Computers won’t be problem-free until someone invents an unbreakable rubber band with which to wind them up!
Software won’t be problem-free until someone figures out a way to keep humans out of the process! (Uh-oh, I’m starting to sound like a sequel to “The Matrix” – possible title: “The Matrix Regurgitated”.)
That’s why God invented things like “the patch”, “the bug fix”, and “the update”. Pinnacle is not alone in software bugs and the need to patch patches. Heavens no, you are far from being the only one to have a problem. Fortunately, I have no problems so far with Studio 9 running the 9.3.5 patch. But as I mentioned in my last post, I’m too cowardly at this point to download 9.4.2. You’re right, a perfect world would be boring. But at this point, based on what I’ve read on the Pinnacle user forums about 9.4.1 and 9.4.2, I think I’ll wait a while. For the moment, I’ll settle for a little more boredom and a little less hair-pulling-out excitement from possible frustration.
That’s not to say that everyone, including myself, should automatically expect a problem with the 9.4.2 patch. I have no clue why some people have problems and some (probably most) don’t. Software interaction? Hardware mis-configuration? Who knows. And here you are having a problem without having patched anything.
I still stand by what I’ve written in other posts in Videomaker’s forums. Compared to other video editors/DVD authoring programs with similar features, Studio is the easiest to use with the most intuitive user interface. If I had problems, I may feel differently, but so far so good. I’ve tried others, and my head is still spinning.
Whoops…time to wind the rubber band. Oh drat, it broke again…
