"Won't work with most my file formats"
When it works, it is pretty easy to use
Won't open most of my files. The ones I did get to load and edit, when I cut a section, the audio no longer lined up.
It won't work with any of my video files. To load my .mpg files, it tells me I'm required to index first. Then at the end of indexing, it gives me an error "can't determine aspect ratio". So when the video loads, it plays too fast. I got similar problems loading .flv files.
I was able to load .avi files, but when I cut out commercials, it left the last 5 seconds of sound from the last commercial, so the sound was off for the rest of the video. I did everything their help website said to do to keep the audio and video in sync, but nothing worked.
One other downside is there is no prompt to save your project before closing it. If you close the program or start a new project without saving your previous project manually, you will loose your work.
BOTTOM LINE: maybe there is someone out there that has the exact right type of file that will work with this program, but none of mine do. When (if) you can get the program to work, it is so easy to cut out commercials, even from the middle of a video file. If they would only get the program to work right with my file types, it would be a great program.
