Announced as great for social media users, the new Movie Edit Pro 2021, from MAGIX, features intuitive operation and an impressive range of specialist tools. Is this the future of video editing?
Video editing apps are getting more sophisticated, and the use of AI promises, as we’ve seen in recently months, to open new horizons, even if not all AI is created equal. The truth is that video editing, as is the case with many other apps, as changed drastically in recent years, as well as the platforms where it is available. One could not imagine, years ago, that NLEs would make it to smartphones, but there is, now, a series of NLEs available for both Android and iOS, revealing a growing interest for video editing tools uses beyond regular desktop and portable computers.
Smartphones also introduced vertical videos, looked as something strange initially but now accepted as another way to show moving images. NLEs had to include options for editing vertical videos, and Movie Edit Pro 2021 does include that option. When videos filmed in portrait mode are imported from a smartphone, the software automatically identifies the alignment and rotates the video to the correct position. Project templates are included and offer the right page formats for popular social media portals, which usually display either vertical or square videos.
A beginner-friendly NLE
Movie Edit Pro may be a beginner-friendly video editing software, but MAGIX claims that “with its advanced technology and comprehensive range of functions, Movie Edit Pro is great for users of all skill levels and is ideal for gamers and social media users too.” Features like the new Infusion Engine 2, 8K UHD support, HiDPI or NewBlue Filters 5 Ultimate contribute to make the app, as MAGIX says, “The video editor for beginners and advanced users.”
“Movie Edit Pro 2021 embodies our vision for the future of video editing. The program’s new INFUSION Engine 2 offers native decoding support for Intel, NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards and represents a huge advance in performance, with 8k video editing now possible in realtime. Combined with a razor-sharp HiDPI program interface for 4k displays and improved support for vertical videos and social media formats, with Movie Edit Pro 2021, the future of video editing is now.” says Florian Liepold, Product Owner Video at MAGIX.
