hey there i am currently using pinnacle studio version 7 and find it very useful as a basic edit suite. i mainly use my camcorder (panasonic mx-8) to produce my own films and i would like to achieve a more filmic look to my finished product. i know that alot of tv programmes (hollyoaks, heartbeat) are shot on video but something is done in the edit to take away the harshness of video. i think it may be something to do with droppping the frame rate. any help would be greatly appreiciated cheers!
