Email this Article Video editing can be an intimidating and time-consuming process for many small business owners, but Pinnacle Studio 14, by Avid Technology, makes it relatively easy. This video editing and production tool is aimed at the consumer market, but I found it ideal for most of my business needs. Pinnacle comes with cool features: User-friendly video capture and edit process. Multiple ways to export your final video; including a direct to YouTube option, to an iPod format, even export to a Wii or Xbox. You can burn directly to a DVD or Blu-ray if you have the right hardware, of course. You can add Dolby Digital surround sound for the audio buffs out there. It also comes with Red Giant, an effects suite, which are some of the same special effects you see in mainstream movies.
Watch video Control Hue, Saturation, and Luminance with modal window guides. Easily shift levels on a per-color basis to transform the appearance of scenes and subjects. Adjust color levels across your clip simultaneously, or by individual color for precision with the Tone Curve. Get a pro-level look by controlling your shadows, midtones, and highlights. View, identify, and alter the color profile of clips with new Selective Vectorscope. Correct color shifts between clips to keep skin tones looking natural, draw attention to objects, improve project cohesion, and more.
