VideoStudio 7 Critique
This review is from: Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X7
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.
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.
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.
