New Features

Motion Tracking with Mosaic Blur
When you want to put the focus on certain people or objects in your video, or hide them, Motion Tracking is the perfect tool. Add moving text or graphics to track players in a sporting event, or draw attention to particular guests at a big event. Is there a face, logo or license plate in your video you don't want to show? Apply a mosaic blur to easily obscure it. Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate supports multi-point motion tracking, so you can track multiple points of an object in your video for greater precision as the tracked object approaches or moves away from your lens.
Stop Motion Animation
Create big screen-style animations and Full HD stop motion videos with Stop Motion Animation. Plug in your camera and tap into the processing power and unique lens capabilities of your DSLR directly from Pinnacle Studio 20 to capture each frame of your animated story. Control camera settings, see overlay frames, set distances and capture frames automatically or manually. Improved controls for overlay frames and distances, and radial and curve guides give you more control and better results.
Optimized for Latest Technologies & Formats
Keeping pace with the latest formats, Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate offers new HEVC (H.265) import/export support on Intel 6th generation or certain NVIDIA cards. Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate also supports XAVC, MXF, 4K/HD smart encoding and enhanced playback and VFR video, and delivers powerful 64-bit performance.
360° Video Editing
Edit 360° video or convert it into standard video with Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate. Easily import video shot with a 360° camera and work on it in the timeline. Add titles or specific landmarks to your video, and easily trim the start and end points. Export and playback on a 360° video player and enjoy your video from all angles. Or convert 360 video to standard video to share on the big screen, using keyframes to control the path/view you want to show.
NewBlueVideo Essentials III
With its own 2,000 2D/3D effects, animated titles, and transitions, Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate offers a comprehensive list of creativity. But now with the additional NewBlueFX Video Essentials III package, you get another 175 presets.

Enhanced Multi-Camera Editing
Make your movies look their best from every angle with the 6-angle Multi-Camera Editor. View and edit footage, switch angles, cut and delete, and add transitions to smoothly connect your footage. Align clips automatically with Audio Syncing, or use markers, date/time, or manual syncing. Combine your multi-camera results with the picture-in-picture effect to add excitement to your movie.
Enhanced Timeline Editing on Unlimited Tracks
Now it's easier to apply many of the sophisticated effects that give your videos professional polish, in HD, 4K, or 3D. Easy Track Transparency lets you adjust the opacity of tracks, so you can see both at the same time in an overlay effect. A streamlined workflow lets you apply the Pan and Zoom effect in fewer steps using presets, and edit your Picture-in-Picture footage size and location directly in the preview pane. Frame-accurate editing on unlimited tracks gives you precision control over how you tell your story. See source clips and your timeline edit preview simultaneously for an intuitive flow.
Enhanced High-Quality Sound and Music
Working with audio is even more precise with easy, new audio keyframing. Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate ensures your audio is crisp and clear with Audio Ducking, which detects audio or narration and automatically lowers the volume of background sound. Adjust the Ducking Level and Sensitivity if you wish for even more control. Add music with the ScoreFitter library of royalty-free sounds and songs that automatically adjust to fit the length of your movie. For even more selection, try the Pinnacle Studio store for easy access to royalty free music tracks from Triple Scoop Music and sound effects from Muzerk.
Enhanced Live Screen Capture
Record content directly from your screen, capturing both system audio and sound. Easily capture onscreen content to add to your movies, presentations, or training videos. You can even record dual screen, a selected window, or a selected area of your screen. Then bring capture files to the timeline to integrate into your projects.
Enhanced Easy DVD Authoring
Put your audience in the right mood for your video with themed menus, sub-menus, and chapters on your DVDs. Pinnacle Studio 20 Ultimate includes 100+ stylish templates in Pinnacle MyDVD, so you can quickly create a high-quality, personalized DVD to share with friends and family.

    Studio 20 Ultimate is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good buy I have had issues with both 19 and 20. 4K monitor, 40 G memory and neither function properly. Help is messy too. Exporting is a disaster.
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior product! Haven't been able to do even simple video editing because only audio loads into the editing screens, no video. Tried searching support forums but nothing had remedied the issue yet.
    Date published: 2017-03-02
