Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate is easy to understand and work with. It is most look like with version 15 styles and that makes me happy to work with 21 right now. Only thing is, I can not see the red giant.

Hi Maliek! I absolutely love your tutorials! They have helped me out a lot. Thanks! I have a question. I’d love to say I have Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate and that it relates to that, but it’s about Studio 17 Plus…and well it’s more of a general question actually. I’ve been having an issue with a music video I created. I’ve exported it about 10 times now and after the export there’s a flash in the beginning that wasn’t there before. It plays fine before I export it…no flashes and runs smoothly. I’ve tried taking a few frames off the beginning, adding a few frames, adjusting the fades, splitting the beginning footage, and even adding in image correction, which has helped a few times when I’ve had flashes and issues with some of the footage. Nothing has worked. I can’t see whether or not I’m actually correcting the problem until after I wait 3 hours for it to export because it’s not on the video when I play it in the time line. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!

Hi Maliek, as always your presentation is SUPER! I will follow you week by week and step by step. Thanks so much.

Tom Hansen says:

Pinnacle Studio 21 is so slow to use in 4k Editing mode, it must render it all again Even with just a slight change in the timeline. Hopeless to use 🙁

Kathy Roberts says:

Always a fan of all your videos, but I am just somewhat disappointed that 21 has come out so quickly and I was just getting used to PSU20. They don’t seem that different and I am hoping any bugs in the new version are dealt with swiftly. How long will 21 last I wonder?

Paul van Rooijen says:

Hello Maliek. A question all the way from Holland. Will it still be possible to work with project bins in Pinnacle Studio 21 Ultimate? You did not say anything about that in your tutorial.

jason foran says:

Hi Maliek. I have pinnacle studios version 19 and 20 and I’m just wondering why the smartmovie keeps crashing on both versions. I have the software installed on a desktop computer as well as a laptop and I have done the updates on both versions
I use the smartmovie a lot do to my slideshows and presentations.
Have spoken to the software customer support but they weren’t much help

Or at least tell me what transition are use
Can you help

Duane Gayer says:

Please do a video on screen capture and editing
