I recently just bought a new 64 bit laptop and Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 15. I had several versions of Pinnacle Studio in the past (PS 12 with bonus disc) & PS 14). Do I have to purchase an unlock key for Prodad? I tried to load Prodad from the PS 12 disc and was told that I need an unlock key. I tried to follow the directions on your website and was successful at installing Magic Bullet but when unsuccessful with Prodad. With Magic Bullet, when I went through the transfer content on PS 15, I got the repair disc option but have been unable to get that screen since. I tried your Vitascene patch but still no luck, everything remains locked.

Hello Patricia,

If you had proDAD plugins unlocked in the past, you should keep them unlocked.
* If it was bought @ Pinnacle store, then request an unlock at Pinnacle through Pinnacle support.
* If it was bought @ proDAD store, then you should re-install it

Hope it helps,

I have upgraded to Avid studio from Pinnacle 14, which had Vitascene 1.0.( Is this the V1 version???)

Hello Mary,

No time to answer sooner, sorry.
Since you own VitaScene V1 as a bundle version (with Studio 14), you need the $75 upgrade only. Use the direct link provided in this article to upgrade and to avoid mistakes.

Good news, isn't it ???...

Thank you. Was able to buy the upgrade and install successfully with avid. Thanks for the tip of installing the 32bit version for Windows 7 64 bits PC. It didn't install with the 64 bit version

Successfully upgraded to VitaScene 2.0 into AVID Studio. The key is using the 32 bit version. I first installed the 64bit version because I'm running Win7 64bit, and although VitaScene worked fine as a standalone it was not showing up as a plug-in in AVID Studio. I downloaded and reinstalled the 32bit version and this time AVID Studio recognized all Studio versions, including a couple older Pinnacle versions and asked me if I wanted to associate the Plug-in.

@ Troy: Thanks for your feedback. I just modified the article, to try explaining it in a better way, to avoid that other people have this problem.

Have a nice day,

I downloaded VitaScene 2.0. It works fine as a stand alone, but has a watermark over it when using Pinnacle 15 ultimate.
No other versions on Studio on the computer. Studio 15 does not import from version 12. Any suggestions?

Hello Videoman3857,

You need to tell more regarding your installation.
Where did you download ? Free trial ? Pinnacle website ? Our website ? You said that you have no other version on the computer, and you are talking about version 12...

I am lost !! :-)

Friday, August 3, 2012 12:08 AM
Sorry DV

I have Studio 15 Ultimate. Full program - not upgrade.
I downloaded Vitascene2 from the link above because...
"The new VitaScene V2 executable file install VitaScene V2 as a plugin for AVID Studio and/or Pinnacle Studio (14/15). No need to buy the unlock plugin at the AVID/Pinnacle shop anymore (as it was the case in the past). Just buy the plugin on our website and you will obtain the plugin for all non linear video editing software which are compatible"

I have installed Vitascene2 and it works as stand alone, but when used with Studio15 there is a Pinnacle watermark.
I believe this version of Vitascene 2 is an upgrade for existing vitascene 1 and not a new full install as the information "install VitaScene V2 as a plugin for AVID Studio and/or Pinnacle Studio (14/15). No need to buy the unlock plugin at the AVID/Pinnacle shop" lead me to believe.

I have installed on my new dedicated video editing computer. Windows7 64 bit and new install of Pinnacle studio 15 Ultimate. No other versions of studio installed. Only Studio related plug-ins and effects and smart-sound.

My previous computer had studio 9 and I purchased upgrade to Studio 12 which had Vitascene1 and it was part of pinnacle 12 - no purchase required.

I check Studio 15 "import" from other versions and it does not allow the import from Studio 12.

How do I remove the watermark without installing studio12 or having to purchase another unlock key
Can I find an unlock key on my old computer that will unlock or let Vitascene2 "see" that I have vitascene1 ?

Thanx for your help

Hello Videoman,

I do confirm that the full version does not need a previous version or an already unlocked plugin. I also do confirm that it works with Pinnacle Studio 15 and that it is not an upgrade. BUT but but, you need to be sure that you bought the correct version. In the article above, you have different link, depending of your version !! There is a small price version for people who already bought VitaScene V1 (it's written: "{...} Special price are available for people who already have VitaScene V1 with a bundle version {...}".

In summary, you need to check what you bought on the website. It is written in your order, either an upgrade version, fulle version, version for bundle pack, etc...

In addition: did you download the demo version, or did you buy it ? We had problems in the past, when people download the demo version and then after buy the full version. Is it your case ?

Sunday, August 5, 2012 1:11 AM
Thanks DV.
I checked my version - It is UPGRADE. Cost $75
I had Vitascene V1 on my old computer it has Studio9, 12 and 15 and it worked.
I put it on my new computer that has only Studio 15.
It has Pinnacle water-mark.

Can I transfer Vitascene1 to studio15 from Studio12. I cannot find a way to transfer content from Studio12

Hello Videoman,

Yes you can !

That's clear with your explanation. In such case, you first need to activate and make VitaScene V1 working in Studio 15. Please follow our tutorial: Plugins installation for Studio 14 or Studio 15

Once done, upgrade to VitaScene V2. Note than you might need to uninstall Studio 15 and all plugins to perform VitaScene V1 activation (if VitaScene V2 is installed, it might interfered with VitaScene V1 activation).

Sunday, August 5, 2012 5:38 AM
Thanks DV
I will study the tutorials and see if I can make it work.
Thank you my friend

Merci DV
Je vais étudier les tutoriels et voir si je peux le faire fonctionner.
Merci mon ami

Hi. I've bought times ago Pinnacle Studio 15 Ultimate HD and use it with no problem. Last week i've got VitaScene V2 Pro build 193. I've installed it with no problem and during installation i've signed to integrate plugin for Studio 12 and Studio 15. when i open Pinnacle Studio 15 and i try to edit movie with VitaScene effect it says "activate now" and it bring me to avid unlock page. But on this page i can only buy other plugin! i've read that this version of VitaScene doesn't need other activation on Studio. So, what i have to do?

Tnx for the advice and sorry for my english.

Hello RangerFX,

You are not alone with this problem, please get in touch with proDAD support, and they will provide assistance with it. Tell them that we discuss together, I am on holidays and have limited internet access, therefore I can't help more than that, I will do so when coming back.

Hello Miroslav,

You posted twice, in two different article.
I have removed your previous comment to keep only this one which is more related to your question.

Yes, that's possible, if you are using VitaScene V2 full version (and no retail version). It's available on our website (with discount code), as well as on proDAD website.

Hi. Sorry if i answer only today but i had lot of problem at home. The situation is more bad than before. I've tried to uninstall all programm (pinnacle studio 12, pinnacle studio 15, vitascene 2.0), clean registry and then i've reinstalled pinnacle studio 15. after that i've installed vitascene but this time, during installation, it doesn't ask me to choose the plugin for pinnacle studio. i've try to install, uninstall but nothing..it doesn't see pinnacle studio 15 on my pc...

What can i do? why now it doesn't ask to choose plugin?

Hello Ranger FX,

It might happen if the installer is not designed for Pinnacle Studio. Silly question: are you sure that you are using the installer for Pinnacle Studio ?? Check your downloaded version, where it comes from, and try again.

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 4:42 AM
I haven't changed the installer and i think that installer is correct because at the first install (when both pinnacle 12 & 15 were installed), i have select which plugin install.

So might be that the registry has not been clean up correctly. I would propose to join our forums (see main page), to continue the discussion.
