  • Create slides and overlays: Create graphic slides and overlays such as lower thirds, intro cards and credits 
  • Edit audio: Edit and equalise audio from video or straight audio for podcasts 
  • Import/Export Media: Import any video clip you have from your computer and export your new video ready for upload to your media repository 
  • Highlight your cursor within screen capture: When you are recording your screen, you can highlight your cursor so the recording shows where and when you click on the page. 
  • Drag and Drop to edit:  Edit and re-arrange your video files by dragging them to where you want them within the video editor
