  1. Pinnacle can only work with HD files, it can not handle 4k, never even mind 8k they are misleading about.
    I have a 10th gen core i7 with 32gb of ram and Nvidia card with 4gb or VRAM and pinnacle chokes at a simple 4k from GoPro7.
    I can play the 4k files in Windows on their own butter smooth, yet trying to scrub the same files in Pinnacle is grinding it to a halt.
    A horrible mess.
