Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 Released

Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 boxWell the news is that Corel have just released VideoStudio pro X3 which is the latest version of their flagship video editing program. They are additionally running some special discounts to kick off the launch.

From the inside the good news is that Corel got smart with this one and for the first time in quite a number of releases (probably going back to the days of Ulead) they included the senior members of their user forum in the Beta testing. A smart move on Corel’s part because as one of the best help forums on the internet it was beginning to appear that Corel were about to outstay their welcome.

From what I have seen the beta testers were not only listened to but also a number of long standing gripes were addressed and resolved.

Here is a little list of the things that have been corrected in this new version of VideoStudio Pro X3:

First of all the long awaited AVCHD bug has been fixed. The program now smoothly handles all kinds of AVCHD file manipulation with ease and none of the strange little glitches that VideoStudio Pro X2 displayed for so long.

You can now copy and paste a filter that has been applied from one clip to another along with the attributes assigned to the original.

You can copy and paste assets that are on the timeline to other locations on the timeline. Previously you had to drag the clip into the library so that it appeared there then drag it back down to the timeline where you wanted it.

You may now right-click on a clip and select the option to Replace Clip. You then navigate to the clip or image you want and replace it. You can replace clips with images or the other way round as well.

Whilst Corel didn’t go the whole hog on introducing moving paths as a feature they did at least come to the party with extended New Blue Effects and Filters. The main one of interest will be the Essentials III, PiP effect which acts as a moving path effect allowing you to achieve the same effect.

The existing animations for titles have been extended by allowing you to add video style filters to them. Not exactly full 3D but you can create some pretty neat titles with it.

Anyway that’s a summary of the main points. I’ll take the final release for a full spin later this week but in the meantime given that they have tidied the program up considerably and added some more stuff it is well worth taking a look at.

    I also have purchased a copy of the Corel Video Studio Pro X4 software, and I agree with the post from Victor above. I have used previous versions of the Corel Video Studio including 11.5 Plus, X2, X3 and now X4 but NONE of them allowed that cut and paste feature. I truly do not understand that, because I post Bible scriptures, and I have to type out each verse letter by letter if I am using the Corel Video software. That takes a ton of time! I noticed that the FREE Windows Live Movie Maker program allows users to cut and paste INSTANTLY, so I cannot understand why Corel does not allow this basic feature. I do like their easy to use Video programs but that is one feature that I hope they allow in the near future. Billy W

    I am using the Corel VideoStudio Pro X4 trial version. My obstacle is to create titles and subtitles using a copy and paste method instead of typing into the text box on the screen. For example I have a verse of a song in text file and I want to insert the text into the video timeline without typing the whole thing. How can this be achieved? If you remember the old, old version of Ulead Video Studio, the originator, it allows copy and paste of titles. Unfortunately, this old software cannot support Windows 7 anymore.

      It depends what you are copying from in some cases.
      Often if you copy from anything other than a text editor the code contains other formatting that the software cannot deal with.
      If you have a Word file for example just copy and paste to a text file then into VS.
