5.0 out of 5 stars Superior Program to Pro X3 and pro X2 - Buy!, 14 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VideoStudio Pro X4 Ultimate (PC) (CD-ROM)
Over the years I have bought many programs from Ulead - which then became part of Corel. I think my first video editing program was Ulead 8. We are now on to Corel VideoStudio X4 - some 6 versions later. I have to say I have had my ups and down with them. X3 was particularly a very bad program...full of bugs and so slow, it almost made editing a video a disaster...so time consuming...error after error. I eventually went back to X2.

X4 is a much improved program...and its very very fast. Having said that I do have a core i7 processer and 8GB ram.

Installation is easy and takes around 5 mins. Once I had installed the program, there was a service pack update followed by a number of free updates with templates. Having used the program in one form or another for years, I do now find the program easy to use. Essentially there are three steps, import, edit and share. The program is intuitive but you still have to understand a little around what you are doing. There are some great free video tutorials built in to the program, so if you have never done this before, these are very useful. The pack also has a free paper user guide - so once again, if you are stuck, this is essential reading. I was up and running in no time. You can import from a number of sources, video, DVD, TV and so on. Once you have imported the footage, you move on to the editing suite where you have a whole array of tools you can use. Finally you share your masterpiece through DVD, email, flickr, and so on.

The program does state you can use this to convert video from 2D to 3D. I'm not so sure. I have a 3D TV and 3D DVD/Blu ray player. Yes, the program did convert my video in to 3D, but the picture wasn't cracking and almost slightly blurred. However, the 3D for me is a bonus to the program, not essential.

Overall, whether you are a first timer or experienced video editor, I think this program has sufficient capabilities and tools to meet your needs. Highly recommended.
