Pinnacle - not very good software

I was nearly finished with rendering the Celia DVD when I got "blue screened" and Pinnacle Studios 12 refused to work no matter what I did with it.  (I even had another new drive installed last night).  My tech guy said that Pinnacle broke and has to be re-installed.  I wrote to Pinnacle this morning and they said the same thing.  So I'm re-installing the software now.

I think that if I had the time, I'd really look into getting a Mac and buying Final Cut Pro.  I would have to attend a class or two for FCP as I hear that there's a big learning curve.

Well, I'm sure that everything will work out eventually. I'm just really looking forward to editing all the other videos!  I had hired a camera man to help with the highlights WAM video so I'm anxious to see his camera work.

Video editing on a Mac
Hi Kat,
Sorry to hear you are having problems. I have worked on both systems and wanted to let you know how much easier it was, when I moved to a Mac. I was able to pick up FCP by noodleing around in it without any special classes. The program is very logical and intuitive. Since you have been editing before, I have no doubt that you would be able to make the switch very easily. Keep up the great work.

Thanks,
Stdesn

Thanks, Stdesn!

I'm familiar with Mac, and probably should really consider buying one. :)

Every body I know, who does video editing, uses Pinnacle and Mac. It's very user friendly, and they have gotten very professional results,
Also Mac computers rule. My brother has gotten 1 hard drive crash in 7 years, and only beacuse his virus software, missed it, on an e-mail !!
