Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12: Video-editing software is still solid, but adds little oomph

Among consumer-level video-editing applications, Sony's Movie Studio Platinum is one of the most capable, offering more features than most of its competitors do. That existing wealth may be why version 12 ($95, 15-day free trial) doesn't add many new features: In pure breadth of ability, there just wasn't much to add to a program in this price range.

How many bits for 64 bits?

Sony does claim that the application is now 64-bit-compatible, like its pricier stablemate, Vegas Pro 11, so it can take advantage of more system RAM. I can confirm that the application did install to the (64-bit) Programs folder on my Windows 7 64-bit system. The only other 64-bit video editor that costs about the same is CyberLink PowerDirector 11.
