Visual Effects in Focus: VSDC Video Editor 5.5 Adds Instagram-like Filters, Blending modes and Mask Tool

September 27, 2016

Flash-Integro, a leading free software developer, launched a new version of its flagship video editor designed to deliver superior editing experience across the entire workflow: from file import to final rendering.

Completely oriented towards the customer requirements of today, VSDC Free Video Editor stepped up with an upgraded array of visual effects. Instagram-like filters featuring most popular overlays enable to enhance the whole video image with one click and don’t demand any special editing skills.

Along with that professional blending modes will become an obvious bonus for colorists and those who’d like to create their own visual filters or significantly customize the standard ones. With the help of this tool one can create a very popular ghost effect – when an object in a video has several contours of different colors and types; and even convert any 2D video fragment to 3D.

In response to ever-growing users’ demand, the newest version introduces a comprehensive mask tool with 10+ mask types available - an indispensable option for video editing professionals. A mask is designed to add a filter or effect to only one region of a video thus enabling to make awesome video effects like a video inserted into a text or into a shape, as well as to blur or pixelize a face, make a watermark much less visible, etc.

“This release, focused on graphics and visual effects, was largely awaited by our current users. But we also hope to interest new customers just embarking on the NLE adventure, and for this reason we keep on localizing the editor to foreign languages. The newest version will also speak Portuguese and Japanese.” – says Alexander Galkin, Project Manager.

Pricing and availability

VSDC Video Editor is absolutely free and available immediately for download to Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista/7/8/10.
