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.

OBS Studio

From simple streaming to bigger events, OBS has been able to handle all of it with full confidence from us. Have never questioned if it was going to be unreliable in a specific situation, even with minimal training. Software identified the external input source easily and had no issues setting that up (Blackmagic Mini Recorder), and great for pulling in separate audio from the computer input.

Pros

OBS Studio

  • It is easy to start with a product that is free, there isn't the financial overhead to get started with it.
  • There are a lot of plugins that you can use to add lots of custom functionality. You can make your broadcasts whatever you want with it.
  • The quality of the videos that come out of OBS studio is very high, I am very happy with the results I get with it.

Cons

Corel VideoStudio Pro

  • I would like a library of additional resources such as transitions
  • I would like to see available work and templates that can be downloaded to speed up processing
  • More video demonstrations/teaching would be nice

OBS Studio

  • I would really love the option to select and “preview” the next scene in queue before switching to it - much like an old-school Television switcher.
  • An option to have customizable colour schemes for the interface would be helpful.
  • The ability to use multiple scene transitions - hard cuts, fades, wipes, etc, and being able to use them freely between takes.

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.

Very usable because it is free and has had a lot of people helping to suggest improvements and sponsors have allowed the product to grow in sophistication and suitability across a variety of situations and use needs. It is very logical to use once you get started, although the dashboard can seem intimidating at first.

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

OBS Studio has been so easy to use that I have not had a need to reach out for support with the program. Actually, I am unsure if the program even offers any sort of support for its use, though I am sure that it does in some way. I give them a thumbs up for creating a program that, thus far, has not needed support.

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.

I have also used TinyTake by Mango Apps and I prefer OBS studio because the video quality results are better and OBS allows you to record an unlimited length of the video. OBS also lets you record an entire screen instead of manually having to draw your parameters, which can create oddly sizes videos if you miss by a few pixels.

Return on Investment

Corel VideoStudio Pro

  • Clearly stated goals and presentations
  • A fun, anti-boring way to present new ideas and/or past success
  • Has effectively shown an important opinion; it gets the message across in a sharp, exciting way in a space where many struggle to capture attention
Mario Stone | TrustRadius Reviewer

OBS Studio

  • People can watch our live meeting.
  • We can teach somebody to [review] our recordings. OBS Studio can be used to capture your computer's screen presentation and record it as a video. We can use those videos as instructions to the staff.
  • With in a short time we can edit our video.
