Simplicity and Ease-of-Use
Pinnacle Studio Plus is powerful, easy-to-use home video editing software.
Video editing software is only as good as it is intuitive and easy to use. Studio Plus couldn't be any more intuitive. The software boasts an extremely user-friendly interface that guides you through your editing in three effortless steps: Capture, Edit/Enhance, and Share. It's that simple.
Studio Plus has a SmartMovie feature that walks you through the steps to create amazing movies by adding spectacular effects, transitions, titles and music in a matter of a few minutes. A pan-and-zoom feature lets you create high-quality movies by animating your digital photos with close-ups and pans and scans in any direction. Included with the software are hundreds of extraordinary keyframeable and format independent (SD and even HD) real-time effects and transitions, powered by the both legendary and professional Pinnacle Liquid Edition engine. With added keyframing, you can actually control the characteristics and parameters of an effect on a frame-by-frame basis. These effects and transitions can even be previewed immediately in their full resolution directly on your computer monitor. A SmartSound feature provides a vast library of categorized royalty-free music that you can add to your creation -- even in surround sound. Best of all, the music you choose will let you match precisely, second for second, the duration of the video clip or movie you are editing.
Studio Plus also includes all the tools you need to take the quality of your work to the next level. A unique video cleaning toolkit helps you to restore old damaged video tapes. An image stabilization feature gives you the tools to take care of that unfortunate shaky and jerky footage. And if you have video footage that was shot under poor lighting conditions, don't despair -- Studio Plus features a color correction tool to help you with that as well. Eliminating extraneous and distracting sounds such as wind and rain is no problem at all with Studio Plus' noise reduction tools.
Built-in DVD Authoring and Instant Transfer
With a fully integrated CD and DVD authoring workflow, Studio Plus lets you easily create DVDs with menus and custom navigation on the fly. You can also create DVDs with menus without first copying your files over to your PC hard drive.
As with its other great features, Studio Plus makes the process of working in different formats as seamless as possible. You can capture video from the latest consumer cameras and devices including DVD video cameras and even cell phones. And thanks to the power of the professional-level Pinnacle Liquid Effects Engine, you can now actually edit with keyframeable real-time effects and transitions in truly stunning high quality HD! You can even create the extraordinary real-time multi-track editing and effects that you see on TV, such as chroma key (green or blue screen) and picture-in-picture (PIP). The chroma key effect gives you the power to position the star of your video anywhere in the world and beyond, while the PIP effect lets you place one video inside another in real-time.
The software also lets you import videos from non-encrypted DVDs for added enhancement and re-mastering. Another great feature, brand new to Studio Plus, is its unique background saving feature. With this feature, you can work uninterrupted and avoid the time-consuming steps of saving your work in the format of your choice. In other words, you can keep working on your project while you are simultaneously rendering your project to the top quality format of your choice. So, regardless of whether your final project will be for CD, DVD or the Web, all you need to do is to create amazing videos, and Studio Plus will take care of the rest.
