Terence Swee, muvee's founder and CEO, said, "Worldwide digital camera sales grew 14% in 20061, and you hardly come across a mobile phone that doesn't have a camera in it. It's obvious that a growing number of people across all age groups are taking a lot more pictures and short video clips everywhere they go. muveeNow presents our core automatic video and slideshow creation capabilities in a remarkably simple, barrier-free interface that makes it even easier for them to instantly turn this content into personalized, emotionally engaging productions that are ready to share on DVD, via email, or online on a blog or video-hosting site."
In 3 steps, users select their pictures and video clips, add in a track of their own music and choose a video editing style from the collection of 8 styles that are included with the software. muveeNow then automatically generates a finished production by cutting highlights of the user's footage to the beat of the music, with synchronized visual effects based on the chosen style. Users can also download over 100 additional plug-in styles themed for different occasions from muvee's styleLabs at http://www.muvee.com/stylelabs. muvees can be previewed in full-screen, instantly remade using different media and styles, and saved in a variety of popular formats for computer playback, email, web sharing and DVD burning. muveeNow also incorporates Athentech's Perfectly Clear(R) image correction technology for automatic photo touch-ups such as red-eye correction, photo enhancement and noise removal.
