The Most Complete HD Solution
Corel VideoStudio Pro X2 is the most complete HD solution available today. Whether the source is tape, disc, camcorder, or memory card, users can capture and edit video in all the leading HD formats, including HDV, AVCHD, Blu-ray Disc, and TOD.
Fast, Smooth Video Capture and Editing
With an updated user interface, the ability to import from multiple camcorders and storage devices, and the unique Smart Proxy editing feature, VideoStudio helps users edit video quickly and smoothly.
Enhanced! Smart Proxy editing:
With Smart Proxy editing, users can edit HD content as easily as they edit SD (standard definition)--even on midrange PCs. By using lower-resolution files for editing and previewing an HD project, VideoStudio Pro X2 requires fewer system resources, which results in faster, smoother editing of HD video. The final output retains the full resolution of the original HD content.
New! BDMV import:
Users can now import BDMV files directly from Blu-ray camcorders, making it easier to transfer files and get started with video-editing projects.
VideoStudio lets users import AVCHD files directly from AVCHD hard drives, memory card camcorders, or any storage medium.
Though easy-to-use, VideoStudio Pro X2 is a powerful video-editing application. The unrivaled MPEG Optimizer, the MainConcept H.264 codec, and support for both dual-core and quad-core CPUs mean users spend less time waiting to view their discs and DVDs.
H.264 High Definition (HD) encoding:
VideoStudio Pro X2 uses the new MainConcept H.264 codec, which provides rapid encoding with superior quality. Both 1440 x 1080 and 1920 x 1080 output frame sizes are supported.
TOD format support:
Users can import and edit video from the latest JVC HD-7 camcorders without having to convert formats. VideoStudio fully supports all frame sizes offered by these camcorders, including Full HD 1920 x 1080i. Users can expect efficient performance with the MPEG Optimizer and the SmartRender feature, both of which support TOD video.
Choice of Output
VideoStudio Pro X2 lets users create Blu-ray Discs, burn HD video on standard DVDs in AVCHD format, create DVDs with stylish, professional-looking menus, and output video projects to mobile devices or online sharing Web sites--such as YouTube.
Blu-ray Disc output:
Users can author HD video with motion menus and burn the video to Blu-ray Disc (single- or dual-layer). Compliant video is not re-rendered, ensuring shorter encoding times and excellent picture quality. VideoStudio Pro X2 also supports Dolby stereo (two-channel) and 5.1 audio.
With AVCHD support, VideoStudio Pro X2 users can author HD video with menus and burn to a standard DVD. AVCHD discs are playable on a PC (with AVCHD playback software), Blu-ray player, Sony PlayStation3 (PS3), or disc-based AVCHD camcorder.
Create WMV-HD and MPEG-2 HD files:
Users can create WMV-HD and MPEG-2 HD files for playback on Media Center PCs or other HD playback devices.
Write back to HDV camcorder:
With VideoStudio, users can record finished video projects back to tape. This is convenient for viewing directly from a camcorder or for long-term archiving.
Switch between HD and SD output:
Users can choose to output an HD project in standard definition (SD), and vice versa. On the Timeline, users can seamlessly mix HD and SD formats.
