MAGIX Movie Edit Pro is one of those apps. It allows you to import videos from DV cameras, HDV cameras and video tapes, as well as use video files stored on your local computer and record video directly from your PC. This offers exciting new possibilities to create your own video slideshows with your own menus and extras.
MAGIX Movie Edit Pro includes not only a full featured video editing tool, but also specific utilities to add titles to your movie, spice it up with filters and effects, and also create the perfect complementary soundtrack.
While the program makes maximum use of processing power while cutting, recalculating and arranging video files, it still requires a pretty powerful system for a smooth, seamless experience. Also, if this is the first time you use a video editor, I’d strongly advise you to take a look at the Help menu: MAGIX Movie Edit Pro may seem a bit overwhelming, but luckily it’s also very well documented.
Pinnacle Studio HD is a massive video editor that includes all the tools and features you need to create your own movies.
As soon as you view the example project provided for users of Pinnacle Studio HD, it’s clear that the program can be made to create really impressive video projects, either for professional-looking creations or more homey endeavors, such as family vacation videos.
Pinnacle Studio HD is aware that the program is a little intimidating-looking, so it provides great help in the form of an introductory video, help files and online tutorials. Even so, once you start to use the editor, you’ll see that it is actually very user friendly: Pinnacle Studio automatically divides your media into chapters and, crucially, supports drag and drop of all items, so assembling a video couldn’t be easier.
