Hello, I am just a very occasional video editor, and was quite happily using Pinnacle Studio 9 Standard which I got free with a digital camera just to put my home videos onto DVD.
I then bought a Canon DC201 camcorder, which records onto DVD, and had to upgrade to Studio 9 Plus, from memory something to do with the Standard edition not supporting the audio files which the camcorder uses?
I have now upgraded my PC to Windows Vista, and find that Studio 9 Plus does not work with Vista, so I'm needing to upgrade to Studio 12.
While I liked the extra features of 9 Plus (extra menus etc) I can live without them for all I do with my videos, so I'm wondering if anyone knows if I can get away with 12 Standard or do I need the Plus version? Is there a trial version available? I've downloaded the trial of Premier Elements, and know it will do what I want, but it's more expensive and at first glance, I don't like it as much.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
