just that I have a simple mind, hehe. Is Vegas Studio doing what you want/need? Unless Power Director is one level above Vegas, basically they are all about the same.
You might try their website and see if there are trial for the software; that might be the best way to find out.
I recently got a camcorder and started using Vegas to edit. I like it a lot and didn't think it was overly difficult to start using, but I'm about to get a new computer, and I've heard that PowerDirector 7 is better. I don't want to install Vegas if something else is better... wondering if anyone has recommendations if you've tried both? Thanks.
