Pinnacle VideoSpin

leave a comment »

I found this in an issue of PC World magazine.

Before you go to the computer store to buy a video editor, wait. Pinnacle VideoSpin, a freebie, might be all you need. The application is a little confusing, so here’s an explanation.

Here are the three main components.

  1. The Album. This is where you select your photos and videos.
  2. The Player, where you can preview your selected video clip.
  3. The Timeline. You can drag your media here to start creating your movie.

There are many fun and creative editing tools to choose from. You can pick transitions to nicely segway into your next video. Title templates can go at the beginning or end of your video. There is also a nice library of sound effects.
The one thing Pinnacle VideoStudio doesn’t have, compared to for-pay video editing programs, is video effects. They’re things that you can apply at a certain point in your video to invert the colors or make it black-and-white, to name a few. Also, you can’t resize the app, and if you want to burn a disc, you’re out of luck. But if you don’t want to pay a ton of money on a video-editing program, VideoSpin might do the trick.
