Unreliable and extremely glitchy

I was previously able to get this product up and running and was working fine. But as i continued using the app it started becoming very glitchy and laggy, even losing some of the work i had created on the app despite saving them. Eventually, the product would not even open when i tried to start it. Very disappointing.

happy 2b happy ,

getting better all the time

Great software for experienced editors. I use the studio version on the desktop and use this free version for doing simple work on the fly. Users will need to learn how to work with nodes, which are simply another form of layering and set up DELs and plan work output. The software links to digital info rather than saving large files, which matters for solid state laptops. This saves drive on long renders. Colour grading is excellent with scopes. Especially important as eyes adjust to screens and vision grading is always subjective. If you are experiencing issues during render, drop down to proxy renders; editing 101.
