There was a patch released earlier this month for Avid Studio and from what I read it seems like it was also for Studio 15. And again, from what I am reading it seems to have corrected this problem you mentioned.
Probably depends on what format you are rendering to. There are many HD formats. Rendering to an AVCHD file takes many time longer to render than to an mpeg format such as HDV. You will get nearly identical picture quality, but the AVCHD file will usually be MUCH smaller, sometimes close to half the size of HDV, and often supporting a higher resolution to boot.
My computer in Vegas renders HDV(.m2t) files at about double speed of normal video. Rendering to an AVCHD (.m2ts) file takse my computer about 3-4x normal speed. I have used studio in the past and I know all these options exist there as well.
It was an AVCHDfile.I edited the samefile in both Corel and Pinnacle, and Pinnacle took hours to make a time lapse video compared to just minutes from Corel.
I tried the Avid patch but it was not applicable to Pinnacle. I am downloading Avid Studio trial as I write this. I like the simple interface of Pinnacle but would like to be able to add more audio/video overlays. I tried Adobe premier trial version but would need someone to teach me the basics before I could use it effectively.
Avid Studio IS what Pinnacle Studio should have been in the first place. I was actually dumping Pinnacle due to instability issues/frustration when AS came out. You will love it but it is a bit different but with a little practice you’ll figure it out.
Take a look at my other suggestion about exporting to DVD. Useful tip to keep in your back pocket.
I quit Pinnacle or Avid with the poor Studio 14 version and use Magix Movie Edit 17 plus I come back with Avid Studio 1 and ugrade it I found this product very very stable and I cannot beleive my eye. The product is very different than Studio but easy to use. Simplicity is my first rule in video.
May be this is the first good new for Avid
