Minimize Welcome on Declic Video FX website (click the arrow...)

I created this website because I have a passion for helping people get the most out of the video editing software that is widely available today for amateur video editors. I was quickly joined by a small team of volunteers who help me. We have several objectives in mind:

  • to promote our passion for video editing;
  • to share our knowledge with you;
  • help you, either directly or indirectly, to find the right information;
  • keep the site completely free and without the need to register to use it .

Software that we deal with is: Pinnacle Studio 18, Studio 17 ULTIMATE (but also versions Studio 1-16), AVID Studio, Hollywood FX, proDAD VitaScene 2, Heroglyph 4, Adorage, Mercalli 2, Mercalli 3, Mercalli 4, Defishr 1, proDRENALIN, ReSpeedr, Boris Graffiti FX and Blufftitler.

If this is your first time visiting the site and you are looking for a particular topic, use the  "Search" tool to quickly find what you need. The site is divided into “ information articles ” and “ tutorial articles ”. Information articles give you all the latest news on the website and in the world of digital video editing while tutorials will teach you about the steps to follow to accomplish a particular task (often illustrated with a video demo).

If you're familiar with this website, besides the search tool, the  "Archive" tool and filters are also at your disposal. The most recent articles & tutorials are available on this page.

A comments section is provided at the end of each of our articles/tutorials.
Here you can express yourself if you have:

  • a comment, clarification, or wish to provide additional information;
  • a question, disagreement, approval ...

Do not ask general questions or questions intended to solve a personal problem in this section. You will find the latest comments submitted by our visitors on these pages.

On this site you will find general information about nonlinear video editing software that we use, as well as tutorials, FAQs, hundreds of free Hollywood FX transitions, downloads, links page and a "Contact" page where you can contact us directly on subjects unrelated to our articles. In short, all the help you would come to expect to make your video editing fun. However, we do not have the means for direct assistance and troubleshooting for issues not directly or indirectly related to our publications. In this case, we recommend that you go directly on the forums listed at the bottom of our pages. You will receive a prompt response to your question, either from forum members or ourselves if we have the time available.

We sincerely hope to be helpful because our only motivation is your satisfaction.

Tutoriel thumbnell "Red Giant installs itself on your hard drive" You have installed Studio 18 and the installer has collected your Red Giant plugins which were already installed in Studio 17 to copy the files to the Studio 18 folder. But some of the file transfers took place without your knowledge and you perhaps are not fully aware of what was installed and the space occupied on your hard drive. If I tell you that some data is copied 10 times on your SSD, I think I'll start to interest you...

Announcing a batch program adaptationWindows 10 has arrived and some of you are eager to test it with Studio 18. Windows 18 is compatible with Windows 10, yes. But as always, some issues with existing programs are inevitable. Thus users of our HFX batch programs found that they could not use some of the batch programs. The level of UAC is controlled in our latest batch programs and the values returned by Windows 10 are different from the values returned by Windows 7/8, thus it became necessary to adapt our batch programs for use with Windows 10.

The new batch programs, Repare-HFX-11-12-14-15.bat and INSTALL.BAT contained in HFX-DVFX-STUDIO-XXX.Zip are compatible...
