Corel VideoStudio Pro

I really can't think of a video editing scenario that would NOT be suited for. It's quite robust and intuitive. It's quite appropriate for all levels of video editing that I have any need for - and you can really make it just about as complex or simple as you'd like.

Pinnacle Studio

Pinnacle Studio is best for youtubers, teachers, and startups who can't afford the subscription-based software like Adobe Premiere Pro. Pinnacle Studio comes with all many advanced features. However, some precise controls are missing in the software so it is not for those who want every aspect of the video perfect.

Cons

Corel VideoStudio Pro

  • I would like a library of additional resources such as transitions
  • I would like to see available work and templates that can be downloaded to speed up processing
  • More video demonstrations/teaching would be nice

Pinnacle Studio

  • Pinnacle does have a learning curve.
  • The program occasionally becomes choppy and hangs up.
  • We can't change the cursor size in the screen recording. Other alternatives like Camtasia studio provides this feature.

It keeps simplicity and power in one program at a very fair retail price. Features are clearly marked and I feel spending about an hour with the program will make it a valuable asset to most organizations. Great for creating videos based on templates and a need for quantity. I can't imagine anything easier or better.

Updates are rare and it could be improved with a forum that addresses issues.

Alternatives Considered

Corel VideoStudio Pro

I haven't reviewed any other products, as I've been using [Corel] VideoStudio for 10 years now. I really don't have a need to switch.

Pinnacle Studio

Pinnacle Studio provides pro level tools, and it is very close to Adobe Premiere Pro in terms of features. Also, it provides a perpetual license for a lifetime version. Overall, it is stable and polished software then the other alternatives present in the market.

Mario Stone | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pinnacle Studio

  • It saves a lot of costs as it has a perpetual license option.
  • Editing and exporting are fast as compared to some other software.
  • We can make and sell quality video content which is of course profitable.
