Corel VideoStudio Pro is a video capture, editing, and publishing suite for PC.

Good video editing software isn't easy to find on the PC. Corel VideoStudio Pro is a real standout, especially if you are new to editing. While the video capture is the star of the show here, the sheer number of tutorials and wizards available make this one of the best products on the market for new editors. There are programs that do more, of course, but few that are willing to hold your hand through the difficult phases of learning. If you want software that's user-friendly, this is for you.

Though it may be friendly to users, this is not a program that's friendly to computers. This is a major resource hog, so make sure you have a decent modern computer before you download the program. Even with a good rig, you're going to experience enough crashes that you'll want to get into the habit of saving your work every time you make a change. If something goes really wrong, you should also know that you can't count on any kind of tech support from Corel - you're better off asking a stranger online.

If you're looking for good video capture and editing software, you can do a lot worse than this program. Corel VideoStudio Pro is a great tool for beginners and has a lot to offer for those who have been editing for years. Remember that you're going to be on your own if you run into problems, and that you'll be facing some fairly frequent crashes. Back up your work, and you'll be fine.
