    How do I start a project using from Pre recorded dvd. I place the dvd in drive but don’t know how to start creating a edited master for uploading to website

      What I do (and I don’t know if it is the best method) is just open the folder with the explorer (even if it is in the dvd) and drag the clip I want to the timeline in the edit tab. Hope this helps.

    Zdravím, používám Video studio Ultimate 2019 a jsem velice spokojený. Jediné s čím bojuji je nastavení v PC. Uvítal bych více tutoriálů k nastavení na starších PC. Jinak děkuji za fungující podporu.

    This is my first time in using Corel Video Studio Ultimate 2020. I have used another Video there are many difference between the two. I feel the corel Video Studio Ultimate 2020 is much better and accompanies my PSP-21.

    I have a completed making a video slideshow with video combined. At the end I have several lines from a document describing the history of of the building. All aspects of the video works very well but for the script runs so fast it is imposable to read, how do I make this scroll at a slower rate. of speed?

    Also in the Titles each of the applications the names of each are in German I think is there a way to change this to English?

    These are terrific tutorials. Sometimes the feature set is overwhelming. The features are easy to understand and to use; I just wish I knew more about knowing when to use a feature to make a story richer without killing the story itself.

    I have had this software for a few years but never got around to use it recently when I decided to record abuse of African women in on of the ME countries. I am learning to use it properly and will like to know how to distort a sound/voice of interviewee. Please how do I achieve this?

      Hello Joe,

      While VideoStudio has a number of audio tools, they are more centered around cleaning up sound, overlaying and mixing tracks, and generally pairing audio with video. This sounds like a situation that needs a more specialized audio software suite.

        I hope that I can mention a free non-competing product here. I know you can manipulate audio tracks quite dramatically using Audacity. The trouble will be if your interviewer and interviewee are in the same track. It can be done, especially if they are not speaking over each other, but it is a whole lot easier if you separately mic and record individual tracks.

    I found the tutorials help full, but is it possible to get a written copy of it, so that I can refer back to any portion of the tutorial without having to play the whole thing over and over again. I would find that very help full. PDF file would be great, especially for older persons with fading memories.

      Hello Jürgen,

      Thanks for getting in touch! We would suggest starting with the German User Guide, which has tips and instructions on how to use all of the tools in VideoStudio.

    I have a very good Image thanks to Corel. The whole system has been way beyond what I first imagend. The tutorials are like magic and every one who searches for a video system should give Corel a free trial as it has much more to offer than other systems..Especially I like the support system where tutorials come in to play.Peter Rutkin
