Magix Movie Edit Pro: A good choice?

Post by zacharywebb » Fri Jan 12, 2018 7:15 am

Is Magix Movie Edit Pro a good video editor for podcasting and making YouTube videos?
I am currently using VSDC Video Editor Free.
I can get Magix for $10.26 including shipping.

I’m not sure of the specific version you are looking at but overall Magix is a solid professional-like package. I use Movie Studio Platinum 14.0 and it hasn’t failed me yet.

I think Stephen is testing out that version right now. He’s liked it so far but can see where they made improvements in the next version. I think it would be a great buy at that price.

Magix is very confusing. To clarify - Magix Movie Edit Pro is an entirely different product than the one SP and I use - Magix Movie Studio.

The backstory is that Magix purchased the Vegas line a couple years back from Sony, even though they already had a video editor (the Movie Edit Pro) - that's why they have the two lines -- Magix Movie Edit AND Magix Vegas (which the consumer version of vegas is title Movie Studio).

I looked into Magix Movie Edit awhile ago and wasn't that impressed. Compared to Magix Movie Studio, it has a significant lack of features such as lack of FLAC support.

After experimenting with a variety of consumer editor over the last 3-4 years, I would not recommend Magix Movie Edit and instead would recommend waiting for a good deal on Magix Movie Studio (the Vegas version at http://www.vegascreativesoftware.com/ca ... -platinum/).

I am currently experimenting with Magix Vegas Pro 14 (last year's version) and it's amazing how much of the Vegas professional line features are in the consumed edition of Magix Movie studio. Hands down my recommendation is Movie Studio over the other consumer options because of functionality. The audio tracks can all have independent VST added to them - a feature often only found in an Audio DAW. It's a MASSIVE TIME saver.

There are a few versions of Magix Movie Studio - I think the best bang for the buck is Platinum. The basic version has a 10 video track limit - which is easy to cap if you do a few overlays. I wouldn't recommend going with the basic edition and would encourage you to go with the Platinum version. There is often sales on it - right now it's on for $59 and I think you may be able to get a further coupon code signing up to their newsletter.
