Videospin - first experiences

Some first experiences with this freeware: The general interface is very much based on the Pinnacle studio software and easy to use. Videospin has got quite a few limitations:
- there is no device control, so therefore no chance to import video footage from a mini-DV camera
- the video codecs are limited and you need to pay 15 Euro to upgrade for the mpeg 2 and 4 codec (something you would need to import from DVD / memory card / harddisc videocameras and to export to youtube and similiar video portals).
You can still use it to edit still images, avi files. You can put easily subtitles on and overlay it with sound but without all codecs it is too limited. So free but not really free!

Check it out yourself and mail us your experience.
