      I’ve heard that pinnacle isn’t that great of software.. I’m just starting out with my new camera, and it’s really just a home video camera so I don’t need to go off spending $1000 on final cut pro 4. I was thinking of getting Pinnacle Studio 9, but after hearing that it isn’t so great, I would like some feedback. Used any pinnacle products? How are they? Recommend anything different? Thanks

      Pinnacle products that I have used have a nagging tendency to have problems. My recommendation is don’t even read the Pinnacle box. I ditched studio 9 after many problems and bought Screenblast Movie Studio. It works and will do what you need and more. Download a free demo and try it out. I wish someone had pointed Screenblast out to me earlier. Good Luck

      I keep hearing everyone talking about how bad Pinnacle Studio 9 is. I have great luck with Studio on both versions 8 and 9. Screenblast is also a nice low cost video editor. Most of the lower cost video editors are all similar, it mostly just depends on the user preference. I do admit that I hear a lot more complaints about Studio than any other editor, but then again they do outsell the others. You might want to check out Ulead. They have a nice editor for a decent price. You can get it for like $10.00 at Tiger Direct.
      Hope this has been of help.
      Happy editing!

      I have used Pinnacle Studio 7, 8 and 9. For years it was all I knew and used. Studio does have a lot of good features and I like editing with it. It’s disadvantage is that each new version requires about a year to work out the bugs. Even though I have it, I won’t work with Studio 9, but Studio 8 is okay now.

      But the best value by far is Magix Movie Edit Pro 2004 for $100. It’s almost never advertised here in the USA, but it is sold here, has many users and has been reviewed by Videomaker Magazine. It’s a very complete program that includes dvd burning and excellent audio features. The web forum is active and questions are answered quickly by knowlegeable people.

      Magix MEP 2004 has so many features that it’s impossible to list them all. Even if you someday buy a more expensive program, you’ll still have use for Magix. The second cd is worth the price of the whole program because of its video clips, sound effects, video overlays and music.
