Wonderful potential
 
Would have been 5 stars if not for the installation problems. 3 stars as a warning to those who are not very PC savy.I bought this card mostly for the software (no problems with the card) after receiving a digital camcorder for Christmas. I had heard that the software was designed to be easy to use and included titling. It is designed very nicely, very intuitive, without a lot of extras. I will start by saying I was eventually successful in editing a 10 minute video, and putting it back o...

A great value, if you have enough RAM and a fast hard disk
 
I had none of the problems described in some of the reviews, although the frame grabbing tool wouldn't work consistently. I am happy to say that Pinnacle fixed this issue and others with release 1.05, which you can download as a patch from their website. With this issue resolved, I can say that this product is quite a bargain and has helped me create simple, high-quality videos very easily. HOWEVER, firewire video editing only works well when you have plenty of RAM (128mb seems about rig...

Excellent Product, and yes Virginia, it works with Athlon!
 
I have used this product now for almost a year and have been very happy with it. I tried other products - a really cruddy program from Dlink whose card locked up my old Pentium 233, Video Studio from Ulead(worked well but interface too jazzy and strange), and also Adobe's video editor (way too complicated for my needs). I was a little hesitant about installing it on my Athlon 900 system but after installing and getting my drivers up to snuff it worked great. As stated, you must have insta...

Easy to use, but beware the hardware requirements
 
I just finished my first 5-minute video using Studio DV. I did not experience any of the unpredictable behavior other reviewers describe. At least, not after I spent a lot of money upgrading my PC. When I got stared, my PC (pre-upgrades) met all of the minimum requirements listed on the box. I had no problems working in preview mode, but my final video was slow and stuttering and then stalled out. Back to the manual... Deep in Appendix B, you will learn that the *recommended* hard driv...

This is the one to get!
 
You have probably read all the product specifications by the manufacturer and other publications regarding the performance and features of the Studio DV. Based on my experience, I can assure you that Studio DV performs as well if not better that all the claims in the product reviews. Installation was a snap with no problems. However, you may need to stop all other programs running in the background (Norton anitivirus, monitor power-saver, etc.) to provide maximum system resources to St...

Beginners beware
 
i've read all of the reviews here and the consistent messages are that a)the card works well, b)if you have the right kind of PC, c)there's no good way to tell if you have the right PC and d)Pinnacle as a company isn't going to help you if you have problemsBoiled down, the product description and information on the box are severly misleading, resulting in a *lot* of (rightfully) angry customersMy personal experience - i'm a computer pro with a firewire/ilink Digital8 camera (sony dcr-trv32...

Easy to use with some exceptions
 
This is a easy to use program for us non techies. The price reflects the simpilcity. I do how ever suggest a dedicated (2nd) hard drive for the video production. I installed a 60 gig 7200 rpm drive and this greatly helps recording to vhs for grandmas tape. The average drive spins at 4200 and can make for jerky playback.Sound effects and transitions are easy to add as is titling. StudioDV does not like to be on the same drive as Windows. Hence,the second drive. The IEEE firewire connection i...

StudioDV Works Wonders
 
It's unfortunate the review from the gentleman from Mill Valley, CA is listed first (I write this August 12, 2001). If readers take his review seriously, many individuals new to DV (digital video) editing will turn away and miss out on using the greatest beginner DV editing product available.Studio DV is so easy to use. It add high-quality titles and dozens of fun transitions to your home videos. It automatically detects where a scene begins and ends, letting you quickly manipulate individ...
