Pinnacle Studio 8 & 9

I was just about ready to purchase Pinnacle Studio 9 and read some of the reviews by users on the Internet and it made me take a second look.

A friend of mine has been using Pinnacle Studio 8 and indicated he had issues with consistent performance.

I realize that these programs are less than $100.00 but if it does not perform with some consistency then they "may not" be the best alternative.

I didn't purchase either one of these programs due to the negative feedback I received from others.

I would be interested to hear (both positive and negative) what others that use these programs (Studio 8 & 9) on a regular basis have to say.

Thanks in advance for your valued input.

Helicopterjohn, videediting is pretty hardware demanding.
Both on cpu, RAM, video cards and especially drivers.

If I were you I would check out the forum for Studio-users :
http://www.pinnaclesys.com
Here you will find both positive and negative about the product.

By the way what kind of computer do you have (cpu,ram,hdd etc..)?

System Configuration

Dr.Phil,

Thanks for the link to Pinnacle Systems.

Here is the information of my computer system that I just built with the help of a friend. The system currently has 1 gig of RAM and I intend to update it to 2 gigs in the near future.

Win XP Pro
Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2070SB-bk 22" Monitor
Cooler Master Praetorian Mid Twr Case USB2.0 ATX (Black Case)
Antec TruePower 550 Power Supply
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe Motherboard
Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 3.2GHz, 800MHz FSB, Socket 478
Kingston KVR400X64C3AK2/1G 1GB Kit DDR400 PC3200
Western Digital Raptor 74GB 10,000RPM SATA Hard Drive, Model WD740GD (2 ea in a Raid Configuration)
Sony FD MPF9201121-1 6082 1.44MB 3.5in Floppy Disk Drive (Black)
ATI RADEON 9800 XT - Graphics Card - 256 MB
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2 PCI Sound Card
Plextor 708A DVD Writer

I am currently using a trial version of Adobe Premier Pro. It is definitely a lot harder to use than Movie Maker or Studio 8/9, but it is rich with features and options. It will take some time to learn all the tricks but I think it is a program you can grow with. It seems to work well with the Plextor 708A DVD Writer. I am also using the Verbatim brand of media which was recommended by Plextor and "no coasters" so far. I tried some NewEgg DVD-R media "that I received as a gift during the computer build" with Adobe Premier Pro and all I got was coasters.

Any tricks or suggestions about Adobe Premier Pro would be appreciated. You can send them via e-mail if you prefer not to discuss on this forum.

Helicopterjohn, you're pc is perfect for editing.
I want S-ata 10000rpm disk too ...You can never have to much HDD.
Uncompressed video uses about 3-3,5MB/1 sec.

If you want to edit professionally ,Premiere got the features you need.

Some links that can be interesting :

http://www.wrigleyvideo.com - great tutorials

http://www.adobeforums.com/cgi-bin/webx?14@@.1de9c1bf - Adobe premiere forum

http://www.stevengotz.com/premiere.htm - More Premiere information

I have never experienced problems with Verbatim DVD's, so stick with them. Maybe you know this allready but there are several standalone dvd's that do not support all formats. A great page to check compability is :

http://www.dvdrhelp.com
This page also explains how to convert to the most common formats, like from avi to divx etc..

There also is possible to buy great tutorials on video, but I think they are pretty expensive.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the information

Dr.Phil,

Those 10,000 rpm Western Digital raided hard drives are the ticket. I bought 2 of them for $215.00 each. Western Digital also "had" a $50.00 rebate if you bought two drives. Sorry, the rebate offer expired on April 30, 2004.

I really appreciate the tips on the links for information. Like I said the learning curve on Adobe Premier Pro is pretty steep but the rewards are worth the effort.

I am a frequent visitor of "www.dvdrhelp.com" they really have some excellent information and tips. I will check out the other sites later this evening.

If you can think of any other information or links they will be appreciated.
