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”.
