Video sharing site lauched - Pinnacle have launched a site where you can share home movies.
Anyone who wants to share their home movies or mobile phone footage now has no excuse not to make their clips worth watching. Thanks to Pinnacle’s new social networking site, anyone can quickly edit their footage to make it entertaining and then share the results online with family and friends - or the whole world.
The video share site, www.pinnacleshare.com features the Pinnacle Studio Online Editor, a specially adapted version of the award-winning Pinnacle Studio editing software. It is free, incredibly simple to use and delivers fantastic professional results. The results are as you’d expect from Pinnacle, a subsidiary of Avid whose editing technology has won several Oscars and is behind most Hollywood movies and primetime TV shows.
The easy to navigate site www.pinnacleshare.com is available in 8 language translations. Aspiring film makers can upload up to 30Mb of video content and use the editing software to quickly create a professional, smooth looking clip. The online software eliminates the need for any additional installation or downloads. Effects include adding titles and credits to your clip; filtering to give it that Andy Warhol coloured look; sound effects and music as well as a transition tool which allows users to fade out scenes, providing that professional edge. The site also includes a Tips and Tricks area for advice from industry and Pinnacle experts.
At a time when video sharing is all the rage, Pinnacle is providing an opportunity to professionally edit with Pinnacle Studio for free as well as share footage, making the website the first of its kind. The simplicity with which editing can be carried out is guaranteed to surprise even the greatest technophobe. In addition you decide who sees your videos; you can restrict it to friends and family, or open it up to the world at large.
Pinnacle hopes to show how simple video editing is: “Many people want to create videos but are put off by the perceived complexity” says Steve Arnott, Country Manager Pinnacle UK, “Our online tool and expert advice will make it easy for everyone and will hopefully open up digital video sharing to those who otherwise might not try it”.
