Good software and great value for the money. Used its 'bigger brother' Sony Vegas Pro for a year or so whilst climbing the editing and animation ladder. Use much more sophisticated software packages now but this is a great way to step into the field.

Heat added.

I got this a couple years ago for occasional editing of my AVCHDlite video clip from my digital camera and it edits the format quite well (HD does require a reasonable spec PC to avoid lots of lengthy processing, I originally used it on a Core2duo 2GHz with 2GHz ram/Win7 and it was fine, then moved to an i5 with 4Gb and it's ever nicer to use) - Not too much of a learning curve as I'd already used the super bug ridden but simple Pinnacle Studio 9. There's a few useful Youtube videos to get you up to speed quickly (simple things like transitions, basic editing etc)

This pack includes DVD Architecture Studio 5 and Soundforge Audio Studio 10 as well as Sony Studio 11

HOT for the price

Good software but keep in mind Vegas Movie Studio 12 is where Sony added full 64-bit support. For those of you using this to do heavy editing with many clips, plump for the newer version. Long-term it's the wiser investment. But don't buy 13: bugs, crashes and an inferior interface apparently.

I use 12, I downloaded the 13 trial and it crashes the moment I add any video :| The interface is touchscreen friendly, the big 'buttons' are a mess when using it 'conventionally.'

Hot. I like Vegas. You get a suprising proportion of the functionality of the full Vegas Pro package in this box.

Even supports 3D for the 10 people who use it for their home movies.

Even for basic video creation, is this worth it as an alternative to WMM?

Other than iMovie?

It's basic, but does what most home users want.

I have been using the Vegas applications for the past six years. I started with this software when i first started out using an NLE. Many years back (ten plus) I used WMM, but this is significantly more useful and versatile, and £17 is a bargain.

I am using VP13 and HitFilm Ultimate now, and still use Motion 5 for good measure...

if in doubt, just get it, great software once you get used to it...


Ps. Only nine left to find, Im a 3D editor, have the Sony 3D camera.

For the price it will suit many an editor.

Lots of features.

I've been using v11 for a while on a 64-bit PC and had no issues even when rendering large videos with a mix of different cameras and sound inputs whereas I found 9 could be a bit flaky in the same situation.

I think this is an absolute steal for the price, I started with Vegas as it was one of the early editors with native AVCHD support but I quickly came to like the way it did things - to make it makes sense the way it handles fades and transitions although some may be put off by the functional interface, it isn't customised to have many wizards to step you through however the 'show me how' is handy for giving you some hints about a process and it's usually easy to find videos online to guide you through what you want to do.

Yes, it supports AVCHD natively so you can just drop the clips straight from the camera onto the timeline. I've used it with Panasonic and Sony AVCHD video without issue.

I guess it depends on how you find WMM, with the later versions they've obviously simplified it right down which is understandable as that's what some people want as it makes it very easy to stick a few clips together and add some music. If you find that simplification frustrating and you want a bit of control then I think Vegas is well worth it particularly when it's this cheap. I bought it initially for basic videos as other software including WMM didn't support AVCHD, I found it quite simple to get started with when I just wanted to put a few clips together with transitions and then gradually built it up. Although it's a consumer version of the much more expensive software, it's not as limiting as you'd expect so even if you want to do something fancier like mix together footage from four different cameras and sync them to a separate audio track it handles it fine and makes it surprisingly easy.

I just got vegas pro 13 and it seems great! Until now I'd been using movie maker and roxio video wave, but decided to take the plunge into pro level software. Vegas seems really user friendly and from everything I've read you get most of the main features with the consumer level version so at this price I'd say it was a good deal. It's a couple of versions old, so may be worth checking what the differences are, but if you're just planning on using it for home videos or YouTube this seems a winner :)

Same situation here. It's a sad reality that so called updates or new versions are often dumbed down or loosing functions over time juste to please the mainstream consumer.

Can you add text, animated text and logos with this. Also whats colour correction like?
#22
can this be used to edit movies taken on iOS devices?

Yes, you can add text, it has a text generator for animated text (there's a variety of presets, not sure if you can your own) and you can change the positioning and size of the timelines - this allows you to have a small logo in the corner of your main video stream or have a picture in picture effect. There is colour correction but it's not something I've used that much so I wouldn't know what you're looking for, there are quite a few videos available explaining the colour correct tools which may be worth a watch.

This can't be the full version of Sound Forge included surely.

Is it crippled in some way?
