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.
