MAGIX Software GmbH has updated its movie-editing product range with the release of MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2014. Also available in Plus and Premium versions, the new build comes with the promise of improved multi-track performance through more efficient use of multi-core PCs.
The new build also comes with “tons” of new content, with all elements now HD and 16:9 compatible. Movie Edit Pro 2014 also gains HDR effects for the first time too, while Plus and Premium users gain a new proxy editing feature.
Movie Edit Pro 2014 comes with the promise of now being capable of supporting up to eight simultaneous AVCHD tracks on a Core i7 PC, an increase of five on the previous version. This has been achieved through more efficient use of the multi-core architecture in the playback engine’s threading model.
Plus and Premium users also gain a new proxy editing feature, which creates virtual copies of original video files that are simpler to edit and smoother to navigate and preview, even if the original material is 4K footage. The original files are then accessed when the final edited version is exported.
The new content includes DVD/Blu-ray and movie templates, plus intro and outro elements, while new HDR effects allow users to create unique looking photos and videos using high dynamic range.
The latest build is also better optimised for touch displays, with key controls such as preview window buttons, the timeline and menu bar now supporting touch on compatible Ultrabooks and displays – those who purchase the Plus or Premium edition also get the companion MAGIX Movie Edit Touch Windows 8 app for free.
Finally, support for Intel WiDi also allows users to stream content from the preview window to compatible devices wirelessly.
You can purchase full versions of all three packages in the Downloadcrew Software Store, with MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2014 available now with a 14 per cent saving on its MSRP at just $59.99. You also receive Video Sound Cleaning Lab, worth $59.99, free with every order.
Also available are MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2014 Plus, which comes with added functionality including with a 99-track timeline, full stereo 3D support, multicam editing, audio dubbing in 5.1 surround sound, many additional effects (including HDR), professional movie templates, and custom menu design. This is available for $89.99, a saving of 10 per cent on the MSRP.
Finally, MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2014 Premium comes with additional tools worth over $450 in the form of pro colour correction plug-in NewBlue ColorFast and proDAD Heroglyph V4 PRO, which adds extra templates to the tool’s existing set. It can be purchased for just $99.99, a saving of 23 per cent on the MSRP.
