Bring the power of video to your classroom

New! Now there's an easy and affordable way for schools, colleges and universities to harness the learning potential of video. Corel® VideoStudio® X6 distills the creative potential of VideoStudio® Pro X6 into a comprehensive video editor that's less complex and easier to learn, especially for those new to video editing.

Corel VideoStudio X6 is designed for education institutions that want to widely deploy video-editing software, but can't afford the high costs traditionally associated with video production. Whether you're looking to provide an easy step-up from Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, or trying to add creative video-editing software at the lowest possible cost, VideoStudio X6 fits the bill.

What is VideoStudio X6?

VideoStudio X6 is an affordable, licence version of Corel's popular VideoStudio® Pro X6. VideoStudio X6 gives students and teachers the most popular tools from VideoStudio Pro's rich feature set, including timeline and storyboard video editing, Stop Motion Animation, Time Lapse effects and much more.

VideoStudio® Essentials provides a simplified, easier-to-use video-editing experience allowing schools, colleges and universities to site licence this powerful multi-track video editor at very low cost with no usage reporting requirements.

How does VideoStudio X6 compare with VideoStudio Pro X6?

VideoStudio X6 continues the tradition of easy, fast and creative video editing with a simplified approach to better accommodate classroom learning and other educational settings.

VideoStudio X6 is highly compatible with VideoStudio Pro X6. Users can transfer projects back and forth from X6 Pro to X6 very easily. VideoStudio X6 features translate to Pro—however, exclusive-to-Pro features or project elements may not be supported in X6.

If your require more advanced features, such as Blu-ray Disc™ authoring, high-speed AVCHD editing, or advanced picture-in-picture effects, Corel’s flexible licensing options make it easy to add seats of the more advanced VideoStudio Pro X6.

Video Format Support

Video editing has a reputation for high costs and highly inflexible deployment rules—often due to the burden of expensive third-party codecs. VideoStudio X6 dramatically slashes the cost of adopting video software by avoiding expensive video formats and taking advantage of the formats already supported on your PCs, whether it's those included in Windows, provided with other installed applications or loaded from free, open-source codec packs.

The following matrix describes the formats supported natively by VideoStudio X6. You can choose to easily add support for other formats by adding third-party codec packs, or by upgrading to VideoStudio Pro X6.

Is VideoStudio X6 compatible with my camera?

VideoStudio X6 is compatible with many cameras, but support for specific cameras depends on the codecs installed on your PC.

What are codecs?

Codecs are software codes that let your computer interact with your camera. VideoStudio Pro X6 comes with an array of codecs and will automatically work with most cameras. VideoStudio X6 doesn't include all of these cost-bearing codecs, instead working with free codecs and the codecs you already have on your PC.

Upon installation, VideoStudio X6 will support the same formats installed on your computer. On Windows 7 Premium or Professional operating systems, you'll be able to work with a wide range of cameras and formats. Other common Windows operating systems, such as Windows 7 Basic, offer fewer codecs. Usually you'll find that your copy of Windows, and thus VideoStudio X6, can support .wmv, .avi, .wm, .asf, .wtv, .dvr-ms, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpe, .m1v, .mp2, .mpv2 and .vob.

How can I test the compatibility of my camera?

Try playing your file in Windows Media Player (WMP). VideoStudio X6 will generally support the same formats. If your media file plays in WMP, expect it to play in VideoStudio X6.

If you find your computer doesn't have the appropriate codecs, you have a number of options, including:

  • Installing codecs or codec-bearing software that came bundled with your camera
  • Loading royalty-free open source codec packs available online, such as VLC or FFshow
