5 out of 5 eggsSony Plt 12

Pros: I have been using Version 6 for several years on my old XP and It was the best. Now I'm using the latest on my new Haswell build and again it is without a doubt the best. Easy install, easy of use, many features everything you need for editing. Come with Architech 5. Never crashes like others.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Do not hesitant on buying this program you will not regret it. Its fun to use and addictive. Drop video clips on timeline, click project properties, click match video, point to where your clip is and it sets the correct format for you. Click Save as, point to where you are going to save your projects and give it a name and start having fun.Tip, before you start create folders on your hard drive. Main folder 'sony folders', in that folder create the following folders, Arch burn,Arch projects, Audio, Capture, Movie, Pre-render, Project still pic. You wil understand when you begin using this program. Render using 'Main Concept' most likey widescreen. Enjoy Thanks newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsSony Movie Platinum 12

Pros: First I was able to download the trial version to try it. It’s a full featured trial version. I have used Adobe Premier before and this was similar but way easier to use. The big difference was the "Show me how" feature. It will walk you thru what you need done. As you do it too. It’s like someone who knows standing there showing how. Amassing. I jsut started useing the trial version and when the retail version showed up I just put in the serial # and thats it

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: For the price you cant go wrong

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: With the included DVD Architect 5 it renders and burns menu based BluRay.

Cons: The UI is less pleasing to the eye than the one that Vegas 9 Pro provided, and it takes from 22-26+ hours for a 1920x1080 render for bluray on a 6-core machine (the BD renders appear to be single threaded, a 1 or 2-core machine would likely be faster). Although by my reading of bluray standards indicates support for 1440x1080 29.97i I'm unable to find a way to get it accepted by the software, it invariably seems to force one to chose either a different framerate or to pillarbox to 1920x1080.

Other Thoughts: I avoided Cyberlink due to other reviewers difficulties with the software installs, I'm sorry I did as power director seems to have a good reputation. I only bought this product for the DVD architect component, it forced me to educate myself on alternative methods and although somewhat complex, I am now using only free software to render and burn blu-ray, it is far faster with equivalent or better results. If the product was returnable I'd return it, it's of no use to me. I read on the web there are ways to reduce the render time by rendering from movie studio "just so", but for all the gyrations required I'll use other methods. I feel like I've "been had" by Sony with respect to this product. The product will get a video onto a BD with a menu, and if time is of no concern it is adequate to that task.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: *A LOT* of editing tools

Better speed / GPU acceleration compared to the previous version. OpenCL support

The 64-bit app can use more than 4GB RAM

Cons: A minor glitch (see below)

GUI is practical but can be boring if you are used to artistic or decorated look - not that I personally care.

Though output speed has been improved from its predecessor, Vegas Movie Studio 11, this software still doesn't use all available CPU and GPU powers like Power Director does in outputting.

Other Thoughts: In case someone else gets frustrated with this, the glitch is that sometimes when you try to output the final product after joining clips in the timeline, only one of the clips gets converted. The issue goes away after I clear the temp files for Movie Studio, save the project and reopen the app, and output. Hope Sony will release a fix soon.

Other than that minor annoyance, I am very happy with this software as I have been with the previous Movie Studio's. What I want more than antyhing else is varieties of editiing features / tools, and this one has got them. Compared to other similary price "consumer" softwares, this one stands out for letting me customize and customize pricesely everything I do in it. This time, the license ended up being free for me with a combination of a NewEgg discount, Sony's mail-in-rebates for the holiday season and competitor software upgrade. But I would have paid $100 and still be happy with my purchase.
