Thinkbox Software Launches Cinelab
Thinkbox Software launched Cinelab, a new video-editing app for Windows 8 devices. Cinelab delivers simple, on-the-go video editing capabilities directly from any supported tablet, mobile device or desktop computer.
Inspired by the new Windows user interface, Thinkbox founder Chris Bond set out to design an easy-to-use editing app that would enable people of any skill level to trim and cut together clips, and share them directly from Windows 8 devices. Using a very simple touch interface, users can rearrange clips by moving them around on screen, tap them to play, and shorten the length by moving handles on a bar directly beneath the clip. Rearranged and trimmed clip sequences can be shared via SkyDrive and email.
The developers of Cinelab have been working in professional visual effects for many years, and drew on their own experience with industry-leading editing tools from the most elementary to the highest end, to bring a great user experience to Windows 8 customers.
A free version of Cinelab is available through the Windows Store, allowing customers to edit and share their videos; extended features are available via an upgrade through the Windows Store.
