Movie Studio Platinum 13, compatible with Windows 11???

Former user wrote on 2/28/2022, 8:26 PM

I have a computer with Windows 10 and I use Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13 (64 bit). I am getting a new computer in a few days with Windows 11.

Two Questions: Will Movie Studio Platinum 13 work with Windows 11? and If not and I upgrade to something that does work on Windows 11, will my Movie Studio 13 files/ templates work on new software?

Using the forum's search function, I couldn't find any comments about MSP13 and Windows 11, so you may the first person to let the forum know as to whether it does work or not when you soon try it out on your new computer.

MSP17 is reported as working on Windows 11 as per: https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/vegas-movie-studio-and-windows-11--134122/

If it doesn't work satisfactorily, please be aware that the Movie Studio product line was discontinued in July last year and has been replaced by a completley new product now called Movie Studio: https://www.magix.com/us/video-editor/movie-studio/ Any questions you may have about this new product should be directed to MAGIX's video forum at: https://www.magix.info/us/video-forum/

However, there is a trial version that you might want to take advantage of to test it out.

An alternative is to upgrade to Vegas Pro 19 - https://www.vegascreativesoftware.com/us/vegas-edit/ - as Vegas Pro should be able to import your existing MSP13 projects and files which is something that is unlikely with Movie Studio. Again, it would be best to first get the trial version of Vegas Pro to test it out for yourself. It would also be a good idea to check the specifications for Vegas Pro to ensure that your computer meets the minimum recommended specs fopr Vegas Pro 19 - there are different minimum recommended specs for HD and for 4K.

I finally got my Windows 11 computer set up. Best Buy installed Movie Studio Platinum 13, The latest build 987. It seems to work ok, with just a few bugs. I am going to try a free trial of Vegas Pro or Magix, next weekend and see if it is any better.

My MSP13 is bought and paid for so it works, with only minor issues. So if the Magix or Vegas Pro isn't a huge upgrade/ improvement, I will likely stick with what I have.

Thank you for the links.

Forgive me. Not sure if this is proper place to post question about movie studio platinum 13. Instagram wants MP4 in either 4:5 or 9:16 ratio. I know nothing about these sizes (I get confused. Is an aspect ratio of 4:5 the same thing as 1080 x 1350?? Can there be an equivalent? I have no idea what these numbers mean. I feel like I've been planted in a country w a foreign language). ALSO, In movie studio I can go to "properties" and maybe choose as aspect ratio of "X". Yet , when I go to render as MP4 under "Make Movie" it says it is going to render at 1080 x 1920. Which is taking control. If I set in properties to be 1080 x 1350, Will "Making Movie" that says it is a different number going to be THAT number? Forgive me if I'm not clear. Just really brain fried. Thanks

@paul-adams Hi, you're better off posting this as a new post, you'll get better feedback that way, maybe a moderator will move it,

Set the render settings to the same as the project settings, then you should get a rendered out video that looks like it did on the preview screen, you see a preview while it renders so if it doesn't look right click cancel & fix the problem.

These aspect ratios are always Width X then Height Y, there's many but 16:9 is your normal Landscape mode, 9:16 is Portrait mode, set your Project to the aspect ratio you want, if your video is made with the phone vertically it's probably portrait mode, if your phone was horizontal when filming it's landscape mode, when you import your video it will ask you if you want to make the project match your media, normally you would click Yes unless you have already set the project to a desired size, 1080 x 1350 for eg. , then when you come to render your video those sizes & aspect ratios will be auto applied to the render settings, if the screen doesn't look right or the resulting rendered video is wrong unfortunately you have a little learning & experimentation to do, There's many people on here who are willing to help tho & there are quite a few Tutorials at the top of the forum to help get you started https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/tutorials/

I stole this image from Google 😊👍

Ps. there's a free Aspect ratio calculator online you can play with to help learn & create your project settings 👍

https://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/aspect_ratio/

Try thinking of 4:5 or 16:9 as units on a sq graph paper, 4:5 = 4 squares across & 5 squares up, 16:9 = 16 squares across & 9 squares up, You can then see how it works with the size, 16:9 1920 x 1080, 1920 ÷ 16 = 120, 1080 ÷ 9 = 120, so they're both 120 & so square, 4:5 1080 x 1350 works out at a different size, 1080 ÷ 4 = 270, 1350 ÷ 5 = 270, but the both are 270 so square.

maybe a moderator will move it,

Unfortunately Mods cannot move individual posts, only entire threads.

Actually I've just realised Paul already has a thread on his problem https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/rendering-video-in-movie-studio-13-platinum--134732/

It appears to be solved.
