It has very good tutorials covering pretty much every aspect, including some frankly amazing special effects - I'm sure a lot of other products can do similar effects but creating them is especially easy. Rotating video when I've accidentally knocked my camera askew (while riding motorcycles off-road) is trivial.
It doesn't annoy you by having a dozen menu items that won't work unless you fork out extra $ for the feature (a favorite trick in older versions of Pinnacle Studio (probably still in newer ones but I haven't used them) Pinnacle Studio had one of the best user interfaces I've encountered but was soooo horribly buggy that I could never complete anything more than a super trivial project with it - and even then on simple projects it still died on me half the time)
This is actually my second purchase of Movie Studio, I already have version 11 but I got a new computer and I like this package well enough I wanted to have it on both computers, so I bought another copy. Not many software packages out there that I like enough to do that.
If you have a dual-monitor setup you can have the preview play full screen on the secondary monitor while the UI stays in the primary one, which makes life easier.
If you've got a lot of horsepower (I'm running i7-4771 with 32GB of RAM) you can open multiple copies of Movie Studio and render videos in parallel.
That's actually quite a handy thing to do. I ride dual-sport motorcycles with the GoPro on a chest mount harness. I accumulate a _lot_ of video and often I don't feel like sorting through it and editing it to isolate the really good parts, but I also don't want to throw it away. I just open 3 or 4 instances of Movie Studio and drag and drop a video into each, then render the video in lower resolution so it doesn't eat up so much disk space. That's much better than the serial method of dragging a video clip in, wait for it to render, save it to disk, drag another video clip in and render that etc.
I'm generally not a huge fan of Sony due to its love of proprietary hardware and interfaces, but I've been buying stuff from their software division for years and it has been an excellent experience every time.. Reasonable prices, reasonable upgrade policies, reasonable licensing, very reliable software and it presents the features most needed without overwhelming the user with all the zillions of complex features it contains.
I don't hand out 5 stars lightly, this is good stuff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
I started movie editing with Pinnacle and it was ok; then they were bought by AVID.
AVID reworked it and produced a great product; but within six months figured out dealing with consumer editors was not something they wanted to do. They sold to Corel.
I agreed with most people that going with Corel was not something I was willing to tolerate; I would not use Corel if it were free.
Most reviewers said not to buy the Sony because it was too much learning curve.
What I like about the Sony package is; although the learning curve may be a little more steep, the understanding curve is right on. It makes sense and it works.
I also tried the Adobe Premiere package and was more disappointed with that than I have ever been with a software package; crash city, the one thing I could rely on when I booted the software is it was going to lock up.
It does not try to make all the decisions for you, it does not try to assume it knows more about what you want than you; you make the decisions and give the commands then the software works for you; it works.
I also like the idea of the separate programs for the different aspects of production.
A video editor program.
An audio program.
A music production program.
A disc authoring program.
Each program does its thing;
and it works.
I would recommend this package to anyone wanting to get above the click it and settle for it video editing but don't have a ton of money to throw away.
I am happy; it works.
Keep in mind that although there is a help feature, your best instructions for using it will be from Utube videos. My favorite is Sony Movie Studio 13 Basic Training Part 1 - , by Steve Grisetti. There are several others, some of which concentrate on particular problems, but if you stick with the steep learning curve it will do all you want it to do. Quite frankly I'm just a beginner, but after banging my head against the wall and re-reading or re-watching the videos, you can get it to do what you want.

You need to find the option in Windows to ‘Turn Windows features on or off’. This will be under the Programs and Features settings.
In the list will be the following option:
.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)
Put a check in the box and press ok. This will download and install the required .NET components that the Movie Studio installer - for whatever reason - has trouble downloading.
Run the Movie Studio installer again and it should work fine. I have run into this problem a few times and this solution has always worked for me, so hopefully it will help somebody else.
As for Movie Studio Suite itself, it is actually pretty good, but these technical issues are disappointing especially considering the box has a ‘Windows 10 compatible’ sticker on it.
The whole bundle is amazing value - including music tools, DVD authoring, plugins and effects. In addition to the ones advertised, there are cards inside (at least in my copy) with links to further free plugins from Hitfilm.
The two big and one small downside(s) for me (for which I have subtracted one star) are that the buttons on screen are just far too big, render times for final movie are unbelievably slow and titling workflow is a bit unusual. The buttons on the screen in this version of Movie Studio are designed for Touchscreen users, so they are big, clunky and use a lot of valuable screen space. Why the application doesn't have a 'regular' and 'touchscreen' option I will never know (it does have a simple and advanced interface). As a result, commonly used buttons don't fit along the bottom of the screen too, and appear in a 'config' pop-up, which is frustrating. Renders to final movie are tortuously slow, and I have accepted that if I am going use this application regularly, my renders will need to be left running overnight and sometimes much of the next day. Lastly 'titles' &b text are added to the edit as effects, which is not the obvious way to handle titling.
Overall though I am very happy with my purchase. You can see my first movie produced on this package here:
Honestly working with Sony Vegas 13 for the first few months was a nightmare, unlike Vegas 11 which didn't require any presetting to work I quickly found out that Sony Vegas 13 does but there's also several minor details which bother me. For what is supposedly an upgrade it feels like a 'Sony-for-dummies' program with it's 'Simple' and 'Advanced' version - like seriously what's the point? You will likely find that that in order for Sony not to lag, which was my biggest problem, you cannot have the preview window in it's best setting you have to maintain it at 'Preview (Auto)' which means that the footage will be pixelated to an extent on the preview.
The lagging issues took a long while to figure out, what I would find is that the audio was all over the place, that when I rendered even in HD quality the footage would be terribly pixelated and the lyrics/footage would not match by about a several seconds to a minute. There are a ton of videos and forums discussing the lagging issues online which of course you can look at to solve your own issues with lagging if you are presented with them, however be warned that a lot of these pertain to Sony Vegas 12 more so than 13. How I solved my issue with by going onto 'Properties' then under the 'Full-resolution rendering quality' go for the option 'Draft' while also maintaining 'Preview (Auto)' for the preview window it has solved all my lagging issues with Sony and the after-rendered video was in perfect condition with no lagging or pixelation.
Though I do believe that it is ridiculous that while Sony Vegas 11 could maintain a high-quality preview window with no lagging issues immediately upon installing that Sony Vegas 13 requires several alterations (depending on your situation) despite being an 'upgrade'. However upon getting it working it's not been too bad, if you need to go for this program because of installing Windows 10 or whatever reason it is not a bad option just keep in mind to set it to your liking quickly.
The Muvipix.com Guide to Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13: The tools, and how to use them, to make movies on your personal computer with Sony's amazing video editing program
helped a great deal. I didn't read it start to finish (who does?), I just looked at bits I wanted to do. Once you understand the basic concepts it all makes sense, I started from zero, it's all logical.
I'm no expert and I suspect my needs are basic to average, but I can't see how I need any more than these 2 items provide.
After fixing this problem however this software is a powerful tool in your video editing that I personally use on a daily basis for my YouTube channel.
Okay so it's missing a few key features in comparison to Sony Vegas Pro, But then again when you check the pricing of both software you wouldn't expect to get everything Sony Vegas Pro has in this software.
In a short verdict. I would recommend this product but just be prepared to do some manual patches to the software if you decide to buy it.
On top of that the other programs are amazing also! Haven't spent so much time on those but will write a better review soon
Great software, once you have played around with and got to know it, you can do a lot with it!
Everything works faultlessly!
