MAGIX Movie Edit Pro is a video-editing program that allows you to easily edit videos from all kinds of different sources like HDV cameras, video tapes, DV Cameras and more.

MAGIX Movie Edit Pro is a super powerful program that includes loads of features, utilities, templates and tools. It is somewhat on the complex side and may be overwhelming for beginners, but MAGIX apparently tried to account for that and so Movie Edit Pro includes an optional “Beginner Mode” to help you get a feel for the program and the hang of using it. You can even switch back and forth from the Beginner mode to the advanced mode easily, in the middle of editing, making Movie Edit Pro very easy to learn.

You no longer have to be a professional video editor to make professional looking video. MAGIX Movie Edit Pro incorporates thousands of templates, wizards, effects and tools to help you make your video look exactly as you want it to look. Despite being fast and super powerful, the interface is intuitive and user friendly.

Since the first version was released in 2001, MAGIX Movie Edit Pro has gotten incrementally faster and more powerful while it has also gotten smarter: MAGIX Movie Edit Pro’s templates let you choose super-short cuts to edit in a flash for those times that you have neither the time nor inclination to get in there and work with all the utilities yourself. At the other end of the spectrum, there is so much packed into this program that any investment of time that you put into it will show in your final product, whether you are a novice or professional editor.

MAGIX Movie Edit Pro looks like it would be great for anybody with any interest in video editing, but especially for those who want to splice video from multiple different sources. If you are looking for something, which will let you put things together quickly and still look good, MAGIX Movie Edit Pro will do it. If you are a pro who want to cut no corners and manage every detail of the whole process, MAGIX Movie Edit Pro will do that too.

The only real drawback we see to it is it requires some powerful computing hardware. If you have that covered, this may be the perfect program for you.
