You’re a great help to a lot of viewers, Maliek. I always enjoy watching your instructional videos. I am always looking for interesting shortcuts to make the final product easier to produce.

HomeAutomationX says:

Hi Maliek, is there a way to make a good intro with Pinnacle Studio Ultimate? I was looking at different titles then i seen you did a video using Boris Graffiti. Alternatively I looked at sites like Panzoid but nothing caught my eye.

idahomike100 says:

Thanks for the info,much appreciated,
Group doesn’t work for some instances,I need to combine,in pinn 15 I could combine clips with simple two clicks,now you say I have to render the clips then import back into my project,man what a pain and time consuming,plus when ever you render you loose some quality,best to work with original footage straight from the camera for best final output.

Michal Chruscinski says:

Sorry, I like Pinnacle Studio and all but I just find you annoying mate, sorry.
Too much beating around the bush.
On a positive note though, I’m off to Pinnacle website, time to upgrade to Studio Ultimate 20.
Sorry about the comments but I believe there’s nothing better than a constructive criticism.

motteekk makeup says:

Wow!!! thank you for the reply to me so fast!! I really appreciate it. Would at all be possible you would do a video on this matter? Since recently Instagram has started to allow more than 15 sec vidoes plus allowing you to do up to 10 videos meaning a total of 10 min clip. I think their definalty would be allot of interest in knowing exactly how to do this process.
Thank you.

PinnacleStudioPro says:

Check out these cool editing tools!

Birute00 says:

Good pointers and tips, Maliek! Have an awesome day

idahomike100 says:

There is no combine clips when I rt click,just group,but group doesn’t combine the clips

Flarpy J says:

I learned how to edit watching your vids. I would like to see cooler editing effects too,so if you can do cooler effects it would be great. Continue the good job!

Dan Duffin says:

How do you adjust the other track lines to also adjust (move) the same when you cut, trim, or adjust the length of a clip. Once you trim or cut, the other tracks don’t move, and i need them to move to correspond with the other adjustments, otherwise, i have to independently go to each track and move them. By the way, the videos are very helpful!

The Comedian says:

Hey Maliek, I just purchased a disc copy of Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate the other day, and I installed everything, but for some reason, whenever I try to play a video on the timeline or library, the preview screen area just remains grey, like the interface color, and I can only hear the sound.

Is there some setting I have to change to fix this?
Please let me know, thanks.

Taste Elbeet says:

Hi Maliek,How can I rejoin the splitted clips in order to apply one color correction on them for example?

Gary DeMaria says:

Nice video thank you.  But I was watching to see how you *expand* a clip.  If I have 3 clips connected and decide to expand the middle clip, it seems to effect the length of the 3rd clip.  Instead of pushing it over, it shrinks the 3rd clip.  Would be great to include this type of editing in a video as well.

idahomike100 says:

How can I combine clips on the timeline so I can add audio corrections to the whole video,instead a adjusting every clip separately

A Dusty fan says:

I love the tutorials, I often refer back to them to remind myself how to do things. At the moment I am having trouble with a stutter/pause between transitions. Any suggestions? Will it show when I burn the project?

Ton Oomen says:

verhelderende uitleg

N2MEDS says:

Question, When I am on Time line and move the scrubber below, I do not get a video in the window. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Pinnacle studio Ultimate is what I have.

MarkTheLostTraveler says:

I enjoy watching your instructional videos. They are so helpful. Thank you as always for your time putting these together.

M Maggiore says:

Very useful, but there is an important thing missing… how to weld 2 clips into a single clip?? i mean, suppose i have 40 clips and i want to apply effects to ALL of them in once. I need to weld them into a single clip, otherwise i need to apply the effects manually one by one. Is there a way to weld them??

idahomike100 says:

Thank you

David Hunter says:

Hiya Mailek! Haven’t contacted you in a while, I’ve been off video stuff so haven’t done anything, just probably needed a break!
Anyway I’m getting back into it! I’ve just bought the Mavic Pro and intend getting some real great Ariel footage!
I’m still using Pinnacle 19 Ultimate and would like to pick on your expertise as how to once edited is it possible to burn/ or export to a memory stick and get away from DVDs blue Rays etc???
Plus as it’s been a long time since using Pinnacle I need to relearn how to use this great movie making software so I’m feeling like I’m back to where I first started! Hope you can help me ! Cheers Buddy! Please keep up the good work! Dave in the U.K.

motteekk makeup says:

Hello, Thank you so much for your help. I need your guidance on a problem I am having with uploading videos to Instagram.
The videos can be a maximum of 10 min, however to upload they need to be in segments of 59sec Max!! when I am in the application and I am spliting the videos to meet that time frame how can I save each clip separetly and upload them to my computer ? because now even when I split the videos when i go and upload they all merge into one full video?
Thank you so much!!

Jolanda Rombaut says:

If I have a movie with multiple tracks and I want to trim, add or delete a clip, how do I get all tracks synchronised? Do you have that in a tutorial or can you answer? Thanks in advance.

Top10 Bluebuzz says:
