"Showbiz 5 lacking"

February 27, 2014  |  By katbo64

 |  Version: ArcSoft ShowBiz


Lots of options and easy editing.


Lags, stops working in middle of projects.
Lost lots of fun editing features of previous versions.


Used to be a great editing software, prices went up, quality went down.

It does something


It is extremely difficult to use.
With a quadcore setup and 8 gb of RAM the program frequently shows the mouse wait cursor and there is a lot of hesitation when you try to move the cursor through a video.
Extremely difficult to use.
Bad support. They kept asking me if I had a registered version EVERY TIME I TALKED TO THEM ON THE SAME ISSUE!
I even sent them my registration number but they still kept asking me.
Their forums do now allow you edit posts after post them. Nobody answers questions on their forums.
The program would not play sound in some of my mpeg2 videos. I got no help for this.


I used to use Showbiz 2 it was a little buggy but it was very easy to figure out and use. This one is awful.
I tried to figure out how to simply add 13 videos and create a video disc with 13 separate chapters on a menu. I couldn't do it even though I have used video editing programs in the past.
It is just the most confusing , buggy, and disappointing piece of software I have ever used. It would not even be worth it if it was free.
