Cool 3D Production Studio is as the name implies used for creating 3 dimensional things such as fancy titles, rotating globes, rolling dice and such. It is used for creating short clips that will later be inserted into a (much longer) video. It is not an editing program.

MediaStudio and its younger brother VideoStudio are video editing programs. With these you grab hold of a video which can originate from a wide variety of sources such as a camcorder, TV card, Internet or DVD disc. You can then edit that video much like old fashioned film where you would take a pair of scissors and cut it up and then with a splicing block glue it all back together again.

Most users would create Titles and things with Cool 3D Productioin Studio and then insert them into a VideoStudio or MediaStudio project.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been away.

How much is it in stores and whats the newest version out. I was walking threw a pc store and seen one with a globe for like 80$

So this will make titles look better and give me more options then what mps has. I think I might pick this up.

I think you had better read the System Requirements before purchasing. According to your profile you are running Windows Media Center. This may not work on your system...;)

I will buy this maybe after x-mas some time. Hopefully I don't run into issues.

The one I was looking at was 3.0 I looked at the box again.

What is the newest version out of cool3d? And is Ulead making a newer version to be released? Should i wait a bit?

Latest COOL3D Products:

Entry-level consumer: COOL3D 3.5
Prosumer product: COOL3D Production Studio

Corel/Ulead has not released anything in their 3D line for years, so most likely COOL3D has been discontinued. The only reason why it is listed on their website is because it must be making sales but not enough to merit the development of a new product. It's a shame, because Corel could have really created a great product by incorporating the higher-end features of Bryce into Ulead's COOL3D Production Studio. Keeping a simple user interface with pro-end features could have really done well in the market. I think more users are interested these days with adding 3D into their workflow and Corel could have stepped right in and created a winner not only for their 3D product line but for their video editing line as well.

Whilst you currently have Windows Media Centre Edition the following 2 points are worthy of note.

1. In a recent communication with Corel regarding the future of DVD Workshop I received the following reply
This is because we have no resource for the new build in the feature. And we won¡¦t release patch for DWS too, as you know, it can¡¦t be installed in Vista.

We focus on UVS and DMF and other products.

Regards,
I am aware that PhotoImpact is being developed and have already submitted some feedback to Corel regarding future versions of PhotoImpact. I have had no communications with Corel regarding Cool3DPS and have the opinion that it falls under the same umbrella as DVD Workshop and will not be developed further.

2. If at a future date you find yourself using Microsoft Vista then you will be happy to know that thanks to a discovery by a forum member, it is possible to use Cool3DPS with Vista.
