We think MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 16 is a very capable and feature-rich editor that comes packed with ways to improve the quality of your home videos. But if you're still not satisfied then you can always try Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus, which pushes the envelope even further with a wide range of useful extras and technologies.
When creating a new project, for example, you can import video directly from HDV and AVCHD camcorders, video files and most video sources. But Plus also adds support for screen capture, recording the output of other software and making it available for editing.
You get access to the complete set of Movie Edit Pro video manipulation tools: automatic scene detection, trimming, image stabilisation, colour correction, a title editor and so on. But again, Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus adds more.
Secondary colour correction lets you change individual colours in a video, for instance: you could make drastic changes to the saturation of a foreground vase of flowers, say, while leaving everything else untouched,
Multi-cam editing is a very powerful feature that lets you take footage of the same scene from two camera sources and easily cut them together.
And 3D templates make it easier than ever to create quality title effects.
And the benefits of Movie Edit Pro 16 Plus are plain, everywhere you look. You get many more multimedia tracks (up to 99 from 32); support for Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound; greatly improved DVD menu design; direct export to Vimeo, as well as YouTube; and MPEG-4 support thrown in (Movie Edit Pro customers must pay an additional fee).
