Pinnacle Studio 10
Rebuilt From the Ground Up on the Pinnacle Liquid Edition Engine
Experience the power, quality, reliability and pinpoint control of the professionally esteemed Pinnacle Liquid Edition Engine that now drives Studio 10. The Liquid Edition Engine brings you higher quality results in considerably less time.

Real-time Full Resolution Preview for Uninterrupted Workflow
Immediately preview all of your projects in full resolution on your primary or secondary computer monitor at anytime. The real-time preview functionality is format independent so you can sample effects, titles and more and view the results in full resolution in all supported formats including HDV. Now you can make editorial decisions in real-time while your creativity is actively percolating.

Capture, Edit and Share Natively in High Quality HD
Capture video from the latest consumer HD cameras, DVD video cameras and even cell phones . Once captured, instantly drag and drop your clips into the timeline and edit them in their native formats. Native editing means you don’t have to waste time and jeopardize quality with transcoding. With Studio Plus version 10, you can now capture, edit and share in MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4*, DV, AVI, Windows Media, DivX*, and HD with HDV.

Output of DivX & MPEG-4 files possible if codec installed on your PC. The import/editing of DixX and MPEG-4 files requires the Advanced Codec Pack, which is included with your Studio MediaSuite upgrade (or can be activated inside your Studio Plus upgrade for $9.99).

Mix and Match Formats in the Same Project
Not only is there greatly expanded support for more sources and fo rmats with Studio Plus version 10, now you can actually mix and match all of the supported formats with similar frame rates in one timeline. Many of the top professional editing applications do not include this feature.

More Control with Keyframing
Keyframing gives you the added control of changing the characteristics of video plug-ins at any point in time. This enables you to create and line up video effects with great accuracy to unique audio and video queues. Imagine moving your picture-in-picture across the screen to follow a moving object in the primary video track? Or, varying the degree of a blur over time in a single clip. It’s all possible in Studio Plus version 10 with a few clicks of the mouse.

More Included Video/Audio Plug-Ins and Hollywood FX Transitions
Studio Plus version 10 includes 11 new video plug-ins, three new audio plug-ins and two new Hollywood FX transition packs (32 new transitions in all).

Maximize the Presentation of Your Digital Images with HD Pan and Zoom
Retain the highest image resolution while creating captivating high quality HD movies. Now take advantage of the inherent quality of your original digital images when animating them with close ups and Pan and Zoom in any direction with Ken Burns like effects. Zoom in on your subject’s face and retain true HD clarity. Why drop the quality of your images and lose creative options when you can edit your images in true HD? If you have digital images, you now have HD content and are ready to edit in HD with Studio Plus version 10.

Save Time and Resources with Instant Transfer Direct to DVD
For those times when you want to quickly archive or share your work without editing, you can now easily transfer your video directly to DVD with stylized menus and chapters. You no longer need to spend the extra time consuming step of copying your files on to your hard drive first. Instantly and safely archive your video tapes in full digital quality on DVD in less than half the time it takes with other solutions.

Manage All Your Digital Media with Pinnacle Media Manager
Quickly and easily find, manage and organize all of your videos, photos, audio and music files for drag and drop editing within Studio Plus version 10.

Creative Options with Variable Speed Control
Have fun with the slow and fast motion video and audio playback special effects. Additional features include reverse video and the ability to lock the pitch of the audio when playing a clip in fast or slow motion. This lets you playback talking video at a faster or slower pace while maintaining the accustomed speech patterns.

Save Time and Resources with Intelligent Rendering
Retain the highest quality while saving time and disk space with Studio Plus version 10’s new and improved intelligent rendering. With intelligent rendering, only the portion of your project that has been altered needs to be rendered. Studio Plus’ background rendering takes full advantage of intelligent rendering. The combination of these two features will sharply reduce and in many cases even eliminate the incremental time needed to render out your final project for CD, DVD or the Web. With most competing applications, the entire project must be rendered in all situations.

Protect Your Project with InstantSave
With the unique InstantSave™ technology, every step you make is immediately and automatically protected. You can even drop back to an earlier version of your project by using the Undo function. So, if your computer gets accidentally turned off or there is a power outage, you can rest assured that your most recent work will be saved. Not only will the work be saved, you will also have access to your undo history so that you can take the project back to an earlier version.

Purchased the Ultimate 21 not a year ago along with a new HP computer designed for editing videos. Program itself was ok but difficult to find files even though I put different names on files, would just read the date transferred to program. Worked on a 20 minute video for over 7 months for a firehouse 100th anniversary, and will only play from the software. Tried saving, burning, etc. for hours on different formats and to my computer and will play on disk on USB drive without flickering pictures. Called tech support, can't understand half of their broken english, just to get a tech ticket and hung up. CAN'T SAVE THE VIDEO!!!!

Review by Peskybird on May 16, 2019 Version: Pinnacle Ultimate 21 OS: Windows 10 Ease of use: 4/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 2/10




Have tried many version of Pinnacle in the past and all have been unstable, crashing unexpectedly during crucial edits.
Not sure why I haven't tried anything else, just used to it I suppose …

Since v21 installed, all seemed ok, hadn't used it much on the laptop, then v22 come out and adverts all the time popping up (within about 3 to 4 months of me buying v21), since the update available, Pinnacle v21 constant crashing just as before.
Leads me to believe it's just a scam, purposely crashing the app to make you believe a newer version will fix all the problems.

Hate the UI on newer version compared to older, over complicated to apply just the most basics of features.
Will be hanging up supporting pinnacle and looking elsewhere.


PowerDirector on Android, works so much better than this, stable, quick and efficient.


Review by Daniel Stevens on Dec 28, 2018 Version: v21 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 4/10 Overall: 3/10




I have been using Studio 15 for many years now, and apparently I still need to use it, it was the last really functional version. I was burned buying version 18, I paid good money for it, and it NEVER worked. I ended up simply uninstalling it and cutting my losses. I finally decided to try version 22 so I bit the bullet and paid for it. Astoundingly, it hasn't crashed on my Windows 7/64 machine, but they couldn't make burning a Blu-Ray or DVD any more difficult, in fact I still can't figure it out so I'm dead in the water again. If anyone actually knows how to edit files together and burn a disc please let me know! nlangdon@decofilms.com.

Same issue. Can not use it. Upgraded my computer. Still crashes every time with all the specs Installed. Lost my money on this product. Its headed to the bin. DO NOT BUY!! I thought Coral would be legit. Going to ask for my money back under fair trade laws. Just wasted a full day trying to get it working. Bought a new computer!!!
