Pinnacle's three video editing programs provide for every need and budget
Pinnacle, a part of the Corel Family, has announced updates to their video editing software, Pinnacle Studio, to provide the consumer with professional movie-making results. The Pinnacle Studio 19 family consists of three versions: Pinnacle Studio 19 Ultimate, Pinnacle Studio 19 Plus and Pinnacle Studio 19.
The flagship Pinnacle Studio 19 Ultimate supports 64-bit, 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processors with unlimited track frame accurate editing in 4K, HD and 3D. There is also support for VFR, and XAVC and DVCPRO HD decoding as well as MXF import. New features include the Multi-Camera Editor, which allows you to edit footage from up to 6 cameras/2 additional soundtracks and features both manual syncing and Audio Syncing for automatic clip alignment. Audio Ducking is another new tool for lowering background sound so as to keep dialog and narration clear. Also included are over 2,000 effects, transitions and titles, plus NewBlue bonus effects, which include the new Video Essentials IV.
Pinnacle Studio 19 Plus also supports 64-bit, 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processors and has a 4 track Multi-Camera Editor, Audio Syncing and Audio Ducking. To the 1800+ effects, titles and templates, add 24 track editing and Live Screen capture. Both HD and 3D movies can be shared to social media (Facebook, Youtube, and Vimeo), with Pinnacle MyDVD providing an easy path for authoring. 
Pinnacle Studio 19’s Muti-Camera Editor edits footage from 2 cameras and aligns clips automatically with Audio Syncing. It also supports 64-bit, 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processors for enhanced HD processing and playback abilities. There are over 1500 2D/3D effects provided, along with the ScoreFitter music library, as well as Pinnacle MyDVD and social media sharing capabilities. 
Michel Yavercovski, Director of Product Management for Pinnacle, points out that the Pinnacle Studio 19 family stretches the possibilities of consumer video editing. “And this all comes together with boosted performance and support for the latest hardware and formats to give you the ultimate environment for creating impressive, high-quality video projects,” he said.
All three programs are available now: Pinnacle Studio 19 Ultimate at $129.95; Pinnacle Studio 19 Plus at $99.95; Pinnacle Studio 19 at $59.95. Upgrade pricing is also available.

  1. I just wish these reviews of editing software would give the bad news along with the rave reviews. Our software system today is a “Let the users debug our software” attitude. As a videographer and retired (think C programmer) software developer I can live with this because I enjoy editing. Now that Pinnacle belongs to Corel it seems they have the same problems. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent trying to burn to Blu-ray using Pinnacle 19 Ultimate (and Corel Video Studio) without success. That and creating an image is just not reliable. I’ve tried every combination of computer up to an Erazer i7 gaming setup without much luck. I’ve been to their forum and it seems like everyone is having some kind of trouble with the software. I wish you reviewers would tell it like it really is. I like Videomaker magazine and have been a subscriber for many years. You’ve treated me well over the years and especially that great class in Puerto Villarta. I like to keep informed with all the features of your mag, but your reviews just seem to be slanted in favor of these companies that should be doing a better job of debugging. Do you hear me, Matthew? Seriously, Great magazine except the reviews.
