Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've been using video editing software, not professionally, but for home use (grand kids, weddings...); and this is, by far, the best I've ever seen. The learning curve might be a little steeper than other software applications I've used in the past; but it is time well spent. In the two months or so that I've had this, I've produced 5 or 6 videos, made up primarily of slideshows, video clips, music, text overlays, video overlays and voice ... all in HD for burning on blu-ray. I haven't had a crash once. Other software I've used before would take hours and hours to render a video, more hours and hours to burn it ... only to see the whole project crash just a few minutes prior to completion. Does this sound familiar? Well, I have yet to see any of these problems with Sony Movie Studio. DVD Architect Studio that comes with the suite has to be one of the easiest application I've ever seen when it comes to building menus/chapters for your Video production. Again, nothing is evident at first, and the learning curve is a little steep; but once you're past the initial two or three days, this software is a real gem! I've also used SoundForge Audio Studio to extract the audio from video, and use bits and pieces of the audio in other productions with hilarious results! This is my first experience with a software like SoundForge; so no doubt that there are other products out there that can do the same. All I can say is that these three applications included in the suite work hand-in-hand without any hiccups.

I've been using Sony Vegas Movie Studio since version 9, and I have always been happy with it. In fact, I've been a huge proponent of Sony Vegas Movie Studio over all other editing software for it's innovative and time saving design. I have switched many editors from using Final Cut Pro to using Vegas Movie Studio because it was so much faster, yielded a better final rendering, and ran on a machine half the cost of a Mac.

Version 11 works flawlessly on all of my machines without crashing. I recently replaced my 5 year old dual core PC with a quad core i7 64 bit DELL Movie Studio series PC. Version 11 worked OK on the dual core with some stuttering in preview mode, but no other issues. Ver 11 works flawlessly on the new Dell, but it's only 32 bit software running on a 64 bit system. Version 12 is a 64 bit version of Vegas Movie Studio that should, in theory, work even faster than V.11. In version 12, when I hit the full screen preview mode, it completely crashes the computer to the blue screen of death. If you accidentally hit the full screen button instead of project setting button (located right next to it) it will go into an unrecoverable crash, it will reboot the machine, and you will lose your unsaved edits. It does the same thing on both of my new Dell machines (both the same i7 64 bit Dell Studio), so it isn't my equipment that is at fault. Version 11 still works fine on all of my machines, the old as well as the new Dells.

Stabilizing video clips used to be a one click affair in version 11. Not so in in version 12. Stabilizing is now a time wasting seven clicks per segment, and you can not run them in batch mode. In addition, the stabilizing effect is not as smooth or as good in version 12. It also takes much longer to apply to each clip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Royalty-free soundtracks are an underrated feature November 17, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
This product shines in a lot of ways as described the other comments. I just want to point out that the included royalty-free soundtracks are an underrated feature since you cannot upload a video to YouTube or Facebook that includes music from your favorite CD or MP3 download. Music can make the difference when the video you shot doesn't include any interesting dialogue or is saturated with annoying background noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality January 6, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
This is the third video software suite I have used and by far the best. It is faster and produces higher-quality output. Most important of all, it is completely stable and reliable. My first project was essentially jumping into the deep end of the pool: a nearly 2-hour 1080p blu-ray. Everything went smoothly and amazingly quickly, given that I was learning to use the software in the process. I have since completed other projects, all without a hitch.

The software is so inexpensive that the casual user could easily justify the cost. It is so powerful that professional results are possible. I would recommend it as the first choice for nearly anyone who does video editing. Only someone making money from their work would need to put out the cash for Vegas Pro.

Hint: Be sure to buy the suite in order to get the complete package, including the separate program required to put your work onto disc.

Hint 2: Download the manual for Vegas Pro 12 from Sony. It is nearly 600 pages of detailed info, most of which applies to Movie Studio.

Movie Studio 12 is the best consumer level video editing software ever. Value for money and functionality is unbeatable. The most appreciated and anticipated feature of Movie Studio 12 is 64 bit support. Red Giant Magic bullet quick looks plugin offers ready made 100 plus templates of different video effects to choose from (This is probably my favorite feature of version 12). With Movie Studio 12 you can go as far as your imagination goes and do wonders with your video footage. Buy the suit version instead of buying just Movie Studio version as the extras you get with suit are well worth the price. Sound forge audio studio is excellent audio editing software you only get with suit version. New blue Fx video effects and magic bullet quick looks plug-in are only part of the suit version. I have already made some beautiful movies on our recent vacation trips. Thanks to the Movie Studio 12, I am the Director of my home movies...
