Editors' Review

+

Except for one drawback, Corel VideoStudio is an outstanding video creator and editor. Its main flaw is its lack of speed. It installs slowly, it loads slowly, and it works slowly.

When it comes down to creating videos and photo slideshows, however, the program is top-notch. It even lets an amateur turn video footage into a finished film--complete with transitions, picture-in-picture, and effects--with a minimal learning curve. You can capture video from the program's interface, import HDV and AVCHD, or import video from a file, a digital camera, or a DV camcorder. The handy interface lets you create an animated title screen, assemble a film by dragging and dropping audio and video fragments, and applying transitions onto the montage line. We like the new paint feature which lets you draw or write freehand on your videos making it easy to add thought balloons or draw your travel route on a map, for example. The new picture-in-picture and montage effects add even more polish to your home video projects.

The video-editing module contains a large library of filters, effects, and tools. You can share your video online, and even burn a VCD or SVCD with the built-in burner. New end-to-end HD support also allows you to import and burn in HDV and AVCHD. Assuming you have enough patience and a great hardware setup, Corel VideoStudio should appeal to home-video enthusiasts.

"I'm starring mostly at (Not Responding)"

May 24, 2012  |  By flwolf

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Nice interface and relatively easy to work with - when it works. I have a brand new Dell desktop PC with 8 GB DDRAM, 3.30 GHz, 1T HD, Windows 7 64-bit and a Windows experience index of 4.7. I thought, this would be enough to run this program smoothly, but every click means another 1 minute wait or more for the thing to wake up again. I'm working on a 9 minute video, but I'm getting tired of it. By the time the programs starts working again, I have forgotten what I wanted to do next!

Cons

Extremely slow rendering. The Audio segment is piddly fiddly stuff with tiny nods and about 1/4 inch vertical room to move them. The Audio mixer's faders do not cause anything to move or respond. When listening to a segment in Solo Mode, the sound seems loud, so you reduce the volume, only to be too quiet when running the entire video.

Summary

Unless I miss everything and do everything wrong, I am disappointed. I have been a Corel user and fan for over a decade, using Draw and other programs of theirs, but I probably won't buy this program. Another thing is, that Corel makes it impossible to write to them, if you're evaluating the trial version. Their Email Customer Support requires a Serial #, but the trial doesn't have one, so...

"Constantly crashes, no support, no fixes. Don't buy!!!"

November 15, 2010  |  By gary_martin2006

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Nice interface, easy to use.

Cons

Regardless of the interface or features, this program is useless as it constantly crashes. I have a studio PC with loads of memory and disk space! I'm trying out Cyberlink 8 as the reviews are top for this package.

Summary

Bottom line is that I have persevered with this package and have finally given up! I've wasted good money on dodgy software, no wonder stuff gets pirated!!! Don't waste your money on this package, no matter what the deal is.

"Easy to Use"

January 22, 2010  |  By lovelyl1976

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

So far not much of a problem, easy to use like WMM player got some great effects etc.

Cons

Doesn't allow AVI and a lot of other main video file names even when you have a codec pack.

Summary

Not a bad little program, only if your willing to convert your video files first before usage.

"Easy enough to install. Trial Version"

January 12, 2010  |  By debb655

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Installation was good. The program uploaded files from mini dvd perfect the first time. I even burned dvd.

Cons

Trial version would not upload mini dvd files the 2nd time I tried to use it. Kept getting error messages. "device not reconized or connected. Support told me it was corrupted they directed me to uninstall/ reinstall. Nothing happen.

Summary

Maybe full version works better. I will not purchase. I spent hours with this, waste of my time.

"good software but too slow"

January 09, 2010  |  By davecrompton

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Good effects and the final video it produces is of high quality.

Cons

Too slow to be usable!

Summary

Painfully slow, even on a fairly high-spec machine. Managed to edit around 20 minutes of video (of an estimated 3hrs) and already the lag is unbearable.

"Corel delivers when it comes to Video Studio Pro X2."

January 09, 2010  |  By maineflaim

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Price and features. When I purchased this product Corel included two huge bundles of extras including stock video and audio to use in your own projects. For the number of things you can accomplish Video Studio is very user friendly.

Cons

I can't really think of anything considering the price of this product. Considering the value, it's hard to think of something to complain about.

Summary

I've been using this product almost daily for a month and it is reliable and user friendly. I noticed in some other reviews people mentioned crashes or freezing. What I would suggest is that they may not have a handle on a few of the features and it's not the software. I had a few bumps when when learning the software, but realized it was me not the product when I did have a snag. It's been smooth sailing since then.

"Slow and locks"

January 01, 2010  |  By Burnt-Oak

 |  Version: Corel VideoStudio Pro X2

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

VERY slow. To save a 38 min project as MPEG it took 7 hours after 3 attempts (the first 2 locked in the first hour.)

Summary

Unreliable. I'll look at Movie Maker

December 26, 2009  |  By ruiman

Hard to figure out how to use all of the features. I experienced several lockups and lost my work a couple of times.
