Instant Project Templates: Quickly and easily create popular video styles with new templates that let you create video clips inspired by viral content on social media, edit social media posts, add themed intros, turn portrait videos into landscape, and create business webinars and presentations.
  • NEW! AR Stickers: Instantly add fun and personality to any video project with face-tracking stickers that enhance emotions and introduce playful moments to your videos.
  • ENHANCED! Performance: VideoStudio Ultimate 2021 is optimized for the latest video hardware acceleration technologies from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA, improving previews and speeding up rendering to popular file formats. 
  • ENHANCED! Mask Creator: Expand your creative possibilities with new keyframe controls that allow you to quickly and efficiently adjust the position, size, and angles of your video masks. Jump right into the Mask Creator, without selecting any clips, to create windows in your project and achieve cinema-quality special effects and transitions.
  • ENHANCED! Usability: Enjoy a simpler and more intuitive editing experience from import to export. New Replace Mode lets you drag and drop footage to Instant Project Templates or Split Screen videos with ease.

The new Auto Motion Blur automatically applies the optimal level of blur effect to make motion in your video look more natural, and makes editing customized animations easier than ever.

Premium Effects: Achieve remarkable creative transformations and go beyond basic editing using the expanded collection of premium effects from NewBlue FX and more than 100 VitaScene effects from proDAD.
