Edits AVCHD like a dream.,
This review is from: NERO 12 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Everything your read in the other reviews is true. It connects to the internet every-so-often to validate itself, and if you work offline like I do, that can be a problem. But if you can accept that, it does everything you want the program to do and more.
But the most amazing thing about this suite is the Nero Video editing program, which edits AVCHD files, without any need of converting or rendering. You can just drag the file from your video camera directly into the program itself and edit it with zero pixelation or stalling, it runs super smoothly. I have edited about thirty (small) videos so far and it has handled them all perfectly without crashing.
As a video editing program, it has ALL the main features that Premier has, like key framing effects, colour correcting, multiple video and audio tracks, picture-in-picture, slow motion and speed-up, transitions etc. in fact it has officially replaced itself as my editing software of choice. Its menu design is very user friendly and you will learn where everything is very quickly.
Its only negative, is that some of the transitions and theme packages are an additional purchase, which is highly annoying when you buy a package like this, at its full price only to find it doesn't include everything. Then its even more annoying to find those add-ons are no-longer available to buy. But they still show in the menus, meaning they just get in the way. If you can work around those minor issues, this has been the ONLY software I have ever used that could handle AVCHD files, and gave me full editing capabilities.
I recommend it, especially as a video editing software program, its still a fraction of the price of its competition and has many other features thrown in there as well.
