I bought Pinnacle Studio 11 Ultimate. It's great. I can do all kinds of things with it but one... I can't get decent quality! All my videos are blurry. I've tried all the formats -- AVI, MPG1-4, WMV, and all that are possible. I can't get quality product with this thing! Everything is blurred. Not one codec can produce a sharp image!
What am I to buy?
I have a good computer too! I have 2 GB of ram. My graphics card is a Geforce 7600 GT with 256 GB of ram. I've got an AMD 64 bit processor. And I have videos made elsewhere that are sharp and clean. And I run Photoshop frequently, and get stunning results with it. I capture video with Fraps, and get 512x384 AVIs that are sharp as a tack! But I cannot achieve any sharpness at all with Pinnacle Studio 11.
So, what video editor can produce quality results? Pinnacle Studio 11 can't!
Oh! And.... I have an mpg that is supplied with Pinnacle for playing around with. It's called BackyardCircus.mpg, or something like that. Is clear as a bell! But I can't load it, and save it and get the same quality for the life of me! I can't even save it in the same aspect ratio as the original (16x9).
