2.0 out of 5 stars I much prefer the older version, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pinnacle Studio 16 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Unimpressed I'm afraid. I purchased it to run on Windows 8 which my previous version (Studio 10) can't do. Yes, the revamped software does look prettier to use. The older version doesn't look as slick as Studio 16 but for me, it is much more straightforward to do what you want to do, including the real basics.

With the new version I can't enable the frame accurate editing function which was really very easy on with the earlier software. In principle, the video tutorials are great but, even following the relevant one step by step, the required button on the screen for the mode I wanted wouldn't enable, so scene clipping has to remain approximate according to how wide you set the time line.

There is also a problem with disc writing. After 16 minutes or so of edited material, it just seems to stop writing, but without reporting an error so when it comes to playing the disc, it just terminates at that point. This is something that I have only tried on my laptop which runs on Vista so it may be a Vista-specific problem. Either way, it is supposed to work with Vista but I find myself creating an .avi file which I then need to pick up using Studio 10 to create the disc and that works fine.

So, from my point of view, upgrading to Studio 16 has been a waste of time and money. I've ended up reverting to using Studio 10, accepting that I have continue to do my video editing on my Vista machine.
