Good morning just wondered if anybody had used this and how it compares with MoviePlus?

I don't know of anyone who has used it as it's not a common programme.  Unfortunately there's no trial download to see if it suits you.

Ashampoo are selling Movie Studio Pro 2 for 70% off ($23.99 instead of $79.99) for the next three days. At that price, it isn't a huge waste of money if it fails to meet your expectations.

Ashampoo' s specials must vary around the globe.

Currently MS Pro2 shows for me NZ$99 or Upgrade NZ$29.68.

The only special is Franzis Photo Zoom Classic 5 down from NZ114.99 to NZ$33.31.

Confusing.

Try here, Eric: https://www.ashampoo.com/nz/nzd/mar

I see the product listed on that page (on the left-hand side, about a third of the way down) as being reduced from NZ$99 to NZ$29.68. It doesn't say anything about that being an upgrade price.

This is the UK page: https://www.ashampoo.com/uk/gbp/mar

Movie Studio Pro 2 is listed on that page as being reduced from £49.99 to £14.99.

Interesting.  This is the page I originally got https://www.ashampoo.com/en/nzd/pin/0482/multimedia-software/Ashampoo-Movie-Studio-Pro-2

There's nothing on the page about special deals.  I wouldn't have known the page Alfred found existed.

It seems Ashampoo' s marketing websites are confusing just like those of our favourite software!

When I clicked on that link just now, the page showed

Price NZ$ 99.00 *
recommended retail price

with buttons for 'Buy now' and 'Upgrade NZ$ 29.68', but a second or two later a panel about their hundred million installations celebration popped up, with a 'Proceed to bargains' button that goes here: https://www.ashampoo.com/ashadcl.php?i=881. That redirects to https://www.ashampoo.com/en/nzd/mar.

Aha, the mystery is solved.  I don't get the panel until I turn off Adblock Plus which I use in Firefox and reload the page.

Moral of the story - Ad Blockers aren't always a good thing...............

I wonder what else I've been missing out on for the past few years!

Oh my gosh it's like opening up a new world.  All sorts of things are appearing on my screen since I tuned off Adblock Plus!
