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.

"ABSOLUTELY THE WORST"

November 24, 2014  |  By livinith20

 |  Version: 123VideoMagic Pro 5.1

Pros

I purchased it in a "kit" from the company. The kit came with a green screen and lights

Cons

The software does not work as promised. The company is unreliable and plays games. They are clearly in a foreign country and repeatedly switch you to different representatives and claim that "tech" support will assist you but they never do. I wanted a refund for the software portion of the "kit" and the company refused stating that the software was provided "free". This was a complete lie as no where on the page of order does it say the software is free. In addition, all you get is a download even though they show a picture of a software box on the page of the order. They then provide you with a key and when the software does not work, you have to try to un-install the software and then reinstall and the key no longer works. Too much of a hassle. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Summary

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Try something else.

Updated on Nov 24, 2014
