Pinnacle Studio / Flipshare cameras
So we have the same problems as many people with the Flipshare video cameras outputting mp4 files and them not working with Windows Movie Maker. We are deploying Windows 7 in September and so will not be using the new "Windows Live Movie Maker" that comes with it, as it doesn't seem practical to get everyone creating Windows Live accounts for that.
Our local secondary school ICT Technician has recommended we use Pinnacle Studio going forwards (and he used to work for Sky so I guess he knows his onions). I've had a look at the product description on line and yes, it does look all-singing, all-dancing. But I am slightly concerned it's maybe a bit too much for what we want (we are a 150-pupil primary school) and that it does need to be on a good spec PC (we'll be putting it onto Windows XP for a month before we deploy Windows 7).
Has anyone got any opinions on Pinnacle Studio or an alternative Windows 7 / mp4 compatible solution?
