PinnacleStudio is a form of editing software and is used by few poopers. The current version is Studio 26. It costs around $50-$130 in three versions, the regular version, Plus version and Ultimate version.

Beginning with Version 9, the Plus version was offered, featuring a second overlay video track also allowing for simple picture-in-picture and chroma-key effects, third-party plug-in support, pan-and-zoom effects, and more. Beginning with Version 11, an Ultimate version was released that included special upscale third-party plug-in apps (such as Prodad VitaScene).

Avid, the former parent company of Pinnacle Systems, later released Avid Studio, a more upscale prosumer video editor that had many of the same features as Pinnacle Studio did, along with a lot more. When Corel bought Pinnacle Systems from Avid in 2012, they took Avid's Studio, and retooled it to be the new version of all Pinnacle Studio versions since version 16.
