    I’m having trouble after a movie is finish, being able to copy it to a DVD. Some of the videos are over two hours long. When I was using Pinnacle 14 I was able to see a pie graft which would show the percentage of quality and how it change with the length of the movie. We were able to see a breakdown of option like disc File etc.

    I have been working Pinnacle 21 and now 22 and do not see an easy way to put the produce movie to a DVD that can be used on and seen on any PC.

    I like using the Pinnacle program for it ease of reworking these movies.

    If there is simple way to make these copies from Pinnacle 21 or 22 like there is in Pinnacle 14 would you advise me how?

    Thank you

      Hello Henri,

      In order to prevent any potential link errors in Pinnacle Studio, we would suggest you start by ripping the audio from the CD to your computer. Once it is stored locally, you can import it into Pinnacle Studio like any other media file! We have a tutorial on Importing and Managing Media that you may find helpful for this step.

      Hope this helps,

    Is er ondersteuning voor CR2 fotoformaat in studio 22 ?

      Hello Bollestan,

      Pinnacle Studio 22 does not currently support Canon RAW image files. If you wanted to use images from your Canon DSLR, you would first need to convert them to a supported format, which includes: JPS, BMP, GIF, JPG, PCX, PSD, TGA, TIF, WMF, PNG, and J2K.

    Je decouvre pinacle. Comment importer les images a partir d’un camescope numerique ? merçi de votre reponse

      Hello Gilbert,

      Unless you wanted to copy them manually and organize them yourself, the simplest way to import files from your camcorder would be let the Pinnacle Importer handle copying those video files! From the Importer (open the importer by clicking ‘Import’ at the top of Pinnacle Studio), set the Import Mode is set to Copy (so that you don’t have to have your camcorder plugged in every time you edit a video), select your camcorder from the tabs at the top of the Importer, and find your videos on the right hand navigation menu!

      You can find a more thorough explanation of importing files and the Importer screen itself in the user guide, here:
