Perfect format conversions, import any video standard, convert to any video standard, in one click
· Standard conversions are performed using optical flow processing to get the best conversion quality, with automatic audio pitch adjustment.· Import any video stardard/format, in SD/HD/4K/8K, NTSC or PAL, any resolution, any aspect ratio, any framerate, interlaced or progressive, and then just select any output video standard in SD/HD/4K/8K.· All conversions are supported, from any dimensions, any frame rates, any aspect ratios, interlaced to progressive or progressive to interlaced.
Import one, tens or hundreds of videos
Configure the processing
Select the encoder and produce
Import your videos in any format or standard. Supports common formats and containers like AVI, MTS, MOV, MXF, MP4, MKV, h.264, h.265, pro formats in 8,10,12 or 16-bit like DNxHD/DNxHR, ProRes, VC-5/Cineform or Grass Valley, image sequences, and video cameras formats from consumer to prosumer/pro models, including HDV, AVCHD, DVCProHD, newest HDSLRs from Canon, Panasonic or Sony, GoPro cameras, XDCam,AVC-Intra or XAVC.
The processing settings can be configured easily with a few mouse clicks, or by using your favorite presets.
Finally, select the output video format and encoder, and press the start button.The preview feature allows to produce and preview multiple videos to compare the results of different settings before the final processing.
Import one, tens, or hundreds of videos, in the same or different video standards or formats, PAL or NTSC, interlaced or progressive. Any format can be mixed for processing, for instance, you can import several videos in different formats like 720p60, 1080i60, 4Kp30, 480i30 or 1080p25.
Convert any format to 24p with film blur
When down converting frame rates to 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p and 60p, there are available several conversion modes: direct conversion mode, blending mode and film blur mode. The film blur mode can be configured by selecting a shutter angle or a shutter speed equivalent motion blur.The film blur mode allows to get perfect 24p like film conversions from high frame rates with low shutter speeds.For high frame rate cameras like GoPro, a 100p, 120p or 240p videos can be converted to standard 60p,50p or 24p with film blur to fix the low shutter speed effect.
The most versatile video processor
Automatically convert different sources to match your project format
Fastest transcoding to consumer and pro formats
FootageStudio supports high quality edit friendly formats, AVI, MOV, MXF Op-1a and Op-Atom, in 8-bit, 10-bit and 12-bit, with 4:2:0, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 chroma, includes support for DNxHD/HR, Cineform, ProRes, uncompresed formats and many more.Supports Adobe timecode and MXF Op-Atom DNxHD/HR and XDCAM fully compatible with Avid Media Composer, also supports Avid Markers import / export and manage.
Bit depth downscaling and upscaling with dithering
For upscaling the bit depth, for instance from 8-bit to 10-bit, FootageStudio offers three conversions modes, direct upscaling, dithering and DCR mode to improve quality. The dithering mode performs fully configurable dithering increasing reducing the banding.
Frame accurate video trimming
Simply select one or more video segments from the original video, the output video will be cut accurately from the first to the last frame selected. Frame accurate trimming works on most video formats including h.264/AVC and h.265/HEVCVideo timecode is recalculated for each video segment processed.
128-bit architecture and GPU support
Multi core CPU support: process several videos simultaneously
All processing functions are optimized to SSE3 128-bit architecture for fastest processing on newest Intel and AMD processors. CUDA and OpenCL GPU processing is suported for compatible graphic cards.
When batch-processing several videos, FootageStudiotm can process up to 4 videos simultaneously, depending on the output format and processing settings, this allows to get a speed increase of about 2x-4x.
Remove unwanted noise
Remove unwanted noise from your videos while preserving the fine detail.New XM Denoisertm is integrated in the workflow, and can be configured in the easiest way using a visual user interface with real time preview.
Overcrank multiplies the original video frames, using high quality motion estimation techniques, interpolating the motion to generate new video frames. Overcrank features an easy configuration, just adjust from 2x to 40x the final frame multiplication. For instance a 60fps video with overcrank 4x will get the equivalent of a 240fps slow motion , or 4x slowler.
Get perfect slow motion
Several video filters can be added to the workflow to modify or enhance the videos:•Motion/film blur configurable by shutter angle or shutter speed.•Remove video artifacts.•Add film grain.•Color space conversions between Rec.601(SD), Rec709(HD) and rec.2020.•Chroma smoothing and swapping.•PC/JPEG and TV/MPEG levels conversions with superwhites.•Flip video and Grayscale conversion.
Audio processing allows to change the audio characteristics like sample rate, bits per sample and audio channels. Multiple audio tracks are supported. Audio channels can be remapped to mono audio tracks, and extracted to audio files.When changing or correcting the video frame rate, the audio is pitch is automatically corrected to match the new frame rate.
FootageStudio provides to your favorite video editor all the videos matching your project format, speeding up the edition and avoiding low quality conversions.
Upscale/downscale to SD, HD, 4K and 8K
Aspect ratio conversions / Zoom
Convert any aspect ratio with letterboxing/pillarboxing or zooming, using a visual user interface to accurately adjust the changes and preview the final result in real time. Aspect ratio changes are performed with ITU-R or digital conformance.FootageStudio includes high quality digital zoom, for instance to remove lens vignetting easily.Supports any standard or custom aspect ratios like 4:3, 16:9 and film aspect ratios like 2.35:1 or 1.85:1
The original timecode is retrieved from input video. The timecode can be modified. If the video is cut to one or more segments, the timecode is recalculated for each segment.
Transform interlaced to progressive or progressive to interlaced
FootageStudiotm transforms interlaced to progressive videos using high quality motion adaptive deinterlacing, and also from progressive to interlaced using high quality motion estimation techniques.Interlaced videos can be converted to and from BFF or TFF interlacing.

Just by selecting a resample option, you can upscale or downscale your videos to any standard, SD, HD or 4k.
Transform 4K to pristine HD in 8-bit/10-bit ready to edit
Downscaling algorithm is designed to keep the small details without over sharpening, so the correct amount of sharp can be applied when editing.When downscaling 4k to HD or SD, the produced videos get crisp luma and real 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 chroma, perfect for chroma key.
Mix different video standards in the import list
Then just select a preset, for instance 1080p24, and all the videos will be converted to 1080p24 using the best conversion method for each format. Also, the frame rate and dimensions can be changed separatedly for all videos.For instance, if you have shoot several videos mixed in 1080p and 1080i, just import all the videos, select 1080p24, and all the videos will be converted to 1080p24 using the best conversion mode.
Basic color correction
Burn-in filter for timecode, frame numberfile name and custom text
Using the color correction feature, the user can change brightness, contrast, gamma and saturation.The cinetone filter adds a configurable cinematic tone to the video, and the film color filter allows to change the video colors easily.
FootageStudio includes a fully configurable burn-in filter, the user can add timecode, frame bumber, file name and custom text to the procesed videos.
8 and 16 bits internal processing
All processing features and filters support 8 and 16 bits bitdepth processing, the internal workflow in 8 or 16 bits automatically selected depending on the source video and the encoding format selected. For instance, if the source video is 12-bit and the encoding format is 10-bit, all the processing is peformed in 16 bits to keep the source quality.
Convert chroma between 4:2:0, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4
Using high quality algorithms, FootageStuidio converts your 4:2:0 videos to 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 ready for editing, or convert to 4:2:0 for distribution, Other chroma formats like DV 4:1:1 are also supported for importing.
