Avid Xpress DV v3.5 is built on a real-time architecture that delivers more than 100 customizable real-time effects, professional-level color correction with waveform and vectorscope analysis, and multiple simultaneous real-time streams in one software program. With Avid Xpress DV, users can preview a title, apply a dissolve, perform color correction and animate a picture-in-picture effect simultaneously, without rendering. The new version also lets users customize every parameter of each real-time effect and see it all instantly. The program's customizable real-time effects come with multiple, simultaneous streams, as well as customizable work spaces. Toolsets, DV scene extraction, eight video tracks, quick transitions, drag-and-drop storyboarding, and other features make this latest version of Avid Xpress DV faster and easier to use.
