Pros I have owned three digial video cameras over the last couple of years. VideoStudio is the only program, and I have tried two other major competitors, that has recognised the files from all three cameras correctly and allowed me to utilize them the way the
Cons Corel's phone support is not the best. I have had good results getting answers to my questions on the User to User forum board online. The moderators there are knowledgable and reply quickly to questions.

Pros Corel has overcome the crash issues that occured in previous versions
Improved rendering process
Cons Should have more Hi-Def Menus for Blu-Ray discs
Summary Overall this is a powerful video editing tool

Summary I've been using Video Studio since version 5. This newest version is by far the easiest to use.The different choices , adjustable work space and ready to go templates, all make this an enjoyable program to use ,whether a novice or expert. As video technology moves forward, so does the program. The tools are in place to create Blu-Ray discs although I do not have the hardware to do so. Still , it is nice to experiment with that format and perfect it before making any 'coasters'. I have recommended this program to several people and they have followed my advice. They too ,were very pleased with the results. Click-Click-Done! Yeah, Corel has made it that easy.
Pros Easy to load (didn't have trouble installing) I have an older laptop, too. There is SO MUCH to do with this software, I will be dead by the time I use everything. I'm pretty much a DUNCE when it comes to editing software, and this was easy to use. I'm
Cons I gave it a 4.5 because it locked up a few times (in a 4 day period) SO SAVE YOUR PROJECT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!
Summary I can't afford Adobe, so this is the next best thing. Actually, I don't know if I would switch to Adobe or not. I already LOVE this editing software!! After my TV show last night, my boss called me and asked who edited my footage!! Sweet!!! And if you are an idiot, like me, you can use this software... It's pretty easy.

Beware of the software reviews from the companies. They are so lame, and pretty easy to spot...LOL
