Re: Wishlist for VS 2021

Please bring back the ability to use SmartSound tracks natively! The current "music" plugin ScoreFitter, if one could even call it that, is AWFUL and NOT even worth using! TripleScoop music is just too expensive...$20 just for one song, are you kidding me? For any new folks who have never seen Smart...

Re: Wishlist for VS 2019

Please bring back the SmartSound plugin!! Smartsound brought a level of professionalism that just isn't matched with the cheezy ScoreFitter MIDI files.

Re: Launch Boris Graffiti outside of VS X9?

Oh well, that's what I was afraid of. It just made it easier to launch Boris to experiment.

Launch Boris Graffiti outside of VS X9?

A few versions ago, perhaps X7, it was possible to launch Boris Graffiti outside of VideoStudio. Has that ability been removed?

Re: Wishlist for VideoStudio X10

Please, please, please bring back SmartSound! I realize that perhaps there was a financial reason for Corel to move to ScoreFitter, but as a 25-year retired veteran musician in the Army, ScoreFitter sounds well, simply awful. The instruments on ScoreFitter are rendered entirely using synthesizers an...

Re: Optimising for YouTube uploads/file size

Mike, check out my tutorial on installing the Xvid codec: 09: VS 11/11.5: Encoding in Xvid MPEG-4. It's a bit dated, but should still be valid. If you have any questions, let me know and I'll help as much as I can.

Re: VS: Cover Flow Effect

OK, so using VS X8.5 I'm still able to do this. I'll review my instructions and clarify them. One thing I noticed, and perhaps this changed over time in the newer versions, but as Brian noticed, you can't seem to apply the transparency to the mask because once you click on Apply Overlay Options the ...

Re: VS: Cover Flow Effect

Plastic,

Could you please tell me what version of VS you're using? I wrote this tutorial some time ago (for an older version of VS), so I'll need to revisit this for the current version. I'll repost new instructions if needed, or at least respond to help you a bit more.

Thanks Don! It's nice to see this old tutorial still getting some mileage.

Re: ESPN-Like Transition Effects for X2?

Re: ProX3 compatibility with Windows Live Movie Maker

scotview, I had the same issue with earlier versions of VS and Windows Movie Maker. It started with some of Corel's recent versions (and yes, there seems to be a war between the codecs). It's an inconvenience, but you'll find that aside from perhaps a few different transitions that MM has that VS do...

Re: Video Stabilisation

There is a graphic to the right of the preview screen that says "FX." Click on it. This is where you will find the Anti-Shake filter. To place it in your video, click on the filter and drag it onto your desired video in the Timeline. Now I'm not sure, but it is possible that since you are using the ...

Re: MF7SE: Custom DVD Menus?

I would love it if Corel allowed us to finally create a custom DVD menu template without having to use PhotoImpact. Ideally, this could be handled using images and an xml file. The xml file would contain the information such as the images used, imange placement (such as buttons, frames that outline ...
