I appreciate the details in this article. However, it seems that Magix has dropped DVD Architect from their latest suite of products (version 18). According to the post below, it is no longer in “continued active development”, and haven’t implemented any new features in 4 years. Things like 64-bit, UHD support, etc. would require too many resources with too little ROI. Magix will still sell you a copy, but you need to contact them directly–there is no mention of DVD Architect on either the Magix or Vegas websites. Post below was active 7 Aug 2020.



I guess that Edius Pro X (or previous versions) might be a good alternative to the Vegas suites from Magix (previous Sony).

When I read the n ews back then that Sony sold the software to Magix, I alreaddy worried about the quality and future of the products. I should have bought the latest Sony suite right then, but didn’t.

Never liked Magix because the software is crashing regularry and – at least for me – doesn’t feel intuitive. Didn’t try the Vegas suite anymore as I also have the Edius Neo (home edition) and figuring it’s better to upgrade that one in the near future.


Also, there are open source alternatives that are doing the best they can to get up there with the pro software.
