Thumbnail Greetings 2012

The year 2011 was eventful for all lovers of video editing. We had to gradually learn to forget the single Pinnacle name and to now associate it with the AVID name. We heard many rumors flying around, with more or less verified but sometimes contradictory information. After some information leaks, intentional or not, two new versions of our preferred non-linear editing software were finally out of the bag. Studio 15, latest in the line of the Studios was put on the market, and then the newest generation, Avid Studio, made it's appearance.

We have always tried to keep you informed as things occurred but we only publish information we have verified:

A lucky few of you have even managed to win a free license for some software:

Or to win prizes:

Or to obtain discount as much as -70% discount :

Numerous updates and innovations were made in proDAD:

A pinned tutorial :

And all our articles updated on a regular basis:

And finally, 2011 Christmas Gifts which has been written with lot of care, to give you full satisfaction with your non linear video editing software.

Few statistics for those who are interested (to be compared with 2008 statistics, see Some statistics):

  • you spent ~4 minutes on our website, and you are 65% new visitors
  • 33% speaks french, 33% speaks english, followed by netherlands, portugal, italian, spanish, russia, etc...
  • 28% are living in France, 15% in USA, followed by India, Italia, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Brazil, etc...
  • 36% are using Internet Explorer while 35% use FireFox and 22% Google Chrome - by the way, those who are still using Internet Explorer should give a try with FireFox or Google Chrome, because IE is very slow to display our website (we are still working on it, to understand why and how we could correct this !!). Then, some of you are connecting using Safari, Opera, Android, etc...
  • 2% visit our website with a mobile (sorry, we do not have any intention to developp anything specific at the moment), 1/4 on iPad, 1/4 on iPhone, and then iPod Touch, SonyEricsson & Samsung Gallaxy S2, ...
  • 95% of our visitors are using Windows (58% Windows 7, 33% XP, 8% Vista), 3% MAC, and then iPad, iPhone, Android, etc....
  • 15% are using a screen resolution of 1024x768, 13% in 1920x1080, 12% in 1280x1024, 10% in 1366x768, 8% in 1680x1050, etc...

So to conclude this review, we will finish the year by wishing you all the best in a display of light, and hoping that the year 2012 will be as fruitful as 2011 was in the video world.

Hello Graham,

Thanks a lot for taking time to post your wishes, very much appreciated. I love your wishes list !!

1- 64 bits AVID Studio, I hope so !!
2- Can you please clarify "scopes" ? Tutorials ? Plugins ?
3- Show us some cool video with your GoPro !! Which kind of sports do you do with it ?
4- :-)

I am currently making some new serie of tutorial, for people who are starting with AVID Studio, as well as people who use it daily, but who might have forgotten few tricks and menu not used very often...
We will see if it has success.

I meant Vector-scopes.They make color balancing so much more consistent than depending on your eyes at 2:30 am.They are available in Vegas pro and up.They almost have to be done within the platform, I don't think they work as plug in's as I've looked for them and can not find them.It could be one of the reasons to shell out more money for a pro(like Avid Pro 6) app. which I don't want to do for sometime.As much as I want to go pro, unless I was to get drunk in a bar in Anchorage with Spielberg I don't think I want a $2300.00USD NLE(oh but what a wonderful dream).I actually was an LD for a big Ski resort gala (1998) that he and a mess of other celebs. attended.That's another fish that got away story.
