Bing []says:

"Rotate/mirror effect produces the error "Encountered an improper argument", then this whole tab effects. What do I do?"


I've never seen this error. To help further, assuming bing is translating well enough, it would help to know which program and version you are using and exactly what object (clip or image file format) you are trying to rotate/mirror.

Also the translation to the phrase 'this whole tab' is confusing me. Do you mean an entire numbered track?




Я никогда не видел эту ошибку. Чтобы помочь дальше, если предположить, что Бинг перевод достаточно хорошо, это помогло бы знать, какие программы и версию вы используете и точно какой объект (клип или изображение формат файла) вы пытаетесь повернуть/зеркало.

Также перевод на фразу «this whole track» смущает меня. Вы значите весь номером дорожки?

Does anybody know solution for this problem? I encounter this error for any file format (most often attempting to rotate mp4 and avi). 

Running MAGIX Video deluxe MX Plus Download Version; version number on WIndows 7, with admin privileges, with all available updates installed (both for Magix and Windows).

Other effects seem to work fine. 
This one used to work fine in the past, but started to fail, after installation of one of Magix updates.

Again, no problem here in any version of MEP I've had. Did miss out on MX and am now up to 2014 version One suggestion is to download the free trial of the latest and see if  that can do your effects as you want. If the problem persists, perhaps you have an odd clip that is behaving badly?

cpc000cpc, thx for your  answer.

The 2014 trial works fine, tough I'm not really interested in paying another 100 EUR for a soft, which I use 1-2 times a year. I'm an amateour user, and use it only to process my personal recordings.

Today I also reinsatlled my MX version. In the clear installation effects work fine, but exporting movies fails. After installation updates, movies exprot is ok, but some effects (in particular - rotation) fail.

And it seems, that there has been no update for some longer time released. Is this version alreadey abandoned? I think it's yet too early to do so...

Only a user like you, so I've no idea how the folk at Magix decide on new releases. The usual pattern is a new version each year with one or more updates in between. I don't recall seeing an update for any version other than the current one. Unfortunate that the MX fix introduced a new bug.

One suggestion you might consider is picking up a cheap older version say on e-bay and have that available just for rotations. Awkward yes, but better than nothing. I just looked and there are listings for the newer MEP 2013 (standard not Plus or Premium) for as low as 16 EUR!
