I don't think Pinnacle is the best soft ware for editing video !!!
What would you recomend? I've red a lot of reviews and quite # of users complaint about Pinnacle. I have Pinnacle Studio Ultimate and Magix Edit Pro 16. I would say Magix is more complicated (my opinion). Was leading toward Adobe Premiere Elements 8 but it had bad reviews. My problem is the quality of captured material. I use AverMedia PCIe card and ATI TV Wonder HD750 USB device, not much different. I ran out of ideas...
