Pinnacle Studio is a user-friendly video editing program designed to create amateur and professional media productions. A number of special effects are built into the program, including more than 100 scene transitions, frame-by-frame editing, title creation, audio soundtracks and video-correction tools. A sample of Hollywood-quality, 3-D effects is included, as well, with the option to purchase more. One special effects package you can buy called "Fun Effects" has a "Magnify" plug-in that turns video into an elevated oval. This fish-eye effect can be downloaded and added to your video toolbox.
