ACD Systems, makers of the popular (and long-running) ACDSee imaging software have announced that they’re making the move to video with their new Luxea video editing software. Their goal, they say, is to simplify the video editing process to save time and allow users to focus on the content, and not the editing.
Luxea supports resolutions up to 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) and frame rates up to 60 frames per second. you can also mix videos with still images and add audio tracks, text, transitions, effects, animations, filters and even do some chroma-keying if you ever fancied playing around with green screen.
A number of presets are also included in the app for social media sizes, allowing you to edit vertical straight for TikTok and Snapchat or go square for Instagram. You can also set your own custom dimensions, too, if you wish, for things like Facebook page cover videos.
Various filters are included to let you adjust the usual settings like white balance, vibrance, vignettes, black and white conversions (with actual RGB sliders), as well as more advanced effects like LUT support. It features a range of clip transitions, and you can mouse over each one to preview what it looks like. All of them are very easy to access, apply and then edit through the Properties tab.
Inside the Luxea app itself, there’s an audio recorder, allowing you to record your own voiceovers to add to your videos. So, you don’t need to record a whole separate video of you reciting your script, you can do it right within the app. Also included in the installation is a screen recorder app, too, which can take advantage of your webcam – very handy for YouTube tutorial creators!
Luxea Video Editor is available to buy now with a lifetime perpetual license for $79.99. Annual subscriptions are also available, depending on your needs at $29.99/yr for an Individual Plan or $89/yr for the Home Plan which includes a whole bunch of extras.
