Roxio has launched VideoWave 7 Pro aimed at digital video camera owners and video enthusiasts. The suite provides home users with the tools they need to turn raw video footage into home movies to watch on the PC, via the Internet or DVD players
in the living room.
Retailing for €90, VideoWave 7 Pro offers new features that include a media management system, a smart-capture utility, a rich label-creation tool and a DVD authoring application based on the Easy Media Creator burn engine.
DVD Builder allows for the creation of professional-looking DVDs, VCDs, or SVCDs from home video content, and commercial content such as TV shows recorded on set-top DVD Recorders.
VideoWave also promises to help users save time with features such as Plug & Burn, which turns captured video into a ready-to-play DVD, or the CineMagic editor, which automatically turns raw footage into a movie with background music.
Timeline editing features have also been included to give the user greater control. An expandable timeline view with zoom feature provides the ability to precisely control the timing of each element in a production.
There are also 14 individual tracks for independently and directly manipulating production elements, such as video sequences, native audio, sound effects, background music, text, effects and overlays.
Advanced editors provide sophisticated refinement tools for correcting photos, adjusting levels on audio files, setting the style and path of titles, and adjusting the intensity and timing of special effects.
There are also video overlays for employing broadcast news techniques, such as compiling picture-in-picture video sequences or ‘blue screen’ effects in which a background of one video clip is replaced with another. In addition, there are narration capabilities for easily generating a voiceover to accompany a production.
