Real movies. Polished, tightly edited movies that tell your story with perfectly-timed movement, close-ups, even music that feels just right in every frame. You can do this and more using the all-new muvee Reveal. In minutes, muvee Reveal takes your video, photos and music and automatically edits them to make the movies you always wanted to make."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1216325803.usr1.jpg" border="0" /></p><p>The people at muvee told me they were working on something new, and it looks like this is it! Reveal looks to be what AutoProducer had been inching towards for a few versions now: a full-featured video editing suite, but with the muvee twist of auto-producing as the main method of assembling your videos. Manual controls include automatic brightness, color correction, rotate image, red eye reduction, focusing in on specific details, image sequence, and more. They've also added support for 720p and 1080p HD video, and video output in WMV, WMV-HD, QUICKTIME, MPEG4, H.264, MPEG2, MPEG1, AVI, 3GPP. Video input formats are WMV, Quicktime, MPEG4, H.264, MPEG2, MPEG1, DV-AVI, 3GPP, AVCHD, HDV. Nice to see AVCHD in that list since so many HD cameras not shoot in that format. <MORE /></p><p>I hope, more than anything else that they've added, that they've improved the speed and stability of the software. muvee autoProducer has always been an impressive piece of software from a conceptual point of view, but with every version it got slower and more unstable - the recent version has crashed on me more times than I care to remember, and even on powerful hardware it was extremely sluggish. Speed and stability are more important than any one single new feature. It's also worth noting that autoProducer is no longer being sold - Reveal completely replaces it.

You can <a href="http://www.muvee.com/en/products/reveal/" target="_blank">download a 15 day free trial of Reveal</a>, or you can purchase it for $99 USD.</p>
