64-bit / 32-bit
What does 64-bit mean, and is my computer suitable for it?
The following applies in general: 64-bit architecture in operating systems and processors allows more processing power to be used for software compared to 32-bit systems. This is an especially important advantage in case of video editing, where computer hardware has to process large amounts of data and execute complex computational processes. For this reason, most software from MAGIX is 64-bit for more power and speed.
In order to be able to use 64-bit software, the computer operating system must also be 64-bit. You can check which version is installed on your computer in system information settings.
Can I install 64-bit software on my 32-bit system?
No, unfortunately that won't work. 32-bit systems can operate only with 32-bit software. They're not upwardly compatible. That means that all 64-bit applications from MAGIX require a 64-bit system.
Can I install 32-bit software on my 64-bit system?
Yes, this is often possible.
What does it mean if Specifications mention nothing about either 64 or 32-bit?
MAGIX 64-bit software always carries a notice in its "Technical Specifications". If no information is found in the Specifications, this indicates a 32-bit version.
Does 64-bit mean different things for video, photo and audio products?
No, application type has no effect. All 64-bit programs have the same requirements.
Should I check that software plug-ins are also 64-bit?
Yes, the same rules apply to plug-ins. 64-bit plug-ins can only be installed on 64-bit systems. You should also ensure that the application for which the plug-in is being installed is also 64-bit.
