MAGIX Movie Edit Pro Editor's Review

When it comes to professional level video editing for PC, most users think of heavyweight apps from stables of Adobe or Corel. However, not every user can afford to shell out the money required for licensing such top end video editors. If you need a capable video editing app that offers reasonable feature set, good overall performance yet does not cost a bomb, try Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus. The newest edition of Magix’s prosumer level video editor app boasts of notable enhancements like support for AVCHD 60p format, speed boost and multi-cam video capability.

Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus is compatible with Windows XP and later OS versions. The Plus version is now being offered at a discounted rate, which makes it a bargain deal. One gripe with the app is that in default installation mode it adds a system cleaning tool and browser toolbar by default. To evade this, you have to select custom installation mode. In trial mode, you can use it with all functionalities enabled for a month.

The app features identical dark interface like its previous iterations. You get a Welcome dialog when launching the app but it contains fewer options compared to rival apps. The app features a three-panel interface with source and on top part. The timeline itself occupies a large part of interface. While the interface is not as modal as competing apps, Movie Edit Pro offers options for Export, edit and burn on top-right part. You can add up to 99 tracks in this version. The processing speed, while not the best in its class, is still quite decent.  

You can change the timeline view to storyboard as and when desired and Movie Edit Pro’s storyboard is more functional than that of other apps. It offers you options for sound volume, text, transitions etc. Using mouse wheel you can zoom the app’s timeline. It would have been nice if the video preview pane was equipped with a pause button.

This app can import video from several sources. However, in the import tab you will only get access to PC folders. For importing footage from a device you need to select the Record button and options provided are AVCHD, DV camera, Audio, analog TV input etc. The majority of editing work is done in the app’s timeline area. The trimming tools are decent and you can work with them easily. In this app, transitions are named fades.

By default, the app offers you one movie template but you may download 17 others from its website. This is similar to Apple iMovie. You may also choose two other movie making methods namely- Slideshow Maker and Travel Route Animation, the latter being a wizard. In Slideshow Maker mode, you can add background music and transitions. In this mode, all contents can be customized including texts and effects.

Advanced users who deal with professional video editing and post production work, will not be disappointed with the app either. Its movement effects are precise and you can reposition, resize and rotate clips with ease. The enhanced chroma keying effect in Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus is quite effective too. It will cope with the green screen footage nicely, even at automatic settings. The Magix team also deserves praise for the Time stretching feature implementation. It lets users adjust speed of one clip to match length of another clip in timeline.

The app’s Stabilization tool does a decent job but it is a three step method. You may want to go through the app’s help section to get better result from this feature, as it is. For instant result, select the Perform stabilization option. It does take some time and this is true of almost all video editor apps. The result may not always be what you desire, though. Movie Edit Pro offers you are 25 PiP preset options. Its Color correction and Color Effects panels offer you plenty of tweaking options. However, they cannot match up Premiere Elements’s superior three-way color correction.

When it comes to adding effects and transitions to clips, Movie Edit Pro fares well but it is not among the top contenders in its category. The Artistic filter sets however produce interesting effects. Same can be said about its included Distortion tool. While you can add objects like arrows or hats, they cannot be made to follow people or other objects with motion tracking, something which is offered by rival Corel’s VideoStudio. You may download more effects from Magix website including Liquid and noise reduction. The app lets you add titles and subtitles and customization options are aplenty. For text titles, fortunately, you can choose from plethora of motion paths.

The inclusion of multiple camera feature is a welcome addition in Movie Edit Pro but it still needs refinement. There is no clip auto alignment option yet. Besides, the app supports just 2 angles while Final Cut Pro offers support for 64. With Magix Music Editor, you can edit or tweak audio clips and add funky effects when you desire so. Conversion of audio formats is also possible. The integrated synthesizer lets you add variety of sounds like applause and flowing water. Magix was among first contenders to enter into 3D video editing arena and this feature is present in this app. The result is not the best but for its price, the output is decent.

When it comes to export, Movie Edit Pro offers wide device compatibility. Its Export wizard lets you find the desired platform and best suited format. You can export 3D movie, videos for iPhone, Nintendo DS and iPads too. What’s more, you get the option to export videos to its online albums. You also get provisions to burn the output on a wide array of optical media variants.

Positive Points:
 -  Intuitive and appealing interface, largely customizable too.
 -  Lots of effects and transitions.
 -  Decent performance and speed.
 -  Wide export and burning options.

Negative Points:
 -  Multicam support is quite basic.
 -  Installation tends to add bloatware.
 -  No motion tracking for inserted objects.

Conclusion:
Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus offers a lot of editing features to users and also packs in a fair amount of effects. The interface is user friendly with lots of customization possibilities. The wide output options, decent processing speed, support for multi-cam and 3D video make it appear like a near perfect contender in its category, However, when you compare it with pricier contenders, the cracks begin to become prominent. The multi-cam feature pales away when compared to rival apps and the 3D capabilities till need some polishing to produce desired results. However, beginner or intermediate level users will find little to complain about the app.

Rating: 3.5/5
