Pinnacle Studio 16 17 & 18 Ultimate – Lightsaber Tutorial

This tutorial on the lightsaber effect for Pinnacle Studio 16, Pinnacle Studio 17, and Pinnacle Studio 18 Ultimate will show you how to use the force and engage in a lightsaber battle in any of your videos. We use the same principles as the energy ball effect to create a lightsaber with the title editor.

How to delete pictures and videos all at once, in pinnacle 16?

Diamond says:

As soon as I add Effects, there is automatically voice delay in the video.
How to fix it?

Les Murrell says:

Learning a lot from your videos.  Just started using Pinnacle.

Pharmal says:

Does this work in Pinnacle 18 ultimate?

Rando Calrissian says:

This is awesome man!!! One question though…when I tried this on my computer, I key frame everything and make it line up but when I press play, the key frames lag behind and are not where they should be but when I try to edit it, it shows that they match up. I just got Pinnacle Studio 18 ultimate and it is disappointing that it is not working. Any idea why it does that?


i’m having problems sinking audio since I started using this program with Vmix. I’ve used MagiX, it appears my audio is at least 3-5 sec off. any suggestions
