A Pinnacle product that works well... What a tweest!

Kyle E., Newegg
17 August 2009
  • Summary: I wish I would have purchased it on here instead of direct from Pinnacle. Could have saved $25. Oh well.
  • Pros: Supports HD video encoding which is a huge plus when using my new HD cam. Has a slew of different codecs, almost all of which can be customized to tailor fit your needs. Lots of excellent scene transitions and intro screens/animations. Keeps track of changes very well even after saving. Overall v...
  • Cons: Recording video is still an epic pain in the rear. Preview window even after people have asked for the past 6 years, still cannot be resized or maximized. So if you're wanting to record gameplay from say an Xbox 360 or PS3, you're better off using VirtualDub and then Pinnacle for the editing. Oth...

Poor customer service

  • Cons: After spending several days on a project, the system wouldnt open it anymore. It was still there in the projects list, just wouldnt open & gave error mess. This happened 5 more times.

8 February 2009
  • Summary: I looked for patches ect and nothing to fix this that I could find. Once you go down to sp2 it would not let you put sp3 back on. I don't know what the deal with that is, but I would avoid this and buy a different brand. From the sounds of it, the version before this one had a lot of bugs too.
  • Pros: Couldn't tell ya.
  • Cons: Window xp sp2 only. It will not install with sp3. I rememoved sp3 down to sp2 and installed this only to start getting BSOD on occasion. My computer slowed down overall. Other programs started giving me problems with freezing ect. It was just one thing after another. I rememoved this and wouldn't...

Studio 12 Plus - Bra för nybörjare men även för proffsen

JHJH, Ciao
12 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Ett mycket bra nybörjarprogram som jag fortfarande använder efter 7 års videoredigering. Men nu har jag det mer som kompliment, Men dess enkelhet gör att jag använder den när jag ska göra enklare redigeringar eller DVD-menyer.
  • Pros: enkelt, smidigt, många mallar
  • Cons: Bara två videospår

Pinnacle Studio Plus V12

Peter U., fotemia.de
2 August 2010
  • Summary: Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, einfache, intuitive Bedienung und viele Voreinstellungen, die es Anfängern relativ einfach machen. Sobald man aber auch nur ansatzweise professionelem Videoschnitt tendiert ist das Programm ungeeignet.

Pinnacle Studio Plus V12

Harald K., fotemia.de
2 March 2010
  • Summary: Da ich viele Filme schneide und mit Effekten bearbeiten möchte hat mir mein altes Programm nicht ausgereicht. Nach langer Suche bin ich auf Pinnacle gestoßen. Den Namen kannte ich schon und wusste das dieser für Qualität steht. Also kaufte ich mir die Software.
