    "Up and Running in 5 Minutes"

    December 22, 2012   |   By eatdrumz

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    Very easy to learn
    Great, simple, common sense UI
    Did what I wanted it to do

    Cons

    Not as many gadgets, but it's FREE!

    Summary

    For anyone who thinks this program is too hard to learn, I really don't have an answer for them, as it is the simplest video editor out there. The only con, is, it's the simplest editor out there, but hey, for free, it does what you want, when you want it to, and quickly.
    Yes, if you want to work with MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and related formats beyond a 15-day trial period, you'll need the Spin Pack add-on. Luck for me, I can use Avi, WMV, FLV, ect, and for free, I'm jazzed! Great product!!!

    "If u are new to video editing. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT."

    October 23, 2012   |   By Danimas

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    They have a nice catchy name.
    They have a cool logo.

    Cons

    Software is extremely difficult to navigate.
    Their "Support" Sucks.
    (try calling them or sending them an email if you don't believe me)

    Summary

    I hope I keep people from buying this garbage. Capturing video, simple editing should not be this difficult.

    I am so incensed, I have actually taken the time to write and post this, which I never take the time to do.

    "Not. Free. Stop lying."

    June 19, 2012   |   By Gotterakathing

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    Just a little like Sony Vegas, which sucks due to it's expensive price

    Cons

    Bam. After you finish installing, they say "OGM BUY THIS CRAP NOW OR SUFFAR" or words to that effect. I promptly stopped using it. That is not how you make a free video editor.

    Summary

    I really don't want to say this, but if you are looking for a video editor, either go pirate Sony Vegas or stick to Windows Movie Maker. 1/5 since I am feeling generous.

    Updated on Jun 19, 2012

    Maybe a 2/5 but still, not free, and utterly worthless.

    "Has good features but often doesn't work!"

    February 18, 2012   |   By wiseguy00

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    Videospin is a bit like Comic Life and Windows Movie Maker combined.
    It has simple editing features which makes it easy to learn and the text and grpahic overlays (ALA comic life) makes it way better than moviemaker. It has a nice audio editing feature -where you can lower the level of the audio at any point without having to clip the video. Other features are similar to moviemaker so the learning curve by switching from WMM to VS is small.

    Cons

    Registration is a nuisance - even after following their instructions it didn't work first time. To get the full functioning like import and editing Mp4 videos (otherwise limited to wmv and avi)you have to purchase the codec pack.
    Support is non existent - it's like "you're buying a cheap product - so suffer the consequences!!" if you have any problems expect to wait a looooong time for a reply - if you're lucky!!.
    if often crashes!!

    Summary

    It's great when it works - which is more a rarity. With a little more development and bug fixes and proper support - this could be a great low end video editor. It has some great features which would have gladly paid a little more for a more stable version, and one that is backed by the developers.
    If you want hassle free software - this isn't it. Stick with moviemaker or save for a higher end video editor.

    "Destroyed my project with 40 hours of work!!"

    December 26, 2011   |   By pinnacle7

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    Easy to use but doesn't ever work properly.

    Cons

    Tried free version then when I went to BUY the codec pack to finish my project I had to update to the 2.o version which COMPLETELY destroyed my project. My project opened just fine until the purchase of $14.99 then it would never open again only to freeze at startup. I am so unhappy I have demanded a refund (took forever to find any kind of contact info even their email contact has no address). Now I need to start over from scratch. My Christmas gift ruined!!

    Summary

    Waste of time and money.

    "Very good for what it does"

    October 21, 2011   |   By Victech1

    Version: Pinnacle Video Spin 1.1.2.542

    Pros

    For quickly making video clips from larger video files, the software is simple to use. Coming from Pinnacle, one has an optimistic view that the software should be robust.

    Cons

    Restricted compared with more comprehensive packages but this is expected.

    Summary

    Excellent for the purpose.
