On the show floor Pinnacle Systems introduced Liquid Edition, a professional editing system with real-time compositing, effects and DVD authoring, all within the same user interface.

At the IBC show it was clear that Pinnacle Systems continues to tightly integrate its products into its vision of an IT-based end-to-end system approach. Judging by people's reaction to established products like the Vortex networked edit system and the FX Deko line of character generators, the industry is taking notice.

On the show floor Pinnacle Systems introduced Liquid Edition, a professional editing system with real-time compositing, effects and DVD authoring, all within the same user interface. The software is a combination of the company’s existing Liquid purple and Edition, two programs that offered similar features.

Liquid Edition is the first professional nonlinear video editing application to utilize both the CPU and GPU to provide more than 1,000 real-time 2D and true 3D effects, chroma and luma keys, and up to ten real-time streams. Other features include a primary and secondary color corrector, and slow-motion controls.


Liquid Edition features a primary and secondary color corrector, and slow-motion controls and offers background rendering so that editors do not have to interrupt their creative workflow.

The system also offers background rendering so that editors do not have to interrupt their creative workflow. With Liquid Edition Pro, there is analog out to a NTSC/PAL video monitor and/or tape from the timeline with real-time effects.

Liquid Edition also provides direct from the timeline DVD authoring. The DVD track appears alongside the standard audio and video tracks and enables the user to easily create and edit graphic menus directly within the editing environment. Wizards and templates expedite the DVD creation process.

Liquid Edition is part of the Pinnacle Liquid line which includes Liquid blue for multi-format broadcast environments, Liquid chrome for real-time post settings and Liquid silver for MPEG-2 post editing.

Liquid Edition version 5.5 is now available.
