New Features in Pinnacle Studio 25

NEW Smart Object Tracking

Edit more efficiently and save a lot of time with new Smart Object Tracking, intelligent, shape-aware motion tracking for masks applied on common objects. Now you can easily apply masks to objects in your video–from pets and cars, to drones, and more. There is no need to re-create masks for each frame because smart technology automates the process by recognizing the original masked object and tracks it throughout the selected episode.

Available exclusively in ULTIMATE.

NEW Blend Modes

Improvise on the fly with Blend Modes and choose how one clip blends with another—from creating a superimposed effect, to blending masked areas, or creating light bleeds or other color and exposure effects. Each Blend Mode uses a different formula to combine the color and brightness values in a selected clip with the values in an underlying clip. Blend Modes boost your creativity and help to bring an artistic touch to your films.

Available in PLUS and ULTIMATE.

    Seit vielen Jahren erstellte ich mit Pinnacle 12 sehr gute Filme. Leider funktioniert es heute nicht mehr. Daher habe ich mich mühsam mit Pinnacle 22 vertraut gemacht und einen Film geschnitten. Das Problem ist: Ich kann Daten auf Disc brennen, aber keine Filme! Was ist zu tun?

      Hello Nora,

      The system requirements for Pinnacle Studio 17 were Windows 8, 7, and Vista with SP2. As it is not formally compatible with Windows 10, we would not be able to guarantee its ability to run in that operating system.

      Hope this helps,

    Having been a Pinnacle Studio user for over 20 years . Now have Studio 24 — I find it very complicated – Great fan Of studio 15 which was fine and simple to use.
    Having captured my video from my Sony Camera, it should be easy from – but it is not. I need help otherwise I wasted money

      I have been on Pinnacle since version 8, stopped using the redesigned version since version 16 – and used only version 15 for years – but for some reasons i continued to buy the following versions (without using them). When version 24 was on my PC – and i got the Pinnacle 24 Ultimate, i said that it was crazy to have all the versions without using any of the new. Now i had to learn to navigate in the new design.
      After 2 weeks “try and learn”, i really like like what it can create for me and the videos i place on YouTube, BUT it has been a hard and long walk the past weeks.
      Complicated – yes, when the old design is “in your fingers”, but now i can’t imagine to go back to the old design.
      What i could recommend for a change, will be the “Text” and “Title” functions. It is really hard work and a lot of “mouse work” to create a cool title or text animation.

    Just bought Pinnacle Studio 24. I used Pinnacle some years ago – i can’t find a way to import VHS tapes from my VCR – using a Pinnacle 500-USB capture device.

    Is this feature no longer available in Pinnace 24?

    Saluto tutti i componenti del Forum. Leggendo un post pregresso ho letto Eula per la seconda istallazione. Ho pinnacle studio ultimate 19. In EULA second computer installation Pinnacle non è nemmeno menzionato, come non fosse un software della Corel e anche nei siti Corel non lo troviamo mai nominato se non in quelli dedicati. Per la Corel è un software meno importante e le nuove relaise con novità centellinate servono solo a tappare i buggs e al Bilacio o è parte del software Corel e merita le dovute attenzioni come gli altri software? Posso quindi installarlo nel mio laptop oltre che nel desktop come tutti gli altri Sw Corel? Gradirei una risposta in merito. Grazie

    Why does Corel Discovery Center ‘Get In Touch’ bottom search area list all Corel mainstream products, yet Corel’s own home page does not? I find it very frustrating that the ‘Pinnacle’ product line is not listed, as well as other ‘Corel’ owned products. Getting flipped from web page to web page when trying to solve a problem by forum group or other means is ????? Why can you not launch ALL your products from a single home page?????

    I have Pinnacle Studio 21 and I can only do English on my version but I want to be able to do English and Japanese subtitles together. In other versions of Pinnacle Studio is a language pack included so that I can use multiple languages? Right now when I try Japanese text it shows up as rectangles so the only way I can do Japanese is by saving text as a picture in PowerPoint and then importing it which is VERY inconvenient. Thanks for any info!

      Hello Tony,

      If you are using a text tool, Pinnacle Studio detects and uses the fonts you have installed on your computer – if you download a Japanese font pack and install it (see Microsoft’s instructions on installing fonts in Windows), then re-launch Pinnacle Studio, you should be able to enter and display Japanese text without issues.

      Depending on your region, box copies may be available to allow for installation if a downloadable copy is not feasible. Head to the Pinnacle Studio homepage for more information!

      As for slow motion, here is a tutorial on Time Remapping that can help make smooth slow motion or high-speed sequences!

      Hello Edwin,

      No, you do not have to uninstall the previous version of Pinnacle Studio – you can run them side by side if needed. As for video formats, you can find the full list on the Pinnacle Studio Tech Specs page.

    The program can Import 4k videos. But the exported clips are no longer 4k (compressed to 1/2 of the amount of data). Do I miss something? or ist it impossible to maintain 4k?

    January 9, 2020 at 10:27 am
    • Adam Reply

      Hello Herbert,

      What option are you using to export files? The easiest way to export in 4k is via the Exporter tab up at the top, and ensuring you have a 4k export format selected. While there is also the legacy export tool, we don’t recommend using it in this situation.

      Hello Angel,

      The number of computers you can install Pinnacle Studio 23 onto depends on the parts of the End User License Agreement that are binding in your country of residence. To make sure you get the correct information, we would suggest reading the Corel EULA section labelled “Second Computing Device” to determine your license restrictions regarding additional installations.
