Who all here is using Magix Movie Pro edit 12? I’m thinking about forming a users group. I don’t think there already is one. Posts in this thread will give me some feedback as to there being enough interest. From Video Deluxe 2.0 to Edit 12 or other Magix editors, if you use them and would be interested, post a note here.
I’m using MEP 11 Plus (the UK version) for my video editing (although I live in Canada)…looking forward to MEP 12 Plus (or whatever they call it) that should be out in the next month or so.
Its a shame that Magix has such a smorgsborg of versions (Video Deluxe 2008 -Germany, France and others; Movie Edit Pro 11 & 11 Plus United Kingdom and a few other countries; MEP 12 US & Canada…etc…) and where the feature list is different for each. I love MEP 11 Plus with the keyframe editor, audio mastering suite, etc that is missing from the US and Canada version.
And the Video Deluxe 2008Audio & Effects edition (Germany only) has all kinds of neat bells and whistles (ProDad Vitascene, iClone, Dolby Digital ™ 5.1 plug in) that just don’t filter down to the other versions…
Anyway, its a great editor…
I just purchased MEP 12 and am trying to get used to all that it has. I have been using Adobe Elements 2.0. It is a good program, but it is old and I wanted to try something new. This is my first time to use a Magix program. I think I am going to enjoy it. Do you have any good suggestions for me?
Just play with it! The more you play, the more you will learn. Experiment! You’re going to love it!
Aspyrider is right, just grab some footage and get editing…there are many layers to Magix…as a beginner you can just do simple movies, as an intermediate there is a lot you can achieve with video cleaning/processing/effects, and as you get advanced the multiple tracks, virtualdub plug ins,integratedphoto- and audio editor, and a slew of other features means that you can let your imagination go wild…
I find the built-in tutorials helpful, but for more information and for tips and tricks you can’t beat a few websites dedicated to MEP…
