MAGIX Video Pro allows you to import, edit and export 3D clips in a variety of formats.
The program can import multi-stream AVIs, Stereo3D AVIs, side-by-side content or just stereo pairs of images. Edit them to suit your needs, and they may then be exported to NVIDIA 3D Vision devices, in side-by-side formats, or even exported to Facebook as regular anaglyphs.
Effects masks are another welcome addition in this release, as they help you apply effects to a defined area of your video image. So instead of applying standard full-screen effects, you’re able to highlight a particular person, building, or anything else you like with far more subtle and creative results.
Elsewhere, new 3 and 4-point cut options simplify the process of inserting video clips into your timeline. Menu templates may be exported as PSD files for fine-tuning in an external graphics program. And of course there’s the usual pile of productivity tweaks, bug fixes and assorted performance enhancements, which now include support for GPU acceleration to speed up the process of Stereo3D combining.
The price for all this is a decidedly high-end $550, but does come packed with features, and the new effects masks in particular give you far more control over your finished movies. It’s a powerful upgrade, and if you’re interested in exploring it for yourself then a trial version is available now.
