Corel VideoStudio X8 adds Freeze Frame effect, NewBlue pack

Corel VideoStudio X8

Corel Corporation has unveiled VideoStudio Pro X8 ($79.99) and VideoStudio Ultimate X8 ($99.99), the latest versions of its versatile consumer video editor.

Both editions add a new Freeze Frame effect (just select a frame and set the duration), while the bundled NewBlue Video Essentials II brings 10 plugins, including Chroma Key, Lens Correction, Picture-in-Picture and Vignette.

A smart new Audio Ducking feature detects music or narration, then automatically drops the volume of video background noise to make sure they don’t clash.

New overlay and masking options give you more creative freedom in choosing how video objects blend with the background.

Enhancements include more accurate motion tracking; screen capture which can now record system and microphone sound; MKV import; MOV H.264 export, and smarter project and media file management tools.

XAVC S support means the program can handle the latest cameras, with resolutions up to 4K 3840 x 2160.

The Ultimate X8 version adds a special effects pack with 10 further applications, which now includes proDAD Adorage and NewBlue FX Essentials IV.

A 30-day trial build of VideoStudio Pro X8 is available now.
