Bias soundsoap is such a useful tool to have for audio correction. I'm really dissapointed that it's not going to be supported in the new AVID Studio. I also wonder if AMD multicore Processors will be supported the same as the Intel chips. In Media Composer it's Intel/quadro support only. I don't want to switch processors and graphics cards just to run AVID Studio. AMD/Firepro gives me more power for less money. That is if the new AVID Studio will recognize it and use it as effectively as Intel. At the $169 dollar price point this software is being marketed to budget minded semi pros who need as much as they can get for the money.
Happy Holidays Declic. I hope the review gets finished soon. I'm considering just staying with Studio 14 UC. Your review will play a big part in my decision to buy or not to buy. I'm already feeling robbed for buying that copy of Magix Pro X that I never use. I don't think I can bear buying another video editing program that's just going to sit around and be useless.

I've also got the Bella DV Keyboard that works like a dream with Studio Versions 14 & 12. It won't work with Magix Video Pro X
I hoping and praying that the keyboard will be compatible with AVID Studio.
Making cuts is so much faster. I can trim anything before or after a given point with one touch and then the wheel. The wheel. How can one survive without the wheel.
Declic if you've got the Bella keyboard please tell us if it's going to work with AVID Studio.

Hello

Does Avid Studio offer a 64bits version? I am seriously considering CyberLink PowerDirector Ultra64 v9 just because of this but I am so familiar with Pinnacle Studio that i rather get Avid Studio if the GUI and the way it works is in the same line as the Pinnacle products.

Thanks

Avid Studio Upgrade (boxed version) is now available for pre-order from Amazon (UK) for £65.99. This compares to £79.95 from Avid (a saving of £13.96). Release of the boxed version is expected 21st April.

Hopefully, when the download version becomes available on the 8th March, a downloadable trial version will also appear.

Disappointing though that it's not a 64 bit application (see Thorz's comment above).

Got it downloaded and went in for the Sonic Fire Pro Plug in and the Red Giant Plug in as well. The interface looks a lot like Magix Video Pro X but, functions quite a bit different.
Marketing this software to Studio users I feel they should have keep it a little more similar so there wouldn't be so much relearning. The Liquid guys seem to think its a lot like AVID Liquid. It'll take some time to get used to it. It's definetly more powerful that Studio. You can tell that right away with the practice project they give you to start out with. I Won't be uninstalling Studio 14 anytime soon. I'll be going over lots of tutorials and taking my time getting used to it. Bummer to anyone that has the Bella DV Keyboard that works so well with Studio. The wheel and the trim keys don't work in AVID Studio. Sigh..........

Purchased and downloaded Avid Studio, looks nice, would be even better if I could see my video on the previewer. Attempted to contact Avid, says my support ticket number is not valid, can't get pass that on phone support, now I have to wait until they get around to answering my email. What happened to the days of getting immediate support? GONE! Thinking I should have just went with Studio 15 and not tried to change. Anyone else having this issue?

Can any Avid Studio user let me know if projects can be added to the timeline, in the same way as audio and video clips? This would make it great for building large projects from several smaller ones.

I've tried the Pinnacle chat line but got the standard answer: "Avid Studio can load Pinnacle Studio projects", which is not the same.

It's a pity the manual, or better still the trial version isn't available yet.

Thanks...

Yes projects can be added to the timeline.It's in the manual.You can also transfer previous versions video files but you lose the original time and date info so you have to divide up the files into timed scenes or manually do it.There is a content detection but it is overly sensitive,you wind up with very short clips.There is a learning curve.And I am waiting for a content transfer for the declic HFZ transitions.Lost prodad but I guess there is a upgrade for that.However it comes with a lot of content.It may be a while before I can get done playing around and make something.I haven't had time to explore multilpe video tracks yet.Haven't been this excited since my first Studio 10 experience.

Thanks Graham. Well, I couldn't resist any longer so have taken the plunge and upgraded to Avid Studio. I'll report back my findings after a few days...


Just a few words though about value for money. Before I chose Avid Studio I tried the trial version of Studio 15. It is, as far as I could see, absolutely identical to S14, although I didn't try it long enough to see if it was more stable. However, for anyone using S14 I think the upgrade to S15 should be free, or at least very low cost, as it is really just a bug fix. It is rather like having to pay Microsoft for their service packs! So, in my opinion the S15 upgrade is poor value for money.


But not all is bad. Having seen what you get when upgrading to Avid Studio I think it is amazingly good value for money. Also as a bonus, items like Scorefitter become available to S14 too. Not only is Avid Studio a more powerful tool, which optimises for multi-core processors and 64 bit working (although not in itself native 64 bit) but it comes with a huge amount of extras, plug-ins and tutorials. On a 10Mbit internet connection, the full amount took about 3 hours to download - that's a lot of software! Very good value indeed!

Try going into system configuration and start turning off services.If you have windows 7 try microsoft for a repair tool "Mats_Run.performance.exe.".This is essentially a tool for someone who has little experience messing with this stuff.I highly recommend using this.You make a million copies of an OS and I guess you get ghost in the machine.

I have bought and installed Studio (after having purchasing PS15 upgrade, sic!) and have also used Smartsound Plug-in (previousely bought for PS15 - it works for Avid Studio effectiveley!); first impression is - forget about PS15, I suggest to everyone to switch to Avid Studio - they have made a marketing 'trick' giving us 'update 14 as 15 - normally should be free-of-charge'. So - DO NOT BUY PINNACLE STUDIO 15, AS - I prognose - it is latest version of the program, Avid will push all users to their native program for home making videos.
I am also using an Adobe CS4 (edu) set I have bought from second hand, and Cyberlink Power Direcotr Ultra 9 (I bought it for my x64 PC) and am very satisfied tih combination of those three programs (I got rid of PS15 as useless having AVS installed!)
That's it. Looking for quick, nice way for your home-video NLE creating soft - forget Pinnacle, switch to Avid Studio or Cyberlink Power Director! Do not let make money for Avid for stupid upgrades! PS15 in comparision of the AS is 'below the line' - that is my opinion, true, but, just wanted to let you know if are going to spend some $$$ for simple NLE program for your semipro- or amateur- video productions.
Thanks Decllic for your "many years" existance!

Avid Studio - Here are my findings now that I've been using Avid Studio for 14 days (please also see my comment above regarding S15). I must say that I think Avid Studio is the best video editor I've ever used. It is far better than S14/S15, although it takes a while to get used to. I tried a trial version of Power Director 9 too, but found it full of bugs (work in progress as someone said, describes it well).

Some things in AS are similar to S14/S15 while others are quite different. Overall though, there is very little that you can't do in AS, it being more powerful and flexible than S15. It has been rock solid stable too, which for version 1.0.0.2804 I find commendable. Now I am accustomed to using AS I find it fairly easy and very logical.

The advantages are too numerous to list here, but in my opinion it is definitely far, far better that S15. If you don't own an earlier version of Pinnacle then S15 would suffice for a mid field editor, but if you qualify for an upgrade, the go for AS.

I still can't get my decliic HFX transitions to show up in AS,but after installing the repare app. all the bonus effects that came with AS showed up in studio 14.I am very pleased with AS, it has not crashed once.The worst was when I got click happy and had to wait for about a 60 sec. for the timeline to respond.

I've been playing with AVID Studio now since in came out on March 8th. I've dealt with a huge number of issues revolving around the fact that I put it into an upgraded version of Windows 7. All types of features that should have been present didn't show up. After working through the issues and installing on a system with a fresh upload of Windows 7 it works beautifully. Being a Studio user since version 10 I'm kind of set in my ways of thinking about editing video. Avid Studio takes a little time to get used to but it is far more powerful than its Pinnacle counterpart. The ease at which it renders effects is amazing compared to Studio14. It takes advantage of the extra RAM and processor cores when using the 64bit version of windows that the other versions of Studio weren't able to. The same transitions become viewable about 5 times as fast. I've already uploaded my first Avid Studio project online using the Youtube uploader. It uploads to Youtube as it renders cutting down on the time it takes to output a project by about 75%. It seems like every Pinnacle Studio option is unlocked. I've got to give this one the thumbs up. No problems with AVCHD footage at the fastest bitrate in 1080x1920 from pro model camcorders. I admit a few months ago I went for one of the 6 core AMD processors but, my backup quad core system with 8 gig of DDR2 800 is now able to handle the footage where it couldnt before. Check out my first Avid Studio project at this link.

It worked the first try.I have my transitions now and the way they are displayed in AS makes them much easier to see and chose from.The Trans plug for 64 is what I used.When I used the Repare batch file on the 26th,it transferred all my content from AS to Studio 14,very nice though.But the trans file did it for me today.The only thing I paid for,and want, that I don't have is "Vita Scene".Prodad wants $79.00 for the up grade .Is this correct?

Avid Studio - After over 14 days of trouble free use, I hit a Problem which may not have been with AS itself. AS would not start - it partly loaded then the error message 'NGStudio has stopped working' came up, then it unloaded.

I tried to run a repair using the installation files, but without success. In the end I recovered by installing a previous disc image of my C: drive (I always back up every 2 - 3 days) and of course all is working well now. As I said, the problem could have been somewhere else, such as the corruption of a system file (I'm using Win 7 64bit SP1) but here are the details of the error, which I hope doesn't occur again:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - for users of Avid Studio 1.0

On two occasions now I have had this problem:

XML Parsing Error:

Error 13 [Bad termination tag]
Line line number
...useKeyframe="">...useKeyframe="">^----

Then the following happens:

- A message appears 'Initialising Effect System. Please wait.'
- The 'Welcome to Avid Studio' dialog appears (as if you were running it for the first time).
- The sample project 'The-Sky-is-the-Limit.Movie.AXP' is loaded.

After this you will find that:

- Your recently used list is missing
- Your Control Panel settings have all been reset to their default values (Avid Studio Control Panel - not Windows Control Panel).

I have traced this problem to corruption in the settings file, which is located here:

'C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\Avid\Studio\1.0\Settings\Settings.xml'

where 'User Name' is the user's login name. To see this file you will need to go to the folders options in Windows explorer and set 'Folder Options / View' to 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'

What seems to be happening, is that the settings.xml file is being corrupted, so Avid Studio replaces it with the default version, which of course does not have your settings in it. I recovered from this problem by using a backed up version of the settings.xml file.

MY ADVICE – make a backup of your settings.xml file before it gets corrupted. Then, if you ever hit this problem you will at least retain all of your important settings, even though your recently used list will be out of date.

I have purchased the downloadable version Avid Studio however facing a problem downloading the 2 main files. Tried using both Akamai download manager and direct download via IE. Both methods failed multiple times.
Download manager is unable to resume an interrupted download.
All other files, including the 2.5GB training installer were downloaded in first attempt. I am using wired connection to my router, Windows 7 with IE 9.
Query submitted to Avid sales was answered by suggesting to return the download and to purchase the box version.
Any work around, except switching to Power Director?

Hello All,
Very informative reading in this forum so I first wanna say thank you. I was a PS14hd user and did several projects in it and was very impressed by what that little progam could do so when the Avid Studio came out I just bit the bullet and purchased it. So far pretty good. When I purchased the original PS14hd it came with a Pinnacle 710-USB capture device. It would come up in the import mode but as soon as I started capturing the video would freeze frame but the clip would continue recording so the final captured clip would be all the audio but just the beggining video with the remainder of it as a freeze frame. Very frustrated because the whole reason for the purchase was to digitze some older family videos I had done in the 90's. I owned the third largest Production company in the Seattle market for about a decade and was using a Full blown Matrox Digisuite with Speed Razor as the NLE software. Hey... It was COOL and very expensive back then and I could get $200/phr for Post work! ANYWAYS, this little $150 package does pretty much everything that edit bay did and then some! Other than the capture means SVHS campaired to uncompressed D1 but other than that Dang Impressive. But thinking that the upgrade would fix the problem... It did not.
SO, My Win 7 running i7core (8 of them) prcessors with the 8 gigs of memory and etc was not the fix then I ran the software on a xp smaller slower laptop... I worked fine and I could capture all day long... Go Figure...
I now use an old laptop to capture the video and then transfer the video clips (media) to the new one and do all my editing and etc.
SO heads up...
Just my 02 worth.
BTW, purchased the AVID software online so when I placed a call for customer service no AVID support code to dail in when they ask... Great1

hey guy, I found a solution to the ngstudio.exe stops working problem. (At least for me here on win7 x64)

Enable the Administartor account in windows, see here

Once you have that enabled, simply switch to the Administrator account and start up the app.

I have S14 and some unfinished projects, but think I have an upcoming one where Studio's enhanced features willl be of great benefit. I see that old content will transfer, but does anyone know if the S14 and Studio will co-exist on same PC without conflicts or slowing the PC down? And, can Studio import S14 projects to be edited from that version going forward? Thanks!

Yes, sure, Studio 14 and AVID Studio will co-exist, I have both on my computer. I did not remark any slowdown or conflict.
Regarding the importation of project, even if it's possible, I would rather advice to avoid this; render your project first, and then you can import it into AVID Studio.

For reasons unimportant here I have a new PC laptop that I must find a replacement for iMovie Pro. I tried out PD9 and the speed was the only thing remotely impressive. I have just downloaded the trial version of AS and very soon will be purchasing it. *granted this issue is fixed
My problem is I have no video in AS. Even on the pre-installed movie. Audio is fine.
PC specs:
Windows 7 x64
i5 2.53GHz
ATI mobility radeon HD 6370 512 dedicated (up to 3GB?)
I see from the top of this page that ATI X1000 series or better graphics card is required, is what I have better?

I have played around with the preview settings - no difference
I updated, though not needed, the graphics card - no difference
I updated DirectX11(Aug 2009) - no difference

Can someone please help?

DEAR ALL OF YOU, I HAVE NOTICED ACCIDETLY THAT THE TROUBLE “NGStudio (.exe) has stopped working” after the installation of the wonderful AVID STUDIO (in other words the program does not run and the windows (windows 7 64 and 32 bit) stops running it) disappears when the AVID STUDIO is installed on a slave HARD DISK (:D, F: e.t.c.) and not on the master of administrator HARD DISK (usually C:)
I DID NOT UPDATED THE AVID STUDIO WITH THE RELEVANT PATCH FILE BECAUSE IT DID NOT SOLVE THE AABOVE MENTIONED PROGRAM

BY THE WAY CAN SOME ONE OF YOU TELL ME WHY THE ProDAD FILTER (V. 1 AND V. 2) PURCHASED (BY ME) FROM THE PRODAD.COM REQUIRE ACTIVATION BY THE PINNACLE STUDIOS 12, 12.1, 14 AND 15 (AVID)?
I ASKED BOTH OF THEM TWICE BUT IN VAIN – SHALL I PAY FOR THEM FOR A SECOND TIME?

Hello Constantinos,

My AVID Studio installation is on C:\ drive, and I do not experiencethe problem you mention (NGStudio.exe stops working)... So, it's probably linked to something else. It can have various cause.

For example, for me, I have AVID Studio very long to react and quite impossible to use when I have Babylon program running (it's a translation program). Therefore, I had to disable it when running AVID Studio.

Regarding proDAD activation, please get in touch with us through email, and we will try to help you.

Be sure that you are not installing Avid Studio on an upgraded version of Windows. I had multiple problems and crashes until wiping the hard drive clean and installing a fresh version of Windows 7

Just downloaded Avid Studio, and it seems very efficient for my hobby use, but the preview of videos disappear one second after I click stop. When I try to use effects or corrections to videos, they don't appear while adjusting, only when I play the video segment after adjusting.

Why?

Hi Magnu,

It sounds like your PC is not fast enough for this task. What is the specification of the PC you're using, and are you editing standard or high definition video files?

Great review. Avid Studio allows users to make high quality films and videos. The interface is easy on the eyes and the tools are indespencible. I love the add-ons (especially Magic Bullet Looks).

Hi,
First time posting on this site - There's a lot of great information, thank you!
I've been using Pinnacle Studio 10.5 (yes, I know it's old), but it's been working for me for the projects / presentations I've done. Now comes the two big questions.... other than killing all that I've done, can I run this older version on the same system as Avid Studio? And, what format of rendering would be advisable for the sake of moving what's been done to the new version while allowing me to edit / add more clips or snippets in the newer Studio?
By the way, does everyone have a problem with finding a support with the newer Avid? Thanks for all your inputs!

Deau Susan,

You did not receive any reply yet, because your question is not directly related to our topic, nevertheless I have some free time tonight, I will try to answer you rapidly (please address future question like this one into the forum):
- it's possible to run this older version with AVID Studio (that's what I do !)
- render your previous movie in the same codec than the imported codec (if you import MPEG, export MPEG, if you import AVI DV Encoder, export in the same format, ...)
- With the newer AVID, try the chat helpline which is useful.

Thank you so much.I tried the fix and yes I lost a lot of stuff,but it has given me a chance to edit out a lot of stuff.I am now in the process of putting S14 back on my machine so I can transfer my content which goes back to S10.Word of advice,IF your are upgrading leave your last version ,if stable, of Studio in case something goes wrong.In my case I had left Studio open while the machine went to sleep and over a few days that file corrupted Studio so bad it wouldn't open.So you never can tell what might be fatal.

Hello to Constantinos.I love your comments.People keep asking me why I don't get FCP,and I say why? Avid makes FCP look pro-summer and I don't have to pay for an overpriced computer.I am hoping to start an event business and until I am ready for full length feature films I will stick with Avid,especially if they go 64 bit...hint,hint.Do you post your videos anywhere? I would like to see your corner of the world.

I didn't think to check my security app. When it did it's once a month full scan, it thought that S14 and AS were viruises and disabled them.It should be just a restore but I'm posting this as a reminder to all those who need to re-install to check all the other computer settings that might effect your program.

so far this has been the most informative site i have seen!thanks!
so question: i am using Avid Studio on my laptop, i have more than the minimum requirement for specs.winds 7, 64bit, 8ram,i5 ect yet i am still having an issue that i can not sort out!
after importing AVCHD footage into avid i do not have audio on my clips. clips that are only a few seconds i have but anything longer than that there no sound!
any one have a clue what im doing wrong??
i have downloaded a convertion programme yet with that one i convert my AVCHD footage to a lower format i cant convert it back up after having edited the project, to burn blue ray?
totally confused

Try transfering the file to a hard drive location first.Then open Import and use the "My Computer" option.Copy,don't use the link option,to a new location.If you transfer from the camera with other than fire wire the USB port can slow things down,ditto with the memory card.However that seems to depend on the cards quality.I have a GoPro with two different memory cards.One brand works wonderfully.It can actually be faster to use the card as the memory location,the other brand of card, I have to use the work around even though both are class 10, which btw is the lowest class to use.I am assuming you aren't using a dedicated computr to edit with.

thanks graham! unfortunately it didnt work :(
i did what you suggested but still no change.
from all the research i have done im starting to believe it has to do with the footage not being uncompressed when i import, but i cant find any programme that will do that i assumed it would be done in avid like it is in FCP. do you know of a programme i can maybe download to uncompress the footage so i can then import into avid?

What kind of file is it?The only thing AS can't handle are files above HD.like RED,3D,or other Cine grade codec's.There is Soreson Squeeze(forgive the spelling please)I can download straight from my GoPro memory card to AS.The only reason I use the GOPro Cineform is for time laspe.You do have to turn off the 3D editor or AS can't read it.In fact AS doesn't like the Quick time file GoPro converts it,AVI or MOV, to so I reconvert it in it's editor to a Quick Time MPEG-4 file which AS can read.One of AS features is that you can work with the native file without having to re convert it as you do with fcp.
