These files with advanced codec HEVC, high 4K resolution, and frame rate at up to 240fps are bound to poor compatibility and large file size, which lead to improper playback, system freezing in post-production, file send failure, quality degradation after uploading to Instagram and the like. Spawned by a high demand for a one-stop tool to solve all the issues without the need to install a pile of extra iOS apps, Digiarty Software makes VideoProc at the forefront of this revolution, summoning video editing, converting and resizing in a single tool.


The software is given away now to celebrate its new release. Customers can take part in the sweepstakes to get the license code for free and give it a whirl, and even win iPhone XS before Nov 26, 2018.


The groundbreaking release sets to mark an inflection point in iPhone video processing industry – broaden video processing from narrow-sided video editing such as aspect ratio control, brightness adjustment, deinterlacing, noise reduction, motion compensation and more to an all-sided task reaching out to iPhone video resizing, converting and adjusting. True to its name, VideoProc, short for Video Processing, makes a clear explanation of the video processing concept and touches up iPhone clips for easier storing, sharing, and playing with the following handpicked features:


1. Edit: Tailoring the full-function layout to user experience, the easy video editor delivers the most streamlined performance for iPhone users to trim, crop, merge, split, rotate, subtitle, deshake, denoise, add effects, remove fisheye, etc all in one single software.

2. Resize: Compress, crop, zoom and resize iPhone 4K UHD videos by up to 90% without any loss of quality. Cut and shorten the iPhone video length for easy sharing, sending and storing.

3. Transcode: Encode and decode iPhone video regardless of HEVC/H.264 codec, resolution (4K/1080p/720p) or frame rate (30/60/120/240fps). And convert MKV, AVI, WebM or other video files to iPhone supported formats.

4. Adjust: Adjust playback speed to make slow/fast motion video, force A/V sync, change video setting like resolution, bit rate, frame rate, video/audio codec, sample rate and more, and optimize the quality of iPhone video quality for easy sharing without quality loss.


Check the complete iPhone video processing tips to edit, cut, trim, crop, resize and convert iPhone videos in a one-stop shop. In addition, VideoProc is furnished with stunning video downloading and recording features to cover your daily needs.

Emulsio 3.0: 4K Video Stabilization to iPhone/iPad

Creaceed today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Emulsio 3.0, a major upgrade to their video stabilization app for iPhone and iPad. Emulsio 3.0 adds support for 4K videos as well as a better rolling shutter distortion correction including third-party sensors (drones, GoPro (TM), etc.). This release also features an updated user interface with improved support for modern iOS features.


Emulsio 3.0 lets users stabilize videos using specific image analysis technology, providing full control over the process. This makes it a great companion app to video content creators (YouTube, etc.), even when using third-party cameras or drones, which are fully supported. Emulsio stabilizes 4K videos, which are typically not processed even on latest devices. And for videos recorded with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), Emulsio’s processing adds up to produce even smoother motion. The video can also be edited within the app; parts of it can be deleted or trimmed before final export. The user can compensate horizontal, vertical, rotational camera motion as well as rolling shutter distortion (wobble) which has been improved in version 3.0 with the possibility of adjusting the amplitude of correction depending on sensor. Emulsio comes with built-in preview to fine-tune results prior to final video export.


New features in 3.0:
* More accurate stabilization for 4K videos shot on device or from a third-party camera. 4K videos typically are not stabilized, but Emulsio lets you process them anyway.

* Rolling shutter distortion correction enhancement: amplitude of correction can be adjusted depending on sensor. Apple camera sensor values are provided, and third-party camera sensors can be calibrated within the app. Emulsio can now process videos from drones or GoPro(TM) cameras, including rolling shutter artifact correction.

* User interface has been refined to make stabilization settings easier to understand. Modern iOS features have been added or improved: Peek & Pop to preview videos from the import list (3D Touch on iPhone, long press on iPad), HEVC file handling (input / output), iPhone X, Drag & Drop and iPad multitasking.


Other features include:
* Non-destructive time editing
* Adjustable stabilization strength and motion intent (standard or cinematic)
* Stabilizer data reporting
* Black border handling
* Discontinuity handling in video stream
* iOS Photos extension to process videos directly in the Photos app.
* Live previewing & split-screen comparison of stabilized video vs. original one
* Frame by frame visualization of motion compensation and associated limits
* Optimized for 120 and 240 FPS videos
* Optimized for 64-bit devices
* Fast, GPU-optimized image processing to handle the video in a fraction of its duration


Pricing and Availability:
Emulsio 3.0 requires an iPhone or iPad running iOS 9.0 or later. It can be freely downloaded on the App Store, and is localized in 14 languages. The stabilization can be tried out as well as video editing features. Pro Pack 2 offers support for 4K videos, improved correction of rolling shutter distortion including third-party sensor calibration, and removal of the watermark. It can be purchased within the app for $7.99/8,99Euro. A special upgrade price of $3.99/4,49Euro is available for users who previously purchased Pro Pack 1. Pro Pack 1 users otherwise keep the features they already had (standard stabilization and watermark removal).

MacX Fastest 4K Video Processing Backed by QSV/Nvidia/AMD Acceleration

MacXDVD Software is at the forefront of high-speed 4K Ultra HD video processing. The company recently added Intel Quick Sync Video, NVIDIA and AMD to MacX Video Converter Pro V6.3.0. The groundbreaking use of these hardware acceleration systems leads to the most powerful processing solution for large videos from 4K 60fps to 6K 100fps and beyond, yielding the fastest possible render speed; a whopping 5x speed increase over other applications with super-quality results.


The popularity of 4K UHD, 3D, and virtual reality videos can tax CPU, RAM, and storage requirements. If the processing power can’t keep up, the video workflow will immediately turn into frustrating experience, from holding the huge raw UHD/HD video content in a device, to 4K editing, compressing, cutting, adjusting, enhancing, to codec decoding and encoding. Choppy and stuttering output is the most common case, let alone hardware issues like 90%- 99% CPU usage, stuck computer, overheating and fast battery drain.


“To let people dive into 4K world easily, MacXDVD Software sought to provide the most efficient UHD video processing solution as quickly as possible.” explains Jack Han, CEO of MacXDVD Software, “MacX Video Converter Pro V6.3.0 marks a significant milestone in processing ultra HD videos. By pioneering the support for the major hardware accelerations, the program offers a faster-than-ever speed and engaging level of quality, unobtainable elsewhere.”


Leveraging the superior processing power of the Intel QSV, NVIDIA and AMD architecture, MacXDVD radically speeds the video transcoding tasks at a lower total energy cost than programs based on CPU only. Specifically, the resource-intensive 4K workflows are carried out in specialized hardware components like GPU, solving the CPU performance bottleneck in a power-efficient manner. By harnessing the power of dedicated graphics processing hardware, MacXDVD beats others by a long shot with 500% speedups & far less sacrificed image quality.


While a traditional CPU-only solution takes an hour to process a 4K ultra HD video in MKV, MacX Video Converter Pro slashes that time by up to 70%-80% with an average speed of 250-320fps. When both recent Intel CPUs and NVIDIA GPUs are installed on a computer, such as Intel Core i7 processor and GeForce GTX 680, it promises an even faster performance. Not only that, more CPU is freed up for online browsing, video playback, gaming, and any other workloads.


Other enhancements in MacX Video Converter Pro V6.3.0:
* Added support for H.264 encoding in Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7500
* Added support for frame filtering using AMD Radeon when available
* Added support for burned-in SUP/PGS subtitles
* Added Apple Pixlet decoder


Pricing and Availability
MacX Video Converter Pro is normally priced at $59.95 (USD) for a single license. But now, everyone can take the fastest 4K UHD video processing program home before April 10, simply by guessing the time it needs to process a 2.5G MKV video.

MacXDVD Adds 4K Support to MacX YouTube Downloader

MacXDVD Software, a leading multimedia solution provider, announced today the support for 4K videos in the company’s smash hit MacX YouTube Downloader. The 4K upgrade marks a significant industry milestone. It unlocks 4K movies & videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Vevo, Instagram, Liveleak, BBC, IMDb and 300 more other popular movie & music sites and lets UHD content reach users’ 4K home-theaters, mobile devices & computer set-ups at a 5X faster speed.


MacXDVD Adds 4K Support to MacX YouTube Downloader


Designed with a purist approach for online videos download in mind, MacX YouTube Downloader has been synonymous with the most refined video download experience, with extended ability to free download any videos available online, ranging from SD, HD 1080P, 720P, Blu-ray, to 3D and VR 360 videos. Today, MacX YouTube Downloader has over 50 million users around the world, with its superfast speed and high reliability listed as the main driver behind the wave for its huge downloads. Beyond that, the program has been recognized as a “must-have” free HD video downloader by prominent sites like CNET, Techradar, and MacWorld.


Now its download performance and universal compatibility are further complemented by the support of 4K HEVCs, VP9, and H.264 videos. This enhancement combines the latest technology with MacXDVD’s many years of experience in downloading the high-quality video. A customized 4K download engine integrates MacX YouTube Downloader’s built-in multi-threading and batch downloading tech, to ensure smooth and reliable 4K UHD and 8K (8192×4320) video download even for low internet bandwidth.


The upgrade also breaks the barrier of current 4K video download speed, and increases to that was thought to be unachievable. The new industry speed record is now nearly 5 times faster than an average downloader. E.g., with the help of MacX YouTube Downloader, a full 4k music video will be saved offline to your devices in no more than 30 seconds. Since the Ultra HD formats are still very new, ongoing speed boost can be expected to further push the limits.


“Owners of devices like the latest iPhone, iPad, Macs and 4K TVs are eager to jump into 4K; MacX YouTube Downloader’s upgrade couldn’t be better timed,” said Jack Han, CEO of MacXDVD Software. “As we all know, UHD contents place an ever-growing data demand to stream the large volumes of 4K videos quickly and smoothly. But our unbeatable download speed and impeccable video quality break those limits. So everybody, let’s embrace the magic of 4K.”
