    Hello there!
    I have Pinnacle Studio 12 and make slideshows. I would like to know if any of the new P.S. 22 versions will still allow me to crop and pan the pictures? My other concern is what file formats are offered to record in HD video?

    why are there no audio controls showing in 22?

    • Adam Reply

      Hello Clive,

      You can access the Audio Editor by selecting the Editor panel in the top left (next to Library), and then selecting the music icon (just below the Library button). This will switch that entire panel over to Pinnacle’s audio tools.

      Hope this helps,

    I am wanting to put an additional clip at the very front of an already created movie. How do I do that without having to make numerous changes on the timeline?

    December 15, 2018 at 10:27 am
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Pat,

      All you need to do is set the Editing mode to Insert! This can be done using the dropdown in the top right of the timeline. By default it is set to Smart Editing, meaning Pinnacle Studio will make some editing decisions based on how it sees your behaviour when you add or move clips. This can do the same thing as the Insert function if the Smart Editor thinks that is what you want, but to be safe you can switch to the Insert mode. Once there, any videos you add will shove everything to the right of them down, making room for the new clip. For a more complete explanation, check out our How to Use Different Editing Modes tutorial!

      Hope this helps,

    Io non conosco l´inglese, ho comprato da poco Pinnacle Studio 22 in italiano, ma non sono riuscito a trovare un manuale utente in italiano ne da internet ne dal sito di Pinnacle. Come devo fare? Mi dareste, gentilmente, delle indicazioni su come procurarmi un manuale in italiano?
    Grazie.

    Is er een support voor RAW files (CR2) of moeten die eerst geconverteerd worden en zo ja wat wordt in dat geval aangeraden?

    October 10, 2018 at 3:07 pm
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Bollestan,

      Pinnacle Studio does not currently support the CR2 RAW format (or any raw image formats for that matter). There are many editing programs that can convert RAW files, including our own AfterShot and PaintShop programs. For reference, Pinnacle Studio 22 supports the following image formats: JPS, BMP, GIF, JPG, PCX, PSD, TGA, TIF, WMF, PNG, J2K

      Hope this helps!

        Boa tarde! E como faço para obter os codecs citados e como faço para instalar esses codecs no Pinnacle 22 ultimate?
        Obrigado!

        • Adam Reply

          Hello Dario,

          Not a problem! Installing codecs is a bit like installing fonts. When you install a codec pack on your computer, most video playback and editing software – Pinnacle included – will detect and use the new codec.

    I have Pinnacle 20, would I be able to read Pinnacle 20 projects in Pinnacle 22?

      Hello Jean-Michel,

      Yes! Pinnacle 22 can open Pinnacle 20 projects, meaning you can pick up your editing right where you left off with all the new features in Pinnacle 22.

    I just downloaded Studio 22 Standard and I am unable to find the Motions button in the Title Editor. Only the Looks button, but no Motion button. I am not able to scroll credits.

      Hello Ken,

      Advanced editing features (such as Motion Titles, Volume Keyframing, Detaching Audio, and Audio Ducking) are only available in the Plus or Ultimate versions of Pinnacle Studio 22. Here is a link to the comparison chart for more information on the differences.

    Hi there,
    I have just purchased a GoPro Fusion, how do I us the Fusion footage from the two SD cards in Pinnacle Studio 22 Ultimate?

    August 20, 2018 at 5:36 pm
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Trevor,

      We would suggest using the included Fusion Studio app to transfer the video files to your PC, which will also let you stitch the files on the camera into a video file ready for editing. Once they are on your computer, just import them into Pinnacle Studio and you’re ready to go!

      We love GoPro cameras (hope you’re enjoying your new Fusion!), but since we don’t make them, if you run into more trouble with the Fusion itself we’d have to point you at the GoPro Fusion Manual.

      Hope this helps,

    Hoe kom ik aan een Backup DVD van Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 22 welke ik gedownload heb?

    August 18, 2018 at 5:20 am
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Ben de Groot,

      Backup DVDs can be ordered at the same time that you purchase the program itself. If you have already purchased Pinnacle Studio 22 Ultimate and did not add a backup DVD set to the cart at the time, we would suggest contacting our support staff at +49 800723845 to help that sorted out!

      Hope this helps,
