1 out of 5 eggsSays it will but it won't

Pros: There aren't any. Specs CLEARLY state that video-audio formats
are compatible with my ZOOM Q3HD video recorder. OTOH, Sony's VEGAS11 does not state compatibilty with my Q3HD, but Sony's software works!!! Sony has a few scant spec listings. Amazing. Got it for $30 OEM with my Lte-On burner combo price here at the Eggster.

Cons: Endless amount of wasted time with Pinnacles tech support. A nightmare. This software package is an overbloated pig consuming over 3 gigs of space, only to find out that it doesn't work. I mean if a piece video editing software cannot work using Qucktime Player, which is free btw., give up Pinnacle! My device can use Quicktime to view and play videos, all day and all night. Yours, has no sound? Amazing. Maybe by Version 59 they'll find a fix.......zzzzz.

Other Thoughts: Called their Pre-Sale dept, before buying. Was told by lady at Pinnacle that the software would work. {Gave her my model number, etc., for confirmation}. Then Newegg put the software on sale a few days later. I said, timing was pic-perfect! Right. What hassle. For prospective buyers is:buyer beware--even if you do all the pre-buy research it may not work. A total waste of time and energy.

1 out of 5 eggsVery bad software and tech support.

Pros: I must say that this software product is by far the worst that you can get for your money. The product does not work as advertised and the tech support department is horrible. Their most common tech support advice is to reboot your computer. Then they give you a case number for someone to call you back within 24 to 48 hours, but no one ever calls back. After having called and demanded to speak with their 2nd tier level folks regarding my case number I was told that they were in a meeting and that someone would call me back asap. 2 days later still nothing. Surprisingly, this company is very sketchy.

Cons: Regarding the software "bottom line up front" you will NOT be able to produce high definition videos on Blue-Ray format or any other format as advertised. It doesn’t matter what type of video file your HD camera generates. When you try to create an image or create a disk based on a 50min recorded video, plan on waiting +15 hours for negative results. It never goes past 90% completion even with top notch hardware components (Intel Core i7 2600K – 16GB PC3 12800 – 2GB Video Card – 7200 RPM HD - Win 7 Pro 64bit). You can only get it to generate a DVD which reduces the video quality. The same applies to AVID Studio which is supposedly the next step up. Lastly, I have owned the product for a year and there has never been any updates. So you are seriously on your own.

Other Thoughts: I do not recommend any of their Pinnacle 15 versions or current AVID studio. Yes it has tons of blows and whistles, but you will not be able to create anything at the end if you are trying to create s movie in HD quality. Regardless, I tested this version on 3 different machines and I got the same results back. Therefore, save yourself your time and money unless you are working with very low resolution videos and you don’t mind getting any support at all.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Manual included

Pros: It is improved and there's a ton of bells and whistles with this program. I bought this program on Newegg and got a crazy deal on it. I buy all my software here.

Cons: There is no manual included. It comes in the same fancy big box, but you have to buy the manual. It cost $10 -$2 if you use the 20% off promo code. It's annoying to spend $100 on a program and the company tries to nickel and dime you on everything. You should not be charged extra to learn how to use the program.
