About Singular Software Presto

Singular Software Presto incorporates sophisticated visual tracking and image-matching technology to simplify the entire editing process for creating presentation videos.

The resulting video can be used as is or further customized with Presto presentation templates. “When we support a new host or platform we like to add a little something extra to the feature set,” says Bruce Sharpe, CEO of Singular Software. “For Singular Software Presto for OS X we have added two special capabilities that will make our users happy. One is the ability to render video directly without the need to import it back into the NLE.
