      Hello Tatiana,

      Unfortunately Pinnacle Studio 21 is no longer a supported product, and our technicians would be unable to assist with this. We would suggest taking a look at the Knowledgebase, where we keep the solutions to many previously resolved issues, or the User Forums to see if anyone in the community has had a similar problem and resolved it.

    I have Pinnacle Studio running on My Video Editing Beast Desktop, and I do so love the Program. It can Capture footage from my MiniDV Tape Camcorders. Thanks for such a great NLE Video Program.

    Mam Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate. Na porzednim Pinacle Studio 9 Plus zgrywałem filmy nagrane na kasetach Mini DV kamerą cyfrową Samsung model VP-D371W korzystając ze złącza Fire Wire. Pytanie moje jest takie: Czy wykorzystując program Pinacle Studio 21 i korzystając z laptopa wyposażonego w gniado USB 3.0 będę mógł przegrywać nagrania z kase DV? Jestem w posiadaniu urządzenia Movie BOX DELUXE, które otrzymałem przy zakupie Programu Pinacle Studio 9 Plus. Pozdrawiam. Eugeniusz Jemielita.

    I have Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate. If I want to use New Blue Stablizer I see a “watermark” New Blue Stabilizer. Analysis required. I have searched on this but can’t find what to do.

    I just upgraded to 21 Ultimate, from 18 Ultimate, and can’t wait to get into the new features!
    I’ve used Pinnacle since 2005, and wouldn’t use any other video editing software.
    I’ve tried software like Sony Vegas and Adobe After Effects, and can say without a doubt, Pinnacle is hands down, the easiest and most intuitive package for video editing out there!

    Sono possessore di Pinnacle-studio-21 ed ho bisogno del manuale in Italiano, con i manuali video non mi è facile seguire i sottotitoli mentre seguono in contemporanea gli esempi con il mouse e scritte molto piccole, per me è difficile seguire.
    quindi vi chiedo la spedizione cartacea del manuale completo, ditemi come posso averlo al più presto. Ringrazio ed attendo vostra risposta.
    Distinti saluti. Girolamo La Piana

    In your advertisement (https://www.pinnaclesys.com/en/products/studio/ultimate/?itrkid=DCOTHRBUY)
    you offer a New Morph Transition effect.
    I bought a new Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate and this effect is missing.
    I would like to know why.
    Thanks for your response.

      Hello Pavel,

      The Morph Transition can be found from the navigator bar on the left by selecting Transitions > New. By default it will show up in this category under the 2-D heading. Let us know if you continue to have trouble finding it!

    Je vous ai acheté PINNACLE STUDIO 21 ULTIMATE par internet et il est installé sur mon PC, toutefois je m’attendais à recevoir par courrier par la suite un disque de ce modèle, rien n’est venu, est-ce normal?

      Hello Gilles,

      The backup installation disc is an optional add-on when purchasing the digital installer. Are you sure you added it to your purchase? It would show up in your invoice as “Backup Disc – Pinnacle 21”.

      If you purchased the backup disc and it has not arrived, we would suggest contacting our support team directly to look into the delivery! You can find them here:

      Hope this helps,
