Greater flexibility in recording videos with Motorized Stand

If you are using our Motorized Stand or Fashion Studio PRO, you can benefit from:

  • Recording elevation video clips: you can now set custom elevation movement range, set video clip duration and record a dynamic clip while camera moves up/down – CUSTOM RANGES
  • Manually start/stop recording at any given time – INFINITE RECORDING MODE

Faster video editing and improved video player

In the new Station, you can trim your videos straight away as the trimming tool is always accessible in the EDIT tab. No need to enter the Trimming mode to adjust a clip timeline. You can also immediately see whether a video clip was trimmed and how much. Video player was also optimized and you can now preview videos with more FPS.

Extracting a still image from a video frame

Want to use a video frame as a still image? Nothing simpler. With the new release, you can just pause the video at the frame you like, click “Extract frame from the video” button and get a new image in STILL tab.

Easier brightness control directly in the Live View

Now you can work faster and more conveniently with a camera shutter speed (brightness) control available directly in the Live View window. No more jumping to/from Camera settings when you just want to fine tune exposure.
