.. hey, I have nothing against AiST nor Magix MEP's -- don't get me wrong!
Magix, Vegas, Asymetrix, CyberLinks .. these are all Frame Accurate! .. Avid, AVC, ArcSoft, AiST, Adobe
.. ... ....
. .. ... actually, its the Frame Accuracy part that's doing the damage here!
( example: [ i.e. ]) A question was raised in our Specail Effect's
Section not to long ago.
It was BASED on a little slight-of-hand home-made-transition. This, in itself, is part of the problem!
The Effect's are FRAME RELATED SEQUENCES and THAT'S what's killing Magix: Time Constraint Technologies!!!
( specifying the problem: )
AiST has many-many affects & effects which are internally timed for "best effect presentation."
Avid and ArcSoft also use these guidelines. AVC is still too new a company to second-guess their errors.
.. did you know that AiST & Avid products allow you to make your own transitions and effects? Nice!!! ^_________^
Adobe allows you the OPTION of mixing and matching things like After-Effects, Photo Shop and others Adobe's. T_T
Vegas has broken-away from many of their old-ways and also allow for other programs, Corel, to mix & match things. ^_^
Magix allows you to "correct things" with products made by Magix. [ sounds like Adobe so far in their logic here. ]
Magix FX ( built-in ) .. Magix Audio FX ( built-in ) .. Markers, Grouping, Transparencies and
using Corel Plug-ins .. these are all available with almost any MEP from 12 thru 17. There are
a few things that are note worthy and missing thought;
Auto Transparent Updating to the next frame with any kind of accuracy,
and having the option for SWITCH from HD to SD and still access the entire HD section your working with.
( conclusion: )
.. Magix "IS" the easiest Video Editing System available today.
( it even puts CyberLinks Directors & Producers to shame. )
.. What it doesn't have are the Basic's needed to stay competitive in todays market. And THAT's why we avoid it; its out-dated!
