5.0 out of 5 stars Compared to PowerDirector V12 April 12, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I admit to being a big fan of Cyberlink PowerDirector 12(PD) since version 8 or 9. In that time they have done a great job resolving stability issues, making it much faster (thanks in part to 64-bit support), and adding tons of features. (No, I haven't forgotten about the product I'm reviewing...) I could continue to use that fine program in complacent happiness.

Then along came an opportunity to use the latest version of Corel Video Studio and it was like a breath of fresh air. The first thing I noticed was that some features I never used in PD were missing. Then again, I never used them. Then when I started to use this program I found that manipulating tracks, titles, transitions, and other features that are more commonly used were even easier, quicker, and more intuitive (even though I've been working with PD for years and this program for about a month. Time to render is also much quicker.

Here are some examples. Both programs allow you to insert subtitles. That is useful, for example, if you want to do up yet another Hitler Rant. However, Corel is "nice enough" to mark the start and stop of each audio section, which greatly simplifies inserting the subtitles. Or, let's say you frequently submit videos to an online store as part of reviews you like to write. Both programs provide a multitude of options for selecting output format and quality. However, that online store, despite having vast compute and storage resources, still limits video submissions to 100MB. (Hey, I feel a Hitler Rant coming on...

2.0 out of 5 stars Try Before You Buy! July 21, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Disc
WARNING! Before you purchase this program, please download a 30 day free trial (fully functional) version of it from Corel's website. Although the editing, transition and text features on it are superb, it kept crashing my new computer. And I have plenty of RAM, (12 GB) a very powerful Intel processor and more hard-disk space than I'll ever need. I had ordered it from Amazon a couple of days ago, but smartly decided to download the trial version, too. It does NOT work for me. Plus, when it crashes with a Windows error "A problem has caused this program to stop working," you also LOSE all your work, as it does not back up your work automatically as word processors do. If it works for you, go for it. But try it first before buying. You might save yourself a big headache and perhaps money, too. Fortunately, I was able to cancel my Amazon order.

This is extremely disappointing, because, of all the video editing software I have used, Corel is my favorite. It is very user-friendly, has outstanding effects, and the end product is superb. I used a version of it that came with Corel Word Perfect Office 6, and it never crashed. That was on a 32 bit Windows 7 Pro machine that's about 6 years old. Why the latest version should repeatedly crash on a new computer using Windows 8 64 bit is, to me, inexplicable. The older version I have from the Word Perfect suite doesn't work with Windows 8, or I'd use that one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Good, Some Warts April 1, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I started my video editing with VS x4, and have been using x5 for a while. It’s not perfect, but I find it is easy to use and pretty reliable. In this review, I’ll talk about x7 and the advantages it has over x5.

Starting with the installation. Oddly, there is no user manual in the box, nor is there an electronic version on the 2 DVDs. The only documentation is a half-sheet introduction, printed double-side but in 5 languages. To get the manual, you have to type in the website url and download it. It really should have been included on a DVD.

Before installing, you *MUST* remove any earlier versions of VS. Otherwise, the “.vsp” file extension remains associated with your old version, so if you double-click on the file, the old version starts up. I uninstalled x5, and then the extension had no association, and there was no way to associate it with x7. I had to uninstall, and re-install, to get things working.

Once you finish installing, there is a second DVD with “Extra Content”: a “Special FX Pack” with 7 programs. Three of these have a very short description on the back of the product’s box. None are not mentioned in the User Guide, they aren’t referenced in the menus, and don’t appear with the other programs. “Boris Graffiti” puts a folder in the Windows menu listing, which only contains “Release Notes” which point to a missing htm file; and an entry for a Prodad Vitascene manual. So, of 7 programs, 1 is usable and 6 are undescribed/useless if indeed they even installed.

Having gotten this far, your headaches are mostly over. For basic editing, this works pretty much like x5, and the look & feel is similar. But – and this is a *huge* but – the 64-bit version much, much faster.

Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Corel has really done it this year. We see the most significant update since years with X7 and many more useful add-ons. Here's what's new for Ultimate X7. *** At the end of the review I'll compare X7 Ultimate to X7 Pro ***

UPDATE #1 - 64-Bit processing. This is huge! All previous versions were 32-bit, meaning that the new 64-bit X7 can process videos at twice the power. To get a grasp on this concept, think of your computer processor as being a tube that can either be 32 or 64 inches wide. When you have the smaller 32 inch size, less information can flow through and the tube is more likely to full and "bottleneck". Bottlenecks are when the maximum information is flowing through the tube. This causes other processing to slow down and your system to load slower because each process has to wait for the others to finish before it can begin. If you 64 inch wide tubes, then there is 2x as much room for information to pass through before the computer bottlenecks and slows down.

Some people online ran some speed tests and they found that the new VideoStudio X7 beats last year's VideoStudio X6 by rendering up to 68 percent faster for HD multitrack projects with hardware acceleration, up to 153 percent for 4K projects, and up to 854 percent with smart rendering (processing only the changed regions of the video. This is nearly twice to more than twice as fast as last year for standard rendering and nearly 9 times as fast for smart rendering (less processing done on each video when rendering, more carryover from original video clip). These are amazing gains!

Since Windows 7, most computers are running 64-bit Windows. Now Corel is running at 64-bit as well. This is the greatest improvement - beyond all the add-ons and plug-ins.
