Excerpt: Corel's Pinnacle Studio 18 Editing and more on your PC Pinnacle has been around for a long time, and, as the version number implies, Pinnacle Studio has undergone several changes since it was first launched.
Conclusion: The improvements and enhancements between Avid Studio and Pinnacle Studio 16 are huge, although you won’t be able to initially tell it by looking at the interface. But make no mistake, this update is big.
Pros: Improved interface, Faster performance, Great price for what you get, Tons of great add-ons included, More export options
Cons: Novices may be overwhelmed, Timeline zooming needs to be fixed, More expensive than other consumer level products, Need more cloud import options
Conclusion: Pinnacle Studio is a very capable video editing program, but it falls short in this crowded, competitive space due to interface problems, performance issues, and missing features.
Pros: Loads of effects. Native 64-bit operation. Good titling. 4K support. All content types are searchable, with tagging and star ratings available. Solid audio tools. Direct online sharing. Tutorial content.
Cons: Some interface irritations. Slower rendering performance than some of the competition. Choppy 4K performance. No multicam or motion tracking.
