OK, not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but OnOne software are currently offering Perfect Effects 8 Premium edition for free here
I'm not (or wasn't, until I signed up for the software) on their mailing list, but got a key and download straight away. Also, not sure how long this is going to run for as they say that it is a time limited offer.
I have downloaded and installed the software and had a quick play and it looks OK, but can't say any more than that. (P.S. running on Windows 8 with 4Gb of RAM).
