Hi

. . . . Any tool in Hitfilm I use puts big hexagons on the video frame that persist on playback . . .

IIRC you have to activate/register the Hitfilm plugins - however the popup is sometimes hidden under the MEP interface.

Was not getting any popup. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Had to do a few dance moves to install msi as administrator. The install popped up Hitfilm's activation dialog. Seems to work now. Thanks.

Greetings,

MEP 2019 (latest version) has that option. I think this is what you mean.

Would you recommend 2019 Premium over Plus? If so, why?

Hi

. . . . Would you recommend 2019 Premium over Plus? If so, why? . . .

Plus is the minimum you should get, however I would recommend you check out the comparison chart here - the final decision is yours.

The main difference between Plus and Premium is the 3 extra Plugins available ie

  • MotionStudios Vasco da Gama 11 Essential
  • proDAD VitaScene V3 LE
  • HitFilm Ignite Color: Cine (MAGIX edition)

The second recommendation I would make is to be careful selecting which add-ons you require - when you enter the Store there should be a set of 'already paid for' addons to download, then look at what extras you may use occasionally.

Hi,

I don't see HitFilm Movie Essentials Pack being offered with anything right now. I purchased it through the Store when there was a sale. It all depends on what is being offered when you upgrade (renew) or purchase.

Hi

The Hitfilm plugin set currently on offer ( for 2 1/2 more days from now) is the Ignite Color set.

I have read that Movie Edit Pro 2018 Premium has the option to allow you to adjust video colour temperature, however, does Movie Edit Pro 2019 have this as well?

According to the Hitfilm website - yes.

Added: According to the Magix website there is no mention of Colour Temperature - looks more like specific effects.

Under the new update system, I doubt if you can get MEP 2018 now, it having being replaced by 2019 with extra features etc.

Is it possible there is a hard copy via say Amazon or a computer store that may have it? Or would it prompt to update to the latest version on install?

Yes, but does 2019 Premium also include the colour temperature feature?

CubeAce wrote on 1/29/2019, 1:19 AM

@jak.willis

Mine does because my copy is an update from my 2018 package.

If I had bought it when the 2019 version came out then I wouldn't have.

If you buy MEP or whatever version you get whatever effects are shown in the promotion and then free updates to the main editing program for one year but not the included bundled third-party effects packages, for which you would have to choose to purchase an upgrade. Then I assume, but don't know, (I have yet to purchase an upgrade) that you would get the new third-party effects as well. Whether these replace existing effects of the old package or are added to the ones from the previous package I couldn't say as I personally haven't done this yet.

I think this is something Apollo didn't understand when he complained about the purchase structure of Magix products. That in part, you are mainly paying for the bundled third-party effects offered.

Okay, so does that mean, to ensure I get the colour temperature effect, I would need to go on to Amazon or someplace and order the 2018 version?

CubeAce wrote on 1/29/2019, 10:38 AM

@jak.willis

After looking around for a hard copy, the answer is, apparently not.

The hard copy boxes just state 'With included latest effects'. Which seems to indicate that although the Basic program is on the supplied disk, that the effects are only available as a download once the program is activated and will only install the current effects on offer and not what was originally offered with the 2018 version of MEP.

I even looked at the New Blue website and that pack must be made specifically for Magix or is no longer available for sale.
