Top customer reviews
I had used, and enjoyed using, the Sony Movie Studio software for years and in various versions. So, I was looking forward to Movie Studio 13 Platinum, which I purchased on 8 July 2016, to help me get the most out of HD/Dolby 5.1 videos from a new Sony Videocam I recently purchased. In particular, I was looking to making HD Blu-ray discs on my computer (Dell XP-9000 series with Windows 10).
I installed the software for both Movie Studio and DVD Architect Studio, and activated them (with online connection) with the activation codes provided. Software started fine, and worked well for making DVDs, but repeatedly stopped when rendering the Blu-Ray, providing an error message that it could not find a necessary file.
So, I went to the Sony online site for help. Here is where the drama starts. I entered all the necessary information into the Sony tech help window, including a lengthy description of the problem. Only after I did all that, and clicked to submit the help request, did the message appear in response that Sony no longer answers tech requests for this software. A link sends one to the news release that shows that they sold this and other Sony software products to Magix on 20 May 2016. (If you missed the earlier Sony email about their selling the software to Magix, like I did, then this was news.)
So, following links, I got to the Magix site, and registered there. They sent a welcoming message. Then I signed in to the Magix site and tried (underscore "tried") to send them the same tech help request I had described earlier to Sony. It turns out they do not have my Sony Movie Studio registered with them. Apparently that activation information did not transfer from Sony to Magix. The kicker is that you cannot describe a software problem to them unless you have the software registered with them. So, I went to the part of the site where you register a product. They ask for the product's serial number, and I entered (and re-entered) the only number I had: The activation code. The Magix site did not recognize the code as being one of their products.
There does not seem to be a way to contact Magix about this even more basic problem (I believe they are in Germany). Their web site, while quite modern in design, I personally find to be not user friendly if you have a request such as mine. I did return to the tech support request page. Recall that you cannot narrate the problem without having the product registered, but it turns out you can send what must be a blank request for assistance. That was four days ago (the site responds that they try to respond within two days), but to date I have not received any contacts from Magix, including any recognition that I sent an assistance request at all.
If you need tech help on this product now, good luck. If someone has navigated this technical customer service morass with the new company successfully, I'd appreciate a map of how you did it. Meanwhile, if there is some other software that works well for my purposes, and has good customer service (Sony's was quite good), please let me know.
Sony Vegas has no doubt the best user interface in the market. So since my last version was 11 I bought 13 without even checking the trial version.
What a mistake.
Sony Movie 13 improves few things indeed. But what it does with user interface is simply shameful. For some reason it was designed for... touch screens. How could anyone think this is a good idea is beyond me. Who on earth would want to edit movies with his fingers? Editing movies, even simple ones, requires precision. And nothing does the job better and faster than a simple mouse.
So, to fulfill the task, in Sony Movie Studio 13 all elements of UI are unnecessarily huge. Really, they are gigantic. As if it was designed for visually challenged old-timers, although excessive use of colors makes you rather think of a kinder garden. Therefore moving around a short clip in the project is way more difficult than it was, because little icons sitting on the clips are no longer little. They get in your way, so you have to zoom all the time to make everything quite big. I mean, who designed that? What were they thinking? It's a mystery.
What used to be simple click-and-drag (for example quick fade-in / fade-out) requires several mouse clicks now. There used to be one universal tool you could do anything with - now you have four of them. You have to switch between them during editing, which takes time and is annoying. There are several little annoying things like that, so altogether if the editing a movie in Sony Vegas 11 took 20 minutes, in Sony Vegas 13 it takes 30.
Well, maybe I could live with that. But why why should I if I can do everything faster with older version?
And to top it all there is a real deal-breaker: a gameplay project I recently edited kept crashing in the middle of rendering, no matter how I rendered it. After several wasted hours I switched back to Vegas 11 - and it worked fine! So to me version 13 is not an upgrade. It is downgrade.
Sony Vegas software used to be the best video editor on the market for both home and professional usage. Until version 12. In 13 it all has been suddenly changed from a tool into a toy.
Unless you want to edit your films with your fingers on your touch screen (I don't know anybody who would) stay away from version 13. Instead buy excellent Vegas 11 or 12 or look around for the competition.
