So far so good,
This review is from: Corel VideoStudio 11 Plus (CD-ROM)
I am currently using the free trial version of VisualStudio 11 Plus and no problems so far. With my first Sony DVD cam I got passable free software called ImageMixer. It was not bad, wasn't going to set the world on fire but it did an ok job. My Sony camera got nicked at that joke airport known as Heathrow; it was not in the smashed baggage that was returned to me 3 days after I had landed. Insurance paid out a paltry sum but I did get another Sony DVD VidCam. The editing software that came with this new Vidcam was garbage, a complete waste of time and space. I could not get my new Sony cam to work with ImageMixer so I thought I would try VideoStudio 11 plus.
Nice interface, very intuitive if you have a bit of experience with video editing software. Burned a DVD with no problems, made it work hard on the capture by trying to get it to load DVD files that were unfinalised. It did not fall over, just gave sensible error messages. Nice range of effects and audio control, titles and colours very easy to add and everything is consistently laid out.
The software installed quickly and loads quickly. It also shuts down without drama or fuss. I am running it on a 2.66 Pentium with a gig of ram and OS XP Service pack 2. I have not ventured down Vista avenue yet.
So with a reasonably spec'd computer running XP, decent amount of ram, and DVD VidCams everything seems to work just fine. So far I am very pleased and hope I will remain so. I wish the product was a bit cheaper but if it stays stable I will purchase.
