Today Corel announced the release of Corel® MotionStudio 3D™, the latest addition to the company's Digital Media product line. A complete 3D titling and animation application, MotionStudio 3D makes it easy for home video enthusiasts, graphics professionals, and web designers to enhance their projects with sophisticated title effects, motion graphics and 3D animation. MotionStudio 3D features an intuitive user interface and an Easy Pallet which allows users to quickly apply 3D pre-sets to their text, graphics, or web-based projects. Optimized for the latest GPU and CPU chipsets, MotionStudio 3D delivers a fast and responsive experience to users, allowing them to apply effects and view their changes in real-time.

Bringing Hollywood Home

With MotionStudio 3D, it's easy for anyone to apply Hollywood- style effects to their home video productions. Users can create memorable title sequences by making text bounce, twist and explode. They can also create and embellish 3D objects by adding realistic motion blur and lighting, as well as particle effects such as fire, smoke and snow. When their video project is complete, editors can easily export their work directly to VideoStudio Pro X4 or any other video-editing software.

"Title sequences are one of the most important visual elements in setting the tone, look, and feel of a film," said Greg Wood, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Digital Media at Corel. "Now that 3D and motion graphics are no longer a fad, but a staple in Hollywood productions, video editing enthusiasts are following suit. MotionStudio 3D puts these advanced tools into the hands of video editing consumers, cracking open a range of new creative possibilities for the home video producer."

New Dimension of Graphic Design

In addition to video production, MotionStudio 3D is ideal for designers looking to author 3D graphics for print, web or Flash®. With its support for both vector and raster formats used in popular programs such as CorelDRAW®, users of MotionStudio 3D can import their custom designs and quickly convert them into 3D objects for banners, logos and animation. With dedicated 3D tools and exceptional hardware acceleration, users can edit in real-time and maintain their creative flow.

"We all want our work to stand out from the crowd and with MotionStudio 3D, graphic designers and web developers now have a powerful, affordable and efficient way to experiment with new creative effects that will add a signature element to their projects," added Wood.
