Likelihood to Recommend

Corel VideoStudio Pro

I really can't think of a video editing scenario that would NOT be suited for. It's quite robust and intuitive. It's quite appropriate for all levels of video editing that I have any need for - and you can really make it just about as complex or simple as you'd like.

It's best for editors that are beginning their career due to the easy way to learn this. However, you have to buy the license to be able to use and learn all of these great features. I can't seem to find scenarios where it would not be appropriate, this is an excellent, easy tool to work with.

It keeps simplicity and power in one program at a very fair retail price. Features are clearly marked and I feel spending about an hour with the program will make it a valuable asset to most organizations. Great for creating videos based on templates and a need for quantity. I can't imagine anything easier or better.

Updates are rare and it could be improved with a forum that addresses issues.

Alternatives Considered

Corel VideoStudio Pro

I haven't reviewed any other products, as I've been using [Corel] VideoStudio for 10 years now. I really don't have a need to switch.

Adobe is a great tool that is very competitive and I still use it depending on what PC I have on hand and how fast the job needs to get done but I selected Lightwork because I think that it is less complicated to browse and was able to learn the shortcuts fast, making my time more productive.
