Top customer reviews
The layout and presentation is more or less the same, though I would consider, in terms of the layout, that VideoStudio is superior to the PowerDirector range from CyberLink. Anyone who has used several video editing packages before will recognize all the usual tools and options available in VideoStudio X6, from contrast and color boosts to noise reduction, but where Corel really exceeds CyberLink is in the amount of special effects options available. Corel seems to be geared more toward 'film-making' in this regard while CyberLink seems to aim much lower toward 'video editing'. You get so many more filters, transitions, and options with VideoStudio Pro X6 it's a no-brainer to choose this above the others.
Amateur filmmakers will find it very easy to use, with a mellow learning curve. The software is very stable with virtually no shortcomings. If you're making short movies then VideoStudio Pro X6 will not disappoint.
I run a web and design based company and have over 30 years experience in photography, software design and small business online presence. Over the last 5 years we have used video more and more for product demos, within websites and for small online adverts. We own just about every piece of photography and video software out there so can make a balanced observation on this latest version from Corel. At work I use high end equipment and software which is out of the reach of most people but one thing I have learned about video editing is that it is very time consuming.
What is it ?
This is an affordable comprehensive video editing suite from Corel. It is an upgrade from Corel X5. This software is designed for amateurs who want to go that bit further with video editing than then software supplied with cameras or within Windows etc. The basic editor in Windows is a good place to start but it is very limited but will give you a start in video editing.
In the box
You get the software disk and a slip of paper detailing how to register and download the manual for the software. Registering also gives you access to various Corel forums and 'how to' videos on the Corel site.
Loading and set up
My machine is an Intel i5 based machine with 256 Gb SDD, 2TB Hard drive and 16 Gb of 1600 Mhz RAM. Loading is simple, just put the disk in the drive and it will auto load providing auto run is enabled on the DVD drive. If it is not navigate to the DVD drive and click on the application called Autorun.exe. On my machine loading took around 5 minutes.
The program opens with the familiar grey background that appears on other Corel software these days. The program uses a workflow system with different windows open depending what you are doing.
The first workflow window is called 'CAPTURE' and allows data to be imported direct from camera or from various file types. I no problems importing video from a variety or sources including files, Nikon D800 video clips and AVCHD clips from my JVC camcorder. This module allows screen resolution to be set and various capture tools are included. You can save imported video to a disk file or burn it to DVD using this module. The import module is as comprehensive as any other package around the same place. For most users everything you ever need to import and manage files is here, only pro users might want more.
The second window is the EDIT window., Here you can apply all manner of edits and effects. Corel has included enough to keep most users happy here. A new feature over X5 is the motion track and motion paths functions which automatic motion tracking of an object. This is very easy to use and the results are great. It works by allowing the user to draw a track between two moving g objects and link them. Once linked titles, comments and graphics can be added to the track. Corel have also included a motion track library where common tracks can be saved and reused. If you can make use of this feature it's great .
Other new additions to X6 include better support for DSLR video input and manipulation. I was surprised when this software downloaded and displayed the broadcast quality footage from my Nikon D800 SLR.
All the functions you need are here for traditional editing including brightness and contrast, the ability to add titles and subtitles along with transitions and merge tracks facility. A simple drawing package is included so that you can add simple annotation, arrows and animations within the video clips. The function here are all most people will need and are relatively easy to use if you have a little experience of this sort of software
There are plenty of visual effects you can apply to footage. Lots are just filters but can be useful for transitions or special effects. The slow motion function seems greatly improved from X5 as it produces a nice smooth slow-motion effect now rather than the jerky ones it used to in previous versions.
Corel has included so many new items in this release that it is now a pretty mature and easy to use editing software. For a beginner it's quite easy to follow although you will need to invest some time learning it. For the intermediate user like me there is plenty here to keep me happy and stretch my technique. Video editing is a slow and dedicated process but Corel have done a good job at balancing this software so that there is something for all users.
The final window is the SHARE window. This allows you to manage where the finished video clip goes. The output is comprehensive and there is a send to the web function where the video is optimised for web viewing.
I have given this software a good workout over the last few weeks and used it many times and it has never crashed on me. I read other reports of this software giving problems with stability but I have not experienced this despite using all of the functions to extreme.
A good upgrade from X5. Plenty of new items and the older ones have been improved and a few bugs sorted out. I had no problem with stability as reported by others mostly using the Ultra edition, I suspect some bad disks here rather than the main software being the problem. All in all a good program but I would like to see a 'getting started' booklet included rather than the download option. I personally have a basic reference alongside will help beginners much more. The competition offer similar function for the money. The completion is from Adobe Premier, Serif X6 Movie Editor and Sony's Vegas range. They all have their strengths and weaknesses but this new outing from Corel will be my editor of choice for the time being for home use.
Is it any good? Yes, once you get used to the interface.
Lots of features.
Stop Motion capture (see caveat below).
4K ultraHD support.
HTML 5 creation.
Subtitle editor detects start of speech.
Slightly quirky user interface, with a bit of a learning curve.
Stop motion capture only works with canon cameras via USB.
Slow to render the final video.
Only 21 Video tracks and 4 audio tracks possible.
Protexis DRM runs all the time on your PC.
This package was pretty easy to install if a little time consuming because of the sheer amount provided! Which isn't a bad thing by any means. The software is plit into 3 tabbed areas, Capture, Edit and Share, which are pretty self explanatory. Capture allows you get your video, images or audio into the package and supports lots of input formats. It is also where you will find the Stop Motion capture option, however this is limited to certain models of Canon DSLR cameras only so won't work with a webcam. Edit is where the bulk of the work is done, from arranging clips, adding titles, effects, etc, and motion tracking. You get a wide selection of transitions, video effects, etc. The tools for trimming and rearranging clips are powerful and fairly easy to use. Finally, Share is where you are able to save to disc, be it HDD or DVD, and upload to the Net (YouTube). Again there are lots of formats to choose from including 4K UltraHD video and 3D video. The user interface and methodology is a little quirky compared to most other simiar packages and some options/features can be hard to find the first time.
Overall the package is pretty fast at editing and stable (it never crashed once for me) however it takes longer than most other programs to render the final video to disc etc.
One annoyance is it uses a form of always running DRM called Protexis. This does use up system resources and can't be disabled.
Overall it is a good powerful package, and it is only let down by it's slow render time and DRM.
