I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on an HP Pavilion desktop e9107c.
System board chip set: Intel G45/G43/P45/P43
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU @ 2.33GHz
Total Physical Memory 8GB
2048 MB DDR3-SDRAM (1333MHz) x 4
Video card: ATI Radeon HD 4350, 512MB
Sound card: Realtek High Definition Audio
I'm most familiar with Avid Xpress Pro. I had a student version in 2005 on my old PC, and took a one semester course on using it.
I've been out of the loop since then and would like to know which programs stand out now. I find most video editing reviews are geared towards beginner level editors, so I'm glad I found this forum.
I'd like a program with plentiful features, no system crashes, and not buggy. I tried Adobe Premiere on my current PC and it kept inserting random green frames when I had a lot of tiny clips.
I am leaning towards Pinnacle Studio Ultimate Collection because it's by the company I am familiar with. I've also been hearing how fast Corel VideoStudio is.
When I further researched reviews on Amazon, I found that both products are buggy and crash frequently.
At this point, I'm quite confused as to which products have superior stability, and which products would work the best with my current system.
Any advice is most appreciated.
