstall my version x2. I received no errors during the verX5 process, and upon opening the program, I was instructed to download an update by Corel to it's Service Pack1. After following all the instructions and installing the Bonus disk which came with the "Ultimate" bundle, I launched the software.
The opening screen of Video Studio defaults to show the "Samples" folder and the media clips provided by Corel, which visually show up.
Hmmm -- no "samples" appeared -- no images, audio or video files??
OK - so I then tried to download (import) my own media into the library, and the error message kept appearing saying that the file format was not recognized. I tried images, audio and video files using standard file conventions -- the same error message appeared. (These were on "known good files".)
So ... maybe the problem had to do with a conflict with my VideoStudio verX2 which I still had installed on my computer.
I uninstalled this older version of Video Studio, and made sure my computer was scrubbed of all shortcuts and files.
Re-booted, cleaned my registry files (using my Norton Utilities), and launched verX5. Same problem -- no "Samples" clips and couldn't import my known-good media files.
Uninstalled, and reinstalled VideoStudio vX5 plus the other programs that were installed associated with this program -- cleaned the registry files -- STILL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM!
Ok -- after spending about 2-3 hours on all the above, as well as poking into some other areas (directX, etc.) -- I decided to contact Corel.
COREL DOES NOT HAVE A CUSTOMER SUPPORT PHONE NUMBER!!!!
I went on Corel's website and started a "Chat" -- I tried to explain via text entry, what the problem was that I was having. The person who I was chatting with just didn't get it. I had rediculious responses to my inputs, but when I was asked what kind of camera I had that I used to take the pictures of the image files I was trying to import into VideoStudio -- I lost it.
I was then told that I would be contacted by Corel via email to address the software problems.
The following day I received an email by Corel's customer support saying they were reviewing my chat file, and I would be contacted within 48 business hours.
4 days later I received an email from Corel reviewing my problems, with a "to do" list of items -- below is the content of their email:
"I have checked on your conversation with one of our chat agents and you mentioned once there that the files you were trying to import through VideoStudio Pro X5 are all from your iTunes library. Please note that when a file comes from the iTunes library, these files are all copyright protected and could not be imported through VideoStudio Pro X5, mainly because of copyright protection issues.
However, if VideoStudio Pro X5 still cannot import any files that are not from your iTunes library, then you may want to try downloading the codec updates from the links provided below:
* Microsoft Direct X DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer --- [...]
* QuickTime Player ---[...]
* Real Player ---[...]
* DivX --- [...]
* Xvid ---[...]
* FFDSHOW ---[...]
You may also want to follow the steps from the attached article to reset the program to its default settings."
You have got to be kidding!!!
Corel -- Get your act together and provide phone support to insure your software can be installed.
I consider myself beyond a "novice" computer user -- though not an expert.
What about someone who is a novice?? Does Corel honestly think their approach is viable???
Thank you Amazon for accepting the return of this software.
Corel -- Shame on you!!
