"This is an epic failure."

December 27, 2008  |  By _MissAlice_

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

Nice features, but they won't come in handy.

Cons

Crashes, doesn't play clips, REDUCES quality when it says on the box "High Quality"

Summary

DONT BUY THIS.
I was working on a video that I made And for some reason it started now to play my clips. One clip was black and throughout the duration of that clip, it played the clip before. It was NOT on reapeat/loop/etc. This thing crasges SOOOOO much. I'm using it on Vista and on the box it says "for Vista" and THIS SUCKS!!! I was so happy when I first got it and was playing around with the editing features but when I started actually using it for videos, it doesn't play them and it crashes!!!

"Crash boom bang"

September 11, 2008  |  By HerrGarman

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

No idea. Software crashed constantly at the startup.

Cons

Unstable, buggy, clumsy installer

Summary

First of all - software does not run at all.
It crashes at the startup. Extract from Application log gives following information:
"Faulting application vstudio.dat, version 10.0.0.0, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x636e4552."
Process Monitor reveals quite a few BUFFER OVERFLOW results on %SYSTEMROOT%\%WINDIR%\WinSxS\ component access:
Example entry: ?
?X86_MICROSOFT.VC80.CRT_1FC8B3B9A1E18E3B_8.0.50727.1433_X-WW_5CF844D2?
Updating DirectX, VC 2005 and 2008 runtime does not resolve the issue.
The crashes are exactly the same with the earlier versions 10, 11 and 11.5

Additionally, installer is very clumsy and leaves installation files on the hard disk (requires manual removal). Equally at least 40 entries were left in the registry after uninstall.

To be fair I can't complain on the characteristics of video editing process, however last time I used Ulead Video Studio version 9, it struck me as a user friendly to certain extent, however less intuitive software lacking a bit of common sense.

Use it at your own risk.

"Great product for video editing beginners!"

April 23, 2005  |  By georgeous

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

I have the full version and I think perfectly captures the functionality of Windows movie maker plus more! There are more transitions and effects... and it's still as easy to use! Perfect for beginners in video editing like me.

Cons

After rendering my video to DVD format there was a delay in the sound...which may very well be the cause of my hardware set-up. With video editing, it would be advisable to have at least 1GB RAM... I had only 512MB.

"Good to make Movie, poor to watch"

April 11, 2005  |  By Swapan42

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

The proram works well. Lot of features and easy to create a professional movie.

Cons

The output quality is not usable. I made VCD, but while using it on VCD player the image comes frame by frame with pause. The sound and pics do not match. It only works well in very high end computer. Also if I make MPEG file the file size is too big (1.5 GB) for 70 minute movie and the image is not at all good quality. The output from Windows Movie maker which comes with windows XP is better. If ULEAD can provide solution to above problem this can be termed as BEST VIDEO EDITING Software.

One more limitation - Project created in 8.0 version can not be openned in 7.0 version

"Easy to use, lots of features included"

March 18, 2005  |  By dcm5150

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

Lots of included transistions. Easy to use with multi-track. Very rarely does it crash. Using on XP and haven't had problems loading. Now Pinnacle is a different story.

Cons

The capture interface and layout is not as nice a some others (Pinnacle), but at least you can acutally create a movie.

"Even their web site crashes!!!"

February 26, 2005  |  By dlipsitz

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Pros

Incompatible with any Windows version beyond 2000 (and sometimes with that one as well). Fails to initialize under WinXP Pro SP2 (from full version disk).

Cons

Forget about this one, it isn't worth it, unless you have a very old version and run Win 95 or 98. Completely incompatible with NT based Windows (ME, 2000, NT, XP, all releases). Even their web site had serious issues. The installation program is riddled with errors to numerous to list, ranging from the above incompatibilities to missing required files off their production full (retail) version CD-ROM. With so many problems, I'm amazed they are still in business. Maybe that is why their web site doesn't work right?

"A good program"

January 17, 2005

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Summary

I highly suspect some comments to come from competitors. VideoStudio can make a film from MPEG2 coming from a Sony camera, it can also make a film from DV coming from a handcam. Its use of memory seems stable and I saw no crash. This is the software I will choose to replace Pinnacle Studio 8 (which can't really process MPEG2, too slow even with 512MB/2.4Ghz).

"Crash, Crash, Crash"

January 15, 2005

 |  Version: Ulead VideoStudio 8.0

Summary

I am surprised by the lack of stability of this program. I am not an novice and know how to setup and work software. If there were conflicts, they were not listed in 'troubleshooting' and I did all the troubleshooting that I care to do.
