Action happens all around us and the best we can do at times is capture it. Harness the fun, the energy, the love so we can share it with others. Smart phones make it easy to capture those moments, but why not take the time to make a video that’s as special as the day it was shot? Don’t simply throw the video on the web like it’s any ol’ thing. Add finesse. Add effects. Add a soundtrack and a title. But most importantly, add you. Show your best side with Movie Studio Platinum.
New! Two distinct editing modes
No matter which mode you decide to be in, when you’re finished editing you can deliver your movies any way you want. Upload them to YouTube™ or post them to Facebook™, burn your projects to Blu-ray Disc™ or author DVDs with custom menus and graphics. With its inviting interface, intuitive workflow, and impressive editing tools, Movie Studio 13 Platinum is the best way to make your movies shine before sharing them with the world.
