3.0 out of 5 stars IT MUST BE ME....., 11 Jan 2011
This review is from: Magix Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus with 3D Compatibility (PC) (DVD-ROM)
I cannot damn a product just because I have problems with it, that would be unfair and I would be behaving as others do. I will bet this software is brilliant if you can master the first step. No criticism intended but I have no doubt there are conventions within this software that others are used to, no doubt they are thrilled at the results.

FOR ME there is a problem though. Mostly to do with the small but thick manual. The program installs beautifully, looks great but there my confidence stalls.
However I load a project the thumbnails are tiny and I seem only able to see around one line of images. Where the others are I don't know. I go to the manual and for me too much is taken for granted by the writers. If there is a guide I cannot see it or it is not easy to comprehend. I can get further with that awful PINNACLE software.

I bought this software after being exhilerated by the quality of the MAGIX audio cleaning lab which is unbelievably intuitive and gently encourages creativity.... highly recommended by this idiot; wonderful results.

I am still looking at and trying just to get something on the screen and to work on. That to me is the big problem. Very frustrating! A 1.2.3 or more step simple getting started guide and perhaps a little more acknowledgment that some people need a little more help than others; otherwise they will just put it away.

So my star rating is more to do with the manual than the software.

If you know what your doing, fill yer boots if not........................
