    I have purchased and downloaded VideoStudio Ultimate 2019 but ProDAD does not appear in the FX menu. What should I do to access it?

      Hello Ben,

      The ProDAD suite is included in the Ultimate Collection, which is a separate installer from VideoStudio 2019 itself. To access it, just download the Ultimate Collection (the download link is included with your order), run the installer, and launch VideoStudio!

      Hello David,

      Thank you for getting in touch! Are you using the Ultimate edition of VideoStudio 2019? ProDAD tools are part of the Ultimate Content Pack, and are not available in the base version of VideoStudio.

      Hello Alexandru,

      Did you purchase the Ultimate edition of VideoStudio? ProDAD is a part of the Ultimate Effect Collection, and is not included in the Pro edition.

      If you did purchase the Ultimate edition, ProDAD is included in the Ultimate Collection download, which is a separate download from the program itself. The download link for your purchase can be found in the same email as the VideoStudio installer.

      Hope this helps!

    I purchased 2018 Ulitimate upgrade just recently but was not sent the link to ProDAD Mercalli SE, and there is no clear explanation on how to find it. Do you get this with the upgrade?

      Hello Adrian,

      ProDAD Mercalli is included in the Ultimate Collection installer, which is separate from the main VideoStudio 2018 installer. Have you run both installation files, or only VideoStudio? If you have run both and Mercalli is still not showing up, we can certainly look into this with you!

      Hello Khan,

      Did you purchase Corel VideoStudio X10 regular, or ultimate? The ProDAD and Mercalli tools are only available in the Ultimate edition, and are located in a separate installation file from VideoStudio itself.

      Hope this helps!

          Hello Paksanboy,

          If you have the Ultimate edition of VideoStudio Pro X7, yes! The Ultimate edition includes several ProDAD tools, and can be found on DVD 2 of a boxed installer, or in the Ultimate Content installation file if you bought a downloaded copy.

          Hope this helps!

      You must set the project settings the same as the settings for the rendered file and then apply the filter

    Great tutorial but it would be nice to be able to follow it with the sample footage being used, so a download link to the file would be very useful.
