Pinnacle Studio for Mac - Easy to Use Video Editor for Mac

Pinnacle Studio is the easy to use video editing software to capture memories with over 1,800 effects, useful editing tools, music, titles and other content. You'll also enjoy the benefits to share movies on YouTube, web, DVD, and more. However, Pinnacle is Windows only video editing platform. As far as we know, there is NOT Pinnacle for Mac in the schedule, or at least you can't find Pinnacle Mac on its homepage. I hope that this could answer all of these questions:

  • Does Pinnacle Studio make a version for the Mac?
  • How to install Pinnacle Studio 14 on a Mac?
  • Is there a program like Pinnacle Studio for Mac?

Again, all answers are NOT. My suggestion is to find a Pinnacle Studio for Mac alternative. One helpful option is Wondershare Video Editor for Mac (Mountain Lion, Lion supported). It's a good program like Pinnacle Studio for Mac to enhance and edit your video with an array of visual effects (not as much as Pinnacle but enough to use), transition, titles, and all regular video editing tools. Video Editor lets you export video to all popular video formats, share on YouTube and burn video to DVD for watching on TV.

You should convert the video to other format which is supported by your player. Our Video Converter can help you easily achieve that.

Liza: My friend edited a video using Pinnacle software and I downloaded the video from a external hard drive to my MAC but when I try to open it and watch it a box comes up saying "a required codec is not available" I have the current Mountain Lion software. Is there anything I can do to watch the video?

Hi, Wanda, thanks for your interests in Video Editor. 1. We do have Video Editor for Windows and it's possible to transfer it to Mac and vice versa. 2. It supports upload video/picture creation directly to Facebook. 3. You can mix video & picture in a video project. Here is a detailed guide for this. For more information about Video Editor for Window, click here!

Hi Liza: 1) Is there Video Editor for the PC? If so, is it possible for example to start working on a video creation using Video Editor in the PC & then transfer it to Mac and vice-versa? 2) Would I be able to send the video/picture projects directly to Facebook? 3) Can I be able to mix video & pictures in a video project? Thanks, Wanda

Hi, thovey, currently our video editor doesn't have this function. But you can try below two solutions, 1. For picture sorting and displaying, you can use our Web gallery. 2. For videos, you can use our DVD creator to organize your video, audio and photos in your preferred way, and burn to DVD disc, ISO image file, or dvd video with ease.

Please Please help me. I just purchased a MAC on April 4 and am so frustrated at this point. I have tried loading Pinnacle onto the Mac using Parallels/bootcamp. I have Windows 7. I also have 5 external drives. I partioned the MAC. When I was sucessful in loading Pinnacle, all I would get is the NGStudio crashing. I have installed and uninstalled many many times. Currently I cannot even get Pinnacle reinstalled. It thinks I have it open??. I am at the point of trying to take the MAC back even though others have told me Pinnacle will work. I love Pinnacle except when the NG studio crashes. Can you give me some information on how you installed and set up Pinnacle. I would love to have both.....working.

I've been using Pinnacle Studio for years. I bought it when version 7 was out. I bought a MAC and with bootcamp, I was able to partition my drive for Window's 7. All I have on my Window's partition is Pinnacle Studio. Everything is saved to a External Hard Drive so I don't use up too much of my Hard Drive memory on the partition. It works great. I can't imagine giving up my studio because I wanted a MAC.

Hi, Peter, for color/exposure correction, this Pinnacle for Mac alternative enables you to adjust brightness, contrast, rotate 90 degree, etc. But it doesn't have the montages for videos and photos. I've forwarded your concern to our develop team. If get any idea to achieve this, I will also post here in the future. Best regards,
Peter Stevenson
I am currently a PC user but now considering a move to Mac.I use Pinnacle Studio Plus and like it for the in-built color/exposure etc corrections and the montages for videos and photos. Can you tell me how any of the programs for the Mac compare with Pinnacle please? Maybe I should continue with Pinnacle on the PC and just put up with the crashes? Peter
