MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 11

Movie Edit

So many people have written lamenting that there are no movie-making products for Windows quite like the Apple's iMovie HD and iDVD products. Until the latest iteration of Movie Edit, from Magix, there wasn't. But now, Windows users, your time has come...

MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 11 is an easy-to-use home video editing software for up and coming filmmakers and hobbyists alike. Be it HD support for crystal clear movies or fast and fun-packed editing with a few clicks: Movie Edit Pro 11 brings a complete film studio onto the PC for $59.99. (only $44.99 from Amazon.com)

Movie Edit Pro 11 is the choice for consumers and semi-professionals to create home movies that the whole family can watch on TV - with surround sound and HD-DVD-Menus. Although remarkably easy-to-use with editing wizards, automatic scene recognition, and chapter markers, Movie Edit Pro 11 is also extremely powerful. Camcorder & Computer Video Magazine chose MAGIX Movie Edit Pro as its "Top Pick" in June 2005, calling it, "Incredibly powerful...This program can do almost anything the $500 programs can do." And Videomaker said, "No video editing software has ever offered so many features for so little money, period."

Unleash Your Creativity

It's never been easier to turn your home video recordings into movies. Movie Edit Pro 11 lets consumers create their videos with support for surround sound, HD-TV, 16:9 widescreen, and Double Layer DVDs. On 16 tracks, Movie Edit Pro 11 produces video with amazing cuts, special effects, 3D transitions, exciting animated menus, and superior overdubbing.Movie edit story board
