Can't open iPhone 5 videos. Says that the file is corrupt or I don't have necessary codec. However these video files play without any problems with other software on the same PC.
what a shame :(

Movie .avi placed in. I was given a few options for cutting within the movie project. The only save file possible for this program is .wmv. If only using one format mov, avi, or mpg would make more sense. Giveaways have been done though for video converting so if you have one of those you can make it something else. After it was done rendering there are three icons, but no pop up to tell me what they are. I pressed the "Play" button which I assumed would play the file and the program crashed. The file came out ok though so I'm not sure what that was about. For the price it is actually a good deal if you were to buy. Their advanced one, which really means you can save in other formats other than .wmv is only like $20 to upgrade to. That's better than any other easy use prog for film editing. It does not work great for pictures set to music since each picture has to have a transition assigned to it manually.

well it crashed while I tried to add an mp3 the length of the as yet unrendered "movie" so since I wrote support at Ashampoo, will wait and see if they email me a solution. may have to stick with slideshow studio 2013 which is so easy and so fast and has awesome results, don't really know why I downloaded something I don't need. Well, Imma girl so I get lots of stuff I don't need. Good luck all! hope you all have bigger monitor display screens than my 1366x768. cheers, kathy

ok got all my pictures loaded not a problem with convenient drag and drop. I have 1366 x 768 display resolution to my Compaq CQ62 laptop and with the program not on full screen but in the minimized mode, grabbed corners, top, bottom, moved it around, it will only get so small then stop allowing changes to window size. and it does not fit on my screen. sides are ok, it is top to bottom where I encounter size issues - I cannot access the bottom button controls, see just the very top of them, cannot get far enough down into a button to make a click work. SO. I have a whole project of pictures loaded and cannot go further. HELP ME.

163.42 is the size of the trial version on their website; todays' offering is sized at 95.2 mb - wonder the difference? just sayin'. Think I will download anyway, perhaps for future use, have no home movies at this time but was happy to see smaller size here than on product page.

I have Ashampoo Slideshow Studio 2013 and it is the absolute best I have used, even better than the pro software I have tried, it does not cut off top/bottom/sides etc of various sized artwork I run through it. I uploaded 2 I made to my YouTube account (icu109) of my composites and am VERY happy, awesome outcomes; also it makes small file sizes whereas others with cheesy transitions handed me a gig production to upload. If this is anything comparable in quality to the above, grab it. I don't do this type of work, just do 2D stills to slideshow productions. This is a great company, I have had many of their products and have been very happy with them. Cheers, kathy

Ads or not, Ashampoo makes GREAT products. I gave up on Nero bloatware years ago in favor of Ashampoo Burning Studio and haven't looked back. I have found that no matter what product I use by them, it works great! Is it THE greatest in every case? What IS "greatest." Remember, what is one man's meat is another man's poison. Personal opinion? Of course. So let me say that of all the software lines I've tried, Ashampoo has one of the steadiest track records in my experience. And I'm a Microsoft Trainer--trust me, MS could learn a thing or two from Ashampoo.

Ashampoo regularly give away top quality software and registering with them allows you to access your product keys in the event that you need to reinstall the program.
Yes they do send you e-mails from time to time telling you about new software & upgrades but that's a small price to pay for what you are getting from them for free?

I personally enjoy the Ashampoo line of software. They are easy to use and don't really need any kind of knowledge to jump right in. Yea, I have a problem with the number of "upgrade cheap" ads they send to the email, but it's pathetically simple to filter them into a seperate folder or simply mark as spam. Bam! Problem solved. While I don't do much in the way of video, I downloaded it and tried it out with the few video's I've taken. What have I learned? I'm not gonna get a professional job doing this :p Thanks Ashampoo and GAOTD

greetings:
downloaded from this site Ashampoo movie studio 2013.
It insisted i must register at their site to get a registration key, did that and copy/pasted that key in the setup popup asking for registration.
Now from the application (MovieStudio2013.exe) all i get is the large apparently Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 (with file | edit | settings | myashampoo | help in the top right corner) and am UNABLE to access ANY of those top right functions due to an IRRITATING nag "upgrade now"/"software deals" popup that blocks access.
The program is 'supposed' to be lifetime unlimited (as indicated in the registration process.)

Hi Everyone,
Thought I would try this out! I have been a user of Ashampoo for a few years now, and love most all of there software and Prices! I thought I would try Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 on my old HP Lap-top and get the results if it ran and was any good?
Downloaded and installed Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 on my HP Lap-Top Upgraded to 4GB RAM and a 2.8MHz Intel Core II Duo, with a SSD 1.25 GB System drive and a 1 TB D: Drive for Applications and Data Storage. I use a 3TB External Drive for System and Data Backup! Running Vista 32Bit. Installed Fast and clean and Registration was fast and easy as I am already a Registered user of the Ashampoo WEB Site and the software was up and running in a snap! No errors or problems to report.
I was a little disappointed by this release as it is lacking a lot of features that most users would like to have? I can see that this is in part because Ashampoo would like for you to upgrade to the Ashampoo Movie Studio Version! That is full featured and can do about anything with a video file or movie. I can understand everyone needs to make a buck and that’s cool! I mean for $14.99 Dollars is not hardly going to brake the bank but I wish they would have given more futures in the 2013 version as it would have made for a better test and experiment version before you pay for the upgrade! For a new user or someone that just wants a quick editor for some home movies etc. the FREE 2013 version is just great! Very easy to use and a vary quick learning curve! Also, They offer a free 30 day, No questions asked refund of the $14.99 dollars if you should decide its Not for you! All and All I think it’s a very good deal for a very good, high quality video editing application.
The other thing is all the complaints about SPAM mail form Ashampoo? As I stated I have been a registered user for several years and have paid for and use many of there Software Applications and love all of them! I might receive, On average 3 or 4 Emails a week for them! And its just the news letter and special deals of there software and I am interested in these Emails! As I look for deal on software I am thinking of buying! I have never received any spam mail from them! Or any companies associated with Ashampoo!
You can Stop the emails any time by simply logging in to there WEB Site and uncheck the Send Me News letters and or Specials etc. and anything that’s might be spam goes in my spam folder and is deleted! After I read The news letter or special offerings I just delete them! What’s the big deal? Enough on that, I want to know about how others like or don’t like the software offered by GOTD? Not pointless accusations that are unfounded? Or at least I have never seen any information where Ashampoo has sold or given users email address to other vendors or SPAM e-mailers! Lets keep on topic and give valuable information that others can use. Soap box mode: OFF

After testing and even though a little disappointed, I still feel that Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 should get 2 thumbs Up! For all the great software they offer and if not FREE! At very reasonable prices!
Thank You!, Ashampoo for offering Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 for FREE today on GOTD! Big Thanks to GOTD for all the hard work you all do in bringing us Applications like Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 for FREE! To Test, Use, And Play with for as long as we like! I’m buying the upgrade for $14.99! that’s a steal! Thank You!
Everyone, Take Care, But! Always Have Fun! (o; Rick D.

Although I have an Ashampoo account already, I'm unable to request a key for the software as I can't get past the "Step 1: Login" Page with my current password or even a new one. I've never had this (or any other) problems with Ashampoo before.
Is there any other way to request a key?

Ashampoo's marketing ploys continue to trip up Ashampoo to the point that this German software developer is losing friends rather than gaining 'em. Today's GAOTD is a classic illustration of Ashampoo at work: though this giveaway appears to be of the $44.99 Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013, there isn't any such product.

Typically, Ashampoo has stuck a current year date on old software -- in this instance, Version 1.0.4, a product presumably some ways behind the actual Ashampoo Movie Studio on sale at $49.99, otherwise known as Version 1.0.9.

Why all the playing around, Ashampoo? All that's necessary is to say: hi folks, here's an out-of-date version of one of our popular software products, it used to cost $44.99 but as it's no longer produced, we're happy to make it available free of charge if you download it today.

Sticking a current year date on old software in hope of making people think they're acquiring new software is a pretence as silly as it's unnecessary: Ashampoo actually makes good software, so has no need to keep resorting to this kind of conduct.

Installed it. Ran it. Tried to open/add a file - it crashed.

I'd tell you the error but it's so badly coded that you can't read it - a fixed window cuts off the file it crashed in!

All I got was "R6025 - pure virtual function"

So ... another AShampoo fail.

Supports multiple video format (AVI to DVD, MP4 to DVD, WMV to DVD, MKV to DVD, RM to DVD, etc…) and audio format out there (MP3 to DVD, WAV to DVD, WMA to DVD, AAC to DVD, M4A to DVD, etc….) to DVD creation simultaneously, with the ability to create ISO images from DVD as well.

As video editor it can set video brightness and contrast, trim video duration, crop video size and apply both text & image watermarks with ease.

Giovanni’s final verdict ==> This GAOTD deserves a THUMBS UP, despite its basic (at least for me) Video Editing features, not to mention that its price is just for once pretty much reasonable.

I posted what I considered to be a very polite complaint about the statement "Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 can always upgrade to Ashampoo Movie Studio", which I took to mean that this version is crippleware. It was censored and never made it past the moderator.

I'm familiar with the problem of Ashampoo spamming the email addresses that they collect. That doesn't bother me, as I use Spamgourmet.com to create a unique address for Ashampoo and disable it after I receive the serial number. Perhaps those complaining should take that approach.

I too, experienced far too many problems with this heavily bloated software on my Windows PC, with all the latest codecs.
My MP4 videos play choppy along with a loud buzzing noise. My MP2 videos would not play at all, crashed on me twice, have none of these problems in other Video editors etc. No preview screen while applying effects, could not lighten somewhat dark videos, got terrible results.
Far more is expected these days for 50.00 video editors etc. Videos loaded ok,and the Trim Feature works ok. Uninstalling this heavy one completely from pc though....

Ashampoo is terrible for spamming you to buy the rest of their products. I've tested their software in the past and once they have your e-mail address they are relentless. The software is okay, you just need to go to their site and make it very clear that you're not interested in receiving their spam..

#4: "... When attempting to stitch 2 videos together seamlessly, am unable to eliminate the gap between them. When choosing format, the DVD format says “576 PAL” where the TV format says both PAL and NTSC. I want to be able to choose NTSC for DVD format. Also has a little note below saying that my videos are at a lower resolution than the format I chose, 1080p, where my source videos are indeed 1080p recordings via my high def camera. For a low-res camera, or maybe camera-phone videos, this might do the trick, but for my purposes, these flaws make it unusable. I hope Ashraf or Giovanni can come up with alternatives."

#9: "Extremely disappointed by just how basic an editor this is, I expected it to be much better because it’s from Ashampoo and its sheer size.
It does a few transitions, rolling text, brightness and contrast, you can add music and a few effects. I can only conclude from this that they want you to upgrade to a more usable version."

.
Alternatives 1st, if you're after better video editing software I'd say Adobe, Sony, Nero, Corel, in that order. Adobe's more expensive, &/or you could opt for a subscription. Sony's home versions & Nero can be found on sale if you're patient, Nero more often than Sony. Sony's the better video editor, but you get more in the Nero package. Corel has their Roxio suite & Video Studio Pro -- Roxio is the better editor but check their forums as it's prone to issues e.g. installation problems. Lots of people like TMPGEnc software, but I'm not a huge fan -- just personal preferences. For free there are some promising *nix apps, &/or in Windows you might be able to make do with Shotcut. Out of the 1st 4 brands, Sony has the best trial version IMHO. I might get some flak for this, but if you're after doing real work with quality results, going Windows freeware &/or opensource means using several tools & learning quite a bit about video & related -- there is no complete package comparable to payware, period.

Now, as far as working with HD vs. non-HD video, the only difference is if you want to create Blu-Ray discs. Software may cost more -- Nero & Roxio for example -- but the only real difference is that whatever app may be able to create Blu-Ray discs, because video is video, regardless the frame size. If software handles regular video there's no reason it can't handle HD, short of design &/or programming errors that is. As far as recognizing your 1080P video, things can get a little weird depending on how the source video's encoded -- there are loads of standards plus lots of non-standard video on top of that. Best bet is to Google, research your source, in this case the exact make/model of camera, & find out if there are any tricks or tools etc. you need. The free Media Info can also often help. I've also run into situations where one app would say a video's 1080 60i while another labeled it 1080 30p [60 fps interlaced vs. 30 fps progressive].

You mention video DVDs... DVD video is standard, non-HD broadcast or smaller. It can be PAL or NTSC, but NTSC dominates because as I understand it most DVD players & TVs in the EU handle NTSC & PAL, while in North America it's NTSC only. If you want to put HD video on your [HD or Std.] TV the best bet is to use a media player, either a stand-alone box or built into the TV or Blu-Ray player -- the boxes start around $30 on Amazon. You cannot create Blu-Ray discs with menus comparable to the discs with movies you buy -- the software's a bit more than outrageously priced at the moment. You can create the equivalent of video DVD menus etc. on Blu-Ray using consumer & low to mid range pro software. However lots of consumer grade or home use video software has a very limited number of Blu-Ray encoding templates -- if you want to use something else you can create a AVCHD disc, which for most practical purposes is identical, but player support will vary. [Sadly you can encounter more & worse compatibility problems with media players, since some can be pretty picky, so research before you buy]

On merging, splitting, or otherwise editing video... Basically what happens is software takes a string of individual images [frames], then uses whatever encoder & writes them to a single video file. Almost always when you run into problems it's because the software you're using cannot properly decode your source video(s) to create those individual images. If/when it can't do that you can either change software or create an intermediate video or videos in a format your software can work well with. When you've got a gap between the end of one clip & the start of another in the rendered output file, the software couldn't fill that gap with images, i.e. couldn't properly decode the source to generate all the individual frames, & the cure would be to change either the software or the source video format.

* * *

#16: "“Professional results”? Pure marketing bs with no meaning. Result looks good or amateurish, depends on who’s viewing your film. Nothing to do with the tool(s) you use."

Sounds a bit like the recurring urban myth about the still photographer's camera being irrelevant. :) If that were true Nikon would have gone away a looong time ago. :) Yes, skill & talent make a difference between photographer A & photographer B, but only when they use comparable equipment. In the case of Ashampoo Movie Studio yes you can produce pro level results, but you cannot do everything a pro expects or is expected to do -- pro editors wouldn't spend thousands on software if Ashampoo Movie Studio did it all for such a cheap price.

Ashampoo Movie Studio isn't a bad app for entry level work with video... I think it's a good starter app that you may find does all you ever want or need, or if you find you like playing with this stuff, it's a good introduction before you move up the food chain. Those with lots of editing experience most likely won't be reading this or anything else on this page -- they're already using Vegas Pro or Premiere Pro or better. For those that are in between those extremes, beginner & [semi] pro, Ashampoo Movie Studio isn't at the same level as Corel's video apps or Adobe's Premiere Elements, but at its MSRP of $49.99 it's a fair bit cheaper. Ashampoo Movie Studio won't do everything with video -- no single app will -- but in it's niche or pricepoint you get a fair amount of capabilities. Long story short, if you want to edit video in Windows, getting quality results with as little learning & pain as possible, you've got to pay for the software, & like much else in life, the more you pay the more you can do.

Something like Windows Movie Maker is more focused on getting fun results, requiring nothing more than a bit of creativity, but flexibility & quality are lacking. Virtual Dub is a great [& free] linear video editor, but import & export formats are lacking [though you can import almost anything if you also use AviSynth], and it's, well, linear, meaning it'll often take more time & effort than the more usual non-linear editing app -- after all V/Dub was created before NLEs were common or popular. The free Wax editor hasn't been updated in quite a while, ShotCut's coming along but isn't always that easy, plus it lacks a lot of features, while open source editors mean running *nix.

And while you can do simple video editing with an Android tablet, working with video on a PC/laptop means you need more serious hardware, the more serious the better. A budget laptop will manage small YouTube video, an average PC/laptop will manage DVD sized video, but for HD think more along the lines of a gaming rig minus the multiple video cards. You can get by with less [usually], but odds are you won't be happy with the times involved. IOW Ashampoo Movie Studio's modest requirements are really pretty modest & practical & what you should expect.

Regarding the spam.. well, I haven't had problems with that apart from a couple of monthly emails offering discounts and informing about new products/versions.

Ashampoo GmbH & Co is a very credible company. However, they do spam you to death, so use a 'throwaway-type' email address, like I do when you want to try software.

I use some of their software products and they do work and are beneficial to me, but there are so many freeware products that I just don't see the sense in purchasing these types of audio/video tools...I just don't. I have to agree with Giovanni, WHO IS ALMOST ALWAYS CORRECT IN HIS ASSESSMENTS OF THESE OFFERINGS.

It does not tell you the difference between Movie Studio GAOTD versus its own Movie Studio software.

So, no one knows the limitations of this offer, as there is no comparison chart.

It is frustrating to have to waste time discovering its limitations.

Hence, my decision is to give this a miss.

Saving only in wmv format! Other restrictions comparing to full versijn Ashampoo Movie Studio without "2013"?

As there isn't any digicam recording in wmv I don't need to aks whether Ashampoo Movie Studio 2013 Ver. 1.0.4 is able to save processed material losslessly in same format.

Ashampoo will gladly remove you from their mailing list, so providing an email address is no big deal. I'd bet a kidney that the same folks belly-aching about their privacy here live on Facebook, posting every mundane detail of their lives and think nothing (including common decency) about their cell phone conversations in public places.

I have a slew of Ashampoo products and they are all very good. Those of you who are too stinkin' lazy to request removal from a mailing list should have to spend some money to purchase an equivalent program (guarantee that vendor will also request your email address).

Thank you, Ashampoo, for providing consistently high quality products and for making them available here, Many of us appreciate it!

I am also getting the "Your graphics card needs at least Pixel- and Vertex-Shader 2.0 support in order to function properly. Please update
your graphics drivers or upgrade your graphics card to a newer version" error message which prevents the program from starting.

I updated my video card driver and software to the latest version, but unfortunately this was not sufficient: it's a pity there isn't a workround for this issue.

Frank Cook. Irfanview will allow you to package up 100 photos and show them one at a time with your own delay in seconds (or tapping a key) and even write the whole thing onto a CD with an engine to run it. That way you can send it to Grandma or Dr Bob and they cab run it without knowing a thing about PCs.

Sorry, Melanie. I just wanted to help Frank here when I could.

I don't care if this gets thumbs down or not. (I really do though)
But I would like to thank Melanie at Ashampoo for her personal answers to people who are complaining about this and that is even though Ashampoo is giving away the software today.

What service is that! I have to admire a company with a representative like she is.

Thanks, Melanie.

@peter: At the moment your graphics card doesn´t support Pixelshader 2.0. An update of your drivers of your graphics card may solves the problem. Otherwise it seems like your hardware doesn´t support this function. Best, Melanie

I have not yet downloaded and installed this software.

Can anyone tell me - does it have the feature that lets you combine multiple still photos and create a video?

For example, if I have 100 still images from a timelapse with filenames such as photo0001.jpg, photo0002.jpg ... photo0100.jpg will it import them and create a video at either the native photo resolution or else at a reduced standard resolution?

If not, anyone know if any of the other free alternatives shown above will do the trick?

Thanks...

I have been satisfied with previous Ashampoo offers here on GAOTD, I edit a lot of burlesque show videos to promote our acts, and normally use Camtasia, which is resource heavy and produces very large output files. This although not as feature filled is easier to use. I may upgrade to the Pro version
Having a representative from Ashampoo here is a good idea and appreciated. Hopefully she can take back the request for better and more tutorial videos to those who decide on such things. Thanktou Ashampoo and thankyou GAOTD.

Graphics card not valid.

"Your graphics card needs at least Pixel- and Vertex-Shader 2.0 support in order to function properly. Please update your graphics drivers or upgrade your graphics card to a newer version".

Did anyone else fail to see this in... "System Requirements: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8"? It's too bad that the deletion of this application won't get you off their list of never ending SPAM.

Installed on new Win 7 64bit and registered, program is basic but does work for me with no problems. I see people saying its basic and not for me, or why dont they offer the pro version. yes the pro version is good and they do offer a discount for the GOTD users of today so I have compared the 2 versions and will be buying the pro version. I dont mind paying for something and I have trusted Ashampoo in the past with other giveaways.
Thanks GOTD team and Ashampoo.

I see why I didn't like this program and I uninstalled it. it don't rotate videos, it ask for 1280 resolution for your screen display most have 1080 x 768. also it runs slow, you can't drag and drop videos, and it crashes too much. I like ashampoo products, however this one is tough to sell.

@Zebedeus, That must explain the spam I get from them daily that goes right into the bit bucket. ;-)

As far as the software. They have some pretty good stuff but pass on this. My Pinnacle studio already takes up enough space and it doesn't annoy you with upgrade adds. To think of it, neither does MS's movie maker.

Note to ashampoo. There is a difference between UPDATE and UPGRADE. The nagging "update" notification I get when I spin up my PURCHASED version of Burning Studio 10 (or some other software offer) turns me off from being a future/continued customer. Just thought you should know.
