MacroSystem Bogart 7.1 for Microsoft Windows 7, 8, & Vista


Finally easy to use video editing software on a PC; and still the fastest editor on the planet from project start to finish! Full weddings can be done in a day, and same day wedding edits are now a breeze on a laptop!!



There are so many new features, advantages, and benefits in the new Bogart Windows 7 Software, we can only give the highlights here. The software now supports so many hardware peripherals, let's start there:

  • Of course our new Casablanca 4 Studio Pro and Studio Turn-key Video Editing Workstations are custom designed for optimal hardware performance with internal and external edit hard drives, optical disc drives, media card reader/writer, USB 3.0 in/outputs, and DV or HDV in/output board.  If your PC has some of these hardware items, they are usually recognized by our software, but you still want to make sure before you buy. That is why we have the 30-day free trial period, so you can make sure all your hardware is recognized and works well. 



  • Bogart Windows 7 SW now supports most internal CD/DVD/Blu-Ray Drives on most systems; we have successfully tested it with the external compact usb LG BP40 & LG WP40 DVD & Blu-Ray burners, and those work on our standalones, PC, MAC, and come with a nice SW suite from Cyberlink. Bogart 7 for Windows SW also supports firewire if your PC has a DV board (not many do). Our Casablanca 4 Studios have two 6-Pin Firewire in/outputs, which means you can capture DV and HDV tape; and with the optional Grass Valley ADVC-110 analog to digital video converter, you can capture Composite Video and S-Video too.
  • Our Casablanca Studio Systems both include the Bogart 7 Gold Edition with Smart Booster Technology, which combined with the latest Intel Video Quick Sync Video processor, extremely accelerates the data intensive process of Blu-ray burning and HD, UHD, and 4K file exports to all your favorite hard drives, devices, and websites.  To utilize these time saving speed tools, you need the Bogart 7 Gold Edition, and an Intel processor with Intel Quick Sync Video, like our Studio Systems have.  If you have an Intel 4th generation i3, i5, or i7 processor or higher, it should have Quick Sync. If you only do SD formats, you may not need all this processing power.
  • Not only does Bogart 7 for Windows add Full HD 60 frames per second progressive 2K editing for the first time in our line, but it also adds Ultra-HD, 4K, and 24 frames per second progressive 4K for you movie makers.  Technically, "Ultra High Definition" is a derivitive of the 4K digital cinema standard. However while your local multiplex shows images in native 4096 x 2160 4K resolution, the new Ultra HD consumer format has a slightly lower resolution of 3840 X 2160.

  • For you wedding guys, Bogart 7 Gold has a feature that would allow you to replace the photographer with over 8 Megapixel UHD video frame grabs. If you shoot Ultra HD, it is 3840 x 2160 resolution = (8.29MP). With the OPT button you can select a single frame grab, but now you can select any video scene in the clip bin, and then a few clicks later it has saved 60 Hi-Rez 8Mb jpeg stills per second. A 60 minute scene of UHD video would create (216,000) 8 megapixel jpegs automatically with a few clicks. I can think of many applications for this new feature. Any wedding party could scroll through all the photos and pick the best ones to blow up or whatever they wanted to do with them.   Bogart 7 and the new Quick Photo SW supports this high resolution, so you can really annimate a large zoom in without losing picture clarity.               

  • Imports are vastly improved too. In the past if you didn’t know what format the video was shot in, and set the project to the wrong format, when importing it would say “Slow Scaling”. This meant your video was being converted very slowly to your project setting format. With the new Bogart 7 SW Import menu, it will tell you have a mismatch, and give you an oportunity to change your project setting before import.                                                                                                                               

  • With the Bogart 7 for Windows Gold Edition, you can video edit on unlimited external USB hard drives. 


For everyone who makes their living editing video, they should go straight to the Bogart 7 Gold Edition with all the features, advantages and benefits. Chet Davis, who is the Casablanca Expert, did a webinar on Bogart 7 Windows Saturday, June 13, 2015, and he agrees with us. You can stream it here:

If you have trouble downloading and installing contact your Bogart Windows dealer below. After thoroughly testing your hardware with the basic Bronze 30-day free trial, you will need to license one of the Bronze, Silver, or Gold Editions. The Silver license number unlocks more features, and the Gold license number unlocks even more. Call or email your dealer with the 9 digit serial number.  From the main Bogart Windows menu, click the Settings button. The Serial Number will be in the lower left corner of the settings screen, exactly where it has always been. If you do not have a dealer, here is a list of our dealers (the ones who have a (W) next to their name are the only ones authorized to sell Bogart for Windows products in the Americas


We have  setup a Bogart for Windows Section in the Casablanca Forum if you have any questions, comments, complaints, wish list, or tips. Here are all the known issues (not many) from our fantastic MacroSystem Beta Team, led by the Old Timer Justin Philpott:



We will begin pre-orders the Casablanca 4 Studio, Studio Pro Desktops, and the Travel 4 Laptop June 15, 2015. Call or email your dealer. The Studio really makes life easier, because it is really hard to find a perfect solution off the shelf. Definately try the 30-day trial before buying the SW. The more powerful the computer the better, but I do not want to scare you. It runs well on any PC made this decade, but it is best using a 4th or 5th generation Intel i3, i5 or i7 processor with Intel Quick Sync Video. When I say best, I mean less waiting for Disc transcoding, and file exports when doing HD, Ultra-HD, and 4K. You also need at least 4MB of Ram. DV card if doing DV tape, and optional analog to digital converter if doing analog tape. The Windows Media Center Pro Pack as well as Bogart 7 Gold for Windows.
