VideoStudio 4.0

Ulead VideoStudio is a video editing application. VideoStudio can be used to create videos for the web or for use on CD as well as to produce videos to send back out to tape. This software is used to take captured video clips and other media, including still images, titles, audio clips and assemble them into a final movie. The user uses a timeline to assemble the clips and media in the order they wish. After the media has been placed on the timeline, the user can select transitions to define how each clip "transitions" from one clip to the next one. Transitions can include fade outs, wipes, dissolves, or even more sophisticated effects such as burns, where the video appears to "burn" through the middle to reveal the next video clip below. After the clips and transitions have been selected, VideoStudio renders the final video, assembling all of the media into a single integrated video. The application uses a beta version of the LIGOS lsxprem DLL v1.3.0.10, which is optimized for the Pentium 4 processor. The transitions and resize functions were also Pentium 4 processor optimized.

The script for VideoStudio starts the application, opens an MPEG-2 NTSC quality video project containing four AVI video clips and three transition effects and renders the clips and effects into a final movie. The metric used to measure this application is the time it takes to run through the entire task from starting the application to finishing and closing the application. 

GoMotion Video Decoder

The Ligos GoMotion Video Decoder is available in four versions, the first a pure C implementation, the second an Intel Pentium(R) II MMX optimized version, the third a Pentium III SSE optimized version and the fourth a version optimized for SSE2 on the Intel Pentium 4 processor. The version used for the processor in use is determined by querying the compatibility with feature sets for MMX, SSE or SSE2. Failing compatability with any of those, the tool defaults to the C implementation.

The Ligos GoMotion Video Decoder provides a fast, flexible, easy-to-use infrastructure to support emerging applications built on top of MPEG. The application returns timing information indicating both decompression performance and total decoding plus rendering time. This particular player requires graphics cards based nVidia's GeForce or GeForce2 chipset and at least DirectDraw 6.0. The performance metric is the frames/second used to display the video.
