Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate
22 July 2012
Conclusion: Corel takes the look of Avid Studio and underpins it with faster code in this full-featured, fast-performing nonlinear video editing program.
Pros: Attractive interface design. Tons of video effects. 3D import, editing and output. Direct upload to Facebook, Box, YouTube, and Vimeo. Disc authoring with lots of menu templates. Decent audio correction and content. Fast rendering performance.
Cons: Multi-track preview is sluggish on AMD graphics hardware. Some interface procedures less intuitive than in other apps. No 4K UHD support.
Conclusion: The new Pinnacle Studio is vastly more impressive than its predecessor, because it's based on the higher-end Avid Studio rather than on its nominal predecessor. I have no problem giving it a very high rating – Corel has taken the smart interface and toolset of Avid Studio and got this package right, with good performance, new helpful tools, and more output options. Pinnacle Studio 16 really does have all the tools any sophisticated amateur video editor would need.
Pros: Attractive interface design, Tons of video effects, 3D import, editing and output, Fast rendering performance
Cons: Multi-track preview slow on AMD graphics, Interface can be unintuitive at times
