Whatever you do DON't buy this until you have read all the negative comments from the Pinnacle forums. I made the mistake of not researching before hand. I personally will never buy any pinnacle product again

Comment by Aaron
about Pinnacle Studio Jun 2011

This has some really nice features and a lot of effects, more than most programs, but everytime that I used it, I had to close every program and everything basically, and it still would have problems. It takes up a lot of processing power to just run the program let alone be able to make or do anything in it. But if you can run it at a good speed, then it can do a lot. It can even make some simple DVD menus.
