Anyone with Pinnacle Edition Software?

    I have heard about Pinnacle Edition Capture and Editing Software which
    is supposed to be very good, but I am finding it hard to get anyone who
    has ever used it, let alone heard of it.

    Can anyone tell me anything about it ?

    I have XP, 512RAM Pent 4 1.8MHZ Asus P4B533-E with plenty of GBs.

    I have used MSP5, 6.5 and now 7, so it would have to beat that!

    I've got the new version 5.0 (not the Pro version -- can't afford a new
    card), but I haven't really got into it yet, as I'm finishing up some
    projects in Premiere. I can tell you this -- the interface is vastly
    different and will take some getting used to.

    I have tried a few things in Pinnacle Studio 7 which I got with a camera
    I bought and I believ it is much the same layout as Edition.

    You are right it is cosmetically different especially from Premiere and
    MSP. The main thing for me is is it quicker and give better results,
    mainly in editing.

    Sorry, but Studio 7 isn't anything like Edition. I used Studio 7
    extensively, before I upgraded to Premiere.
    I don't know MSP, but Edition has more than cosmetic differences from

    Question: How do you capture with it? I've got a Pinnacle MovieBox DV
    and it's supposed to work with Edition, but I'll be damned if I can
    figure out how to bring it up--any ideas?

    The moviebox is supposed to work with edition, correct.
    But people are having problems with it after adding the sp1 to edition.
    I had the same problem with my DAC-100, it use to work well before SP1.
    I also wrote to Pinnacle, they don't believe its their software. You would
    think someone there would have a dac-100 to test, right? nope.
    Anyway, i can get my dac-100 to work for capture in edition, but not to view
    any output from the timeline or to export my movie back to tape using the

    Try setting the capture in edition to the live setting, and set the timecode
    setting to time of day, and then you should be able to go at least into
    edition with it.
    Check out the edition forums also for more info.
