3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as expected. 15 Dec. 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I have been using Pinnacle software for many years and in several different editions & upgrades. This was to be installed on a new computer with Windows 8.1. On starting the set-up process I had the message that it was unable to install the DirectX updates. That is not surprising seeing the OS had DirectX 11, and the set-up was trying to install DirectX 9. On closing the message box I found I exited setup. I tried again, but clicked the Done button. Again I aborted setup. I contacted customer support. You are only allowed one free question, so choose it carefully. You are encouraged to pay for a support scheme. One is given a case number, then several days passed before being emailed by a support staff member. I then had another go myself. This time I left the message box on the screen and re-pressed the Install button. This time it installed over about 30 minutes. On opening, it suggested installing the latest update, which I did. I had the message that several files could not be installed because they were being used by another program. I closed Pinnacle and re-opened it. The advice I received over the phone was always close Pinnacle before updating. On trying it out I noticed half a dozen control buttons were missing. Now, was that because there were some files that had not installed. On complaining to Corel/Pinnacle support I had the quick answer that they were only present on the Plus and Ultimate versions, and I should phone Corel support UK for any special offers on an upgrade. The vital missing button for me was the Volume keyframe control which was enabled on all the previous basic editions. On phonong Corerl I was told there were no upgrades - I would have to buy the complete program. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Program was recommended to me! 17 Feb. 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
This could have been a good program but is full of bugs and holes is hard to use and no help program or anything. I dont want to ring customer support because by the sounds of it they are useless, had to watch a tutorial on youtube to learn how to use the program. No instructions supplied. I installed a patch which allowed me to create DVD menus but causes the program to crash when creating dvd's (which it didnt do without the patch) Also a lot of stuff seems to have been locked off unless you spring your wallet for the ultimate edition which seems a little money grabbing to me (things like creating sub menus in your dvd's you will need the ultimate edition) I just bought this because Windows 8.1 doesnt come with DVD creating software as standard and this was recommended to me, wont be able to return it now because i have installed it on my pc and used the serial code. Again money grabbing company dont give you the option of a trial month to test out the software. Once i learned how to use it though it did seem like a good program, burns DVD's super quick and allows you loads of options on how to share your video with the world once its done. Hopefully they will iron out the kinks with windows 8.1 real soon otherwise i am out £40

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 7 Jan. 2014
By dickjhf
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased a new PC with Windows 8. Having previously used Pinnacle Studio 12 I decided to upgrade to Studio 17 (Standard Edition). I have to say I am very disappointed and wish I had not bothered. Firstly in my opinion Studio 17 is not very user friendly. I am STILL struggling to find out how to effectively trim my video clips - a fairly basic requirement I would have thought. The manual describes use of 'Trim Mode' by selecting the 'Trim Mode' button on the toolbar. Guess what? - no Trim Mode Button!! Manual says configure toolbar with 'Customise Toolbar Button'. Guess what? - no Customise Toolbar Button!! I raised a support query with Pinnacle Support - not at all helpful. Their simple answer is not all functions are available in the Standard Edition !!! The manual clearly relates to Ultimate Edition with no indication whatsoever where functions are not available in lesser versions. So I still cannot find an easy or effective way to trim my video clips - what therefore is the point of spending around £50 on a DOWNGRADE from a previous version? The comparison table between the different versions of Studio 17 (ie Standard, Plus, Ultimate) is VERY misleading and unhelpful. The Standard version appears to be very limited - if you are considering Studio 17 I would suggest you need to consider the Ultimate version (at least the manual then makes sense) but quite frankly I suspect there are much better software options elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very intuitive to use but still unstable 21 Jan. 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Looking back to versions 11 and earlier this latest version is much simpler to use and very easy to pick up. This is just as well as there is no help facility. Unfortunately it still locks up with frustrating frequency requiring the program to be re started several times an hour when editing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disaster 16 Jan. 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Pure disaster with Windows 8.1 - Necessary patch leaves program open to hackers, especially the very naste piece of malware called Nation Zoom. Not found by Norton or Spybot, can only temporarily removed with WinZip. Buyers should be provided with a fully revised version, not with this dangerous intermediate solution!!

Having been used to a much older version of studio, I decided to go for this, as I had recently got a new PC. TBH, I don't think it is as user friendly as the older version, and it locks up some times, when I try to use the title editor. Even with the updates, it still locks up.
Once you have found your way around it, the results are OK. If you are used to video software, this will do you, if you are a new newbie, be prepaired to take a while to get your head around it.
