OTTAWA, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Introducing VideoStudio® Ultimate 2018, the latest version of Corel’s video editing software that makes it easy to transform videos and photos into stunning movies. Offering an updated, simplified, and streamlined workflow and new, sophisticated creative features, VideoStudio Ultimate 2018 once again sets the standard for power and ease of use in consumer video. Now, it’s never been faster to jump in and create dynamic movies. Explore a new movie-making style by integrating multiple video streams, simultaneously; remove distortion from footage captured with wide-angle or action cameras; and draw your audience’s attention and set a cinematic tone with customizable 3D motion titles.
“Customers and reviewers have long praised VideoStudio as the easiest-to-use consumer video editor available. And with 2018, we’re ensuring you’ll never have to choose between power and creativity or fun and simplicity,” said Michel Yavercovski, Senior Director of Product Management for Corel video products. “VideoStudio 2018 is still the familiar environment our users love, boosted by smart and intuitive changes that make it even faster to transform memories and impromptu footage into impressive videos.”
