Hi all, totally new to all of this editing video, so imagine my surprise when i tried the powerdirector express ne software that came with my jvc harddrive camcorder to find that it wasnt all that bad(and quite an easy program to use) until half an hour into my work the message "powerdirector has encountered a problem and needs to shut down". Very annoying, but being new to me i tried again, 40 mins later same old message, it would,nt be that bad if it gave you the option to save your work first, but it dont. Has anybody else had this problem? or am i wasting time with this product and go and get something different, if so what do you reccommend. Many thanks.
