    I really don't know what to say, but this video editing software just isn't my thing.

    There must be considerably better video editing programs on the market. This software just isn't for me!

    Nico

    I actually feel like I wasted my time installing this. There are way better video editing programs out there.

    Kay
    07/12/2018

    In my opinion, this is not a good video editing software. I've uninstalled it.

    06/12/2018

    I removed the program from my computer after just a few days. Not my thing at all!

    What should I say? Definitely a disappointment in my book!

    I feel like I've somehow been misled by the promises of the publisher.

    The video editing software is not compatible with all formats and platforms. A real problem for me!

    Benjamin
    01/12/2018

    I wasn't all that impressed with the importing or the exporting features.

  • Olivia

    By no means have I been impressed by the range of features available. I'm more than disappointed!

    Oscar
    29/11/2018

    In my opinion, the video editing features are really amateurish, and by no means are there enough of them.

    William
    28/11/2018

    Lots of effects are either not included at all, or they're hard to get to or only available for an extra fee.

    Grace
    27/11/2018

    The program is advertised as user-friendly, but in reality it really isn't.

    Charlotte
    26/11/2018

    The program constantly gets stuck and doesn't run smoothly at all.

  • Carry
    25/11/2018

    My computer is really state-of-the art and yet if I have the video editing software running, I can't do anything else.

    Alexander
    24/11/2018

    The standard features available aren't enough to begin with, and as far as special features, I didn't see a single one.

    Isaac
    23/11/2018

    As a non-expert, I had a lot of trouble using this program. For me at least, this video editing software is way too complicated.

    Illay
    22/11/2018

    Far too expensive in my opinion, especially considering the range of functions and options it actually gives you.

    Edward

    Customer support is really hard to reach and the members of the support team are unfriendly.
