The best part of this news is that Nikon is working on software and I hope that means that Nikon Capture NX2 will soon be Nikon Capture NX3! The other good news is that for Nikon users this is free software and will now edit your videos.
Here are the details and you can download the software…HERE.
ViewNX 2 Primary New Functions
Revamped user interface
It is easy to switch between the three workspaces—Browser, GeoTag, Edit—with the simple click of a button on the Toolbar.
- Geo Tag workspace
- Browser workspace
- Edit workspace
Four background colors
The color of the workspace background can be selected from white, grey, dark grey and black, depending upon the brightness of images.
Changing palette display, thumbnail list display
As the Browser palette at the left of the ViewNX 2 window and the Edit palette at the right of the window can be displayed separately, working with ViewNX 2 is more efficient. What’s more, as unnecessary palettes can be hidden, the workspace can be maximized. In the Browser and Edit workspaces, the Thumbnail List option can also be selected to display image details with thumbnails.
New image editing functions
Save only the desired portion of a photo.
(2) Auto Red-Eye
Correct the “red-eye” effect that often occurs in photos of people taken with a flash.
Straighten photos taken at an angle.
(4) Auto Lateral Color Aberration
Correct color shift caused by chromatic aberration and reduce lateral chromatic aberration.
Movie editing functions
Use to specify and extract only the desired portion of a movie file.
Save movie frame as still image
Saves a specified movie frame as a JPEG image with the same pixel count as the original movie frame.
Improved print functions
(1) Printing date/time shot
Print the date images were captured over or below the images.
(2) Background color

Select the shooting information to be printed with images from a detailed set of options.
Text can be input for use as headers and/or footers with printing
