 Pinnacle Studio Effects

The plug-in video effects installed with Studio are divided into six categories, each symbolized by an icon:

Cleaning effects help correct defects in the source video, such as noise and camera shake.

Time effects, like Speed, change the tempo of playback without otherwise affecting the appearance of the video.

Style effects like Emboss and Old film let you apply distinctive visual styles for added impact.

Overlay effects support the overlay features of Studio, such as Picture-in-picture and Chroma key.

Fun effects like Water drop and Lens flare provide extra scope for creativity and fun in your movies.

Color effects let you modify the coloration of a clip, whether subtly or dramatically.

Plug-in effects are organized into packs of one or more effects

each. In this manual, we cover the nine effects in the Studio HD

RTFX pack which is included with all versions of Studio. Further on, we briefly describe each of the more than 20 additional effects in the Ultimate RTFX pack , which is included with Studio Ultimate.

Full documentation of the parameters for the Ultimate effects is included in their context-sensitive on-line help, which can be viewed by clicking the help buttonat the top left of the parameters panel for each effect, or by pressing the F1 key when the panel is open.

Building your effects library

Studio’s plug-in architecture means that you can continue to add new effects to your video effects library as they become available.

Expansion packs of effects from Pinnacle and other vendors will integrate seamlessly with the program.

Some expansion effects are shipped with Studio as locked, premium content. These include Pinnacle’s RTFX Volume 1 and 2 packs. Such effects can be previewed in Studio as usual, but are “watermarked” with a special graphic during playback.
