Pinnacle Dazzle overview

  • 1Description

Dazzle DVD Recorder HD from Pinnacle is a hardware/software package that lets you capture video from various devices and edit it. It includes a USB capture device and Pinnacle's Studio HD v.14 capture and editing software. It supports capturing from any analog or digital device, including a VCR, camcorder, and gaming console, via S-Video or Composite RCA inputs. Please note, the USB device isn't capable of capturing without the included Studio HD v.14. Also, if you'd like to edit the captured video in an editing program other than Studio HD, you can do so by converting the captured video to a format compatible with your program, but you'll need an optional converter software.

The keystone of the package is the Dazzle USB capture device, with an RCA composite video input, an S-Video input, stereo analog audio inputs, and a USB 2.0 output. If you've got a free USB 2.0 input on your Windows computer and some free hard drive space, you can use the Dazzle device to start capturing video to your computer, so you can edit it with the included software and share it just about any digital way you can imagine – to YouTube, on DVD, or to files that are compatible with iPods, Sony PSP, or Microsoft Xbox.

And don't stop at mere editing. Pinnacle Studio HD version 14 software helps you create multi-stream video effects and apply pre-defined themes with ease. It includes Hollywood-style animations and transitions and more than 80 Montage themes, so you can customize and personalize your refreshed video just about any way you can imagine. The Windows software package also helps you create DVD menus.

Note: Video capture is not in HD. You can use S-Video or composite video outputs on an HD camcorder to capture video, however.
