The hobby video editing program Magix Movie Edit Pro has received its annual update. New in the 2022 version is the INFUSION Engine 3, which accelerates the export with current graphics cards from Intel, NVIDIA and AMD for the first time -- the output is supposed to be faster than in real time, but of course it depends on the project and the hardware. Longer projects with many effects should also play smoothly without rendering thanks to the new engine. Also added is multi-GPU support; those with multiple graphics cards in the system can assign them different tasks.
For travel movies, new visualization options have been added in MAGIX Travel Maps (only in Plus and Premium). For example, personalized map views can be created with rotations or tilts, and elevation data from imported GPX files can also be displayed. For fly-in animations, you only need to specify the angle at which the animation should start and its length, and the software does the rest automatically. Also new to Travel Maps is a full-screen editing mode, a redesigned menu, a constant playback speed between waypoints and an export in up to 4K resolution (MP4).
Those who need picture-in-picture compositions, video collage, or customized split screens will find new controls to adjust the position and size of video objects in the image, as well as a new, lexible anchor point over which dynamic movements can be easily animated.
The Storyboard has also seen some changes. Audio clips can now be edited with precision, and the preview images have become larger.
Exclusive to the Premium version is NewBlue Stylizers 5 Illuminate, for adding atmospheric lighting effects to videos: Over 100 templates are available, including glow & neon effects, simulations of candle flicker or light rays, metallic effects, and more. The templates can also be optionally customized.
Movie Edit Pro 2022 is available in product versions 365 (69.99 EUR), Plus 365 (99.99 EUR) and Premium 365 (129.00 EUR), all of which can also be subscribed to.
