From the Sound Stage to Your Living Room and Back -- Video Gets Around: The New MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- Trends like "high definition" and "Dolby® Digital" indicate that the layman is also interested in professional equipment. Industry-level tools and ease of use can be concepts at odds with each other, but as MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12 shows, it doesn't always have to be that way. The video editing program, available in stores from March 1, has countless cream-of-the-crop technology features. For just $59.99 you get a program that supports videos with Dolby® Digital Sound (2.0 Stereo and 5.1 Surround) and provides your home movies with that professional kick thanks to effects such as magnetic objects, new intros and outros, and menus sorted by theme. It holds its own in line with professional technology, as the following examples illustrate.

... for HD DVD: You can save on camera settings by using HD recordings. Thanks to the high resolution of the material, camera and focusing movements can be set directly on the computer using MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12. The program even supports High Definition videos without a glitch.

... for Dolby® Digital: Videos with Dolby® Digital sound (2.0 Stereo and 5.1 Surround) can be edited with MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12 and burned to disc without any recalculations (Smart Rendering). The original audio format remains fully intact. This saves time, when archiving non-copy-protected DVDs, TV recordings made with DVB receivers, or material from a DVD camcorder in original format.

... for realtime burning of analog recordings: Material from various analog sources can be burned to video DVDs in realtime using the program -- simply burn your favorite sitcom to disc using your TV card. Transfer movies from analog camcorders, DVD players or VHS recorders in one fell swoop onto DVD and view the results straight away on any DVD player.

... for your own personal soundtrack: The Soundtrack Maker, integrated into MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 12, automatically creates background music that fits the themes and moods of your home videos. The music can be effortlessly adjusted to accommodate the end of a scene, or a sudden change of pace can be musically stressed. Simply select a style -- anything from classical to energetic to relaxed -- and with just a few mouse clicks the music follows the tension curve of the scene playing on your screen. Only the right music brings the audible touch of life to your videos.
