I am enjoying Pinnacle Studio Plus, version 9. Although many people report it to be a buggy program, I don’t have any problems with it at all. It’s easy to use and has a very intuitive interface. I’ve tried others, like Sony Vegas Movie Studio, but Pinnacle Studio Plus seems to me to be a lot easier to handle while doing almost as many things as other programs. By the way, Pinnacle Studio not only allows editing, but also authoring and DVD burning capabilities.
There are MANY other editing programs out there that can do many more things than Pinnacle Studio. But the trade-off is they’re often (not always) more difficult to learn and use, they’re often (not always) more expensive, and they often (not always) require a separate program for DVD authoring and burning.
If you do go the way of Pinnacle Studio, I would recommend the Plus version, which costs about $100, which is $20 more than the standard version and contains more things. At a higher priceyet is Pinnacle Studio Media Suite (I think that’s what it’s called), but I’m not familiar with it.
But again, I’ve read complaints online about installation and other problems with Pinnacle Studio. But then again, you never read about when people like me are NOT having problems, right?
