Among other enhancements, Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus Video Editing Software for Windows - download version - improves upon version 17 by adding native support for 64-bit processor architecture, enabling increased performance when used on 64-bit copies of Windows. On top of all of the features found in the standard version, the Plus edition gives you Live Screen Capture, complete with audio from the computer's mic input as well as stereoscopic 3D editing and output. So your video will sound as good as it looks, Pinnacle has included 17 royalty-free audio tracks from Triple Scoop Music, a new addition that compliments the Scorefitter Sounds & Music library which was also available in version 17. Once done editing, you can share your creations to DVD or AVCHD disc, upload to social media websites, or export for playback on a range of devices.

What's New for Version 18?

64-Bit Performance
64-bit support means Pinnacle can take advantage of more RAM and perform many computation more quickly than is possible with 32-bit. A 64-bit version of Windows is required to take advantage of this feature
Enhanced: Live Screen Capture
Record directly from your screen, capturing both system audio and microphone sound. For version 18, Pinnacle has simplified the process of bringing your captured files to the main timeline to use in movies, presentation, and training videos
17 Royalty-Free Tracks
Pinnacle Studio Plus now includes 17 music tracks - in addition to the Scorefitter library - for you to incorporate into the soundtrack of your movies

Video Editing

Drag-and-Drop HD Video Editing
Choose the editing approach that's right for your project. For instant results, drag-and-drop your desired media elements from the library into SmartMovie to automatically make complete videos, including music. Use Storyboard mode to create first drafts and visualize your movie. At any point, switch to the timeline for more traditional and precise editing
Timeline Editing (24 Tracks)
With 24 tracks, Pinnacle Studio Plus lets you create sophisticated picture-in-picture and multi-layer effects in HD or 3D-just like a Hollywood pro. See source clips and your timeline edit preview simultaneously for intuitive flow. Set source clip trim in/out points, then drag trimmed clips right into the timeline for fast precision editing
Edit Anywhere, Anytime
Work on projects anywhere with Pinnacle Studio for iPad (available separately), then transfer them to Pinnacle Studio for further polishing. Try Project Packages to 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

Audio Editing

Scorefitter Sounds & Music
Add music with the included Scorefitter library of royalty-free sounds and songs - they even automatically adjust to fit the length of your movies

Stereoscopic 3D Support

Make Movies in Stereoscopic 3D
Import 3D video clips from sources like GoPro 3D camera systems or Panasonic cameras using the MVC format. Edit in various viewing modes, add true 3D effects, and enjoy the immersive 3D experience with NVIDIA 3D Vision optimization and GeForce support (compatible graphics card required). Export to YouTube 3D, AVCHD 3D, and more for viewing on 3D HDTVs, Sony PS3, and other 3D devices. Pinnacle Studio Plus even lets you mix 2D and 3D in the same project
Advanced 3D Features
Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus also has advanced stereoscopic 3D features, like editing 3D in the timeline just like HD:
  • Support for NVIDIA 3D Vision enables viewing in both full-screen and window modes where a compatible graphics card and display are available
  • View 3D on dual monitors and export "side-by-side" formats recognized by most 3D HDTVs
  • Auto-color correct for both eyes and control stereoscopic 3D depth (parallax effect)

Titles, Effects, and Image Correction

Titles and Overlays
Add titles to your photos and videos, or overlay a graphic on your project and set the length of duration
Energize with Over 1,800 Effects, Transitions and Templates
Get creative with 1,800+ 2D/3D effects, animated titles, and transitions. Keyframe-based control gives you precision timing over how your effects, titles, and transitions move or charge over time. The included Montage templates provide preset themes - weddings, sports, holidays, sci-fi, comics and more. You can customize these to get just the right look
Rotate and Flip Video
Whether from an action camera mounted upside-down or a smartphone in "portrait" mode, you can flip the image so it's the right way
Photo Slideshow
Create photo slideshows complete with transitions, titles, and effects, or combine photo and video for the perfect montage
Stop Motion and Green Screen
Create animations and fast-motion effects with stop-motion capture. Pinnacle Studio even lets you superimpose people you've shot in front of a green screen over different backgrounds

File Management

Import all Your Digital Media
Import your videos and photos manually or automatically from virtually any device: camcorders, digital cameras, webcams, tablets, mobile phones, handheld audio recorders, and more. Import 3D clips from cameras like GoPro and formats like Panasonic MVC. Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus also supports tape-based and analog devices, and even audio files in 5.1 surround format
Organize and Tag Your Media
With the built-in media library, you can organize your favorite video clips, photos, music, and other creative elements for easy location and reuse later. Tag and rate your media files, as well as group them into categories for even faster access. Crop, pan-and zoom, and eliminate red eye from photos. EQ and clean up noisy audio. Color-correct video and stabilize shaky footage

Export and Sharing

    When you're ready to share your HD and 3D videos, Pinnacle Studio Plus makes it simple to post them on Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo. You can also create DVDs and AVCHD discs complete with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Export to popular formats like Adobe Flash FLV, MPEG-4, and DivX, as well as popular devices like Microsoft Xbox, Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii, Apple TV and Apple iPad
