  • Pinnacle Studio 18 puts advanced controls in a well-organized interface. It offers all you need to create a stunning film, and the SmartMovie wizard makes it convenient for those who don't want the trouble of putting clips together themselves. I liked the automatic timeline rendering feature as well as how easy it was to reach all the functions I wanted from the main screen.

  • Studio 17 is tricky to rate. It builds on a strong foundation and it hasn’t become any worse. It’s handling of 4K media is below par, though, and there isn’t much evidence that its development is a priority for Corel. We’d be inclined to hang on to version 16 – or buy version 17 only for its colour-grading abilities.

  • Overall, Pinnacle Studio has a strong core features and some superb extras, but development appears to have slowed.

    Pinnacle Studio 17 is my favorite mounting software because it is fast and versatile, As I'm a filmmaker and video editor it offers me the power and speed needed to create video and multimedia professional-looking HD and 3D. The manipulation and media managing are very accessible.These are the prices of the different versions:

    Pinnacle Studio: $59

    Pinnacle Studio Plus: $99

    Pinnacle Studio Ultimate: $129

    Pros :

    • A processing speed and encoding up to 10 times faster, with support for the latest formats and processing technologies.
    • The support 4K Ultra HD.
    • A new Live screen capture features to record what is happening on the screen.
    • A cleaning function and audio reinforcement with iZotope Music and Speech Cleaner.
    • 7 The presence of Red Giant plugins.
    • More than 2000 2D and 3D effects with the primary management points:
    • The effects and templates are provided with the software, so we had to buy them separately sometimes. In fact, Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate offers the best effects of video editing software. And include in particular the Red Giant Filmmaker Toolkit is a suite of three effects with advanced treatments colors. Indeed, other software also claims to offer effects worthy of a movie studio, but those of Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate reach another dimension.
    • Ever faster of imports.
    • Ability to view the timeline and the source clip simultaneously.
      Export and processing of stereoscopic 3D video.
    • Improved interface.
    • Unlimited number of tracks
    • Many possibilities of sharing like Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, iPad, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation.
    • The library items are easily identified by 4 color code (blue for the media, purple for projects, green and yellow for collections for content).
    • The solo button is finally disabled by default.
    • The .XMF files are imported correctly.

    Cons :

    • Still no Multicam, Motion Tracking.
    • No improvement titrator.
    • I had some issues with the export of my videos especially when I add more effects. Then I had to go back and check which sequence has effected problems, and it's a waste of time.

    There are now so many years that Pinnacle Studio (developed by Corel) is still present on the video editing market, it is now in its nineteenth edition and this has included many new features. For those who have a clear idea, pinnacle studio can be purchased and downloaded directly from the official website, the same is true of those who is an old Pinnacle Studio user and want to upgrade the product.

    Pros :

    • Pinnacle Studio is sold in three different licenses, and each has its own distinct characteristics: Basic: € 59.95 Plus: € 99.95 Ultimate: € 129.95 Each of these options is granted if you are old users Pinnacle Studio and want to make the upgrade.
    • The strength of Pinnacle Studio has always been to offer a very good product, very effective, for all budgets and for all levels of experience in video editing, however, if we analyze the direct competitors of the sale price is a good solution for a great value for money.
    • Analyzing the three different versions it soon becomes clear why prices do vary so much, the base version is a good product but has some limitations such examples the editing limited to 6 tracks (24 are in the plus, are unlimited in the ultimate).
    • Plus edition has the new audio Automatic balancing (audio ducking) and has new 3D editorial capabilities, many different types of effects and additional transactions.
    • The Ultimate version has big news, and also has this more additional effects and transitions than the Plus version, has some new video effects of NewBlue, has the HD decoding and is the only version that allows to work in 4K.
    • A peculiarity is that all versions include a free product training, this is very convenient if you are not experts in the video editing.
    • Other strengths that have always characterized this product is the ability to work in a highly detailed way on the timeline, the convenience of the toolbars available directly on the interface and easily interpretable and usable, a significant amount of transitions, filters and effects models available, good auto-correction capabilities.

    Cons :

    • Slightly slower the startup and resource consumption is quite high. There are now so many years that Pinnacle Studio (developed by Corel) is still present on the video editing market, it is now in its nineteenth edition and this has included many new features.
    • For those who have a clear idea, pinnacle studio can be purchased and downloaded directly from the official website, the same is true of those who is an old Pinnacle Studio user and want to upgrade the product.

    Pinnacle Studio is a simple, fast and versatile program, suitable for use at any stage of editing — from video capture to authoring. Any operation in the program is fast and simple, largely due to the huge number of templates and libraries. Application's interface is designed very carefully. The project is divided into three phases: organization and management of media content, video editing, and authoring of the project (the process of creating a user-friendly menu navigation on the DVD-drive or Blu-ray). Most settings are hidden by default. They don't overload the interface with unnecessary information and provide the opportunity to focus on the main objectives of the project. When there is a need to fine-tune the tool, one can always quickly access detailed parameters from the context menu. Pinnacle's effects are worth mention in this review. Think about this figure — there are more than two thousand animated filters, transition effects, video filters and pre-configured titles. Partly the library consists of the additional third-party modules that enhance and extend the standard capabilities of the program (for example, a popular add-on with additional effects from a Red Giant). The Pinnacle Studio engine uses NVIDIA CUDA and Intel QuickSync technologies. As a result, you can expect the significant performance gain, which in some cases helps to speed up the video processing up to ten times. Note that in encoding templates, there are some that let to work with high resolution up to 4K Ultra HD. Besides Pinnacle Studio supports both standard format AVCHD 2.0, which appeared in 2011, by adding new specifications for 3D modeling and 1080/60p, 50p. Pinnacle Studio ships with useful little tool — Live Screen Capturing utility. This tool for capturing on-screen video is very important when creating all sorts of presentations, training courses, demonstrations, etc. The video recording can be made in full-screen mode or for the specified the area to capture.

    Pros :

    • The great number of effects is available.
    • Great help 4K support.

    Cons :

    • Still buggy, especially with the big projects.
