Default Studio vs Ultimate for videos

hi to all community, I am new to avid and I would like to buy the studio version to learn the program and use for small video production.
So my question is: is it ok just the studio version or is it mandatory the ultimate version for sound design?
thx for all of your response.

Hi!

Video import is available on Pro Tools Studio so you should be good on this version.

Hope this helps!

Be sure to look at the differences between Studio and Ultimate when it comes to video. Studio is one video track per session with no video editing capability, while Ultimate can have multiple video tracks and has rudimentary video editing capabilities.

yeah I need only one video track only for the sound design so I think the studio is ok for my workflow.
thanks a lot

I suggest you get a subscription for a month or so to Studio and make sure it works for you.. if you purchase the wrong perpetual license version you cannot upgrade later on. The limited video capability in Studio means it does have limited use in the post/video field (and also missing field recorder workflow, and frame accurate sync without HD/HDX/Ultimate and Digilink hardware with Sync HD (at significant cost) and other feature differences also help reduce Studio use in professional video/post areas -- which may all be irrelevant to you).

Be careful on names, the product is Pro Tools, and specifically Pro Tools Studio or Pro Tools Ultimate, the company is Avid. And if anything if you say "Avid" with video production related stuff people are likely to assume you are talking about Avid Media Composer, the Avid video editing suite, which is de-facto called "Avid" by many folks in the video/film industry.

In addition, Reaper DAW can handle the video if you didn't know it. It is much cheaper but of course everything depends on the needs!
