I downloaded disc 1 then it asked for disc 2, then it asked for disc 3 which is the
bonus disc. The bonus disc asked if i wanted to download it, yes or no. I kept clicking yes but nothing happened. I finally click on no and the downloading continued to the finish. When I tried to use my new movie maker, it said i needed to down load 10.7 then 10.8 in that order. I searched the internet and finally found them. I also found out that their isn't any support for Pinnacle 10.0 on down, so you're on your own. My problem now is, when i hit capture, a window pops up saying " make sure your camera is turned on and it's in the play position and make sue your firewire is connected (1394 port) I even used a different one but the window with the instructions still pop up. I've sent e-mail's to Pinnacle but as of now, NO HELP. This is why i'm not satisfied.
Of course, if you read these reviews, you would not consider throwing your money down the drain. If reviewers can save one poor customer, this will be a good thing. Most customers who just see the marketing will only be that- poorer- and frustrated, angry, disappointed.
Pinnacle has never released a stable product. They have never had technical support.
I have finally resorted to completely removing their products from my computer.
For such relatively modest prices on most conventional consumer hardware there is no perfect software. Digital video editing has come a long ways, but still has far to go to be friendly and reliable.
Consider looking into a more comprehensive disc-burning suite like Nero or Roxio Creator. I had 12 years of accumulated video to edit, and never could make more than a bit of a DVD with Studio. I was so frustrated that I let the tapes accumulate year after year hoping they would come up with a decent upgrade. Finally I made 80 hours of DVD a reality with Nero6. It was more basic than all the bells and whistles promised by Pinnacle, but it's great. And Nero throws in an enormous amount of other CD and DVD audio and video editing features Pinnacle will never offer. I understand Roxio may have a little more friendly interface and have not used that product.
I wish I could give them zero stars, or 0.01 stars. If you don't own Studio, do go there- ever. If you do, trash it and get something that works.
The final straw today was trying to transfer some pre-Christmas video I recently took to my computer (worked fine) and add a soundtrack (crashed the program). Figuring the 10.1 patch would solve my issues, I downloaded this behemoth. 2/3 of the way through applying the patch, like the software it was designed to fix, it hung. After rebooting and applying the patch again, it "took." When I attempted to re-do my editing chores, I discovered that all the voices and sounds associated with my video was now missing - plus the soundtrack I was trying to add when the system crashed wasn't there either.
After wasting > three hours on a project that left me with nothing to show for my efforts, I gave up. What a horrible P.O.S. (Piece Of Sofware). It *almost* makes me wish I had bought a MAC - at least it works.
Review Summary: Don't waste your money on this half-baked product. Try ANYTHING else first.
