More info. 64-bit what? Service Packs? What error are you getting. Also what did you have for lunch?

 

 

No errors from install...But I wanted a 64 bit version of Roxio!!! I guess I read through the features and requirements to anxiously.

I think there's a very small handful of apps that are pure 64 bit - heck even Microsoft don't do one

 

The program WILL work on a 64 bit machine

Personally, I don't know of ANY under $99 commercial application that is 100% 64 bit. There might be some freeware or shareware apps that are 64bit.

Actually, Corel VideoStudio has two installation scripts: one for the 32-bit software, and the other for the 64-bit which indeed is a "100% 64 bit."

 

There are also a few other non-Corel/Roxio apps out there >$99 that are pure 64-bit.

 

I believe that that 64-bit apps will make a noticeable difference, especially if one is multitasking while a huge video file is being completed. That, to me, translates into an application that will run smoother, with no or fewer hiccups, and that's probably because the software is optimized to take full advantage of the latest crop of multi-core processors.

 

I'd be willing to be that the next version of Creator will include a 64-bit installation script, keeping the software in step with VideoStudio.

Ben - this thread is over 2 years old and 2 versions back (and there still isn't a 64 bit version, so you lost your bet ;))

I think he means the next version after NXT, so Corel has two years to take up the challenge.

Hi guys. Yes, I was talking about the next version after NXT; and no I didn't realize the thread dated back to 2010, so you can cut a Rookie some slack on that one.

 

I read a few recent threads over the last few days where people understate the merit of 64-bit applications. Notwithstanding that I picked a two-year old thread, the issue is still very much current; and since Corel already has a native 64-bit video suite in its arsenal, I doubt it will take two years for the next version to come out. I don't know where that 'two year' comes from, probably from Roxio's past practice; but at Corel, if you look and PaintShop Pro for example, software revisions are much more frequent.

 

What I'd like to hear from my guru friends is constructive comments on the pros and cons of 64-bit applications ...

 

Any thoughts!

I assume you run a W-7 x64 bit system?

 

Would you grab a screen shot of your Corel VideoStudio program files showing the path like my example below?

No I can't. I a trial version, didn't like the UI, and got rid of it. And yes, I'm running Win 7 64 bit.

 

Corel doesn't advertise it (Corel VideoStudio program) as a x64 bit application and if it was I'm sure they would.

 

What makes you think it's a x64 bit program?

From the Corel web site:

 

 

Superior Video Editing Software - Corel VideoStudio X5 Ultimate

 

Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows Vista® or Windows® XP with latest service packs installed (32-bit or 64-bit editions); Intel® Core™ Duo 1.83 GHz, AMD ...

 

www.corel.com

www.corel.com/corel/jump/us/en/.../video

 

That's a little misleading if you read that quickly. The 64 bit refers to Windows 64 bit; not the program.

 

 

I'm trying to chat with an agent now but they are slow connecting.

 

Depending on the computer, memory and video card, 64 bit CAN be faster. It doesn't make it less prone to issues with installing and running the program. Most of the improvement is from the ability to use all the installed memory; to a lesser degree using all the computer cores efficiently.

 

Speed is what is marketed; not fool proof editing. Are you willing to pay the extra to gain a couple of minutes of extra speed?

 

Edit: from live chat : "No, There is no 64 bit VideoStudio".

(32-bit or 64-bit editions)

 

What does your bold text 64 bit supposed to mean?

 

Look at my PaitShop Pro x5 says the same thing!

 

Microsoft® Windows® 8, Windows® 7, Windows Vista® or Windows® XP with the latest service packs installed (32-bit or 64-bit editions)

 

What is it, a 32 bit application!

Yep, I just edited my post above. I did not bold the 64 bit; it was already bolded when I copied it.

Uncle Ben & sknis, I just downloaded the trial, only one download available.

 

When I go to install it it is a 32 bit application and will install to the x86 program folder on my W-7 x64 Ultimate box!

 

So Uncle Ben, there is no 64 bit Corel VideoStudio program, and your download was a 32 bit too.

Well, I stand corrected. This here also misled me: " New! Advanced multi-core acceleration: VideoStudio Pro X5 employs multi-threading to fully harness the processing power of today’s multi-core PCs. By assigning different software procedures to different cores, X5 generates speed gains that are significantly more pronounced than simply enabling the additional memory addressing capabilities of 64-bit systems." This is a quote from Corel's initial press release on VS X5.

 

I understood this to mean, obviously erroneously so, that it was a 64-bit application.

 

Would two lbs or rice make up for it? :(
