I was ecstatic to have a multimedia editing program comparible to that of Adobe Premier, and paying only of fraction of Premier's price. This was short lived however. I have been working on a 3D Animation for several months. The total length will be approximately 30 minutes. With my new VideoShop in hand, I began plugging in my movie segments, soundtrack, sound effects and voice overs. I will say that it had a wonderfully flexible timeline with an unlimited number of tracks (video/audio) available. But here is where my misfortune began. After adjusting all my clips on the timeline and playing a preview, I was very pleased. The time had come to compress it into a Quicktime movie. This is a lenghty process that took upwards to 45 minutes. Sitting back and thinking myself 'job well done' I played my clip back. ALL my audio after 1 minute into play was getting ahead of the video. Something was obviously amise. I called Strata (makers of VideoShop), the ONLY person handling tech support for this product admitted there is a bug with syncronization after compression. Then there was dead air on the phone as he waited without offering any advise with the problem. I pursued asking questions for a workaround. He pointed out a couple 'click here and there's', but nothing he suggested helped. I was getting the impression I was bothering him by the way he would just come up with extreme suggestions that were irrelevant to the problem. He even went as far to tell me to use another program.. Five days later, I had enough with Strata. I do NOT recomend this product if you plan on have long or well-syncronized movies. It has some nice features, but without the capability of it performing audio/video syncronization, it is not an multimedia editor..
