The hobby editing program Pinnacle Studio is getting more and more professional features. Last year saw the introduction of keyframes, version 22 now includes more options for color correction and grading -- all program variants support LUTs, image tone curves are only available in Plus & Ultimate, control via color wheels and waveform is reserved for the Ultimate version. In Plus & Ultimate, three-point and four-point machining is also new in terms of cutting. The video sequences are not dragged directly onto the timeline and trimmed there, but so-called in and out points are defined beforehand, whereupon the desired sections of the clips can be created precisely on the timeline. In addition, automatic motion tracking is said to have been improved.
In all three Pinancle variants, animated 3D titles are new as well as a multicam capture, in which the screen content and the image of a webcam can be recorded simultaneously, for example for video tutorials or the like. In the Ultimate version, it seems that 3D objects can be animated in the 3D title editor in addition to 3D titles. Split-screen videos can also be manipulated dynamically using keyframes. As an add-on, the NewBlue Video Essentials 1 package is now included in this version.
Corel Pinnacle Studio 22 with its limited editing possibilities costs 59.95 Euro, the Plus version 99.95, the Ulimate -- which offers a 4K editing -- is available for 129.95 Euro. A detailed comparison of the respective functional scope can be found here.
