I am currently a Pinnalce Studio v. 9 user. I have a Sony DV deck DSR-11 connected via Firewire to a windows XP computer. I use it for capturing large amounts of video, editing it, and then converting to Windows media format.
With Pinnacle Studio my complaint is the stability and that it takes really long to render. I am looking for a new product that has the following:
1. Stable (should be able to render in quickest time possible)
2. Basic editing features (nothing fancy, just simple title, overlays, etc.)
3. Capture video in MPEG format (since its is smaller and less processing than DV-AVI)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
