1 Star Review     

Weakness: Buggy, crashes, renders whenever it feels like it, a complete POS.

I have the Studio Ultimate with all the patches and though it has nice tools, it is plain buggy. It will crash whenever it determines you are most likely to stress out, it drops frames like the Rams drop football passes and AVID service is a joke.

Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus
4 Star Review   By member richardspix - Jun 13, 2008   

Strengths: Easy to use, has numerous features. Can capture from DVD. Voice overs, add background music. Nice title creation.

Weakness: Can hang-up once in a while.

I've used earlier versions of Pinnacle Studio for a few years now. I like it better than Adobe Premier Express, find it easier to learn. The big knock usually is that it crashes a lot. It crashes, but not that often for me. I just save frequently. If you buy, go for the Plus version. Being able to work with two video tracks is nice. For the price, I don't think you can beat it.

Just an awful program...
2 Star Review     

Strengths: Easy to use

Weakness: Drops way to many frames and voice out of sync

I have spend a lot of time on support with no help at all, they did not know what to tell me but make sure my video card and card are up to date when they are all brand new. The sound is just awful to try to work with. There are better programs out there I would not recommend this to even my worst of enemies.

good software
4 Star Review   By member woodsley - Mar 9, 2008   

Strengths: editing videos effectively

Weakness: freeze the computer occasionally

I have been using pinnacle studio since version 8. Frankly, the current version (11) is very much the same with the older versions regarding it functions. The only new feature is that you can now run this software in Vista environment. I have to edit a lot of videos and this software saves me approximately 5 hours every week instead that I have to go to the video studio. However, the software did freeze my computer sometimes and I could not figure out why that happened. Other than that I am happy with this software.

Beyond Expectation
4 Star Review   By member savingeye - Mar 6, 2008   

Strengths: Fantastic video editing, scaleable workspace ---- WOW

Weakness: REsource demand software

I do not consider myself a professional editor nor I intent to be, but for someone serious about doing video editing this is a MUST HAVE. It is very user friendly on editing, capturing and exporting video. I upgraded from a version 8 to 11 and to my surprise it was very similar arragement software wise. Much, very much faster than my earlier version and the results were great. The software is more stable and smooth than the earlier version, but it runs BAD when you have internet open at the same time, slows down and even "fights" other programs for resources. I will say, well worth the price paid, specially since you get a rebate if updating from a previous version.

Good but not excellent
4 Star Review   By member PCenthusiast - Feb 27, 2008   

Strengths: Vista compatible, intuitive

Weakness: Somewhat unstable

I am by no means an expert in video editing, and that's what caught my eye about this product. And I wasn't wrong. I find the workflow intuitive enough, and it just does what it promises to do. Unfortunately, I experience -apparently- random crashes. I have tried installing the latest drivers for my video hardware but no luck. They don't happen often enough to make the product useless but one is too many when you are in the middle of editing.

Good product that requires some improvements to make it excellent
3 Star Review   By member rajvuyyuru - Feb 26, 2008   

Strengths: Best product for any beginners.

Weakness: Takes lots of resources on the system.

I had issues with this product in the initial stages, had system hanging problem, and could get them resolved. It is a good video editing software for any beginners. Ease of use. Compatible with Vista. Little expensive.

Great Package for editing movies and making DVD's
4 Star Review   By member Canucklehead - Dec 30, 2007   

Strengths: HiDef ready. Great work flow. Price. Flexibility.

Weakness: None yet.

I bought this as an upgrade to my Pinnacle Studio Plus version 9. I always found that a little buggy. This is much better. Easy upgrade, and no crashes yet at all. The workflow is awesome. I was burning a movie onto a DVD in no time. It seems speedier, but that could be my machine. Great support and compatability. It will process LOTS of file formats. It will continue to me my editor of choice.

Looks Promising but Performs Less Than Ideally
2 Star Review   By member bballcards - Dec 29, 2007   

Strengths: Lots of features.

Weakness: Does not perform anything well.

In many ways, this is your standard Pinnacle product. The features entice you to buy the product, but the performance always disappoints. As is always the case, there are random hangs, crashes, and lockups that will frustrate the heck out of you. It might be worth the trouble if it wasn't priced so high. Priced as is, it's too expensive for such buggy software.

Studio Plus 11 - Easy to use but...
3 Star Review   By member xavierok - Dec 12, 2007   

Strengths: Easy to use, intuitive interface.

Weakness: Compatibility is low...

In general, it\\\'s intuitive and very easy to use. But it\\\'s not quite stable. I install on one desktop first, but I couldn\\\'t even start the program. I then installed on another computer, it worked, but it crashed sometimes.

Pinnacle Studio Plus 11
4 Star Review   By member rlsoden - Nov 30, 2007   

Strengths: Ability to edit HD video. Easy and intuitive.

Weakness: Requires a powerful computer

I did not have any problems with this software. It requires a powerful computer but I already have that so I didn't have any issues. This software is very easy to use and intuitive for someone just getting into video editing.

If your looking for good video editing software, then keep looking
1 Star Review   By JS on Mwave.com - Aug 24, 2007   

Strengths: Since product has so many problems I could not in good faith say there was any strengths.

Weakness: Many

This is the third release of Studio starting with 8, 9 Plus and now 11 unlimite. I am giving up after 2 month of wasted time spent on the phone with tech support and rendering DVD's that don’t play. Its simple, the product does not do what its advertising it can do. There are always dropped frames and the sound gets out of sync with the video on all of the DVDs I’ve made. After tech support was done with its wasted troubleshooting steps I had to reinstall XP. There are too many other video editing software titles out there with better ratings then to waist your money on this one. Don’t let the advertising fool you. After all this trouble I purchased Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 for less money and I’ve had no problems with it at all. Be sure you have backed up everything on your pc before you install this product and work with the support team because if you loose it all like I did, you will only spend many more hours trying get your pc back to the way it was before you tried Studio 11 Ultimate.

Support editing of High Definition Video
4 Star Review   By member gaodeal - Aug 21, 2007   

Strengths: Support of high-def, so you can even upload files directly from HD DVD or Blu-ray source.

Weakness: really needs a dual-core processor with 2GB, especially if you’re thinking of creating high-def content.

I am happy to find a software can support the editing from my Panasonic HDC-SD1. This software also support of HD DVD or Blu-ray source. But I am using an old laptop, which is not enough to run this software. You really needs a dual-core processor with 2GB, especially if you’re thinking of creating high-def content.
