First impressions of the editor
I am a Premiere Pro editor but have found their product to be way too expensive for a non-professional. This software looks very similar so the learning curve seems like it should be small.
The first thing I did in the program was import an iphone video. The program requires QT which I didn't have but once I installed it, the video loaded. I clipped it in the source monitor (where is the scrobble bar???) and put it into the timeline...but the video in the program monitor was blown way up in size! Why??? I poked around for 10 minutes and couldn't find a way, other than manually resizing by eye, to fit it to the window. There's probably a really simply solution to this but there shouldn't have to be a solution.
I'd built my computer to rip it up while using Premiere, and it does. I can keep both monitors at full res and not experience any jitter. But for some reason this program won't play back any video smoothly, even at the lowest resolution. I'm hoping there's a setting somewhere that says 'check here to play video smoothly' because I really like how this package works, at least from the billing end.
I'm hoping someone will chime in to help me get this set up properly. OK if not, mostly wanted to point out some of the eccentricities of the program for a new-to-this-software but experienced editor.
