"I am new to Pinnacle Studio 17(new to video actually), and iPhones as well, and was wondering if there is a detailed procedure on editing iPhone 6 video in Pinnacle. Do I just attach the phone to the computer like any movie camera?"
Hey, actually, the native record format that the iPhone uses isn’t a codec that plays well together with Pinnacle Studio supporte. Codecs are a complicated subject, and FCP tries to be helpful by automatically changing the sequence settings to match the clip. Not only for the H.264 codec videos from iPhone, but also for others like XAVC or H.265.
Pinnacle Studio 17 supports video formats: MVC, AVCHD™, MPEG-1/-2/-4, DivX®, DV, HDV, AVI, Flash, 3GP (MPEG-4, H.263), WMV, QuickTime® (DV, MJPEG, MPEG-4, H.264), non-encrypted DVD titles (incl. DVD-VR/+VR), DivX Plus® MKV
