MAGIX releases its first virtual reality software

MAGIX Software has announced Photostory Premium VR, its first virtual reality software. Now virtual worlds can be created in just a few steps with conventional photos and videos, and no additional hardware is required.

The release of Photostory Premium VR complements MAGIX's successful Photostory product family with a new, innovative way of editing photos and videos. The program includes an extensive set of VR functions, the full functionality of Photostory Deluxe and numerous additional effects.

Photostory Premium VR offers users various options to create interactive VR presentations. 360° photos and videos can be assembled to form professional virtual tours. Additional content such as regular photos and videos or texts can be added and edited with just a few clicks. The software also makes it possible to achieve real surround sound by adding audio files. Users who do not have an extensive collection of 360° or 3D content can also display their conventional photos and videos in one of the 3D worlds provided by the program.

No additional hardware is required to run Photostory Premium VR and create interactive VR presentations. Even an ordinary PC or laptop can realise the full potential of this new VR software. It brings a technology, which is increasingly used at trade fairs and in the real estate industry, to a completely new audience of every-day users. Photostory Premium VR also supports advanced VR hardware and fully-featured VR content that can be extensively edited.

For sharing and playing finished VR experiences MAGIX provides the free app MAGIX VR-X Player. This allows viewing on a PC or laptop, with VR glasses or with a VR headset for smartphones.

MAGIX has also announced Photostory Premium VR 365 which is a subscription service that allows users to enjoy all of the professional features of Photostory Premium VR for a low monthly fee.

MAGIX has already been working on VR projects with Intel (Alloy) and Microsoft (HoloLens). In 2017 the company acquired Dresden software firm, simplitec GmbH in order to tap into the virtual reality market. The simplitec team is now fully focused on VR development under the MAGIX management.

Depending on their requirements VR newcomers and professional producers of VR content can choose between different versions of Photostory Premium VR:

• Photostory Premium VR                       £109.99
• Photostory Premium VR 365                from £7.49 per month
• VR-X Player                                          free of charge
