Not for a newbie

  • Summary: If you have a strong background in videography this might be some top notch software. If not, be a little skeptical about shelling out over a "c" note...
  • Pros: Does a lot of stuff
  • Cons: Getting it to do all that stuff the way you want

Love/Hate Relationship

Kevin N., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I've used many different brands of software for video editing over the years, I thought I'd try Pinnacle's again, since it was on a pretty big discount. Years ago their software had an intuitive interface, but was very buggy, so I stopped buying it. Well, nothing has changed. Whether or not this is derived from the top of the line Avid product, it still crashes way too often, so I learned to save often working on my first project.
  • Pros: Love the Interface.
  • Cons: Hate the crashes.

  • Summary: I had no problem with installation. Imported the video from my two hd cameras without having to do any conversion. mts format on one I believe.
  • Pros: Imports lots of the weird hd formats
  • Cons: Things that were simple in older pinnacle software products are hidden in this one.

I've used better

Ralph B., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I probably should have went with the basic setup of studio instead of the ultimate... I don't need all these bells & whistles for typical editing... *shrugs* whatta gonna do.
  • Pros: It works with Windows 7 and has all the bells and whistles with a nice look...
  • Cons: Nice looks don't keep it running, it constantly crash's right in the middle of a project... my version 10 worked soooooooooooooo much better but won't work on 7 so weigh it out... stick with XP and a good version or go with 7 and hope it don't crash.
