I have delved deeply into home movie making over the last year since my purchase of a DVDCamcorder, but have found many of the affordable software packages lacking.
This package however is all the Hollywood glitz you need to edit, enhance and make your own movies from scratch.
The box contents is lacking, in fact its a nice box with just a DVD inside, thats it!, was shocked at the waste of packaging but hey, recyle!
The installation went smooth and within 5 minutes or so i was up and running. Its taken me a few days to realy see what this can do as i encountered endless problems and errors early on. This was down to the software been very picky over the dvd files my Canon DC95 was creating, it just didnt want to read them and constantly crashed or halted.
After little help from Cyberlink and their forums, i tried my own solution of converting the dvd files into MP4's and working from there on which worked perfectly. Annoying work around but the softwares ability there after more than made up for it.
I think the biggest thing for me is the way in which you can chop and change movies, adding great graphics and text, enhancing the actual video and so on with such great ease and speed, leaving you with some great looking DVDs or Bluray movies.
Ive not tried the Bluray burning side of the software yet, but have enjoyed and been extremely impressed with the DVD part.
All in all this is a must have for any budding movie makers or those who want to add a touch of class to their home movies. Id have given it a 5/5 if it wasnt for the odd niggley error, but nothings perfect!
