First let me mention that I began running S10 on a P4 1.4 ghz machine with 512 MB RAM so I know performance is not going to be optimal. The video card I have did not meet requirements so I could not do any editing. I have since bought a new one but have not yet installed. All I wanted to do for my first project was put some video on a DVD for my mother-in-law. I was able to create an MPEG-2 file and save it to the hard drive. I then tried burning it directly to DVD-R and could not read the DVD. I installed the Studio patch and then received "Export error:Real time"!!
I have since gone on the pinnacle forum and read through pages upon pages....upon pages of similar problems. I have also heard about software crashes. Apparently this has been going on for the last 2 versions with no apparent end in sight.
Is the situation as dire as I am reading on the other board? Is there any hope that this new patch coming out the end of January will help? Given the machine I have (it will be a few months before I can get a new one) and the software issues should I look for an alternative software?
Thanks for your input.
