Users simply drag & drop photos or videos into the drop zone and their files will load automatically with a pre-designed movie theme inside of Nero Video. Nero Start is available for all Nero Suite and standalone products and also includes access to Nero KnowHow PLUS.

NEW in Nero DuplicateManager Photo: Find & Remove ‘Similar Images’

Many users have a whole bunch of similar images sitting on their PC, be it due to photo editing, HDR series shots, resizing, format conversion, and more. It is so easy to get lost in one’s photo archive that has heaped up on the PC over years. This is where the brand new feature ‘find & remove similar images’ in Nero DuplicateManager Photo comes into place. The new function finds similar images and automatically sorts it into categories of similarity types: “Places, Series, Motive, Resized, Format, Other “. This way, users get a fast and comfortable overview of their similar images and can easily decide which ones to delete and which ones to keep. Getting their duplicate images and similar images cleaned up, users will gain more storage space on their PCs and at the same will have Nero MediaHome as their central media archive cleaned automatically, too.

After conversion, the files can be handed over to video editing or authoring projects in Nero Video. Thanks to this new pre-conversion function in Nero Recode the time needed for rendering and burning a videodisc in Nero Video can be drastically reduced by utilizing Nero SmartEncoding.  The new Disc-compatible profiles are also beneficial for users that want to utilize 4K source video for editing and exporting to Full HD or Blu-ray Discs™ but lack a more powerful editing system.
