Creator's commentsUsed it many times, never a disappointment. Can be a little tricky to learn, but has a great set of feature for analising and comparing results. Video editing is really easy - for dummies, actually.Great tool, but encountered lots of bugs - lost sync on the videos / audio / webcam and took me a lot of time to recover from it.I´m a PC, haven't had the chance to test it.I´m not sure if it works for long video sessions.Not sure if it works for usability, yet. Just checking.
