    "Worst tech support system ever"

    April 22, 2014  |   By Huffnpuf

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X7

    Pros

    If it works your lucky. Check out the Corel news groups.

    Cons

    Their support is only good for one instance then you pay.
    I believe they deliberately have lousy software so you have to phone and pay for support. Then when you do phone for support it is no good. I have been using Corel software for over 15 years and in the last two years all their software and support has started going down a very steep hill.

    Summary

    I think it is regrettable that Corel has chosen this path of buying up really good software companies and lowering them to their new standards. In my opinion look for alternative software. This is not meant to be a personal attack on the Corel Company but a sincere way to inform the consumer of what to probably expect.

    "Crashes often & fails to render large mp4"

    January 2, 2014  |   By Holybride

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X3

    Pros

    I compare Corel to Avid, Corel has better video result & better sound quality (for live performances audio) than Avid.

    Cons

    Corel doesn't have a lot of effects or any photo slides, crashes almost all the time (very very often / within minutes), & fails at 99% while rendering a High Definition mp4 (the file is gone/not created at all), the picture in picture effect reduces the quality of the picture/video that is using the effect.

    Summary

    It's very easy to use, very convenient than Avid, but I have to think again of using it as it crashes almost every 20 minutes or so.

    "Good product for the Money, but terrible support."

    August 3, 2013  |   By HoosierforGod

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    Did everything I wanted and more.

    Cons

    I tried their free version and decided I would buy the full version and by another software for pictures. I tried paying using Paypal, something happened and I was unable to finish transaction. Paypal said that they paid Corel. I could not download nor was I sent any email confirmation. This was a Saturday morning, they only have customer support Monday through Thursday. Contacted them on a that Monday following via chat. Long story short three phone calls and a week and a half later, I received a refund and an email with a new link to down load the package. This after me throwing a fit. They then to add fire to the mixture the link was for the product was higher than my original transaction!

    "Beware. Corel Videostudio support is not good"

    July 14, 2013  |   By jpulickal

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    Easy to use.
    Even beginners can learn quickly.

    Cons

    AV sync is bad

    Summary

    Insert a one minute video on to time line.
    Mute audio every other 10 seconds for an experiment.
    Insert music from the auto music insert.
    Compensate muted audio of the video. Reduce level where original audio is present. Leave music where original audio is muted.
    Preview is excellent. Original audio for 10 seconds, music for 10 seconds and so on.
    Share the timeline to convert to MPEG4.
    Audio sync is no where same as you heard in preview.
    Contacted on-line tech who identified as Chris B.
    Walked him through to demonstrate. He put me on hold for 20 mintues, talked to some one else, and finally took my email ID and promised to get back. Never heard from him.
    Bugs are expected but I wouldn't release a product with broken main feature. Besides, the support sucks.

    My recommendation is to hold on until they fix the bug and ensure timely support.

    "Avoid: "Twentieth Century" Customer Support"

    May 19, 2013  |   By rwladaeplur

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    An inexpensive and comprehensive video/audio edit system

    Cons

    I began with Video Studio Pro X3

    Jerky, cumbersome interface - difficult to set precise edit points

    Warning Video Studio Pro converts video to a .vsp extension. When my video studio pro software went corrupt I was unable to access the converted video.

    Do not fail to back up your video before using.

    Despite the fact Corel's offering an uninstall tool, VSP failed to uninstall properly. Over the next year I made over a dozen failed attempts to reinstall.

    At last I reached an on line service rep. I explained I wanted to reinstall pro X3 and upgrade. He crisply informed me Pro X3 was out of support and that he must end our conversation.

    After reformatting my C drive I was able to reinstall Pro X3, still planning to upgrade to Pro X 6. However, my activation code had been invalidated and Corel had blocked me from all avenues of contract and left holding the bag.

    Summary

    I am a television producer/reporter experienced with operating high end, but not top of the line edit software. I bought VSP for hobby/experimental work because of it diverse features and low cost.

    I thought the Video Studio interface was OK and had no serious problems with the software, apart from its going corrupt.

    Clearly while other companies like Microsoft learned in the late 90's and early 00's that they would have to shrug off the kind of swaggering arrogance that treats customers like serfs, Corel is still stuck in the Dark Ages and has not re-learned the art of customer support.

    So, while the product was "acceptable" in terms of functionality given the hassles created by its proprietary file extensions and shaky customer support, I'm going to go and find the free editor I installed when Video Studio Pro crashed in the first place. In the meantime I have the 30 day trial version installed and will be converting my .vsp video files back to .wmv

    "Perfect for homevideos"

    April 11, 2013  |   By fhansson999

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    - Easy to learn user interface
    - Support for many new formats (including 60/50p AVCHD)
    - Fast rendering
    - Nice pre-sets
    - Stop motion, motion tracking and speed shift
    - Stable

    Cons

    - Large projects can be hard to get an overview of
    - Does not work on older graphics cards (anymore?)

    Summary

    This is the perfect home/action-video editing software for them using the new camera gadgets flooding the market. Action cameras, smartphones and compact digital cameras is what this is aimed for. Up to 1 hour footage is okay but longer projects tend to be hard to overview and clumsy to edit. It is not a "movie maker" like Photoshop Premiere but perfect for 10-30 min clips editing. Motion tracking, stop motion and speed shift is cool new features that will make action videos look very professional. The performance is good and it renders faster than competitors, specially if you have multicore CPU and a modern GPU. Talk about GPU, older cards from 2006 and like can not take advantage of the new features and therefore an upgrade from X5 is pointless on an older computer. For the price this is a very good software, easy to use and full of cool features. It is stable and renders fast. Get it if you are into home editing.

    "Couldn't open my capture device."

    March 29, 2013  |   By chatins

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    30 days left on trial so I didn't loose money.

    Cons

    Program crashed with error message on installation. Will need a Mac to finish my video project.

    Summary

    Don't waste time on this low quality software.

    "You guys have to try this out"

    March 22, 2013  |   By ffleader1

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    Nice program, a lot of features, and it DOES accelerate your GPU (I love it because Sony Vegas cannot accelerate my HD 7770 GPU), nice rendering video quality,...

    Cons

    Honestly, there is not much templates available for this program.

    Summary

    I give this program 5 stars :D

    "Can't Beat the Price for what you get!"

    March 12, 2013  |   By terrystephens16

    Version: Ulead VideoStudio 11 X6

    Pros

    Many features. The Program is one of the easiest video editing software's you can ever hope to work with. Not only is it a fairly nice editor, but the fact that you can pick up the full version for $100 can't be beat. By for a version I mean VS 6 Ultimate.

    Cons

    There are a number of things that could have been designed differently. Some features that make for a good editor are missing.

    Summary

    Anybody relatively new to video editing will find this program surprisingly easy to work with compared to the other high-end ones out there. It's by no means the best video editor. But some of the best of video editors are very difficult to learn how to use. As a starter video editor you can't go wrong with this one. It does the majority of the things that the very expensive programs do. And you can purchase the full-featured version for only $100. If you punch in freedomearthmoon 1 on a YouTube search you will find some of my tutorials dealing with Corel VideoStudio. I've only uploaded 2 so far for the new version 6.
