Thread: Studio 14 installed, have your say

  1. Exclamation Studio 14 installed, have your say

    I went for the Upgrade from 12 Ultimate to 14 Ultimate Collection, Delivered straight from Pinnacle on DVD.


    So up and running,

    had a quick play, It looks the same, a bit updated layout colours, hasn't crashed yet which is a good thing.
    A few more special effects etc etc.

    You need one heck of a PC to make a movie though.
    Im running Vista 64 bit with 6gigs memory and a pretty quick CPU.
    Which is far too slow for me to have fun and make something that's fluid.

    Video editing is supposed to be fun and entertaining, not a bore of having to wait around.

    I suppose its because all my stuff is in Hi Def.


    Anyway lets have your views on this new product.. good or bad.

    I'm glad you posted this I'm awaiting delivery of my first HD camera, I have been using V10.8 and was wondering whether to upgrade to V14. I think I'll have to have a rethink as I only have a P4 2.8G chip and 1G memory and a Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card. I've heard that unless you are doing 3D things the graphics card doesn't really come into play, do you know if this is correct?

    Looks like I need to find a more CUP friendly editing software or it's time to get a bigger, better PC !

    Ok ive been using this today,
    If you are filming and editing in HD.

    Get this now, Its far better than 12, far quicker to edit than 12.

    It hasnt crashed, and ive been editing now for 4 hours solid.
    Its finnaly there with HI Def editing, it took them long enough, but its there, its working and doing a grand job.
    Well done Pinnacle.

    Hey Brian, that's really good news. I got my Hi def Camera but that took all my money so I'm having to wait for a new PC. I'm editing in SD for the time being which is still good quality.

    Do you know if V14 can edit .mvk files from a Panasonic P2 card. As far as I can tell only the top end NLE's can take them.

  5. Default

    My cannon uses mts files, which work fine with 14,

    Im now renering 25 mins of film, with 12 this would take about 2 hours, but its flying through it, it will take about 25 mins to render 25 mins of video in HD which is very good compared with 12.

    im burning the video to dvd so its also down scaling the HD to DVD quality.


    Will have to see what the finished product is like though ..........

    25mins for 25mins is really good. While I've been looking for a new NLE, I've taken advantage of the free trials that's been available. I tried Edius 5 which I didn't like at first because it was so different to what I was use to. Now I would recommend it to anyone. It did really fast renders and the quality of the Canopus codecs is very good. I'm using Sony Vegas at the moment and it's certainly not as user friendly as pinnacle but perhaps less limiting.

    It is an interesting journey finding out all the different nuances of the different software. I would love to take the best bits of all of them and put them together to create the ultimate NLE.
