1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: None

Cons: Will not install on Windows 8.1. I did everything Corel tech support suggested, still won't install. When I asked tech support for a refund, they simply stopped communicating. GARBAGE!

Other Thoughts: I have several Corel product that I've been happy with, but this will be my last.

5 out of 5 eggspinnacle

Pros: I've used Pinnacle video editing software since version 8.0. It has always been easy to use. I've done projects for the US and Europe without any problem. High Def, you name it I have had no complaints.

Cons: There have been times that I wished that I had more tracks available for more creative editing but this has not been a big frustration.

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of video editors out there but for the ease of simplicy and complexity of value there are few that can compare.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashes Constantly

Pros: Looks pretty in the box

Cons: Crashes constantly. Running on a high-end PC and still crashes. Constant pop-ups wanting to load activation keys for every kind of plugin you use. Very annoying. I have been unsuccessful in getting my first movie edited due to constant crashing.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. I know why Newegg had it discounted so low and why they won't accept returns (if they did, everyone would send it back)

1 out of 5 eggsWill not run on Windows 8.1 x64

Pros: Price was great.

Cons: Will not run on Windows 8.1 x64. I have installed 16.1 patch and the patch for Windows 8.1 and it still will not run! Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect support from Pinnacle, you're giving a one time support if you register within 14 days but all you can do is open a ticket.

4 out of 5 eggsa fixed win 8.1 launch

Pros: nice interface. got it when it was on sale. lot of features. cant complain but read the con and other thought.

Cons: one less star for for registry edit to get it working with win 8.1 launch issue.

**** to fix the launch issue on win 8.1 u need to to do a registry edit. i got this off the net (from microsoft site)so i take no credit nor responsible for issue that might arise..

**** Now to get it working with 8.1. you need to follow this instruction carefully!!!

to edit the registry:

desktop mode:
right click start, left click run then type: regedit

metro mode just type: regedit

it should pop on your left side just click it.

a box should appear.. then proceed below:

"Pinnacle Studio 16 fix for Windows 8.1.

Just replace the value of the registry key VersionNT stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/ Wow6432Node/Avid/Studio 2. Change value to 602 from 603 if VersionNT key is present.

*If there is no key VersionNT key present then choose create a new value and name it VersionNT then edit it and and add the value 602 to it.

Steps to make the change for those unfamiliar with these things

First I recommend that you completely uninstall all of Pinnacle along with bonus packs in control panel/uninstall a program, then restart your computer and perform a fresh install of Pinnacle Studio. This will remove any prior patches and changes you've made.

DO NOT OPEN THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM after install and perform the following steps.

1- Move mouse to top right hand corner in Win 8.1

2- Select search and type run and hit enter

3- At the bottom left a window will appear, type regedit and hit enter

4- Click yes to enter registry editor


6- Select software

7- Select Wow643node

8- Select Avid

9- Select Studio 2

10- Now on the right you will see some Key items. If VersionNT is not listed then right click on that page and select new string value. Now name that VersionNT.

11- Now right click on VersionNT and select modify

12- Under Value Data enter 602

13- That’s it!

14. Exit out of everything and restart your computer.
Now proceed to download And install PinnacleStudio16_1_0_Patch that will help speed up the software."

but i ran two patch instead of on. just to make sure. and its work :) heres how. (to get the patch, google search Pinnacle Studio 16 patch, more search u get a second patch)

run patch #1


restart your computer (not necessary but its better to do so)

after a reboot or so you will to

run patch #2


after its patched, restart your computer.

search google "Pinnacle Studio 16 won't load" without the "

Other Thoughts: follow instruction carefully!

instruction can be found on microsoft website (google search "Pinnacle Studio 16 won't load" without the '

patch can be found on their website (pinnacle)



I hope this help :)

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Editor

Pros: Pinnacle Studio 16 is pretty decent and certainly about the best you can get for the price. Ya, its different than previous versions but its pretty intuitive once you are used to it.

All the effects you could want, etc... All the output options. I haven't had any of the issues others have reported with crashing though Pinnacle Studio has never been the most stable program ever. Just save often but it shouldn't be too big of an issue.

Scorefitter music tracks are pretty nice to have available and can be formed to fit any video.

Overall really nice to use for a consumer level product.

Cons: I haven't really run across anything in particular.

Other Thoughts: Just thought I would mention in response to one of the other reviewers on here who said there is no ability to adjust the speed of tracks. That is not true at all, just right click the track in the timeline and select Speed.

1 out of 5 eggsWindows 8 users - stay away

Pros: Not sure - software wouldn't launch

Cons: Says it works with Windows 8.1 with patch(es) downloaded from Pinnacle website. Tried installing multiple times with the instructions on their website and kept getting error about Operating System upgraded please re-install (which the patches were supposed to correct). Tried for 3 days to email and call tech support with no response.

Other Thoughts: Even if you are currently running Windows 8, sooner or later you will probably want to upgrade to 8.1 or some other offering. I would say this software will stop working when you upgrade.

3 out of 5 eggsLove/Hate Relationship

Pros: Love the Interface.

Cons: Hate the crashes.

Other Thoughts: I've used many different brands of software for video editing over the years, I thought I'd try Pinnacle's again, since it was on a pretty big discount. Years ago their software had an intuitive interface, but was very buggy, so I stopped buying it. Well, nothing has changed. Whether or not this is derived from the top of the line Avid product, it still crashes way too often, so I learned to save often working on my first project. I still love the interface, as it is easy to work with, and the Ultimate version has numerous quality templates and some interesting plug-ins. But I'm running it on a Core i7 desktop with plenty of RAM and plenty of HD space, and a new NVIDEA GTX 760 graphics card, so it's most likely not a hardware issue. Sadly, I really wanted to like it. It's way cheaper and easier to learn than Adobe's Premiere Pro, and more intuitive and includes more nice templates than Corel VideoStudio Pro.

1 out of 5 eggsNon-existent Support

Pros: Works like most Video editors

Cons: NO Support. Only 2 weeks of install support which they don't respond to and was very difficult to setup.

Other Thoughts: This is now a down level version.

1 out of 5 eggsNo IRQ Driver Found

Pros: Reads NTSC and PAL files

Cons: Windows 7 constantly crashes. Every time I start the program it says "No IRQ Driver Found" and I have to re-install the program. Same problem with version 14 and 15.
