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.

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. El Capitan (10.11) or later is strongly recommended.*

Our privacy policy

Your privacy and security are extremely important to us. We are simply not interested in tracking you or spamming you in any way, shape, or form. Magic has absolutely no advertisements or third-party apps of any kind (spyware, bloatware, etc.). Nothing is installed on your system that runs in the background, and no personal information is collected at any time. The setup file downloads are digitally signed with certificates from Apple (for the Mac version) and GlobalSign (for the PC version); please do not continue with the installation if the certificate is not valid or if the publisher is not verified. Also note that we don't collect any payment information from you until you purchase a license key, and we never share your e-mail address or your other contact information with anyone else, ever. We're not interested in selling your data; we just want to deliver enjoyable and useful software to you. If at any point you decide not to continue using Magic, it can be easily and cleanly uninstalled from your system. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all, or visit our forums to see what our many satisfied users are saying.
