The Boston Globe's review of the recently released : "Free video editing programs like Apple's iMovie and Microsoft's Windows Movie Maker don't have anything to fear from Avid Free DV...Avid's offering is a pale version of its robust Express line of editing products...But for the merely curious, this software is a nightmare. It isn't intuitive. It obfuscates its functions with jargon. And its interface is daunting. That's quite a checklist of negatives when you take into account there are no tutorials to explain the workings of the program, its help files are unhelpful, and there's no technical support."
