STOIK VideoMan

Simple and powerfull multitrack video editor.

Compose a movie with sound, titles, transitions and dynamic effects with support of modern compression formats.

STOIK VideoMan comes with completely new Capture module for import/output of video through capture boards and DV cameras. One of the major features is the ability to export movies directly to Windows Media video files. Windows Media technology from Microsoft offers good solution for delivering high compression video and audio for such bandwidth-critical applications as streaming video over LAN or Internet, or playing movies on handheld devices.

Video editing capabilities are significantly enhanced with features like unlimited number of overlay tracks, navigator window, super screen color keying, etc. Considerable optimization was carried out to speed up rendering. All the additional power is packed under redesigned stylish interface which makes working with the program even easier than ever before.
