    "A useless program"

    December 28, 2011  |   By Got_Milk-

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 18.0

    Pros

    You can edit and do all sorts of things with the program.. but..... (read cons)

    Cons

    The editing is pointless because when it comes time to saving the file to where its readable on other programs (exporting or converting), the program freezes completely. I managed to get one file out after one hour of having the program frozen, but you cannot even fast forward it, and the video cuts off early. I do not have a bad computer either. I run major games and programs on this computer, and it is only this program.

    Summary

    If the program didn't crash and was useable, it would be a great program.

    "This is a toy"

    September 30, 2011  |   By gspnam

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    Downloaded pretty fast

    Cons

    No time code

    Summary

    Probably fine for 'tube videos. Nothing "professional" or "plus" about it.

    Updated on Oct 1, 2011

    The constant crashes may be attributable to incompatibility with my Win7 x64, hard to say. Behaves bizarrely. Projects do not save and/or save wherever the program cannot find them 2 seconds later.

    Deleted "takes" reinsert themselves... the list goes on and I've only used it a few hours and produced exactly nothing.

    My rating is 0, a real POS.

    "Crashes when initiallizing a project"

    July 25, 2011  |   By txsar

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    nice interface and user tools

    Cons

    constantly crashes when loading a saved work. Deletes the work you are trying to load. (lost) ALL data from our China adoption videos...Thanks MAGIX... your application has magically ruined my files.... we really appreciate that!

    Summary

    you are better off using the editor that comes with XP, or adobe.
    Save your money and buy a more stable application. I had high hopes for this app when I bought it, but I'm suffering from a severe case of buyer's remorse. Magix has lost our business for good.

    "My version is very good"

    July 24, 2011  |   By don benskin

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    Ease of use

    Cons

    No Commnet

    Summary

    I have NOT downloaded the latest vesrion, I have Magix EditPro 14 plus (version 7.5.2.11). This is a marvellous programme, far superior to competitors. HOWEVER, it would appear that my version is no longer supported and I fail to see why I should spend more good money when I am entirely satisfied with what I have.

    "Beware - Does Not Completely Uninstall"

    May 31, 2011  |   By testerb

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    Nice Interface with useful features

    Cons

    Does not uninstall all of the programs it puts on your computer. So far I have found 3 programs it left after uninstalling it. It also will not use codecs such as those for 5.1 sound that are already installed on your system.

    Summary

    Without the ability to use all features their trial program is useless. Couple that with the extra programs it installs, which it installs without asking or even saying it is, makes this a very dubious choice and best left alone.

    I could never recommend software that behaves this way, nor would I ever use it.

    "Version 16 Works Better"

    May 19, 2011  |   By mjraines

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    Faster rendering, easy audio controls for mixing, editing screen was enlarged from previous version.

    Cons

    With this version, I had trouble getting imported VOB files to sync voice to video. Tech support expires fairly quickly. Editing screen was made larger but is still small.

    Summary

    I have version 16 which for me works better; no issues of video sync. Don't spend your money on V17 stay with the 16.

    "Fantastic Program"

    April 21, 2011  |   By leonam78

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    You get a lot for the money

    Cons

    Long time to install

    Summary

    I FOUND USING Magix's Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus to be very friendly and made me look like a pro. The ease of editing my video and inserting some still shots was great. Putting the titles with animation really made them look good and choosing from hundreds of transitions was a breeze, all though using key frames was a little tricky. Using one of the effects I was able to enhance parts of the video that was too dark also changed the color of certain clips. Adding some background music and chapter markers made the finished video very nice. Using the burn section with ready made backgrounds made the disk look very professional. The burning to disk was all automatically accomplished.

    "Works great with GoPro HD mp4 files"

    April 19, 2011  |   By kwebmail

    Version: Magix Movie Edit Pro Plus 2014 17.0 Plus

    Pros

    Can drag and drop GoPro .mp4 files into the editor
    Trimming the video is supersimple and intuitive
    No additional file conversion steps needed (ie, mp4 to avi)
    Lots of HD output options

    Cons

    I'm still playing with the trial version so I may not have uncovered problems or idiosyncrasies.
    You do need to do some acrobatics to get 'direct to youtube' uploads working but this is mainly the fault of youtube/google.

    Summary

    I've never heard of this company before but the search for a quick and easy way to work with the .mp4 files that GoPro HD saves in led me to this. Other programs (movie maker, etc) I found require a conversion step to .avi before the video editor can use the files....that's kind of a pain in the ass so when I stumbled on Magix I decided to give it a try.
    I normally HATE working with video because there's so much detailed crap you have to mess with but this program is pretty straightforward and I started using it without even reading the instructions (drop file on timeline, trim ends, add effects, add title, output in desired format, etc etc.).
    To allow the program to do direct uploads to youtube I did have to login to google accounts, then setup a program access process which is WAY more complicated than it needs to be. It requires 2-step authentication turned on so go through that process if you want to use this function. Otherwise I've had the program about a week and so far so good, I'll be buying it in the next couple of weeks unless I uncover something seriously broken.....in which case I'll log back in and tell you about it!
    Right now it basically does what I want it to do with a minimum of effort. That's all I ask.
