And, in my case at least, this menu creation function is one of the most fragile and unstable areas of the program, causing it to literally crash more than occasionally when I make menus. Your mileage may vary.

Yes i did not realise the navigation menus were there,but i gave up after countless crashes as soon as the dvd renders started.

It is just so amazing to me that others are able to use Pinnacle without complaints since I have found it to be terribly unstable.

The fact that a product is in its 12th version and still has basic problems which cause it to crash often is inexcusable, and I would have never bought it if a trial version had been available.

Of all the dozen or more companies who make video editng software, I have left comments on their forums and exchanged helpful advice and opinions, and only 2 of them have very systematically deleted any complaints regarding their products, in most cases deleting entire threads with other people expressing the same complaints: Magix and Pinnacle.

Guess which ones I will NEVER buy again......
