You may want to do some browsing at www.videohelp.com. Magix edit pro is liked by some, but is not considered to be a prosumer or professional type editing software. I would put Ulead Studio 11, above magix edit pro. But as with any software, there are good and bad features for each. A lot of it boils down to what source material you are working with.
For example Adobe Premiere, and Vegas Video, and two of the top softwares, yet neither is the best with working with MPEG2 as a source. But for working with AVI or DV-AVI, both are hard to beat… Womble MPEG is one of the best MPEG2 editing softwares, and there are a few others who are getting good at working with mpeg2. But I personally would not use them for AVI or DV-AVI.
As with anything, you need to know what your intended source will be, what you want to do with the source, and your intended output. By using this formula, the software that works best for you, may not be the one which works best for me.
There are quite a few folks here, who are very good converting video to dvd. But it seems that we all do it a little bit differently. That doesn’t mean that one of us is better than the others. We just have different approaches, and have different requirements of our input/output files…
