Pinnacle 10+ is more jittery than hooker in church! What's learning curve on Premier?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Dilbert D. Danglewiggy, Nov 13, 2005.

  1. I've been experimenting with Pinnacle's Studio 10 + and I like the
    features, but getting them to work, rendering a project and printed to
    disk, is like trying to get a date with a nun. It ain't gonna happen,
    and if by some freak of fate it does the payoff ain't gonna be what
    you expect...

    Anyway, how long would it take me to learn Adobe's Premier well enough
    to do the same things as I can occasionally do on Studio + when the
    stars are aligned just right?

    Thanks in advance and no offense intended if you're a church going
    hooker....

    I've been experimenting with Pinnacle's Studio
    10 +

    Another satisfied Pinnacle user.
    If it's results you want, you'd be better
    off using MS Word instead of Pinnacle to
    edit video.

  4. I was hoping to find someone who knew both systems and could give me a
    little heads up rather than spending my time on something and finding
    out the product would require too much of a time investment to pay of
    for what I need...

    Thanks anyway...

    Try Vegas Movie Maker. Download demo. It's head and shoulders above
    Pinnacle.

    I personally use the full version of Vegas, but I've recommended the "little
    version" to a lot of Pinnacle users with no regrets from any of them. It
    does what they wanted to do without spending a fortune.

    Good luck. There is an alternative to Adobe's stuff....

    What an idiotic statement. Using Word would probably tax your mental
    ability also. Making blanket statement without explaining why is
    probably the reason you are having troubles.

    Nappy is an idiot and posts negative replies like someone asked his
    opinion.

    Who said I was having troubles? The only
    trouble was trying to hit the garbage bin
    as I lobbed my Pinnacle products across the
    room. The Studio 9 box I got in first time,
    but the AVDV card took a couple of shots.
    Any suggestions for the Blue Box?
    Well... I suppose Pinnacle works for you,
    and that's nice.

    What is it? Five minute shorts of your
    6 month old niece chasing the family
    puppy across the lawn?

    Sorry to hear that. Seems you are not alone.
    When I went from Video Action (Editbay by DPS) to Premiere (Pinnacle
    DV500) 6.0, I bought a video to get me up to speed. It took me about a
    day of guffing with it and getting the basics down. After that, you
    learn as you expand what you want to do. I was editing basics in about a
    day.

    While I agree that his posts have no substance or information, he is
    entitled to make his gripe. It only shows how much information he really
    has on Pinnacle products (the last one he mentioned using was something
    along the lines of a DC10+ or so).

  14. Safetyo,

    Thanks for the heads up on Vegas. Does it have all the features Studio
    10+ has, but don't work. I think Studio would have been a block buster
    if some Marketing or other management types didn't force it to market
    before it was ready...

    Thanks...

    I haven't seen a version of Studio that was ready. I've played with 7,
    8 and 9. for the sake of the $50 upgrade each time, but I'm cutting the
    cord. 6 hours to render and burn a DVD on a amd 3200 system?!?!? just
    stupid.

    The stupid fact is that you fail to understand that rendering is a
    function of the CPU and 6 hours is not a long time for a decent size
    video with average editing done. If you think you will improve much
    by changing the software you are probably going to be searching longer
    tha Jason did for the holy grail. If you want to cut the time down,
    do what they do at professional video studios and buy a couple
    hundered CPU chained together. Studio 9 Plus is one of the best
    versions out there of any software for the money. It captures, edits,
    and burns the complete DVD that will play back on most DVD players. If
    you can not live with a 6 hour rendering time then good luck in your
    seach for the "Perfect" software. Make sure you are in good health
    and can live long enough.
