Purchased the Ultimate 21 not a year ago along with a new HP computer designed for editing videos. Program itself was ok but difficult to find files even though I put different names on files, would just read the date transferred to program. Worked on a 20 minute video for over 7 months for a firehouse 100th anniversary, and will only play from the software. Tried saving, burning, etc. for hours on different formats and to my computer and will play on disk on USB drive without flickering pictures. Called tech support, can't understand half of their broken english, just to get a tech ticket and hung up. CAN'T SAVE THE VIDEO!!!!

Review by Peskybird on May 16, 2019 Version: Pinnacle Ultimate 21 OS: Windows 10 Ease of use: 4/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 2/10

Have tried many version of Pinnacle in the past and all have been unstable, crashing unexpectedly during crucial edits.
Not sure why I haven't tried anything else, just used to it I suppose Ö

Since v21 installed, all seemed ok, hadn't used it much on the laptop, then v22 come out and adverts all the time popping up (within about 3 to 4 months of me buying v21), since the update available, Pinnacle v21 constant crashing just as before.
Leads me to believe it's just a scam, purposely crashing the app to make you believe a newer version will fix all the problems.

Hate the UI on newer version compared to older, over complicated to apply just the most basics of features.
Will be hanging up supporting pinnacle and looking elsewhere.

PowerDirector on Android, works so much better than this, stable, quick and efficient.

Review by Daniel Stevens on Dec 28, 2018 Version: v21 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 4/10 Overall: 3/10

I have been using Studio 15 for many years now, and apparently I still need to use it, it was the last really functional version. I was burned buying version 18, I paid good money for it, and it NEVER worked. I ended up simply uninstalling it and cutting my losses. I finally decided to try version 22 so I bit the bullet and paid for it. Astoundingly, it hasn't crashed on my Windows 7/64 machine, but they couldn't make burning a Blu-Ray or DVD any more difficult, in fact I still can't figure it out so I'm dead in the water again. If anyone actually knows how to edit files together and burn a disc please let me know!

Same issue. Can not use it. Upgraded my computer. Still crashes every time with all the specs Installed. Lost my money on this product. Its headed to the bin. DO NOT BUY!! I thought Coral would be legit. Going to ask for my money back under fair trade laws. Just wasted a full day trying to get it working. Bought a new computer!!!
