I was looking for a quick and easy editing suite that would give me the flexibility for some creativity but that wouldn't bog me down in the details.
I shopped around a bit and read some reviews and decided on the Corel VideoStudio product.
Overall I have been happy with the product. I've found it quiet intuitive and pretty easy to find my way around.
Here are the things I really like about the product:
- Price - At $70 you can't complain.
- Audio level editing - very intuitive and flexible
- Exporting - It has a ton of export functions
- The library doesn't let you add descriptions for the video clips. This would have been very helpful given the hundreds of clips that I had for this project.
- The story board doesn't let you leave blank spaces in the main video line. This was a serious problem for me in the project since I needed to customize 50 different copies of the same video.
- The transition effects are cheesy.
- The "Painting Creator" is pretty well useless.
