You’re more than welcome, Curly.
If you do purchase Pinnacle Studio (preferably at least the Plus version), check out the forums on Pinnacle’s web site. Some very knowledgeable people post very helpful things. You’d be surprised at how much more versatile Studio is than it seems on the surface. Some more complicated, more expensive programs do things that Pinnacle doesn’t. I say, so what? Unless you’re going to do some serious professional editing with a lot of extremely sophisticated effects, Pinnacle Studio is MORE than enough. And there are some fancy things that some programs do automatically that Studio, at first, appears it won’t do, but there are workarounds that CAN accomplish what looked like was impossible. That’s where the Pinnacle web site forums really come in handy. I’ve read many things on the forums that really suprised me and made me think, “Why didn’t I think of that??”
