    simple tools for creating soundtracks.
    To produce a video, you must capture or import footage from a
    camcorder or another video source. You can then trim the captured
    videos, arrange their order, apply transitions, and add overlays,
    animated titles, voice-over narration, and background music. These
    elements are organized on separate tracks in Timeline View and appear
    as chronologically arranged thumbnails in Storyboard View.

    Components of a project as displayed in Timeline View

    Video projects are saved as Corel VideoStudio Pro project files (*.vsp),
    which contain information on the location of the clips, on the Library,
    and on how the movie has been put together. After you finish your
    movie production, you can burn it to a DVD or Blu-ray Disc, or export
    the movie back to your camcorder. You can also output your movie as
    a video file for playback on a computer, or export your movie to mobile
    devices or the Web.

    dialog box is displayed.

    2

    Choose one of the following options to set the correct format for
    3D content:
    • 2D — the default setting if the selected clip is not recognized as
    3D.
    • Side-by-side — delivers 3D content by splitting the horizontal
    resolution of each frame for the left and right eye. Side-by-side
    3D is widely used by cable channels for delivering content for 3D

    ready TV sets because of lower bandwidth usage. Choose
    between the Left-Right and Right-Left formats.
    • Over-Under — delivers 3D content by splitting the vertical
    resolution of each frame for the left and right eye. The higher
    count of horizontal pixels makes this option more suitable for
    displaying panning motion. Choose between the Left-Right and
    Right-Left formats.
    • Multiview Video Coding (MVC) — generates a high-definition
    two-view (stereoscopic) video or a multi-view 3D video.
    • Multi-view image — delivers high-quality stereoscopic images
    such as Multi-Picture Object (MPO) files that are shot using 3D
    cameras.
    3

    Click OK.
    The thumbnail of the media clip in the Library and Timeline now
    has the 3D tag.
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, MVC and MPO clips are automatically
    detected and tagged as 3D during import.
    The Left-Right format for side-by-side 3D is a popular choice for
    delivering content and is used mostly in media clips imported
    or captured from 3D video cameras. The Right-Left option is
    used mostly in media clips acquired from the Web.
    Tagging video and photo clips as 3D is required for editing in
    3D mode.
    To preserve 3D attributes, make sure you only split or trim 3D
    media clips. Applying 2D effects or filters to a 3D clip converts
    the 3D clip to 2D.

    Working with clips
    Videos, photos and audio clips are the foundation of your project and
    manipulating them is the most important skill you can master.

    Adding video clips
    There are several ways of inserting video clips to the Timeline:
    • Select a clip in the Library and drag it to the Video Track or Overlay
    Track. Multiple clips can be selected by pressing [Shift].
    • Right-click a clip in the Library and select Insert To: Video Track or
    Insert To: Overlay Track.
    • Select one or more video files in Windows Explorer and drag them
    to the Video Track or Overlay Track.
    • To insert a clip from a file folder directly to the Video Track or
    Overlay Track, right-click the Timeline, select Insert Video and
    locate the video to use.
    3D media clips are supported in Corel VideoStudio Pro. You can
    tag 3D media clips so that they can be easily identified and
    edited with 3D editing features. For more information, see
    “Tagging Files as 3D” on page 30.

    Aside from video files, you can also add video from DVD or
    DVD-VR formatted discs.

    Adding photos
    Photo clips are added to the Video Track the same way as video clips.
    Before you start adding photos to your project, determine the photo
    size that you want for all your photos. By default, Corel VideoStudio
    Pro adjusts the size to keep the photo’s aspect ratio.
    Corel PaintShop Pro PSPIMAGE files (*.pspimage) are now supported
    in Corel VideoStudio Pro. PSPIMAGE files that are imported into the
    Library have a multiple layer indicator so you can distinguish them from
    other types of media clips.

    To make all inserted photos the same size as the frame size of your
    project
    1

    Click Settings > Preferences > Edit.

    2

    Change the Image resampling option default to Fit to project size.

    To import PSPIMAGE files into the Timeline

    program will automatically add the layers to separate tracks. To
    insert a flattened image, hold down [Shift] and drag the file.

    Color
    Color clips are usually added as backgrounds and are useful for titles.
    Adding of color clips on the Video Track follows the same procedure as
    that of video and image clips. For more information about adding
    color clips, see “Adding Color Clips” on page 97.

    Speed and Time-lapse
    You can modify the playback speed of your videos. Set your video in
    slow motion to emphasize a movement, or set it to play at lightning

    Split by Scene
    Use the Split by Scene feature in the Edit Step to detect different scenes
    in a video file and automatically break it down into several clip files.
    The way Corel VideoStudio Pro detects scenes depends on the type of
    video file. In a captured DV AVI file, scenes can be detected in two
    ways:
    • DV Recording Time Scan detects scenes according to their
    shooting date and time.
    • Frame Content detects content changes, such as motion change,
    camera shifting, brightness change, etc., and splits them into
    separate files.
    In an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 file, scenes can only be detected based on
    content changes (i.e., by Frame Content).
    To use Split by Scene on a DV AVI or MPEG file
    1

    Go to the Edit Step and select a captured DV AVI file or an MPEG
    file on the Timeline.

    You may merge some of the detected scenes into a single clip.
    Simply select all the scenes that you want to join together then
    click Join. The plus sign (+) and a number indicates how many
    scenes are merged into that particular clip. Click Split to undo any
    Join actions that you have done.
    Click OK to split the video.

    Multi-trimming your video
    The Multi-trim Video feature is another method for breaking down a
    clip into multiple segments. While Split by Scene is automatically done
    by the program, Multi-trim Video gives you complete control over the
    clips you wish to extract, making it even easier to include only the
    scenes you want.

    Saving trimmed clips
    Frequently, when you make changes (i.e., after auto-splitting clips
    using Split by Scene, extracting clips using Multi-trim Video, or
    manually trimming clips), you may wish to make a permanent change
    to the clip and save the edited file. Corel VideoStudio Pro gives you a
    margin of safety since it saves the trimmed video to a new file and does
    not alter the original file.

    Ripple Editing
    Ripple Editing allows you to insert or remove clips while automatically
    moving other clips (including empty spaces) accordingly, to make
    room for it on the Timeline. Ripple editing begins after the insertion
    point. Use this mode to maintain the original synchronization of tracks
    when inserting or deleting clips.
    This feature is useful when you want other titles or tracks to play along
    with a particular moment in the video. This also makes editing more
    efficient by keeping all tracks synchronized, using the video track as
    reference.

    Editing with Smart Proxy
    The main purpose of the Smart Proxy feature is to have a more fluid
    editing experience when working with large, high resolution video
    files.
    When you edit and preview your project, proxy files will be used as
    substitutes for their large video source counterparts. This feature works
    especially for handling video footage shot in HD, which can take up a
    lot of your computer’s resources to process. Whereas when you render
    a video file, the original video source files will be used.
    106

    Corel VideoStudio Pro User Guide



  • Page 117

    Proxy files are lower resolution working copies of video files. They are
    reduced in resolution or compression bit rate -- to speed up editing of
    high definition files such as HDV and AVCHD. Proxy files are sourcedependent rather than project-dependent. In other words, proxy files
    can be shared among different projects. Smart Proxy can also be used
    with other video file formats and is not limited to HD files.
    To enable the creation of proxy files
    • Click Settings > Smart Proxy Manager > Enable Smart Proxy.
    Note: The Smart Proxy feature is enabled by default if the
    computer’s hardware can support the feature. However, you can
    force the creation of proxies at any time by right-clicking on a file,
    or multiple files in the Timeline, and choose Create Smart Proxy
    File.
    To set the environment when smart proxy files will be generated
    1

    Select Settings > Smart Proxy Manager > Settings.

    2

    In the Performance tab of the Preferences dialog box, you can
    customize Smart Proxy settings.
    The Smart Proxy File Manager lists the source and proxy files.
    You can use this manager to delete proxy files you no longer
    need.
    The Smart Proxy Queue Manager shows the files for which
    proxies will be generated.

    In the case of HDV and AVCHD files, Smart Proxy is automatically
    activated during capture and use of these files in your project.
    Once Smart Proxy is enabled, proxy files will automatically be created
    and used in your project whenever you insert video files into the
    Timeline.

    Adjusting white balance
    White balance restores the natural color temperature of an image by
    removing unwanted color casts due to conflicting light sources and
    incorrect camera settings.
    For example, an object illuminated with incandescent lights may turn
    out too reddish or yellowish in an image or video clip. To successfully
    achieve a natural look, you need to identify a reference point in your
    image which represents the color white. Corel VideoStudio Pro gives
    you different options in selecting the white point:
    • Auto — Automatically chooses a white point that is well-matched
    with the overall color of your image.
    • Pick Color — Allows you to manually select the white point in the
    image. Use the Eyedropper Tool to pick a reference area that
    should be white or neutral gray.
    • White balance presets — Automatically selects white point by
    matching specific light conditions or scenarios.
    • Temperature — Allows you to specify color temperature of light
    sources in Kelvin (K). Lower values indicate Tungsten, Fluorescent
    and Daylight scenarios while Cloudy, Shade and Overcast fall
    under high color temperature.

    To make overlay clips with transparent backgrounds, you can create a
    32-bit alpha channel AVI video file or an image file with an alpha
    channel. You can use programs such as Corel PaintShop Pro and
    CorelDRAW to create these video and image files.

    Tracking, matching and customizing motion in video
    Corel VideoStudio Pro lets you create tracking paths in video clips and
    track particular elements in your video.
    Motion Tracking eliminates the multiple and repetitive steps of adding
    objects into the Timeline and the use of key frames to induce
    movement. Using trackers, the program lets you track specific points
    or areas to create moving paths. You can use the generated moving
    paths to animate titles and overlays in video clips.
    Furthermore, the motion tracking feature lets you create seamless
    optical illusions that allow for titles to be embedded into the video clips
    and follow camera movement, just like shooting video with titles
    originally in the footage!
    For more information on Motion Tracking, see “Motion Tracking” on
    page 220.

    Tracking motion of video objects
    The Track Motion feature allows you to track the motion of a point or
    area in a video and automatically generate a tracking path in the
    process. This path represents the location of the selected point or area
    within the sequence of video frames. You can fine-tune or modify the
    behavior of a tracking path by manually resetting track points.
    Once you have tracking paths, you can choose to add matched objects
    around the tracker area or blur video elements using the tracker.
    Track Motion works in tandem with the Match Motion feature. Match
    Motion allows you to make your overlays and titles automatically
    follow the tracking path that you create.
    If you prefer to manually animate overlays and titles to match
    your main background video, you can use the Customize
    Motion feature.
    To launch the Track Motion dialog box
    • You can do one of the following:
    • Select a video file on the Video Track and click the Track Motion
    button

    Working with Audio
    Sounds are one of the elements that determine the success of your
    video production. Corel VideoStudio Pro allows you to add music,
    narration, and sound effects to your project.
    The Audio feature in Corel VideoStudio Pro consists of four tracks. You
    can insert narrations on the Voice Track and the background music or
    sound effects on the Music Track.

    Adding audio files
    You can add audio files to your project in any of the following ways:
    • Add audio files to the Library from a local or network drive.
    • Rip audio from CD
    • Record a voice-over clip
    • Use Auto Music
    Note: You can also extract audio from a video file.
    To add an audio file to the Library
    • Click the Import Media Files button
    in your computer.

    to browse for audio files

    Adding voice-over narration
    Documentaries, news and travel features often use narrations to help
    the audience understand what is going on in the video. Corel
    VideoStudio Pro allows you to record your own narration.
    Edit

    157

    In Timeline view, click the
    Record/Capture Option button and
    select Voice-over. The Adjust Volume dialog box appears.
    Note: The program prompts you when there is an existing voiceover clip at the current project cue position. Make sure that a clip
    is not selected by clicking on an empty area in the Timeline.

    3

    Speak into the microphone and check if the meter responds
    accordingly. You can use the Windows audio mixer to adjust the
    level of the microphone.

    4

    Click Start and begin speaking into the microphone.

    5

    Press [Esc] or [Space] to end recording.
    Note: The best way to record narrations is to do the recording in
    10 to 15-second sessions. This makes it easier to remove a badly
    recorded narration and redo it. To remove, just select the clip on
    the Timeline and press [Delete].

    Adding background music
    Corel VideoStudio Pro can record and convert sound tracks from your
    CD into WAV files and then insert them onto the Timeline.
    Corel VideoStudio Pro also supports WMA, AVI, and other popular
    audio file formats which you can directly insert onto the Music Track.

    Importing music from an audio CD
    You can import music tracks from an audio CD. Corel VideoStudio Pro
    copies the CDA audio file then saves it in your hard drive as a WAV file.

    high-quality sound tracks from royalty-free music and use them as
    background music in your project. You can have different tempos or
    musical instrument variations per music.
    Auto Music Maker utilizes the patented SmartSound
    Quicktracks technology in sound track creation and features a
    variety of SmartSound background music.
    With SmartSound, you can set the feel of your movie with the
    background music of your choice. Set Mood allows you to adjust
    parameters to change the mood or feel of a song. You can create
    several moods for a single song.

    Stretching audio duration
    The time stretch feature allows you to stretch an audio clip to match
    video duration without distorting its pitch. Normally, stretching audio
    clips to fit the project results in a distorted sound. The time stretch
    feature will make the audio clip sound like it is just played in a slower
    tempo.
    When you stretch an audio clip by 50-150%, the sound will not
    be distorted however, if stretched below or above that range
    the sound may be distorted.
    To stretch the duration of an audio clip
    1

    Click on an audio clip in the Timeline or Library and open the
    Options Panel.

    2

    In the Music & Voice tab panel, click Speed/Time-lapse to open
    the Speed/Time-lapse dialog box.

    3

    Enter a value in Speed or drag the slider to change the speed of
    the audio clip. A slower speed makes the clip’s duration longer
    while a faster speed makes it shorter.
    Note: You can specify how long the clip will play in Time stretch
    duration. The speed of the clip will automatically adjust to the
    specified duration. This feature will not trim the clip when you
    specify a shorter time.

    You can stretch the time of an audio clip on the
    Timeline by holding [Shift] then dragging the handles
    on the selected clip.

    Creating disc menus
    Disc menus allow viewers to easily navigate through the contents of a
    disc and easily choose the specific parts of the video to watch.
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, you can create disc menus by applying menu
    templates and editing them to suit the requirements of your projects.
    To edit a menu template, choose options in the Edit tab or click menu
    objects in the Preview Window. You can also add new texts,
    decorations and note menus. Customized templates can then be saved
    as new menu templates.
    If you are authoring Blu-ray discs, you can create advanced menus that
    can be used without interrupting playback. This means that viewers
    can navigate the contents of your disc while watching the movie.
    Advanced menu templates are made up of three separate layers for
    background settings, title menus, and chapter menus. You can edit
    menu objects in the currently selected layer.
    The illustration below shows the structure of a disc menu.

    DV camcorder. This also gives you an actual size preview of your movie
    using the entire screen of either a PC or TV monitor. You can only
    output your project on a DV camcorder if your project is using a DV AVI
    template. How your video is played back will depend on the Playback
    method option that you selected in Preferences.

    Aperture
    This camera setting measures the size of the opening in the lens. It
    controls the amount of light that gets into the camera. The aperture
    setting is measured in f-stops that follow the format f/number. For
    example, f/22.
    Aspect Ratio
    The relationship of width to height for a given image or graphic.
    Keeping or maintaining the aspect ratio refers to the process of
    maintaining size relationships when either the width or height of an
    image or graphic is changed. In video, the two most common aspect
    ratios are 4:3 and 16:9 for Standard definition (SD) and High definition
    (HD) Widescreen video formats.
    AVI
    Audio-Video Interleave is a digital video file format designed
    specifically for the Microsoft Windows environment, now commonly
    used as storage for several audio and video codecs.
    AVCHD
    Advanced Video Codec High Definition is a video format that is
    designed for camcorder use. It uses a disc structure designed for Bluray Disc / high definition compatibility and can be burned on standard
    DVDs.
    Blu-ray Disc
    Blu-ray Disc is an optical disc format that uses a blue laser for high
    definition video recording and playback. Each disc also allows more
    information to be burned in 25-GB (single-layer) and 50-GB (duallayer) discs, offering more than five times the capacity of standard
    DVDs.

    Capture
    The recording of video or images to a computer hard disk.
    Capture Plug-ins
    These are utilities integrated with Corel VideoStudio Pro that allow the
    program to recognize capture devices and automatically detect them
    when they are connected to the computer.
    Clip
    A short section or part of a movie. A clip can be audio, video, still
    images or a title.
    Cloud-based storage
    A remote storage space that can be used for saving files. Instead of
    storing documents and media files on a local drive, files are saved in a
    remote database that can be accessed using a Web-connected device.
    Several companies offer cloud-based storage services that are available
    in both free and paid accounts.
    Codec
    A special algorithm or program that is used to process video. The origin
    of the word is compression/decompression or coder/decoder.
    Color Clip
    A simple background color used in a movie. It is often used for titles
    and credits since they stand out clearly against the solid color.
    Compression
    Compression is achieved through a codec and works by removing
    redundant data or describing it in terms that can be decompressed.
    Nearly all digital video is compressed in some way or another but
    differs on the degree of compression. The more compressed, the more
    resources needed for playback.
    Data Rate

    Device Control
    A software driver that allows programs to control video sources like the
    camcorder or VCR.
    DNLE
    Digital Non-Linear Editing is a method of combining and editing
    multiple video clips to produce a finished product. DNLE offers random
    access to all source materials at all times during the editing process.
    Driver
    A software program that controls the connection between a specific
    device and a computer.
    DSLR
    A type of camera that uses removable lenses and takes images using a
    reflex mirror system. The acronym DSLR stands for digital single-lens
    reflex. Compared to compact point and shoot cameras, DSLRs offer
    more manual controls and higher image quality.
    DV
    Digital Video with a capital "D" and a capital "V" stands for a very
    specific format of video, just like VHS or High-8. This format can be
    understood (played back, recorded) by DV camcorders and your
    computer, if you have the proper hardware and software. DV can be
    copied from your camcorder to your computer, and then back to your
    camcorder (after editing, of course) without any loss of quality.
    DVD
    DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is popular in video production because of
    its high quality and broad compatibility. Not only does it guarantee
    audio and video quality, DVDs make use of the MPEG-2 format, used
    to produce discs that are single- or double-sided, and single- or duallayer. They can be played on standalone DVD players or on the DVDROM drive of your PC.

    Effect
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, an effect is a special computer generated
    attribute applied to video clips that alters the appearance and quality
    of video to achieve a certain look.
    Ev
    The acronym stands for Exposure Value or the combination of settings
    for the aperture, shutter speed and ISO when the camera is in P
    (Programmed), S or Tv (shutter priority), or Av (aperture priority) mode.
    Adjusting the Ev can either overexpose or underexpose an image
    deliberately.
    Export
    The process of sharing files. When you export a file, the data is usually
    converted into a format that is recognizable by the receiving
    application. The original file remains unchanged.
    Fade
    A transition effect where the clip gradually disappears or appears. In
    video, the picture would gradually change to or from a solid color; or
    from one image to another. For audio, the transition would be from
    full volume to complete silence or vice-versa.
    FireWire
    A standard interface used for connecting digital audio/video devices
    such as DV camcorders to computers. It is Apple’s trademarked name
    for the IEEE-1394 standard.
    Footage
    A length of recorded film intended for use in a larger project.
    Frame
    A single image in a movie.
    Frame Rate
    The number of frames per second in a video. NTSC video is commonly
    29.97 frames per second (fps) while PAL has 25 fps, but smaller video
    files can be created on the computer by using lower frame rates.

    Frame Size
    The size of displayed images in video or animation sequences. If an
    image intended for the sequence is larger or smaller than the current
    frame size, it must be resized or cropped.
    HDV
    HDV is a format for recording and playback of high-definition video on
    a DV cassette tape. Announced in 2003 as an affordable high
    definition format, HDV video supports resolutions up to 1440 × 1080
    and is compressed with MPEG-2. HDV audio is compressed using
    MPEG-1 Layer 2.
    IEEE-1394
    Also known as Firewire, 1394 is standard that allows high-speed serial
    connections between the computer and an HDV/DV camcorder, or
    other high speed peripheral device. Devices conforming to recent
    updates to this standard are capable of transmitting digital data at 400
    megabits per second.
    Instant Playback
    Allows you to view the entire project without rendering. It instantly
    plays all the clips in the Preview Window without creating a temporary
    preview file in your system. Playback quality is dependent on your
    hardware configuration.
    If Instant Playback results in drop frames, then use High Quality
    Playback to preview a project.
    ISO
    This camera setting measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. A
    lower setting is ideal when there is enough light, while a higher setting
    is best when it is dark. Choosing the correct ISO setting reduces the
    noise or grain on the captured image.
    Key frame
    A specific frame in a clip that is flagged for special editing or other
    activities in order to control the flow, playback or other characteristics
    of the completed animation. For example, when applying a video filter,
    Glossary

    assigning different effect levels on the beginning and end frames
    shows a change in the appearance of the video from start to end of the
    video clip. When creating a video, assigning key frames on parts where
    there are high data transfer requirements helps control how smoothly
    the video plays back.
    Library (Corel VideoStudio Pro)
    The Library is the repository for all of your media clips. You can store
    video, audio, titles, or color clips in the Library and instantly retrieve
    them for use in a project.
    Link
    A method of storing previously saved information in another program
    without significantly affecting the size of the resulting file. Linking
    offers another advantage in that the original file can be modified in its
    original program and the changes will automatically be reflected in the
    program where it is linked.
    Mark In/Out
    Points in a clip that have been marked for editing and trimming
    purposes. A section can be selected from a longer clip by setting its
    beginning (Mark in) and ending (Mark out).
    Metering Mode
    This camera setting adjusts the exposure according to the brightness
    of the subject. The common options for metering mode include
    Evaluative, Partial, Spot, Center-weighted, and Multi-zone.
    Motion Tracking
    A cinematic and video production technique that tracks specific
    objects in video clips. Video elements can be tracked by using selected
    and distinct sets of pixels that are used to track movement. This process
    can be done by the program automatically, tracked manually, or a
    combination of both. It creates moving paths that can be used in
    seamlessly adding 2D and 3D graphics that appear to exist originally
    when shooting the video clip.

    MP3
    Abbreviation of MPEG Audio Layer-3. MP3 is an audio compression
    technology that produces near CD audio quality at a very small file size,
    making it transfer quickly over the Internet.
    MPEG-2
    A standard for video and audio compression used in products like DVD.
    MPEG-4
    A video and audio compression format that is commonly used in
    mobile devices and video streaming in the Internet that provides highquality videos at lower data rates.
    NLE
    Non-Linear Editing. In the past, conventional editing on a VCR was
    necessarily linear because of the need to access clips on a video tape in
    order. Computer editing can be done in any order that is convenient.
    Noise
    Noise may be found in audio and video. In audio, it manifests as
    unwanted residual hiss while they are random image specks and dots
    onscreen in video. These are electronic interferences that are most
    common in analog audio and video.
    NTSC/PAL
    NTSC is the video standard in North America, Japan, Taiwan, and some
    other regions. Its frame rate is 29.97 fps. PAL is common in Europe,
    Australia, New Zealand, China, Thailand, and some other Asian places,
    which has a frame rate of 25 fps. There are other differences. In the
    world of DV and DVD, NTSC has the video resolution of 720 × 480
    pixels, while PAL has 720 × 576 pixels.
    Overlay
    These are superimposed video or image clips over existing clips in your
    project.

    Plug-ins
    Plug-ins are utilities that add more functions and effects to a program.
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, plug-ins have made it possible for the
    program to automatically recognize capture devices as well as output
    videos for different purposes such as for e-mail, Web page, video
    greeting cards, and DV recording.Profile
    A profile covers various attributes for a Windows Media Format file
    such as bit rate, number and type of streams, compression quality,
    frame size and so on.
    Project File
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, a project file (*.VSP) contains the required
    information to link all associated image, audio, and video files. With
    Corel VideoStudio Pro, you must open a project file before you can edit
    a video.
    Render
    Rendering is the process of making a finished movie from the source
    files in a project.
    Scenes
    A scene is a series of continuous frames. In Corel VideoStudio Pro, each
    scene that is captured by using the Split by Scene feature is based on
    the recording date and time of the footage. In a captured DV AVI file,
    scenes can be separated into several files based on the recording date
    and time of the footage or based on changes in the content of the
    video. In an MPEG-2 file, the content changes are used to separate
    scenes into files.
    Shutter Speed
    This camera setting measures the amount of time that the shutter
    remains open. The shutter speed is measured in seconds. Fast shutter
    speeds are usually in fractions of a second (1/500, 1/250, 1/125, etc.).
    Slow shutter speeds are measured as whole numbers (1, 10, 30, etc.).

    SmartRender
    SmartRender technology saves time when generating previews by
    rendering only the parts that have been modified from your last render
    operation.Split by scene
    This feature automatically splits up different scenes into individual files.
    In Corel VideoStudio Pro, the way scenes are detected depends on
    which step you are in. In the Capture Step, Split by Scene detects
    individual scenes based on the original footage's recording date and
    time. In the Edit Step, if Split by Scene is applied to a DV AVI file, scenes
    can be detected in two ways: by the recording date and time, or by the
    changes in the content of the video. Whereas in an MPEG file, scenes
    are detected only based on the content changes.
    Storyboard
    A Storyboard is a visual representation of your movie. Individual clips
    are represented as image thumbnails on the Timeline.
    Streaming
    Allows large files to be played as they are being downloaded.
    Streaming is commonly used for large video and audio files that are
    made available on the Internet through video-sharing Web sites.
    Template
    A work pattern in a software program. They are predefined formats
    and settings to serve as guides in making projects.
    Timecode
    The timecode of a video file is a numerical way of representing the
    position in a video. Timecodes can be used to make very accurate edits.
    Timeline
    The Timeline is a graphic representation of your movie in chronological
    order. The relative size of clips on the Timeline gives you an accurate
    idea of the length of your media clips and the relative positions of
    titles, overlays and audio.

    Title
    A title can be a movie title, a caption or credit. Any text that overlays
    your video can be referred to as titles.
    Transition Effect
    A transition is a method of sequencing between two video clips, like
    fading from one into another.
    Trim
    The process of editing or cropping a video clip. Video can be trimmed
    frame by frame.
    Ultra HD (4K resolution)
    A video resolution that is approximately 4,000 pixels in width. It is also
    known as Ultra High-Definition or Ultra HD. The term is used to refer
    to all screen standards that are at least 3840 x 1080 pixels.
    Video Filters
    A video filter is a method of changing the appearance of a video clip,
    like mosaic and ripple. It can be used as a corrective measure by
    compensating for shooting errors and can also be creative by achieving
    a certain effect to video.
    Voice-over
    The narration of a video or movie is commonly called the voice-over.
    This is most notable in documentary films.
    White Balance
    This camera setting measures the color temperature of the subject.
    Different lighting conditions affect the way a camera measures the
    colors in a scene. Most digital cameras provide preset settings for
    automatic, sunlight, cloudy, fluorescent, and incandescent
    environments.
