4.0 out of 5 stars A good product - if you are prepared to spend time with it, 11 Mar 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Movie Studio HD: Platinum 12 (PC) (DVD-ROM)
After using Vegas Movie studio 10 I bought Movie Studio 12 as a 64 bit program. The interface is friendly and if you are used to the previous editions, it is easy to come to grips with the new one. It is faster than the 32bit program, but it also freezes when the memory is depleted. With 8 GB Ram the limit would be about 30 clips and 20 mins of video at a time. A point of criticism is the hassle to stabilize a video. Previously it was straight forward - just right-click on the event in the time-line. Now the procedure has changed - you have to add a 'media fx' process to the clip itself. It requirs more clicks than before. My greatest frustration was the fact that it made a mess of interlaced videos like the m2t videos from DV handicams. In stead of stabilizing a video, it created an earthquake effect. However, I think I have solved the problem: Right-click on the exe file and tick compatibility - I made it compatible with Windows 7. Now it works - at least as well as previous versions did.

Mr Bullet says:
Use a gadget like All CPU meter, it will show you the RAM used and pagefile % besides cores usage and temps.
If this 12th edition doesn't clear the virtual addresses like 11th than is no use of 64 bit anyway or maybe it's not 64 bit as they say.
I never had problems with movie studio 11 platinum with my 8GB of ram and page file set to 0. But of course I might use it shorter times than you and less operations /session.
My advice is to get out of the application after you save your work and get in again or sometimes alt TAB will do the trick and if you have the All CPU core as gadget than you'll see if alt TAB cleared or not the ram and page file.
I had this frozen stuff with a game long time ago Empire Total War, the only thing that help was to get out of the application.Another game with same problem was enough to alt tab it to avoid the freeze.
However my setup of 2x HDD in raid 0 where is the source of the clips I use (around 169/mbs... used to be 231 some time ago) not much but better than a single HDD.Sometimes not few but many Hdd tend to froze in some peak demands of the application and I think we establish that virtual address problem doesn't bring this application on the shelf of excellence.
Hope I could help
