VideoMan 3.0 is a complete rewrite of a previous version undertaken primarily with the aim to provide the user with the capability to import-export video from DV cameras, and use modern video compression formats. This version is built on DirectXMedia API while the previous version was based on the VideoForWindows standard. VideoMan 3.0 comes with a 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 the best 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 an 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 a redesigned stylish interface which makes working with the program even easier than ever before.
