Editors' Review Staff Apr 30, 2014

A cut-down version of a premium video editing suite, Sony Movie Studio HD 11 brings you an accessible and efficient video editing environment. It handles as many as ten video tracks, supports up to 1080p/60fps, and offers a rich library of transitions and effects. DVD and Blu-ray authoring is unfortunately omitted and will require additional software.


Efficient editing environment: Sony Movie Studio HD 11 features a friendly NLE environment where clips can be easily and quickly assembled to a good overall result. The essential editing functions of the more expensive platinum version are retained without omissions.

Accessible to amateurs: Contains all the bare-bones essentials any amateur would need to start with NLE software. By putting limitations on features, Sony has created a package that is ideal for first-time NLE users.


Absence of DVD and Blu-ray authoring: Compared to the platinum version there is no 3D editing, surround-sound mixing, or XDCAM support. If these omissions are not worrisome, we think that the omission of DVD and Blu-ray authoring is something that is really lacking here. The type of users targeted by Movie Studio 11 are casual users that clearly look for a single do-it-all solution.

Somewhat outdated: The main reservation we have about version 11 is that it is now three-years-old. Sony has moved on to version 13, which introduces new features and support for more recent hardware and file types.

Bottom Line

While powerful, Sony Movie Studio HD 11 has been superseded by version 13. We suggest that you turn your attention to Sony's Movie Studio Platinum 13, whose modern hardware support and richer feature set make it more appealing.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sony Movie Studio HD 11 11.0 Build 75.
