Pinnacle Systems took the wraps off Pinnacle Studio 9 yesterday, beefing up an already strong product. Among the highlights of the new release (which is due to ship in February) is a new SmartMovie feature that automatically creates a movie by combining a music soundtrack with raw footage, similar to what muvee autoProducer offers. There's also a number of new effects and transitions, as well as tools for color correction and cleaning up artifacts from imported video. Users can also now edit 16x9 widescreen video with Studio 9. The best part is that Pinnacle is still offering Studio for just $99.
