Video editing software and digital camcorders have dropped in price consistently, so that you no longer need to drop $10,000 to start editing videos. Ulead's VideoStudio sets itself at the forefront of budget-purpose video software, and it includes releases of excellent value for more hard-up users who want to make a music video. You can also produce a documentary of your life.

VideoStudio definitely looks pleasing to the eyes, and you have a whole host of tools that work with HD media and templates. Along with that you have video effects, capturing tools, and filters. You have different apps that have been bundled with the software to meet the needs of various skill levels. You have Movie Wizard, which has become a key utility of the software. The VideoStudio Editor is where all the magic happens.

When you mull over everything the program offers, it certainly boasts an impressive collection of effects and editing features. You also have an extended storyboard, which lets you organize and view the different movie scenes. The timeline is ubiquitous throughout, and you have easy freeze frame options. Along with that, the customized title and the text templates are a great experience. The different audio tracks let you have better voice narration, and you have built-in instrumental scores that will fit with the length of the movie. What a lot of people like about the user interface is how easy it is to navigate. There are a variety of features that you can take advantage of, and they can take the most beginner of a film producer and help them understand the basics. Doubtlessly, even with only some practice, you can make a great-looking creation.

Despite the positives, you could encounter a few setbacks along the way. For example, the biggest problem with VideoStudio is how it strains your system's memory. Unfortunately, they do not seem to want to address the problem, which means that you have crippling load speeds unless you have a superior computer. In addition, previewing a complex edit can be an absolute nightmare with the audio and clips jumping and lagging often.

Another huge annoyance includes the fact that VideoStudio does not let you rewind or fast forward from your scene previews. In addition, the timeline and the zoom facility are not powerful enough. Ulead, the company that created VideoStudio, has also neglected to include support for Blu-Ray, which could be a problem for some film producers. If you need support, forget about it. A lot of angry people have reported that their queries went unanswered. If you want a budget-friendly video editing software, VideoStudio might be able to get the job done, but there could also be a certain level of inconvenience. Just make sure that you consider your needs beforehand.
