Pinnacle's Studio 17 Ultimate (Boxed Version) is a user-friendly and efficient video editing software for the enthusiast/semi-professional editor. Much of the workflow is drag-and-drop, and the interface is mainly thumbnail-based. Rendering is up to 10x faster than in previous versions when editing in the AVC H.264 codec. The timeline offers unlimited video and audio tracks and can be expanded to display single frames for frame-accurate editing.

Studio 17 Ultimate supports 3D workflows and will support 4K Ultra HD video per a free firmware update scheduled for release shortly. (You will be sent an email notification upon release of the update.) 3D support includes importing 3D clips from camera systems like GoPro 3D, editing them on the timeline, and exporting them to YouTube 3D or to DVD disc for viewing on 3D HDTVs. Studio 17 Ultimate also features a Live Screen Capture function that allows you to record whatever you see on your computer screen for the purpose of creating how-to tutorials or simply for incorporation into your projects.

Studio 17 Ultimate features over 2000 keyframe-based effects, titles, transitions, and Montage templates, and a library of royalty-free music and sounds from Scorefitter. The Montage templates include themes like wedding, holiday, sci-fi, and comics and are customizable to your preferences. Studio 17 Ultimate also includes Red Giant's Filmmaker's Toolkit and Motion Graphics Toolkit, and iZotope's Music & Speech Cleaner for enhancing audio and removing unwanted noise. Studio 17 Ultimate comes with 50GB of free cloud storage from Box. 25GB are available right away and 25GB more will be provided upon product registration. Cloud storage will allow you to save files/projects in the cloud and access them from any internet-enabled computer.

In addition to timeline editing, Studio 17 Ultimate also features a Storyboard mode where you can create rough cuts of your projects and visualize how the projects will look in the end. This will let you edit in a more ordered manner back in the timeline. There's also a SmartMovie mode that automatically creates a finished project for you with whatever video and audio clips you designate. SmartMovie mode is useful for quickly creating cuts of family videos. Studio 17 Ultimate also features a Blu-ray and DVD authoring function for burning Blu-ray/DVD discs and creating disc menus. Studio 17 Ultimate is compatible with Windows 8, 7, and Vista and supports 64-bit processors/operating systems.

            Works well with only quad core computers, so if you are planning to use with a laptop it better be a Intel i7 or a quad core Intel or AMD desktop. Its very sluggish on a dual core laptop. Despite the requiremenst for ram, thats not the problem its the processor. Stay away if you are using it with a lowly core 2 Duo machine. I am using it with a quad core and 8 core desktop and it runs fine. Its an easy program to use, a monkey can figure it out. The tech side is pretty lousy but like I said, a monkey can figure it out, no problems so far after 4 projects.

                    When it was owned by Avid it was not bad for a consumer product and I go back at least 10 versions. Thinking it would be a great update, not so much since Corel now owns it.If I could return it I would. Don't waste your money instead go for the entry level of Adobe.

                          What can I say ? Very simply ..Pinnacle 17 is the worst program that I have ever used. I used the pinnacle 9 on XP for 9 years and it got the job done just fine. If you need a multi button menu, you can forget it with 17. The 9 was a breeze to create the sixteen button menu which I used. Does this program freeze or crash?, I'm sorry I can't tell you, never got that far... If Technical assistance is what you need, you can forget that to. It's non-existent. But they did figure out that if they took a simple program and made it confusing, ..... THEN THEY CAN CHARGE YOU MONEY TO TELL YOU HOW TO UUUSSSEE IT. Boy, that sure is nice of them! I would recommend this product to ABSOLUTLY NO ONE !! If you want to waste [$] this is the place to do it! At this point, I intend to go with a proven product, you know, the one that also does audio. Yeah, that's the one. This is an excellent example of "Just Cause You Have A Name - Don't Make You Good " P.S.(The one star rating is there only because it has to be and it's as low as you can go.) Good Luck, Bill

                          This company charges outrageous fees for customer support, and the software is designed to ensure that you will need customer support.For example, the "free and easy" download feature for obtaining the very large number of activation keys needed for the audio and video codecs takes me to a blank web page. The only way to get the codecs I've already paid for is to pay $[$]a pop to get them through customer "service." And there are dozens.Search elsewhere for information on this company's products and you will see that mine is not an isolated experience.

                              I have used Pinnacle Studio for over 12 years and loved their product running on Windows XP. Microsoft no longer supports XP so I bought a new powerful desktop running 8.1 Pro. I purchased this product and cannot get it to produce anything. Corel's customer support is nonexistent. They want $70 per year to be able to talk with them. I am a Microsoft Certified System Engineer and I recognize junk when I see it. This is junk. Do not buy it!
