Pinnacle Studio

Pinnacle Studio is a non-linear video editing software application manufactured by Pinnacle Systems, a division of Avid Technology. It is the consumer-level counterpart to Pinnacle's former professional-level software, Liquid Edition (now Avid Liquid). It also inherits from VOB Computer system’s Instant CD/DVD. Studio allows users to author video content, create VCD/DVDs, Blu-ray as well as AVCHD disks in its latest release, v15, all with menus and burn them without the need for any additional software.

Pinnacle Studio may be purchased separately, but is also included in bundled packages with various video capture hardware devices. These include analog and digital capture, either as PCI cards or connection via USB. In September 2007, Pinnacle released new versions of their Moviebox devices, including HDV and AVCHD support, shipped with their new Studio products.

In addition, a cut-down SE version entitled Pinnacle Studio QuickStart was included with the Dazzle (another USB capture device) and Pinnacle PCTV products, though since the release of Studio 12, the QuickStart version has been discontinued; Dazzle Video Creator
Platinum now ships with the regular basic version of Studio, and the PCTV products ship with VideoSpin .
