In 2021 MAGIX, the well-known German development house took over some of Sony software offerings including VEGAS Movie Studio 14 Platinum product which is the subject of this next review. This new addition to the MAGIX product portfolio consists of four main elements. Along with the title offering of VEGAS Movie Studio 14, you get NewBlue VEGAS Movie Studio 14 Platinum, DVD Architected and Music Maker. Each application is installed in turn. I must admit to being slightly surprised that MAGIX had taken the decision to retain the original installations for the VEGAS offerings rather than use the installation routine used for the rest of its software titles such as its own Music Maker offering. Whether it was to blame or not, this combination of installation routine turned out to be rather time consuming process. Icons are placed on the desktop for VEGAS Movie Studio and Music Maker.
Review: MAGIX VEGAS Movie Studio
Those who have access to a Hi-DPI monitor will be pleased to hear than support has been added to VEGAS Movie Studio for this type of display. You can now upload completed movies direct to various social media sites for sharing with others. Providing you have an appropriate account, you can upload content to Vimeo, Facebook and YouTube thus allowing others to appreciate your work. As well as uploading content, you can create DVD and Blu-ray disks. Tools are available to add controls to play/pause, navigate menus plus add surround sound and impressive titles.
