Hi, Ive got a frustrating problem with Pinnacle 9.4. I recently bought a new system because my old P4 wasnt fast enough when it came to rendering video. On my old P4 Pinnacle runs without a problem, except that its slow. On my new machine however, after I installed Pinnacle and tried to run it, the program would close after 30seconds or so without a warning and there wouldnt even be a error message. So I thought maybe it needs a patch which I then downloaded from the Pinnacle support site, but lo and behold, Pinnacle still doesn't work. Only now it stays open for a while longer (enough for me to import a video), but as soon as I want to start working on the imported file, Pinnacle freezes up and gives me the "error: Sorry about the inconvience, but Pinnacle has encountered a problem and needs to close...etc, etc, etc" message. Is there anyone who has encountered a similar problem and found the sollution?
It is driving me up the wall. I thought there was a problem with windows so i formatted the hard drive & reinstalled windows and Pinnacle, but alas I had the same thing happen. Here is the specs of my new system:
AMD Athlon 3800 x2 64x
K8N SLI motherboard
ASUS 256mb PCI xpress X550 series
250gb SATA Hardrive
XP 2000 TV capture card
Win XP Pro, service pack2.
Is it maybe that Pinnacle is incompatible with AMD dual core processors? Cause I found that on a friends computer certain programmes would freeze up when hyperthreading was enabled on his P4 3ghz. They work fine when HT is disabled, so could that be the problem with the dual core?
O and another thing, I installed WinXPx64 on another partition and wanted to install Pinnacle there, but it doesnt even want to install there. Any patch i can download for that?
