We have no experience with the Pro Movie Studio - From the lastes list I
saw (see below) that one appears to be untested. However we can confirm
that Video Basics from ATI DOES NOT work with CUSeeME. All seems to go
well except that the video appears as a negative ghost-like picture -
entirely unusable.

Here is the list posted from an earlier posting:
