Instability is one thing, but when I found that I could not export my hour-long video to file or DVD without losing audio sync I had to move on — interestingly enough right back to Kino, the video app I started with. I had passed on it originally because its interface was too foreign to this former Final Cut user, but a sober second look got me figuring it out pretty quick…
Upon first boot I was walked through a helpful set-up wizard, after which the app promptly crashed. Oops. But a quick restart revealed the closest dead-ringer yet to this Mac refugee’s familiar Final Cut Pro.

The problem may well be that my all-in-one Lenovo isn’t quite up to the task of rendering video and audio edits in real time; you could also make a fairly compelling case that I barely know what I’m doing.
