Who here uses Pinnacle, any version of Pinnacle I don't care, to edit your films? No one here seems to use it!!
Ok, who pulled the pin on this one...

It's a bit too user friendly for us wannabe professional "I only use what they use in the media business...and Premiere" types ;)

I have used it, and am familiar with it.

My problem is that it is rather unstable, and slow - a big NONO for us filmmies (did I just make a new slang term for us).

Other programs that we use are more expensive, but can do a lot more with much more stability.

Not to forget Movie Maker - it's great too.

I played with it once a long time ago before I had vagas and then went back and cut with the old hi8 cam and my VCR.

I used to use it for all my editing, but then when i learnt it didnt have a bluescreener, i switched to premiere pro.
I still use it now to crompess my files for youtube and when I dont want a full version of the file.
Speaking of witches, Im getting 11 plus, just for the sake of being better then 9 SE.

I know a friend of mine that dies by Pinnacle, yet he can edit just as well as any moron using Premiere or FinalCut.

It's not really a matter of what you're using, just what comes out. I know alot of people who think I'm kidding when I say I still use Windows MovieMaker (with a combo of AE)- but believe or not, it comes out just as good as Premiere.

Yep, use what works for you. If you are OK with what Pinnacle can do, and can accept its quirks (all editing programs have their own!), then stick with it. We each have our favorites, and we're biased, so go with what you like, not what we like. If you are unsatisfied with your program, check out any editing program's site. They'll be sure to have a trial version that you can test out.

Good luck.
