Editors' Review

Video Magic's 123 VideoMagic Pro uses green screen technology to create Hollywood-type video effects on your PC. While its results are hardly professional, this simple and fun program can insert you into any almost scene with ease.

The program's interface is impressively simple, with a three-step process that provides onscreen direction. A Help file that's actually helpful offers further instructions. The program can record or import video, although the publisher neglects to mention that imported video requires a green screen to work. The recording portion requires a video input such as a camera equipment. The program performs best when imaging single human subjects in flat, unwrinkled clothes, which makes for crisper backgrounds after the greening process. In tests, it produced video of the test subject superimposed on a lime-green background. The next step was to apply a photo image as the background. We could make our subject appear to be anywhere from a forest to a desert to outer space. A simple drag-and-drop editing tool finishes off your video with music and transition effects. The program also provides some helpful extras, such as a built-in teleprompter for recording and subject visibility adjustment for the green screen. While the end product certainly won't fool many people, it was easy to make and a ton of fun, too.

There's a five-second video limit to 123 VideoMagic Pro, and you can't save files. In installs desktop icons without permission and leaves folders behind after uninstalling. Nevertheless, we love this fun and functional program.

    "Value for money"

    June 12, 2013   |   By adelachris77

    Version: 123VideoMagic Pro 4.1

    Pros

    The software has a wonderful feature to mask the video. It masked the intensity of green shade in the background. It allows to publish videos in multiple formats like avi, mpg, mpeg or wmv.

    Cons

    I did not face any trouble using the software.

    "Software WAS great while it worked?!"

    August 27, 2012   |   By mrjcleveland

    Version: 123VideoMagic Pro 3.0

    Pros

    I used it for videos and still images and it worked like a charm. Exactly what I needed.

    Cons

    For some reason the foreground video would only be visible in a black and white soupy looking image. I have emailed support (6 times in two weeks) and have called, I don't know how many times, during the last two weeks with no response. Are they still in business?

    Summary

    I'll rate the program while it was working as excellent. I rate the customer service (support) as nonexistent. Is there a forum or a clearing house where formal complaints against inept companies can be filed?
