Guest I downloaded and installed the program a few days ago: the movies editing works fine, I would say even great, but the output quality is terrible! Hope it's me doing something wrong, but feel this isn't the case... will abandon.

Guest Had the same problem. When choosing a profile to convert (high quality etc), modify it and set it to level 5 and change the bit rate to Max. 10,000 the default, is too low. 1080p should be greater than 8000. That's the problem.

Guest Just joined 2 AVI files together with this program.

Total running time of the joined video is just over 1 hour and 54 minutes with the conversion process (outputting a single .avi file) taking a total time of just over 2 hours and 10 minutes.

I will say that the machine I did this on only has 2GB of RAM and an Intel T2400 @ 1.83 GHz though so I guess I shouldn't expect it to be any quicker really.

Video quality is a little bit washed out but audio is great.

Just a little off topic but...

I will also mention that I recently used mkvmerge (MKVToolNix 7.0.0) for joining 2 x .mkv files (outputting 1 large .mkv file) and this program was super quick with the join process on the same machine.

Obviously, it only works with .mkv files (hence the name) and nobody wants a separate program for every file type but if you are looking for a super quick option for .mkv joins then I recommend it.

Guest Just installed it and played with it today. Really like the features it offers. However, the video output it generates is terrible so I won't use it for that reason.

Guest I had the same & was severally disappointed. However, you're actually the first who mentioned that. It might be due to a stuffed & slow computer?

Guest I can't hear any audio out of my video, does anyone know what can be the cause of this?

Guest Memory issue: VSDC uses lots of RAM and CPU.

Guest Crashes every half an hour.
Always waits till I've gotten somewhere with editing before it crashes.
It will work for hours just fine but as soon as you actually get somewhere with any kind of work, it just crashes and cites 'App crash' as the cause.

Guest It crashes every time I go to a spot on the timeline except the beginning, I really need this to work. I don't know why, it didn't perform it before, I love the software but it's really annoying when I can't edit anything.

lennaradam3 I used this app for my wedding last year and the new version is also great. A lot more effects and functions are added into this version.
It is very easy to use, straight forward and does exactly what it should. Great video editor and free!

Guest I have loved this program for a while, but the most recent version of this software has had a greatly reduced video quality output. I was having problems with the program so I uninstalled and reinstalled the software (I've done this before with no issues) but now my video quality is terrible, I've tried altering several settings but nothing seems to help.

Guest Uh, this program worked until yesterday. I was done editing and wanted to convert it into WMV. It then said "No Items To Show". Please help. My YouTube subs are begging for a video D: smile

Guest "No items to show" - uninstall and reinstall. But be sure to make back-up copies of your project first. This has always worked for me. However, I just made a comment how I did this recently and the video quality has decreased considerably after I reinstalled it, presumably a new update is responsible for this problem. Whatever the reason, I'm seriously disappointed.

Guest How to make the project smaller? It converted very large files and I can't save them with Windows Movie Maker.

Guest I recently downloaded this. I do not recommend it. My videos are recorded, when using their screen capture mode, but when I play them back, the audio will be fine, but the video is speeding up. It has ruined hours of work. This has happened 4 times now. Unless there is something that I am missing, this is simply a poor program.
