Why upgrade from PS24 to PS25 - what’s new? 


1.  NEW! Easily and quickly track any object in your video with 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. Pinnacle Studio 25 Ultimate delivers this powerful new feature to elevate your editing experience and take it to new heights. 

2.  NEW! Create unexpected visual combinations with 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. Create natural combinations of clips, like flying birds over a landscape video or try your hand at contrasting combinations, like jumping dolphins over the night sky scene. Blend Modes boost your creativity and help to bring an artistic touch to your films. 

3.  NEW! Master your sound with advanced Audio Editing features. 

Make your audio sound crisp, clear, and unique with new audio editing features added to Pinnacle Studio 25! Identify the noise profile and remove it with Noise Reduction to ensure your voiceover or musical track is perfectly heard. Easily change the pitch/frequency of your audio with Pitch Scaling and play with your audio while preserving the original pitch and natural sound by using Time Stretching. Additionally, experiment with your sound system by mixing multiple sound tracks in 5.1 space. Make your video look and sound its very best! 

4.  NEW! Import 8K video for incredible quality content.  

Enjoy unrivaled quality content with significantly higher resolution, greater color, and incredible sound quality when you import 8K video. Save your production to your permanent collection and burn it to DVD with themed menus, sub-menus, and chapters. Select from 100+ stylish and customizable templates (only 50+ in Pinnacle Studio Plus), and quickly create personalized productions to share with friends and family. 

5.  ENHANCED! Explore new capabilities of Video Masking (ULTIMATE EXCLUSIVE) to edit freely and more efficiently.  

Enjoy all of the new possibilities added to the Pinnacle Studio PS25 Ultimate Mask Creator: convert Clip masks into Track masks and vice versa, and import nested projects as an asset on panel masks. Convert vector images to raster files and use raster tools successively in any order until the shape is complete – without creating a new shape each time. Each of these functions supports the development of your editing skills and enables you to produce your video projects in a more proficient manner. 

6.  ENHANCED! Enjoy a faster and smoother editing process with UI and performance improvements across the product.  

Pinnacle Studio 25 streamlines your editing workflow—we’re always listening and working with our users to implement changes that optimize your editing experience to ensure each Pinnacle Studio release is stronger than the last.  

Take letter-accurate control of your titles with an enhanced Title Editor, now including keyframe control for Font Size and Color. Experiment with improved 3D controls and new creative effects, like Dolly Zoom effect that makes it easy to zoom in and out of a specific object in your video while the rest of the footage remains unchanged.   

The improved user interface requires less hand/mind coordination because optimized functionality and parameter control lead to greater automation. The UI improvements along with the enhanced performance and stability, empower you to fully focus on the creative side of the editing process and not get bogged down by the technical details.
