In addition, Video Pro X is the first and only semi-professional video editing software on the market offering HEVC encoding.

High-grade effect design

The new Video Pro X delivers an advanced exposure function. Detailed color and tonal value correction enables you to precisely edit luminance and individual RGB channels with Bézier curves. Tonal values and contrasts can be modified with non-linear editing so that recordings with flat or log profiles can be manually brough to have the final look you wish.

Additionally, the new shot match ensures a consistent appearance of a video from start to finish. The colors and tonal values of two separate videos can automatically be matched to each other. These can also be refined manually by using the pipette tool to pick out reference points.

For those who want to give their video that special cinematic look, there is the new NewBlue Looks plug-in package. With 5 professional filter effects, you can create complete movies ready for the big screen in no time at all:

  • Film Color: Modify color and light to give your film a classic cinema look.
  • Color Fixer Pro: Adjust the color balance, saturation and brightness of images quickly and easily.
  • Gradient Tint: Intensify image colors using a wide range of filters. Spotlight: Set an area of an image under a spotlight.
  • Glow Pro: Create a warm light by adding highlights to the original image.

Thanks to the modern title presets, you can easily add text in the form of opening and closing credits, separate chapters and subtitles to your slideshows. The more than 250 new title templates have been completely redesigned and feature a modern look and structure.

All-inclusive support

Video Pro X markedly simplifies and accelerates the entire workflow. The software supports the new HEVC/H.265 codec, which optimally decodes, edits and exports material from the latest 4K cameras. Hardware acceleration ensures that decoding is done by the graphics card, which reduces load on the processor and greatly improves performance when editing of 4K/UHD footage.

Lots of changes have also taken place in regard to compatibility. In addition to native ProRes support, OpenFX plug-ins are also supported for the first time. Plug-ins based on the OpenFX standard can now be used simply as a video effect directly from the media pool. The new interface allows users to embed an impressive range of new plug-ins into Video Pro X.

Unlimited video editing

The new version offers a range of innovative functions and useful tools for editing, too. Video Pro X provides a wide range of options for editing footage from the latest 360 degree cameras. Certain clips may be selected from 360 degree material, extracted and finally integrated into the video.

The new snap markers are a clear improvement for marking important points in video objects. They make trimming, moving and synchronizing objects even easier. These snap markers are especially helpful for beat-based editing and ensure optimal synchronization of audio material and video recordings.
