Corel VideoStudio (formerly Ulead VideoStudio) is a video editing software package for Microsoft Windows.


Basic editing[edit]

The software allows both storyboard and timeline-oriented editing. Different formats are supported for source clips, and the resulting video can be exported to DVD, AVCHD, HD-DVD and AVI. VideoStudio also supports direct DV and HDV capturing to disk.


VideoStudio provides several categories of video transitions, including:

  • FX contains assorted video effects such as 'Burn' and 'Fade to black'
  • 3D provides assorted 3D transition effects
  • Album a slideshow effect similar to that of a photo album.


Users can overlay a Flash animation, an image, or text on the video. However, the number of overlays allowed is limited. The user must remove a particular color from the overlay video so that the required background or picture can appear in the foreground.

Other features[edit]

VideoStudio can change apparent video playback speed, reverse it, and modify hue and saturation. It provides tools that let the user trim, crop, and split video tracks. The soundtrack can be split from the video track, allowing the audio to play at a different pace than the video. A feature that Corel calls "SmartRender" renders only the edited portions of video, so a user can preview edited footage without VideoStudio creating temporary files. This feature also makes final rendering much faster.

Proxy Video Files[edit]

VideoStudio supports editing of high-definition video. Proxy files are smaller versions of the video source that stand in for the full-resolution source during editing to improve performance.

Plug-ins / Bundles[edit]

VideoStudio supports VFX-type plug-ins from providers like NewBlue.
The proDAD plug-ins Roto-Pen, Script, Vitascene and Mercalli-Stabilizer are bundled with X4, X5 and X6.

Multi-Camera Editor[edit]

From release X9 VideoStudio supports Multi-Camera Editing with up to 4 or 6 cameras depending on the version. This allows the user to sync and align clips, switch angles, cut, delete and add transitions.
