Suite trial after Premium

BACKBONE_Empire wrote on 4/28/2019, 6:38 PM

Hi, I tried the premium trial and it crashed on me before I could render my movie. I have the project saved yet cannot recover because my trial ran out. Now I want to get the trial for suite or Some way to recover my project into another Version. For some reason when I install the Suite it says I already used it which I have not.

The Suite contains the same VMS Platinum (there is no Premium) as the Platinum trial, plus a few extras. So probably yes you unfortunately have already used up your trial period on the editing part of the Suite.

That cannot never be a problem for a project in a trial version, because such a video has to be less than 2 minutes. To me it looks no problemen to make it again.

@BACKBONE_Empire I'll take a shot at this.....

There are 3 packages available of Movie Studio 16 (as in previous versions). In order of price lowest to highest, VEGAS Movie Studio 16 (which is often referred to on these forums as the 'Basic'), VEGAS Movie Studio Platinum, and VEGAS Movie Studio Suite.

These 3 can be broken down into 2 different editions of Movie Studio core program. The basic edition VEGAS Movie Studio 16, and VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Platinum. VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Suite include the core program VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Platinum as well as a bunch of add-on's that the other two editions do not include and therefore it is referred to as a Suite and reasonably cost more, because you get more.

There are feature and function in VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Platinum that is not included in the basic edition VEGAS Movie Studio 16 (see this link for a comparison of the 3 edition products... https://www.vegascreativesoftware.com/us/sem/vegas-movie-studio/product-comparison/#productMenu)

The trial version of VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Platinum is the same as the trial version of VEGAS Movie Studio 16 Suite, therefore when your Platinum trial expires, so does the Suite trial expire, because you have had the same program to try. All the trials have the full features and functions with the only limitation being the length of the project render file has to be 2 minutes or less.

If you purchase either the Platinum or Suite editions, the project you have started in the trial version will load and you can continue your project.

I hope this explanation helps, although it could possibly add more confusion!!! I'm not a fan of how Magix names the products, but I'm sure it is a marketing thing. And, it pretty much all started when Sony owned the product and when Magix bought the Movie Studio and Vegas Pro line of products they continued with what in my opinion is confusing names and packages and has actually made it a bit worse.

Good this is, the naming and marking has no effect on the function of Movie Studio 16, it is a great little NLE program. And, I would add my recommendation is to not purchase the basic edition, rather the Platinum or Suite, which are full feature and function editions.

Actually i spent about 12 hours learning where and how to create Title-ing effect with keyframes and i Recorded directly to the project. add in the Minute adjustments for timing and transition creations. i spent a long time on it. and DUE to the 2-Minute render LIMIT I was Rendering in Portions and it crashed. When are they going to Give out Actual "DAY" trials. In order to git familiar with and Develope Assets, then piece things together. ussually only 20-40 hours were used

and trial counts days you don't even touch it :(

yea i git it after i carefully tried to use my time wisely because either way the extras have a trial or are not even unlocked in the first place and you have to pay. i Would gladly pay for Vegas Pro after my labors paid off using the tool. That's the idea of a Trial, isn't it? am i right remember it's to have a first times check out the results.. I would Rather have Watermarks or Sound Ciphering so in this case when i only used the program a few days and lost all the rest i could of Received the Funding for it's Value. Yet of course. these other Slanted versions are JUNK and they seem to remove simplicity or add complicated Interfacing just to waste your time. yet, whatever that's the struggle. to do with out the ability to - .,;'"the"';,.

You trialled Movie Studio so you could try downloading the Pro trial to give you another 30 days to play. Your VMS project files should open in it, but not the other way around. As for the extras I'm not sure whether they are available in trial versions. They are third party products and there could be licensing complications.

A trial is to see if a software fullfils your needs and expectations, not for practicing or producing.

If my memory serves correctly, Sony used to place a watermark every so often in a render for longer videos. This was back around vp13, and then sometime around vp14/15 Magix placed the limit on render time. I would imagine the marketing and sale departments felt an unlimited timeline version permitted users to test the trial adequately over a 30 day trial version and the render limit was encouragement to purchase.

I think it is fair and adequate, but personally feel they should put it upfront somewhere in the trial download process of the render length limitation. Just my opinion.
