it helps to ask an actual question. otherwise, we don't know what you want us to say.

Such a program does not exist. At the very least you must edit with editable codecs in almost anything worth mentioning.

Get the trial and see yourself. I found it difficult to use, but I'm biased because I'm used to the workflow of the AIST programs which is completly different to the Magix workflow. Make sure to backup your system before installing the trial of Magix in case you want to remove it. Not only that the uninstall routine is crap, it leaves some registry entries which resists deletion with the registry editor.

Magix is pretty cheap, usually at $50. (Especially now as Best Buy has a sale on it this week, and it's cheaper if you buy it with tax software, dunno why...) It has a decent amount of tracks to lay audio and video on (16). It is fairly robust (I think I froze it once in 2 years). And it can allow you to do some neat things if you have the patience to invest in it. Built-in effects are kinda weak (as it is for many programs). But it seems to take a lot of different types of files as input without complaining (AVI including XviD, MPG, VOB, WMV, and more, which is good and bad). And it does a decent job of exporting your finished video in a variety of different formats without the need for exporting uncompressed or lossless first, then using VDub/Mod for final (XviD) compression (although I rarely use it, the XviD output actually works, unlike other programs).

I've downloaded the trial version a while back and I though it was ok but I didn't get to use it that much and thanks I'm really thinking I should buy it now espically with Best Buys sale on it lol

That's because the US-version is released months after the German version. So all the bugs are fixed the German audience has to fight with.

Even if a program is capable to do this, it's still better to create a lossless master. It's easier to generate different versions of the AMV from a masterfile than to render the project every time. And if you use VDM for final compression, you can choose the resizing method. And for me is a lossless master not even an additional step since I use lossless files to judge my results (thanks smart rendering it's the fastest way to export), and so the last testversion is the master. :wink:

While we're wishing for the impossible, I'd like a time machine and peace on earth as well as death to the MPAA and RIAA.

More seriously, Magix is a plenty capable program. It's can pull off quite a few effects, provided that you're willing to construct them. It's not going to be all point-and-drool, so if that's what you want, go elsewhere now. It can take a decent variety of input formats, but there are damn good technical reasons why you don't want to be sticking XviD fansubs into a video editing program. It's fairly simple, but power comes at the price of complexity. Programs that are very simple to use and very powerful really aren't reasonable to expect.

Well thats true its just most of the programs I've tried out have a reasonable enough learning curve but there about 2 or 3 I've come across where thehassle wasn't worth the end result. I used Magix trai lversion a few months ago and it was nothing complicated so that why I thought about getting it. About the point of the FX in Magix being time consuming thats just fine with me I don't care how long it takes I 'll work forever till its just right.

Magix is a half ass program

I recommand something that has full Pro functions like Adobe products, Avid, Ulead etc

KonoE Studio, I will not give good ops because you put in effort. Quality in terms of artistic touch is what I look for.
