Download Magic Demo
If you are new to Magic, please click on a button below to download the Magic Demo v2.1 (31 Aug 2017). The Demo is completely free and requires no registration.
The Demo contains almost all the functionality of the full Performer edition. The main limitations are that saving is disabled, and a watermark will appear on the output after 30 days.
PC Setup (Windows)
Windows 7 or later is required.
The 64-bit version allows more memory to be used, resulting in better performance for large projects. The 32-bit version has better compatibility with older hardware and software. Both versions can be installed simultaneously.
Mac Setup (OSX/macOS)
Snow Leopard (10.6) or later is required.*
The 64-bit and 32-bit versions are installed together; either can be used.
* Lion (10.7) or later is required for exporting .mp4 movies.
