Once again: Magix Movie Edit Pro NOT RECOMMENDED for 3D video editing

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.

Click through for larger version on Flickr. 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!
