3.0 out of 5 stars Not very user-friendly. 30 Dec 2013
Edition:Plus|Verified Purchase
Having already paid nearly 50 for the standard version which proved inadequate (see my previous review), I hoped to be able to give the Plus version at least 4*, as I would have done for the old Pinnacle Studio 12 Plus version. The customer support person said I should be able to install Studio 17 Plus on top of the standard version without removing it first. Don't believe it. On trying this, you get the message that all the files are already installed on your computer, and installation aborts. Adding to the stress, although the box and paper disc sleeve say Studio 17 Plus, the label on the disc is exactly the same 'Pinnacle Studio 17' without the 'Plus' and has the same product number as the basic version. This leads me to think it is the same disc, and that the Serial Number is the means of unlocking the other features, and that they could have charged a smaller fee for an upgrade rather than saying I had to purchase a whole new program ( via Amazon for 70) [Corel were charging 99]. So I removed the basic version using Control Panel, Programs, remove all the Pinnacle Studio 17 programs: Install Manager, Standard Content Pack, Score Fitter Vol. 1-2, and Title Extreme. It then installed, but on opening guess what ? - it looked exactly the same as the basic version with none of the missing features! Stress now mounting. Brainwave - check what Serial Number it is using, after all, it didn't even ask for one when installing. But where can you find this info? There's a little question mark button to the right of the tabs on the top left, click on that and select 'activate and register', and there it is. The Serial Number was that of the previous version I had just removed, but on entering the new one on the paper disc sleeve, lo and behold, all the missing features appeared. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Improvement = deterioration 16 Dec 2013
Edition:Plus|Verified Purchase
I have been using various versions of Pinnacle Studio since 8 - and I bought 17 plus to replace Pinnacle 15 which I had been using before I experienced compatability problems when I had to buy a new computer with Windows 8.1. after my XP one 'died'.

The first 'shock' was that the user interface is completely different - more akin to Paintshop. I understand that this is the result of Corel's take over of Pinnacle and its attempt to merge their two video editing programs into one.

Gone are the handy drop down menu 's from the tool box eg. picture in picture, video and audio effects etc. Most are there if you search long enough but not as user friendly. There is a plethora of fancy transitions provided but I suspect few serious video makers will ever want to use them.

It appears that you can no longer add music by 'ripping' CD's from the D drive in your computer ( I hold a licence to do this for 'non commercial use'.) I have yet to 'find' the old 'change volume / balance tool ' with its convenient sliders. To do this one has to use 'dials' adjacent to the time line.

Despite two patches that have been provided since the launch there is a major problem in exporting ( make movie on earlier versions) finished videos to DVD. The burning process come to a halt after 50% of the process with an error message popping up, known to Corel as it is recorded on their web site and reported by several users on various forums. It seems only possible to obtain MPEG files rather than a true DVD.

I had previously been using Pinnacle Studio 12 Ultimate, which I found very easy to use and produced excellent results. I used the Trial Version of Pinnacle Studio 16 Plus recently, and I wasn't too keen on it. However, as I had to purchase a full version, I opted for Pinnacle Studio 17 Plus. This appears to be even more complex, and even the 300+ pages of the User Manual (which I had to print out!) has done little to clarify many points. However, don't let this put you off as I know that once I get used to some of the intricacies of this Software then I will be able to produce excellent results. I have tried 'Trial' versions of other video editing programs, but in my opinion the Pinnacle Software offers excellent value for money - particularly at Amazon prices!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate 6 Mar 2014
By Lee
Edition:Plus|Verified Purchase
Absolutely brilliant program, did not come with any instructions but plenty of professional video instruction on youtube. reviews stated that it had problems with glitches, I let the program render each section before moving on and no problems so far, also pinnacle sent me a patch which should solve any issues.

Value for money program and great looking end results to your film etc.
