4 out of 5 eggsVideoStudio 7 Critique

Pros: VideoStudio is a fabulous program. I use it every day and I have for years. For the purpose of this critique, I will focus on three principle variants, Ulead VS8, VS12 and VS7. I could never get VS12 to work on high definition video so I eventually gave up trying. I presume VS7 does a better job and I will probably move to high def soon. My subsequent comments apply only to dvd video. VS8 was a stable program that rarely crashed. It always produced good quality video and dvds.
VS12 was mostly a major improvement. It provided a much more flexible and visually pleasing set of menus. Running on faster processors, the computation was dramatically improved. I should comment on the multi-trim video operation. This is very easy to use and intuitive. It is accurate to a single frame. This makes splices a joy to make. Perhaps the greatest improvement is in the performance of the multi-trim video window. Using relatively high performance hardware (at the time) the slider could be moved slowly and the video displayed apparently continuous (not jerky) motion. This is enormously helpful in facilitating efficient production and also quality control.
VS12 added two problems that didn't exist with VS8. Presumably, to facilitate computation speed, VS12 only does compression with power of 2 ffts. This can result in a dvd which is half empty. This was not the case with VS8 and results, of course, in a slightly poorer quality rendering. The difference is minor but is not a trade off I would have preferred. More significant is the algorithm VS12 uses to determine whether otherwise conforming video needs to be transcoded. This is a terrible algorithm and VS12 very often refuses to create a dvd without transcoding even though such transcoding is neither desired or necessary. VS8 dealt with this issue by not providing an algorithm. This was a much preferred solution since it allowed the user to develop his own algorithm.
VS12 has one additional feature that is extremely helpful. It extracts the principle parameters that were used to create the original data set. While VS12 doesn't provide all the potentially useful parameters and it sometimes gets some wrong, what it does provide is enormously helpful. It facilitates the processing of narrow or wide screen video from various sources without the operator always having to pay attention to the internal parameters to avoid unnecessary transcoding.
Despite it's shortcomings, VS12 is a very good program. There is one major flaw. VS7 will not run on Windows 7! This brings us to VS5, VS6 and VS7. These should probably have been labeled VS5, VS5.1 and VS5.2 . They run on Windows 7. That is their principle advantage. VS6 corrects some glaring errors and VS7 adds some minor tweaks.

Cons: In the implementation of VS7, some serious problems have arisen. Despite computing on a much more powerful processor with more memory and a higher end video card, VS7 performs worse than VS12 on some key operations. First is the multi-trim video window. If you take an incremental step or move the slider well into the video, it could be several seconds for the image to respond. Unlike the performance noted for VS12, with VS7, slowly moving the slider will not result in smoothly advancing video. At best, there will be a jerky movement, sometimes it takes seconds to catch up. Oddly, there have been a few video data sets that I have processed that scrolled smoothly. Why? I have no idea why most but not all video responds poorly. Somewhat analogously, the computation necessary to place chapter points seems painfully slow.
One improvement VS7 has over VS12 is in transcoding performance. It is fast and in general (data set dependent of course) of good quality. The power of 2 limit on ffts is gone and that is good.
There is one final problem with VS7 (VS6 and VS5 also) that can only be considered a bug, not a feature. Unlike VS12, VS7 does not extract the parameters that were used to create the original video. This makes it more difficult to avoiding unnecessary transcoding. Obviously, the program knows what parameters a video must have for it to be considered conforming. It just hides this information from the operator. The operator can determine these parameters from another source. Ideally, if he enters them correctly, the program will avoid transcoding. If one parameter is wrong, bingo-transcode. Does the program tell you which parameters are wrong? No, of course not. It turns out that if the video data set has a bff parameter and the operator correctly enters bff, the program changes it to tff. Later, when the program is checking for conforming video, it will never find conforming video since the video is bff but the parameter entered by the operator was changer to tff. It is impossible to stop the program from transcoding the data. Fortunately, there is a workaround. The trick is to first process the video using VS12. If VS12 runs to completion, problem solved, VS7 is not needed. If VS12 fails to finish because the data set is to large for VS12's flawed algorithm or for certain other reasons, save the project file and data and use VS7 to complete the computation. Through some unclear means, bff is correctly transmitted through the project file and will result in a video that has properly avoided transcoding. This is what I do and while it is a little annoying, it works.

Other Thoughts: It may be that VS7 has improved hd capability and that my criticisms have masked this. In any event, I like and use these programs and will continue to do so unless or until something better comes along.
