    Question. I have many recordings stored in the cloud (link which I can share or view) which are each 1+ hour. I’d like to capture on Corel and edit to create marketing highlight reels. 1. Do I have to save to hard disc first (hassle but open to it) and 2. these are big, big files which many video editors can’t handle (they must split first).

    How to import organization’s logo to project? I thought I was correctly importing ours (i.e. it’s in .png), but its white background turned black. Does Corel VideoStudio offer a live webinar for complete beginners?

        Hello David,

        Great question! Given how much cloud storage we are seeing these days, we suspect many more people will be encountering similar issues with a variety of programs. To edit a cloud-stored file, you typically need to either save a local copy of the recording or set up the cloud storage drive as a network drive visible in Windows. Once you have done that, it can be added to a VideoStudio project and edited as usual. We recommend saving a local copy however; if the file becomes unavailable due to a connection issue, it would be very difficult to continue working on the project!

    How do you change the file format of an edited video (e.g. to MP4) so that the edited video can be viewed by others that don’t have the Corel Video Studio software? (I have the 2019 version).

      Hello Sarah,

      It sounds like you still need to export your video project! You can find out more information on how to do that in our Export Video tutorial.

    Does VideoStudio 2020 have any video stabilization effects.? I have airborne footage that needs it.

      Hello Howard,

      Thanks for asking! VideoStudio Ultimate includes the ProDAD Mercalli tool for video stabilization. You can find more information on the Mercalli tool in our Stabilize Shaky Video Footage tutorial. This tutorial is for an older version of VideoStudio (it’s on the list for a potential re-release), but the ProDAD tool’s location and functionality are similar – ProDAD has definitely refined it since then, it’s better than ever for stabilization, but the workflow for adding the Mercalli effect to a clip is still similar to this.

    Hi. I have recently upgrade from Studio version 15 to Studio 23.
    I have already created the title to my movie.
    Now I’d like to end my movie with the names of all participating “actors” names scrolling up to the
    very last name of all participants. Is this available on Studio 23? and if yes, where do I find it ?

      Hello Petrus,

      It sounds like you want to create end credits! You can do this using the Title Editor as well. Just pick the look you want for the text, resize it as needed, select Motions > Emphasis > Roll Up for the scrolling effect, and copy-paste your list of names to the text box on the right hand side of the editor. That’s it, you’ve got scrolling end credits now!

    Can someone help me in using ProDAD Mercalli filter? I add the filter to my video timeline, an “filter image” appears in the preview window telling me to analyze the video. I click to customize the filter and launch the analysis. When finished, I go to the Share workspace and launch the rendering. The ProDAD Mercalli image I see in preview window is in my rendered video, over the video image. What am I doing wrong?

    Is it possible in Videostudio ultimate to reduce pixelization in a video? I have some chessboard stripe like artefacts or some pixel zones and I am trying to get rid of these as much as possible.

    I own Studio 9 and 12. Now I just bought 23 and I am totally lost. How do I capture from a DV Camcorder that still uses tape and, also from a USB? Thank you very much!

      Hello Carl,

      Not to worry! You can use the Capture Video tool to transfer video from a DV Camcorder. We don’t currently have a video tutorial for his, so here is the help entry on using the Capture Video tool to get you started.

    I am attempting to learn VideoStudio after using Premiere Elements and find the workflow very different.
    1. Can you add markers to the timeline?
    2. How can I see the audio waveform of a music track.
    For my first project, I am editing to music. So, I need to see the waveform, place markers to identify sections, and then edit video according to those sections.
    If I can add markers, can I use keyboard shortcuts to jump between these markers. Example: use arrow keys.

    Will this version of VideoStudio support the higher resolution videocams? I bought a Logitech Brio webcam and VideoStudio X8 could not bring it into a project well at all and no where near with any resolution that the camera can do. Also, will this version include the Screen Capture? My VideoStudio X8 Video Capture software will not load up any more. The screen blinks and nothing happens when I try to bring up the screen capture.

      Hello Sean,

      Yes, VideoStudio 2020 supports 4k footage so you should be all set to import files from your Brio! It also comes with an updated version of the included screen capture software.

      Hello A.D.,

      The Blu-Ray plugin is an optional, separate purchase from within VideoStudio.

      Hello Grace,

      Depending on region, you can install VideoStudio on up to two devices, although it cannot be used concurrently on both devices. You can find the full details in the Corel End User License Agreement.

    I am brand new to video software. I have tons of old family video footage that has been converted to a digital format. I would like to make 4 different projects, one for each kid, with the best highlights from our family movies. The problem is that each video is over two hours long so I don’t want to have to through each video 4 times pulling out what I want for each kid. Is there a way that as I go through each video, I can just toggle between the four projects and copy the clips I want into each kid’s project?

    I have Video StudioX8; I have transferred videos from iPhone XS as .MOV to my PC (Surface Pro) Windows 10 Pro. When I attempt to upload to Video Studio X8 only the audio is coming through with no video feed (white screen). How do we get the video feed on Studio X8?

    Thank you

      Hello Brett,

      We no longer support or update VideoStudio X8, and are not certain what the cause of this issue might be – it is possible a windows update is causing the problem. That said, two possible solutions are making sure you have the latest version of Apple QuickTime installed (VideoStudio needs that to open MOV files), or downloading the trial of VideoStudio 2020 to check if it can open those files for you.

    It would be great to use PaintShops’s plug-in in Video Studio Ultimate. This will further surpass any other editing programs.
    I will appreciate your comments.
