I wanted to add a review to balance the only one present here. I have been using video editing & composition software for almost a decade now, including the evolving and highly overrated, if rated at all, Adobe Premiere and also the similarly evolving Sony Vegas and increasingly useless Pinnacle Studio. The Magix software offers rather more than any of these pieces of software and generally at a much lower price. I won't just repeat the list of functions in the product description, but suffice to say that there are many functions and facilities in the software which are lacking in much more expensive video software and also everything that is in there actually works quite effectively and without frequent crashing (Pinnacle! <spit>) and enigmatic pauses and silences (Vegas 9). Version 16 even renders AVC video better than Vegas Movie Studio 9, which is quite something considering that Sony is the co-developer of this format. I can't rate it highly enough. Buy it, explore it and see how much is included for the price. Having just purchased a copy of Sony Studio 10 and found it less stable and useful than 9, Magix seems even more of a good buy.
