A Simulation of a Montage Theme

To paraphrase an old advertisement, I would say: "It looks like a Pinnacle Montage Theme, it talks like a Pinnacle Montage Theme... but this is not a Pinnacle Montage Theme". While admiring the quality of some plugins that are available to us, I try to reproduce, in my own way, certain effects, using only what I have on my computer. With the release of Studio 12, new horizons have been opened.

If you're curious, if you are tempted, so ...

See the tutorial "A simulation of a Montage Theme"


PS: we have updated our tutorial "proDAD Heroglyph - Typewriter" with an alternative method using Title Deko in Pinnacle Studio. This is a third version of the original "Typewriter with Boris Graffiti".

PS Bis: "Flashbulb in your video" has also been modified thanks to Cuartetto remarks, from Pinnacle forum. He proposed an alternative method, which is rather simple but very nice ! Thanks to all people who are participating in this big adventure, by posting on the forums or putting some comments in our news article or tutorials. These tutorials belong to all of us, and it serves everybody who learn Pinnacle.

An image stretched in height which only the lower part is visible This happened to me recently after changing some options in Studio for testing purposes. When my tests were finished, I left the options in that configuration. But a few days later, when I wanted to work on some transitions, I had a big surprise!
So after thinking about this, I remembered having adjusted my settings in "Video and Audio Preferences". I also remembered that the problem had been briefly mentioned in posts on the Pinnacle forum. The coincidence became evident, reason why I decided to stick it in a FAQ.

Icon for news typewriter Heroglyph When word processors and computers did not exist...

For some, it is back in the Stone Age, but in fact it has only been roughly thirty-five years. In the same way that Le Papy showed you in his tutorial : Boris Graffiti, Typewriter Effect, I'll show you that it is possible to simulate the appearance of text as if done with a typewriter with Heroglyph. It is much easier than with Boris Graffiti, but huuuuuuuush, don't tell that to Le Papy, he might get jealous!

Substitution de la carte de la Floride à la carte de France

It was then asked whether it was possible to change the names of these two cities and put them in their proper location on the map... So today we expand the customization of this effect by changing the background map. So now, you can change the country, city... And if you have a map of the moon you can let your imagination run wild.
