Corel Video Studio x7 VS Avid Media Composer!


Corel Video Studio x7


Avid Media Composer 

            As an editor, one of the most popular issues one comes into contact with, is choosing the sort of software to use for editing. The market is saturated with hundreds of video editing programs, from elite software such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer, to more basic and casual software like Windows Movie Maker and Virtual Dub. But what the market seems to be missing, is a good, fast, cheap editing platform that can act as a middle ground between the complex and the casual. This is where Corel Video Studio comes in.

In the following paragraphs we will see how Corel Video Studio stands out from the other editing platforms, with focus on how it differs from what Avid Media Composer has to offer. 

In the film industry, Avid seems to be the most popular choice for editors working for big broadcasting companies and production houses. The reason for this is because Avid is known for offering the widest range of really complex and detailed options in editing: from its capacity of being able to handle high volumes of disparate file-based media, numerous intricate ways to cut, to the ability to edit straight to a cloud server. But all of this comes with a quite a few downsides:

  1. The interface is not very user friendly making really hard for someone who is new to it to find their way around it. The learning curve is much slower than any other editing platform because most of its layout is different from what editors are used to in software like Premiere Pro and Final Cut.
  2. Special Effects are not a strong point in Avid, most of them being just basic premade FX. It does give the editor the choice of modifying or making their own special effects, but because of its perplexing layout, the time it takes to build and effect is too big in comparison to other software.

Corel Video Studio has a different concept when it comes to editing platforms, making it a much faster and easier process. The way it does this is through a series of alternative approaches to what Avid does:

  1. The interface is very user friendly, making it very easy for any editor to quickly get accustomed to it. Making use of the “drag and drop” technique that most software is based on at the present. The learning curve is very fast, taking someone around a week to get to a comfortable level of knowledge on how the software works.
  2. The best feature in Corel is its massive table of Special Effects, Filters and Transitions. They come in a premade, ready to use state, giving the editor the option to just drag them onto their clips to apply them. This drastically reduces the time it takes to normally build or modify a Special Effect on other editing platforms.

These approaches that Corel Video Studio takes on the editing process, make it a much faster and easier part of film making. This software is the perfect tool for independent film makers or companies working with a tight time schedule. Written by: George Sonei

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Kudos!

      Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
      WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

      I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
      Any help would be enormously appreciated!

      Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
      site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability
      and appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this.
      Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
      Outstanding Blog!

      Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
      seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
      You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
