Unbelievable piece of junk
1 Star Review     

Weakness: tons: resources consumption, reliability, customer support and questionable list of new features

The only reason I decided to upgrade to this version of product was its support of WS. In addition to the support I got a memory hog which eventually shuts down my pretty good home computer with 2 GB of memory, horrible boot time, random crashes or hangs and features I would not care for in ages, like ability to keep my media on INet.

Best feature is the splash screen
1 Star Review   By member duckula - Jan 20, 2006   

Strengths: Theoretical ability to do Hi-Def, if you own the higher-price PLUS version. Nifty "send a crash report" feature.

Weakness: Slow. Buggy, crashing often. Cannot import S9 projects. Very high system requirements. Definitely not ready for primetime.

Pinnacle Studio 10 has a very impressive list of features. However, most of these features fail to offset the problem that this product only works in a superficial manner. Once you start actually USING the product and start looking in detail at what the product creates (when it does actually create something beyond "Export Error" messages and crash dumps), you will most likely find that the video that you just created has something wrong with it. It may be subtle, it may be obvious, but it won't be what you specified you wanted. Menus may not work as desired. You may have jumping, flashing, or flickering at transitions. You may have titles that move or resize themselves. You may simply have jerky or otherwise funny-looking video. But what you will NOT have is a product worth showing. Which means Studio 10 is NOT a product worth buying.

Pinnacle Version 10
2 Star Review   By member Roger8100 - Dec 21, 2005   

Strengths: frequently upgraded

Weakness: Crashes frequently without notice.

This package crashes without notice during editing, it is extremely slow moving between video and transitions even with AMD 64 bit processor & 1 GB Ram. Customer svc. is only avail. via e-mail which does nothing if in a hurry. I am very unhappy with version 10, I suggest staying with version 9 which is much more responsive but lacks more features. I have used Pinnacle since version 4.
