This is a repeat to what I wrote last fall. I made the mistake of trying to use this crappy software again to edit a 3D video. WHOPPER mistake. Found more bugs in it again. Another night wasted with this terrible software.
MAGIX is software that one really wants to like – but I must again STRONGLY RECOMMEND AGAINST PURCHASING AND USING MAGIX MOVIE EDIT PRO FOR 3D EDITING.
Once again: Magix Movie Edit Pro 2013 NOT RECOMMENDED for 3D video editing | 3d.coldstreams.com.
I will be deleting Magix Movie Edit Pro from my computer after this – likely the first time I have ever deleted a large software package due to so many defects. It is astounding the company took a good product (version 17) and ruined it, and has failed to fix serious defects as we come up on 2 years since its release. I am not the only one who reported the defects to them.
I once lost 40 hours of work due to Magix Movie Edit Pro defects; at this point, Magix is history. I will never use it again.

To play in 4K 3D, select your 3D options from the gear icon, and select the 1440 HD or 2160 4K speed settings for maximum image quality. Even on a 2K (standard) 1920×1080 monitor, the video looks far better than typical Youtube 3D video.

I was testing an E-PM2 and used a Hoya close up filter (handheld as it was the wrong filter diameter) to test the camera’s close up ability using the kit 14-42mm lens. The E-PM2 is economical and is shooting better photos than my GH-2. Now, I won’t give up my GH-2 but I am impressed!
These were taken using P mode and all camera default settings, output to JPEG, not RAW. Beautiful color rendition. The camera turns on and focuses very fast. I have not yet tested the video capabilities of the E-PM2.
The E-PM2 does not include an eye viewfinder but the VF2 is available separately from Olympus to add a viewfinder. I have one for a different Olympus camera and it works fine for my uses.
I was at an event this past weekend where there were several people lugging their very large well known brand name cameras with equally very large telephoto lenses. I am so glad I shoot micro four thirds and travel light!
