    Interesting tutorial, but it was difficult to follow because the Tutors need to explain at a slower pace. I’m a little skeptical about purchasing the software for fear that I may not be able to follow the tutorial.

    Good video, if it is too fast just go back and watch again. Is there something to make the curser stand out? I found it hard to figure out what you were clicking on.

    Speech is far to fast for teaching , just slow down. It is obvious that the commentator is not a teacher. Other wise it would be an excellent tutorial.

      I suppose you could always use the rewind feature, pause and play, or take notes. I prefer to use the manual.

    Background music is very distracting

    Nice tutorial but a bit fast to follow along without having to pause so much. Also, I am having trouble editing the title and other text on the timeline. I don’t see anywhere to edit them. How do you edit or add text on the timeline without having to leave VideoStudio X9? I am trying to use the broadcast overlay and need to add the text to them. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any tutorial about working with overlays, let alone the news or broadcast ones.
