Edit movies easily

MoviePlus X5’s support for all common video file formats means it’s easy to start creating professional-looking movies in no time, regardless of whether you shoot video on a camcorder, pocket cam, digital camera, mobile phone or any other device.

Two editing modes offer an easy or advanced approach to movie-making: Storyboard mode is an easy-to-use workspace for visualising scenes, great for producing simple projects and slideshows and Timeline mode offers advance control and precision, allowing media to be arranged over unlimited tracks.

It’s so easy to find the tools you need with MoviePlus X5’s intuitive interface and resizable floating panes. On-screen help, tutorials and step-by-step instructions provide you with professional tips, tricks and techniques to ensure you’re never without guidance.

Feature: End-to-end HD

End-to-end HD

Enjoy your memories in the highest quality when you import, edit and export HD video. MoviePlus X5 supports AVCHD and HDV formats and works great with full HD 1080, 50p and 60p recordings.

Editing HD footage, even on older PCs, is better than ever thanks to improved proxy file generation and management of background tasks. When editing HD video, MoviePlus X5 creates a lower resolution ‘proxy’ copy of the video for you to edit. Proxy files are much faster than HD files and require less of your computer’s resources. So video quality isn’t compromised, MoviePlus will export your project using the original HD files to give you the best possible results.

Burn HD movies straight to Blu-ray Disc or take advantage of AVCHD export to burn HD video to a DVD. If you want to share HD video online, MoviePlus X5 includes the H.264 codec for creating compressed MPEG 4 files.

Use powerful tools

Trim videos without deleting any part of your source video files and accurately change video and audio properties with keyframeable effects, transitions, video motion and much more.

Complex productions may need video, audio and effects tracks, often on a single timeline. MoviePlus X5 gives you an unlimited amount of tracks on the timeline so you can add as many elements as you want to your movie.

Produce professional picture-in-picture effects or tile multiple videos together to show additional visuals in one dynamic scene. Enjoy a rich cinematic experience with a range of effects and adjustments to enhance your movie’s audio, along with support for Dolby Digital Stereo.

Add stylish effects

There are over 100 effects, such as old film or romantic diffuse glow, to enhance videos. And MoviePlus X5 provides over 80 customizable transitions that will impress viewers too, including cross-fade, wipe, blur and 3D flip.

Put your actors onto any background with quality chroma keying (green screening) and add captions, titles and credits with a variety of professional text styles. Bring words to life using animation presets and superimpose any transparent image onto your videos.

Make adjustments to lighting and colour balance, reduce video noise and remove unwanted camera movements, plus more, all with MoviePlus X5.

Make your own DVDs and Blu-ray Discs

Burn your movies direct to Blu-ray Disc, DVD, VCD and SVCD, and create ISOs, all within MoviePlus X5 – no other software is required!

Give DVDs and Blu-ray Discs a navigable, animated menu. Choose from an impressive range of highly-customisable and stylish templates or create one from scratch using your own background.

Viewers can easily jump to any scene in your movie. Video thumbnails provide a link to chapter markers and scene shortcuts so you can preview a scene before selection.
