Hi Al,

We tried Studio and had a lot of trouble with hang-ups/crashes during rendering. Were you able to overcome that? To be fair, some compression settings and formats performed better than others. It took us a very long time to come up with a combination that was fairly reliable yet offered a file size where we could put several 7 - 8 minute videos onto a CD that didn't take hours and hours to render.

The newer versions will output to virtually anything except Quicktime.
It's also relatively inexpensive.
