50 things to do before you are 11 3/4 video thanks to MAGIX

Recently I have been a little behind on the blog, many apologies for this. I have been involved in an amazing project for the National Trust and the 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4. The girls and I have been undertaking the list for some time now and after meeting with the National Trust we decided to come up with an idea to promote the list. The idea was to create a video.

Myself and Lisa (Hollybobbs) set out on a search to find 50 bloggers to help us undertake the video. Each blogger took one activity and filmed the activity before sending it to myself for editing. I then had the challenge of editing together all 50 videos to make one video.

Magix Edit video


For the editing I used MAGIX movie edit pro. The software is packed full of features. It allowed me to edit each of the 50 videos to create short clips. I could then add each of these clips together and move them around to position correctly within the video. I was very impressed with how easy the software was to use and it was great that there was also the option of help 'how to videos' if I needed them. Finally I added captions to each clip along with scrolling credits at the end.

MAGIX movie edit pro has so many more features that I did not use, such as altering camera angles and adding multiple videos together. It is such a powerful piece of software and great for anyone who wants to do any video editing.

The final video for the National Trust, which I am rather happy with, is



As an extra bonus I have a copy of MAGIX movie edit pro to giveaway. The software normal retails at £79.99 and was fantastic for creating the video for the National Trust. To be in with a chance of winning follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter and good luck. Giveaway ends midnight on 1st December 2013.  Magix regularly run competition over on their Facebook page too.
