Download Pinnacle Studio 17 patch

Release of a patch for Pinnacle Studio 17 - Download link

After release of Pinnacle Studio 17, a eighth patch is available. Pinnacle recommends installing the update for all users.

--> Click here to download Pinnacle Studio 17.6 patch <--


It concerns Pinnacle Studio 17, Pinnacle Studio 17 plus as well as Pinnacle Studio 17 ultimate. The download for the patch is free for all users who already bought Pinnacle Studio 17.

Warning # 1 : This patch installs only on the 17.5 version of Studio. If your version is older, install the 17.5 patch before installing the 17.6. Otherwise, when installing 17.6, a warning message will appear and prompt you to download and install 17.5 previously.

Warning # 2 : There may be a delay when one double-click the exe before the patch starts. So, if one double-click again the .exe, several instances of the patch will be launched. Just be patient!

2 major bugs have been fixed by Pinnacle's developpers :

  • hangs during editing of larger projects
  • playback stutter, audio glitch at title text change, transition boundary

Bought the device to capture VHS to digital.
Had an older device which worked well, finally crashed.

The new version.....Garbage, no technical support.

Running now PS ultimate
Presume this is a development issue and there is no workaround?

There is an issue with the download, many users are impacted, but not all users. You get a 9 Mb file instead of a 77 Mb file. Under investigation by Pinnacle.
Thursday, July 17, 2014 6:39 AM
The same problem. I can get only the 9Mb version and my antivirus says it's a harmful one. Can anyone post the patch so that we can download it entirely????

I downloaded the proper 77.7mb file yesterday. Today, I got the 9.5mb file link. A few minutes later, the proper one. Now, it's back to 9.5mb.

@Marten, if you already have PS17.5, there is no need to update it again with that patch.
As for Win8, I'm using Win7 64bit. No problems installing it.

Hopefully, they will get this link fixed soon. I have to say though, that Corel has shown it is willing to make good on their initial mistake of releasing PS17 before it was really ready to be released. The Devs have worked hard in learning the code (original coders are gone) and fixing it.

Please try again the link, Pinnacle just sent us a new link that we updated on our website. Now it works for me.

Thursday, July 17, 2014 12:56 PM
Thank you for your help, that's worked :-)
Thursday, July 17, 2014 3:24 PM
Thanks! Mine has been succesfully updated too.

I hope they release a 17.7 patch quickly to fix the things they just broke. For example, you can no longer simply drop a transition of the default length on your timeline. You have to resize it each time. This is a huge efficiency hit for me. Also, he search for library items no longer works. After each letter you type in the search box the edit box loses focus. This is painful. This is two obvious bugs within 5 minutes of using the new patch.

After kicking the cat, chasing the dog, I finally uninstalled ALL versions of Pinnacle Studio, then run a cache cleaning program and rebooted the PC I then installed v17, rebooted the PC and proceeded to install each patch up to 6. I ten rebooted again opened v17.6 and not only can I burn a blu0ray disk at last can now access Red Giant plugins in Effects Editor for the first time. After spending Thousands of dollars on Liquid Edition to no avail. I have just about reach the end of my patience with Studio/Corel and will start looking at the competition.

Updated 17.5 to 17.6 (Ultimate version) and experiencing a whole bunch of obstacles. The major one is having preview render keep hanging. All works fine for some time and then rendering hangs and no preview is available. Can continue editing however in order to see the outcomes need to restart the application.

Already tried to resetting however the only result was the agony of setting the collections. Also removed KB2982791 as per the alert in the forum. No luck.

From HW pov, using 3 separate disks for OS, media and rendering. Same worked relatively well with Avid (and PS14, PS12).

Can you please clarify what you mean by "From HW pov, using 3 separate disks for OS, media and rendering." ???

Saturday, August 30, 2014 10:36 PM
Have 3 hard drives installed:
1. Windows 7 + Program files, 25% used
2. My media (video, photo, music), 35% used
3. Render files location + exported projects, 25% used

Win 7 32 bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz, 4 Core(s)

Made some more attempts including uninstall and re-install of PS17U however with no luck. Same as before, editing works for a short while and then preview is lost. Attempt to play the under work clip will jump to a specific point in the clip and hangs there.

Appreciate any help in bringing it back to operational mode.

Dear Ami,

I don't know what to say for your problem, I am also affected by another kind of problem, and we have one common point: several disks for rendering, medias, OS... Maybe a cause of the problem ? Not sure, but the more I read forums, and the more I see that people who encounter problems similar to this one have several disks (I also have RAID 0)

Sunday, September 14, 2014 11:39 AM
I too have assets on a couple of drives and do not have this problem. My machine specs:
(a little dated)
Win 7 Pro 64bit
AMD FX8350 4.3 Ghz
16gigs DDR3 1600 Corsair RAM
AMD HD7870 video 2gigs GDDR5 RAM
..and 2 hard drives.

Have you deleted the Render files? How much RAM is being used by your system when this happens? Anything running in the background? Have you tried re-seating your RAM chips?

It sure is frustrating.

I have been using this 3 disk configuration with Avid Studio and earlier PS17 and didn't encounter this situation.

When BGRnd "hangs" memory is at approx. 75% utilization. No other application is running, except anti-virus and hardware related processes.

I have deleted the Render files as well.

Have done some more work on this and it seems to be (ok I am guessing as I do not know the architecture of the product) loss of communication between the foreground Studio and the background BGRnd. When it hangs, I saved the movie and then re-opened it using the "Recent" option in the menu. Background rendering resumed, well until it hangs again.

Hardware problem not detected? Conflict with other software?
Monday, September 15, 2014 11:37 AM
Have you tried turning off your anti virus which scans the files as they are rendered?
Tuesday, September 16, 2014 12:06 PM
Yes, tried to disable anti-virus and to exclude the render location from real time scanning. No impact.

Hello. I'm editing with pinnacle studio 17 ultimate, and my question is, can
video recording of a wedding 3: 08: 21: 00 in the timeline to DVD?
And duration is only necessary one? Thank you for your kind reply.

The maximum duration for best quality is 60 minutes.
Nonetheless, you can decrease quality and put more than 60 minutes.
And finally, there is a trick in Pinnacle Studio, by selecting 8.5 Go and making a small calculation for a 4.37 Go size (I will take 4.35 for security).
- 4.35 x 1024 x 1000 x 8 = 35635200 Kbits
- Duration = minutes x 60 + chapter and menu duration
- Compression will be: C = Size / Duration

Using this compression rate, and it should work. But beware that if you fall under a certain quality, your DVD will be just horrible to watch... You can use a double layer, or make two DVD ?...

when opening the install manager I've made sure that the titles are installed but when I open pinnacle studio 17ultimate and click on the "all titles" button it's empty and I get a message: "default title wasn't found in the installed content. title editor can't be opened". uninstalling then installing again hasn't helped eithe

@vilaura, you need to rebuild the effects database. You can read how HERE, along with resetting the entire program.
Report back if it works.

Studio 18 trial version does not exist. You can buy a Studio 18 version and you get a refund after one month.
