VideoStudio Pro Ultimate X8 (Boxed) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST ONE SO FAR This retail version of Corel VIDEOSTUDIO PRO X8 ULTIMATE THIS IS 64 BIT OR 32 BIT #7 IS ALSO 64 BIT. This has so many features as the other companies final cut X and Elements and After effects. This is far easier than all 3 combined. If you have 1 camera or 20 you can use this program with ease. You can make simple programs or very spectacular effects and more. This comes with extra effects like Borris and proDAD, NewBlue FX and you can even create the 4K ultra HD to watch on your 4K HDTV's. This IS a bit more to learn than windows video program, but not as complicated as the ones I listed. I have been using this product since version 3.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional, inexpensive, but not easy to learn I'm probably not the most qualified reviewer of this, as it's the first video editing software I've used. I was looking for an inexpensive editor to use to make exposure adjustments to and take still snapshots from videos made by robotic wildlife observation cameras. I may have been expecting more than is possible with video, but the range of contrast and exposure adjustments is less than I'm accustomed to having available in photo-editing software. Other than that, it works well, but the user interface seems overly complex and far less intuitive than I would have expected, since I have extensive experience with still-picture editing software.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Software does not start, total waste of money for me I installed the software as 64bit app on Windows 7, when the setup completed I start the app, nothing happens. No error, no app coming up. After looking into task manager I see the app starting, then Windows error reporting starting, and everything terminating. Apparently the app dies quietly. No idea why. I tried reinstalling as 32bit on same machine, as well as as 64 and 32bit on machines running Windows 8.1 ad Windows 10. Same result. No way to get this software to start. Complete waste of the money I spent, and no way to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Templates and Presets This is a terrific product for its price range. The presets and templates are very well done. The options are are well executed. It does not allow as much control as I would like as a professional AV tech and Camera man. I would like more editing control. I would like a clearer face to the program. Its geared toward speed of production and not detail adjustments as I am accustomed to. What appealed to me and why I decided to buy it were the Presets and Templates. I highly recommend this product for ease of use, Templates, and quick production. I use this primarily for Church video (Masses and special events that are volunteer work for me) where I can create a professional (or near) look with minimal time investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic In the past month, I have made 2 movies, each about 30 minutes long, with titles, many transitons and 10 song music soundtracks, (balanced using the soundmixer with the video's own soundtrack). I had seen a lot of tutorial videos at You Tube from 2 sites that taught me almost all I needed to know- from the Software Tutorialer at and also a guy named Gripps at /playlist?list=PLpawsvQkgoLKiZAlazgmJcOUS70cS4K2K After watching and learning from these, I found this program perfect for my needs. I shoot video with the Canon 6D and also GoPro Hero 3 and upload to You Tube & Vimeo (and put on thumbdrives to send out). This program handles all the video and audio file types (coming in and going out) that I have thrown at it. I've have no problem with glitches or program freezes. It's not an easy program to first dive into... UNLESS you watch some tutorials, but then it's great. Any tutorials you see for Corel Video Studio X7 (and some for X5)are almost the same and will help the learning curve as well as those for X8. Go onto the Corel site right away and download some of the free packs of effects or transitions etc. You might not know what they do right away, but they will still be fun to experiment with down the line. I really have no negatives to report thus far. But again- watch some (or a lot) of tutorials from those sites- I don't think I would have found, on my own, half the little buttons or right click context menus or where to go for what, if I hadn't. I highly recommend this program for all levels of expertise. I have seen complaints that it only has 20 overlay tracks- I've never used more than 3 myself, but if that matters to you then so be it. And I saw a complaint about having problems with Go Pro files, but I import from Hero 3 and export at 1280 HD with no problems at all- looks great on both ends (and it will do the really HD that is usable now, but I don't use it). It goes back and forth easily with Corel's Paint Shop, but I use Adobe's Lightroom for most of my photo editing, and it works just fine with that program too. It's a great program and I'm really glad I took a chance and paid the money (and studied the tutorials). I see no reason to have to look for another program for years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different Video Editing It's not bad for the price but it's outdated. It has a very small learning curve so that anyone can produce a relative looking video. It can not compare to Adobe products, which I have used for decades. For someone wanting a simple software, this would be for the ones that are just starting out in video. There are so many pre-made additions. Myself, I'll create beginning titles for my videos with the special effects and that's about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value It does screen capture recording and for that alone you get your money's worth. I produce online marketing videos for businesses and there are times I like to capture the website of some of my clients and this does the job. See sample of my work on Youtube. My channel is HJB Productions LLC. Am currently use Adobe Premiere CS6 and there are time the program act up so this is more of a backup in terms of video editing.
Date published: 2015-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best video editor for getting work done I edit videos to be used on web pages. I have been using the Corel product since Ulead owned it. I have been tempted and loaded other products but always fall back to Corel's Video Studio. Anyone can get 'real work' done in a short time. I highly recommend it. Please note that Microsoft sent out a security patch for windows that stopped Video Studio. A patch was released immediately by Corel so don't freak if it doesn't launch, it just means to load the patch. It will be worth it.
