Bernina, Janome and elna home embroidery machine software, are actually Wilcom software, and made and developed by Wilcom for them. So maybe it, just depends on how you would phase it?

Embird editing without the Studio portion, is not digitizing software, as it cannot create any embroidery designs by autodigitizing or any manual digitizing, but embird Studio can.

So maybe rather like comparing apples to oranges unless you compare just right and like kind of items and functions.

I think any digitizing software is only as good as the person using it, as if you never figure it out and don't practice a lot and use it fully, it's not going to do you much good. But at the same time, if money is not the main object and you are going to spend the time and learn something, and actually use it, I would always prefer the higher level tool myself.

I am sure that Wilcom commercial level software, of the right level, if you actually use and avail yourself of everything in it, is the higher tool.

Personally, if I had a choice and was really going to use everything in something, and do Commercial Digitizing for a living, to make money with as a business, or just as my highest form of "art tool" then I actually would prefer the higher tool each time, and my software to be made by Pulse, Wilcom or Compucon, at whatever the highest of levels there, but that is just my one person's individual opinion.

Since you already know and have one, maybe even just down load and try the embird Studio on the free trail version (even though I don't think it will actually let you save as a computer file and sew out) and then maybe you could more get a feel for it, and see how you would like it, just that way even.
