Doesn't kill my machine!

Summary: It works quite well with Win7-64 bit. And, in comparison to Premiere 9 or higher, it does pretty much the same, without being such a resource hog that it shuts down your machine at the end of a render (Premiere is famous for this.) When they get it back in stock, buy it!
Excerpt: This software came with a Camcorder I purchased.<br /><br />The tutorial that comes with it is beneficial although for a lot of my questions I ended up going to YouTube to find the answers. The learning curve isn't bad. Chromakey worked well.<br /><br />It did freeze up a few times but my work was saved.<br /><br />Rendering was a problem and for 2 videos of mine the rendering never did come out 100% correct.<br /><br />Uploading straight to YouTube worked well.
Pros: Easy to Navigate, Plenty Of Tracks, Tutorial Included, Versatile
Excerpt: Upgrading from Corel VideoStudio ProX3 to Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 didn't blow whistles and bells. However, Sony is more complete for the set of features and as easy to work with as the Corel is. I hope it does the job even better.
Excerpt: Uses to edit camcorder captures (Canon HF M500/M31).<br />Useful editing and composition tools. Ugly, but useful interface. Good result, but slow render times. Quality takes time! Multitracks are essential for good videos.
Summary: I'm satisfied with the editing capabilities. Disappointed that I cannot author an AVCHD disk with the included DVD Architect. It's supposed to be able to burn to BluRay, but I haven't used that feature yet as I do not have a BluRay burner.
