Software Update: HandyShare 8.1 for Mac and Windows

The latest update for Zoom’s free HandyShare software offers new and improved features that make it simple to edit audio and video from all Zoom Handy Video Recorders, like the Q8, Q4n, and Q2n.

Compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems, HandyShare 8.1 has received a complete makeover with a new intuitive interface and an enhanced video/audio engine.

HandyShare now includes real-time video and audio previews, giving you the ability to review your edits before finalizing your videos. You can toggle between Trim and Effects modes without saving, as well as preview audio waveforms for quick and efficient editing. A variety of audio effects and enhancements like Reverb and Mastering are also available to you from within the software.

For easy access to your audio and video files, HandyShare now has a Library feature that lets you view all your files within the app, no matter where they’re stored on your computer. This feature also makes it simple to export files, reference them for future use, and organize them into folders or playlists. Simply drag and drop your files straight to YouTube’s upload screen for one-step uploading.
