Pros Clear interface, lots of editing tools, supports many file types.
Cons Very unstable
Summary I have used version 9, 10, and now 11. With each new release they fine tune small details surprisingly well. However, they have failed to successfully address the problem of instability and repetitive program crashes and freezing. I would love to use this program if they could somehow make it stable enough to work on a clip more than 2 minutes in length. If you are working on a 30 second - 2 minute clip, it works great.
FYI, I am using a reasonably new HP-DV5000 duo-core laptop with 2 gig of RAM, a 120GB internal, and 300GB external drive. Many people suggest it is a hardware problem, but searching on the internet you will find other people with the same instability problems regardless of the computer they are using.
