What Is Great
It’s extremely easy to use Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum. When you first look at it, everything is settled to where it’s supposed to be at. There is a timeline a program window and a bin to choose your own footage. You will also notice transition options and affects you can choose from. If you are just getting started in learning how to use the software, you will see a tutorial feature that is titled show me how.
This tutorial system allows you to learn all you need to get started in just about 15 minutes’ time. If you’ve completed editing in the past, this tutorial will allow you to move around the interface quickly so that you can learn how to use the controls and where everything is.
The timeline feature is super easy to navigate and even allows you to use separate tracks for any music or other audio files. The effects and transition features are easy to use and pick up on. When you hover over each of your transitions, you can drag and drop them with a simple slider-based interface.
Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum is really easy to use even for beginners just starting out. If you are a hobbyist who is learning to put basic stories together, this is a great program to get you started.
What Is Not So Great
There really is no preview window in the program, which means you have to view the clips right in your timeline. If you have shorter clips this really isn’t a huge issue, but when they get longer, this can really be a pain in the butt. When you upgrade to Sony Movie Studio 13 Platinum, this feature comes back, and you have full access to all the easy sliders and transition features you’d expect. It’s definitely worth the upgrade to Platinum to get these features.
The software of this program is basic, but that’s great when it comes to starting out in the video editing world. If you want something a little more detailed, this is not the software for you. But when you are making your own at home videos or piecing together videos for friends and family, this is a great way to get started in making personal and custom videos that they will love. Making your own videos is a fun and exciting hobby.
