I have used VideoStudio 7 for many years, to edit and produce DVDs, often for weddings, in standard definition, typically around an hour of video. All I need is the ability to cut, resequence clips, add music and the occasional title, then burn a disc with a menu. Finally I bought a new camera, for High Definition, so I had to upgrade to VideoStudio Pro3 .... What a horror. It cannot download from my camera's USB properly (Panasonic HDC-SD700 ) so I use Panasonic's application to do that (it works well, and is extremely fast), then import the video files. But the so-called media organiser is a ridiculous affair, which populates itself with a mind of its own. Eventually you can fight it and start editing. You need to save your project every 5 minutes since the program crashes so frequently. The preview was particularly flakey, even though I have a nice new Dell vostro 1520 with dual core P8700 2.53GHz and 3Gb RAM, running XP. Downloading the patches from corel's website improved it a bit, but not completely.

When the project is finished the share option tries to transfer the project into the now integrated MovieFactory- but this just hangs indefinitely and you have to shut everything down. Eventually I settled for making a DVD video file (mpg standard definition) and just importing it into the Factory - which was OK until I tried to change the awful pre-set Title music to my own mp3 file. There is a button for allegedly doing this, and it came up with a blank media screen and embryonic Desktop/My Computer search tree - but clicking on My Computer to get at my music has no effect whatsoever - the thing just does not navigate. You cannot even delete the horrid sound they give you. Oh dear, ULEAD VideoStudio 7 was a joy to use by any comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars great editing suite 24 Feb. 2010
By Steveo
Verified Purchase
I downloaded the trial version of video studio pro x3 after trying 4 other top video editing programs, Video studio pro X3 was by far the best. I used it for about a week and not once did the program crash, I am running it on my Dell studio XPS laptop 2.8 core2 duo 4 gig ddr3 ram Ati 4670 with 1 gig ram on board, I would say you need quite a powerful system to run this program without problems, It's got some great effects transitions and sound tracks built in, I have found it very easy to use and understand, it also has a great dvd factory built in so you can create some professional looking dvd's/blu ray disc's. I recomend this great program well done Corel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Previous one !! 12 Mar. 2010
I was excited to own this new version of what was 'Ulead Videostudio'. Since the takeover by Corel this product seemed to be going in the right direction especially with its last incarnation-Videostudio Pro X2. But with this new release, it seems to be a case of one step forward and two back. First the layout has been really dulled down, with just a blackened frame and very little else, as opposed to the pleasing to the eye silvery grey of Pro X2. The buttons and markers are less bold. The colour-scheme of the video and sound blocks have been changed. It seems as if they are trying to make it look like a Magix layout. It runs OK, but really sucks memory and even my very high-speed quad core had an occasional stall during operation. The Pro X2 runs much smoother than this one. But surely the biggest flaw here is the fact that you can no longer create custom MPEG-2 profiles. This is a real pain. They make you do with a couple of HDV pre-sets which create huge files. The previous Pro X2 did allow you to create any custom MPEG-2 file you want...including HD 720p and 1080p. Why take this away? So my advice? Get the 'Videostudio Pro X2 Ultimate' instead. It is a far better software and runs much smoother, with more render options. Sorry Corel...this new one just ain't up to the job!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Video editing is a power hungry process. No matter what spec your PC, video editing is likely to be the toughest thing you ask it to do in most domestic setups.

My PC is a reasonable spec: 64 x2 dual core processor, 4GB RAM, 1tb 7200 HDD with 16MB cache. Even with this setup, my PC, according to the resources monitor, was working hard the whole time this application was running. If you have a lower spec machine, you should be aware that input response and task completion will not be instantaneous.

I was very much looking forward to using this software because it claims to be quicker and easier to use than others. I am not a video hobbyist. I would love to be able to create a cinematic work of art with clever editing and sound mixing, but my ambitions are way lower than that. A few simple titles, nice transitions between scenes and maybe a touch of sound mixed in. To date, I have bought and trialled numerous editors and all of them have left me with either failed projects or a sore head (thanks to the complexity). It was a shock and shame that the only editor I was able to use was the freely bundled one which comes with MS Windows.

The good news on VideoStudio Pro X3 is that there are numerous nice "newbie" features which aim to make life simpler for the likes of me. The interface is pretty decent, too.

The bad news is that the editing is no quicker than other options. I accept that the final rendering is going to take a long time, but some of the "nice features" I mentioned are not fully delivered. Great ideas, but they don't quite work yet. Maybe in X4.

Compared to all the other suites I have used, though - a pretty good effort if you want more features than the MS freebie.
