Discover how PaintShop Photo Pro X3 and VideoStudio Pro X3 can help you take the next step with your photos and video.
They still call it photography but it's more now. Photos move seamlessly into video and back. What was once considered two separate experiences is now just one.
At 8fps, the sheer numbers of photos you can shoot changes the equation. High resolution is the norm. Shooting in RAW is a real option. Having lots of shots opens up new creative options for dynamic project, collages, books and beyond.
And when you put down your still camera, there's always the option to pick up a video camera. Today video is ubiquitous, spontaneous, casual, tapeless. From cell phones to HD camcorders, the volume of clips is growing so that YouTube moments today mean as much as Kodak moments meant years ago.
Of course, all that amazing content has to come from somewhere. But that's not hard to figure. Just look at the camera in your hands. It shoots video - probably HD.
Did you notice, it sees people, so faces stay in focus. And it catches them when they smile. Smarter cameras mean more great pictures. And that's behind the new wave of interest in DSLRs from soccer moms and casual shooters.
But it doesn't stop there. Your cell phone shoots video too. And there are those new things that are easy on the wallet, fit in a shirt pocket and capture HD video.
Video and photo are no longer activities on two sides of a digital divide. Devices are converging and barriers are dropping. Video hobbyists have long known that the best videos also make creative use of still images.
PaintShop Photo Pro X3 can help enhance any video production with custom titles & title masks, "lower third" graphics, as well as objects, overlays and frames. Personalized DVDs require assets such as menu backgrounds, objects and labels for discs & cases. Projects ranging from simple slideshows to creative "Motion Photography" stop-motion and time-lapse projects need tools for managing large numbers of photos.
Paint Shop Photo Pro X3 let's you quickly and efficiently prepare photos and images before importing to VideoStudio for video creation.
More and more photographers are embracing video as part of their world. Cameras can now shoot both stills and video at very high image quality, opening up completely new possibilities for sharing and expressing yourself.
With VideoStudio Pro X3, you can go beyond just printing or Web galleries to share your photos as a slideshow with advanced pan & zoom effects.
Shoot video on your new DSLR or point & shoot, and create pro-looking movies with professional titles, background music, overlays and visual effects.
