Import Your Digital Media

You can even import 3D clips from cameras like GoPro®. Pinnacle Studio also supports tape-based3 and analog devices3, and even imports audio files in 5.1 surround format.
Edit Anywhere, Anytime With iPad and the Cloud
Pinnacle Studio features integrated cloud access so that your media files and projects are always handy, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Project Packages lets you bundle together all of the media files related to a given movie, taking the work out of organizing and assuring that you always have all the files you need. You can even start editing projects on the go with Pinnacle Studio for iPad1, then transfer them to Pinnacle Studio for polishing. We’ve thrown in 50GB2 of free cloud access from Box to get you started.
With the built-in media library, it’s simple to organize and rate your favorite video clips, photos, music, and other creative elements so you can easily find and reuse them in various projects. You can even correct and enhance your source media right inside Pinnacle Studio’s media library without the need for additional apps. Crop, pan-and zoom, and eliminate red eye from photos. EQ and clean up noisy audio. Color-correct video and stabilize shaky footage with Hollywood-proven technology. The changes and effects you add to your files in the media library apply whenever you use them in a project or export them for other uses—saving time and streamlining your movie making.
Edit Your Movies—Fast
Pinnacle Studio gives you the flexibility to make movies the way that best suits you or the needs of a given project. For instant results, drag-and-drop your desired media elements from the library into SmartMovie or SmartSlide to automatically produce great videos—complete with music. You can also use Storyboard mode to easily create first drafts and visualize how your story will unfold.
At any point, you can switch to the timeline for more traditional editing. Pinnacle Studio lets you set source clip trim in/out points, then send trimmed clips right to the timeline to include in your project. Six tracks give you the ability to create sophisticated picture-in-picture and multi-layer effects in HD or 3D with frame accuracy—just like a Hollywood pro. It all happens at state-of-the-art lightning speeds thanks to optimization for the latest acceleration technologies like 64-bit operation, NVIDIA® CUDA™, and Intel® Quick Sync Video.
From importing to editing to sharing, Pinnacle Studio puts the power of industry-leading, Hollywood-proven stereoscopic 3D technology right in your hands. Import 3D video clips from sources like GoPro® 3D cameras.
