Video Edit SDK .Net

The VisioForge Video Edit SDK .Net allows programmers to integrate advanced video editing and processing capabilities into their software applications. With this SDK, you can create custom movies by combining audio and video files, applying various effects, and smoothly transitioning between tracks. The SDK provides robust support for popular video formats, including MP4, WebM, AVI, WMV, Matroska, MPEG-1/2/4, and others. It also offers the flexibility to work with additional file formats using third-party DirectShow filters. Moreover, you can export audio in the most popular formats, including MP3, AAC/M4A, OGG Vorbis, Windows Media Audio, OPUS, Speex, and WAV, adding versatility to your multimedia projects.

The SDK provides compatibility with video, audio, and image files as input sources and allows you to include images from memory. It also provides access to over 20 different output file formats. You can stream the output over a network or send it to a Blackmagic card for further processing. This range of options and configurations ensures developers can efficiently handle multimedia content.


The SDK includes a timeline feature that enables creating and managing multiple video and audio tracks. Within these tracks, you can insert video and audio fragments. Then, following the decoding phase, the data becomes ready for processing and compression before being written to a file. This structured workflow facilitates efficient multimedia content handling within your application.

The SDK ensures robust compatibility with many popular video, audio, and image file formats and codecs, including MP4, WebM, AVI, WMV, MPEG-TS, MP3, AAC, JPEG, GIF, and PNG. Furthermore, developers can use their custom DirectShow filters for encoding, offering enhanced flexibility and customization options for multimedia processing.


The SDK facilitates the integration of SMPTE-compliant transitions between videos to create smooth, professional-looking transitions. It also enables adding text, images, or GIF logos to your content. Developers can adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, or hue to fine-tune the visual aspects. Furthermore, the SDK supports various operations such as resizing, cropping, and rotating, affording precise control over the video's appearance.

Add an equalizer to your audio processing capabilities with the SDK. This allows you to fine-tune audio frequencies for optimal sound quality. You can also normalize audio levels, increase volume, or enhance bass frequencies to achieve the desired output. The SDK also offers a wide range of other audio effects.
