I have Avid Studio. I don’t have a snapshot button on mine and I also do have a snapshot option when I go to setup. I can’t remember what video it was but I recall you having this when you showed your Avid Studio videos before the new Pinnacle arrived.  The only snapshot option I see available is catching it from a device through import.  Any helpful ideas?

Hola amigos tengo el Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate pero no sé cómo funciona ya que es completamente diferente que el 15 que es el que yo uso, me podrían informar sobre esto , oslo agradecería que fuese en español sería más fácil gracias.

Diggity Digga says:

Appreciating the tutorials man.  Don’t have pshop, can you tell me how to do the inkscape version of the snapshots?  I get to the cropping and saving image to png, but it’s not showing up when importing to Pinnacle 17.

AuthorsBroadCast says:

Nice. Thanks. Corel might have appreciated it if you mentioned Paint Shop Pro. 😉 My fantasy is that they will incorporate PSP with Pinnacle in order to easily drop out backgrounds, resize images etc. Here’s hopin’

topheave says:

Do you have any tutorials for those of us that are just beginning to use pinnacle 16 I consider myself to be a novice with this software but I have watches a few of your tutorials and I like them very much. However, your techniques are far to advance for me and I want to get up to speed…so my question is do you have classes for beginners or videos /CD’s or something to that effect, and if so how can I get started?

dee gates says:
