read our review - we apologize but hate it so much we posted this interrupt on many of our pages
We Love it - highly recommended. We needed a productive editor when we found Adobe Elements Premiere 8 to be a dog and Corel VideoStudio Pro is it. (see our Adobe Elements 8 Review). We have not reviewed Adobe Elements 9 or Adobe Premiere 9. Our take, from other reviewers, is that it is not a worthy upgrade from version 8 nor does version 9 improve in performance.
Our opinion here also applies to Corel Video Studio Pro 12. The functionality is similar but the performance and interface is improved in VideoStudio X4. We hated version X3 but you can see an archive of the review here.
VideoStudio Pro was purchased from Ulead in about 2008. The product has been improved since.
Its a good consumer value, we recommend it. This product is superior and much more user friendly than Adobe Premiere Elements
Note: We received a remark from a registered user that there may be known compatibility issues with Video Studio X3 and Core i7. We do not know if the Core i7 compatibility is fixed in version X4 . Please do your research before you buy.
Things we LIKE about Corel VideoStudio X4 :
Things we DO NOT like about Corel Video Studio Pro X4 (VideoStudio 14):
- We love it for its simplicity
- Video Studio 14 getting a new video started, last seen in Video Studio 12, is still missing
- However, the full edit version is much more productive making the easy edit mode almost moot
