No. There is no side by side comparison site that I am aware of. Occasionally video stores will set them up for some sort of comparison, but it's usually on a limited basis, as part of a sales or upgrade. Also, sometimes a particular product will go out on 'tour' and in the demonstration, they will do a side by side comparison with their major competitor. You can bet that the hosting NLE comes off better, so I hardly think of that as a fair sampling.

Most of the Video Magazines will do an 'end of the year shoot-out' comparing system features... but again that's an annual thing.

You'll just have to do your homework, download some demos and try them out.

Lynne: it's probably most convenient to simply download the demo versions of each program from the manufacturers' web sites, but if you want to see everything shown in one place you might try coming to the WEVA convention in Las Vegas this August:


Also note that while there are occasionally some good reviews about various editing software choices, no such review can tell you which program is going to suit you best. You simply have to try them for yourself, after doing your research to understand some of the basic differences between programs.

I like the idea of the WEVA convention. You see, my problem is that my current computer just isn't up to the task of handling demo versions of any of those programs mentioned before. It does strike me as odd that a place like B&H or other major sellers don't have a standing display. But what do I know?
