Basic Video Editing
Most trimming in Magix is done right on the timeline, with a razor icon for splitting the current track, which can be switched to Remove Start, Remove End,” or Split Movie (to split all tracks at the same point). For more precise edits, the Edit trimmer lets you fine-tune a transition between clips, and the Object Trimmer window lets you do so for the start and end of a single clip. The dialog for both these activities is fairly complex, with three panels and no fewer than 25 control buttons, but I can see how, after you get accustomed to it, it could be useful.

Magix Movie Edit Pro’s motion tracking lets an object follow something that moves around the screen in your video clip. You can use an overlay, such as text, or an effect, such as blur. Tracking is often used to obfuscate license plates or body parts. Magix uses the term Object Tracking for this.
Fancy Movie Effects
Titles. Title templates included in Movie Edit Pro are categorized by their use; for example: intro/outro, caption, and subtitles. The upper two editions of Movie Edit Pro also include animated titles from NewBlue. There are 39 title animations, and you can apply simple horizontal and vertical animation to any text you add. There aren’t, however, 3D titles like you get with Apple’s Final Cut Pro X.at iTunes Store

Effects. Movie Edit Pro’s Effects panel offers an Artistic filter, with controls for Erosion, Dilate, Emboss, Substitution (for colors), Quantize, Colorize, and Contour. You can get some pretty zany looks with these. The Distortion tool offers Whirlpool, Fisheye, and Kaliedoscope effects, among others, all of which you can combine into one unrecognizable vision.
3D Editing. The third dimension has fallen out of favor lately, but Magix lets you easily import 3D footage and apply 3D titles and effects. You can adjust vertical and horizontal alignment. The program supports anaglyph and interlaced 3D.
Movie Edit Pro can display the waveform for each clip in the timeline, and a full mixer pops up when you click its icon on the top-right corner of the timeline. A full-fledged sound editor, Magix Music Editor, can clean audio and apply noise reduction, equalizing, compression, and stereo FX. It’s pretty advanced, letting you choose a noise sample, optimize for voice, de-hiss, and remove camera noise. It also lets you convert older media, such as LPs, to digital.
Output and Sharing
Movie Edit Pro offers a lot of good output options, including direct uploading to Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo from the Share menu. You can also send creations to anyone with Send Anywhere; this gets you a code to send to anyone. You can choose private or public viewing. As your movie uploads, a progress bar crawls across the bottom of the screen and shows time remaining. I like that it even lets you create HTML viewer code for your video that you can put on a website.
I tested rendering time by creating a movie consisting of four clips of mixed types (some 1080p, some SD, some 4K) with a standard set of transitions and rendered it to MPEG-4 full HD at 15Mbps, H.264 High Profile. Audio was MPEG AAC Audio: 192 Kbps. I tested on an Asus Zen AiO Pro Z240IC running 64-bit Windows 10 Home and sporting a 4K display, 16GB RAM, a quad-core Intel Core i7-6700T CPU, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M discrete graphics card.
