- What is in your budget? In other words, are a spoiled rich kid that just wants a several hundred dollar software or are you like most people and just want something that delivers? Choose whats right for you. Do not buy anything that you might regret later, and vice versa.
- What are the specifications of that particular piece of software? Will it run fine on your operating machine or will it just crash it? Do you have enough hard drive space to store the program on your computer? These are one of the more serious questions you have to ask yourself before making a purchase.
- Finally, those this filmmaking software promises to do exactly what you need? No since in buying the software if it isn’t going to deliver on the goods.
