I bought and installed Pinnacle Studio 12 Ultimate. I thought cool to have lots of video effects transitions features. But when I tested "make movie" for the identical resolution / bit rate etc, all video outputs got blurry low quality.
This problem persists with or without applying any effect. I've tried using my existing Honestech Video Editor 7 which performs much better.
In terms of video output quality, Pinnacle fails terribly. I'm extremely disappointed with Pinnacle. Hope Pinnacle will produce a patch soon.
