AVID Studio pour iPad (Apple)

The Pinnacle Studio for iPad 4.0 version was released ( iTunes link ). See the end of the news for a complete list of new features and improvements. But that's not all. Indeed, Corel/Pinnacle has now decided to license the development and support of this application, market leader, to Luma Touch team .

But who is Luma Touch, will you tell me? Luma Touch was founded a few months ago by Terri Morgan and Chris Demiris, two of the leading developpers at Avid and later Corel/ Pinnacle of the Pinnacle Studio for iPad app. Terri has spent her entire career in the world of video editing softwares (co-designer and product manager for Avid Studio). Chris is one of the fathers of our beloved Hollywood FX and has worked on the development of multiple versions of Pinnacle Studio and Avid Studio.
The Luma Touch's team welcomes you in his forum . You will found free support with Tips and Tricks, FAQ, Bugs reports, ... sections.

Interesting that Corel/Pinnacle has given over basically production of the iPad app to them. I can only imagine what sales of a Pinnacle Studio would be for Apple's desktop/laptop products would be. There is nothing at all available really. It's either iMovie or FCP. Maybe this will lead to a Pinnacle Studio for Apple.
My real concerns though are if there will be future development on Pinnacle Studio in the Windows world.

Hi Tony,

And how about a version for Android devices ? Great market to explore, don't you think ?

I would easily bet a nickle or two on a PS 17.

Yes! With all the Andriod tablets out there and PS16 already available on the PC, you would think that there would be one in the making.
But then, does anyone know the future of Pinnacle Studio?

Hello TonyP,

I can imagine that it will take into account 4K and 2.7K ?...
Who knows...

Shall Pinnacle Studio 17/Avid Studio 3 be able to import and play alpha effects? Also play as well GIF pictures. Even the WMM 2.3 is able to play GIF as well. And what about NewBlue video essentials 6, audio essentials 1-4? Red Giant Knoll Lights factory 2 and higher and Particular 2 and higher?
