I read the mixed bag of reviews for this product, but went for it anyway because the market leaders Adobe Premiere & Pinnacle Studio showed about the same love/hate ratio, even at a higher price, and VS9 sounded like a good product for the first-time user.
At first I thought I'd made a mistake, when I tried my first capture and my video source, a Panasonic NV MX7 camcorder connected by firewire, was not recognised.
BUT!! My e-mail to the Ulead customer service website was answered within 48 hours, with a well-structured list of understandable setup instructions, signed by name by the Ulead agent. It worked first time and I have had no trouble with capture since.
VS9's user interface is as dummy-friendly as I had hoped, and the manual supplied in book form is easy to follow, in huge contrast to the terrible manual on a Panasonic DVD recorder, that I bought with the money I saved on VS9.
I particularly like the audio editing, which lets me keep the original soundtrack, or kill it, or play it at changing volume levels by means of "rubber-banding", while I add my own voiceover and/or background music.
VS9's features definitely live up to their billing on the packaging. Its options may be too limited for the pros, but if what you want is to produce decent video and/or still picture shows out of your collection of scattered DV clips, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Video Studio 9 29 Dec 2005
Verified Purchase
The software supplied with my camcorder was basic, so I downloaded the free 30 Day Full Demo of the Ulead Videostudio 9 Software and found it was stable and a powerful tool. I purchased the full version from Amazon.On start up you get three options DV to DVD Wizard, transfers your camcorder footage straight to DVD or CD. Movie Wizard which will import your DV and allow you to use templates to make your film. the advanced Studio Editor.This caters for all levels of editing experience. In advanced once I have captured the video to hard drive, I was able to set up one stream with video, overdub on another track, add titles and effects to the film, ie. B&W, Sepia, Psychadelic etc, lay down a music track (MP3, WMA, MIDI etc), import photos (JPG,GIF, BMP, TIFF) and separate the camcorder audio from the video track, this was useful for a speech to continue whilst showing images other than the speaker.Other useful features included Video on Video, the ability to change the speed of playback (Slow Motion, High Speed) and make parts of the movie run backwards.There's plenty of transition effects to cover most requirements, overlays are supported, i.e. Green background stuff. You can clean up audio, add DVD menus, add sub menus and motion menus also. Good selections of tools help add a professional finish to your creation. I've used this on my Honeymoon, Stag and Wedding videos.One thing to note, if your final product resolution is different to when you captured the footage, it has to convert very video frame, so a 120 minute video could take up to 8 hours to rende, with some tweaking that can be reduced to a couple of hours.Other nice tweaks include, adding Flash Movie files (SWF) to your movies/menus, It has a built in photo album feature for pictures from your digital camera/scans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relief pill for ex-Pinnacle users 13 April 2006
After finally sodding Pinnacle Studio after years of using it, I found Videostudio. Now, I only downloaded the trial, so I do not yet know what the full version is like, but it is a fantastic piece of kit, and unlike Pinnacle, it runs! Another good point is that you can take video from DVDs and add them to a project, which I was very impressed by. The only downside is that it can only import from ripped DVD files (that HAS to be called "VIDEO_TS" or it will not class it as DVD Video Files) or writable discs, and that DVD Menu designs are limited. (Remember, I'm using the trial version!)

Finally, I was very impressed by the fact you can burn over two hours of video onto a single layer DVD (depending on MPEG settings) and does not drop in quality at all. No need for Dual Layer discs.

Now, i've just got to find out what I'm missing out on from the purchased version..

5.0 out of 5 stars VS9 is better all round 4 Sep 2005
I see from the other reviews on here a lot of people complain about the stabilty of VS9, I personally have had no serious problems, certainly no more than I have with any other windows based program. However I do know many people have had the download version and had nothing but grief, mine was the proper box version.
As for VS9 to me it performs better than VS8, its interface seems even easier to use than it was before. They have added a few new video filters and new effects with the addition of the flashback effects which are perfect for wedding and romantic video's
The simplest to use yet the most powerful new features are the chroma key and reverse video.
The chroma key allows you to overlay any picture on a new background and make parts transparent, I have just used this to great effect on a friends wedding video.
However one of the most useful features I have found is the slide show generator which does everything for you automatically then even puts the production into your project allowing you to tweek it and perfect it without the hassle of producing it from scratch. This is ideal for me as I like to finish my wedding videos with a slide show of stills from the video. This feature has saved me hours of work and given me a much more professional look to my productions.
Overall I am very happy with VS9, it will be interesting to see what VS10 will offer above this version
