3.0 out of 5 stars Good software, but back-up your data first 21 Oct 2008
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The software takes a while to install, but covers most potential multimedia requirements, so this is a minor quibble. Whilst it is a definite step-up from other Roxio products I have owned, on installing on my main PC it destroyed my itunes library. Before installing, playing my music was fine. After installation, my itunes settings were corrupted, and I had to spend hours sorting out my large music library in itunes. I lost all my play-counts, song ratings and playlists, so this (for me, major) inconvenience wipes 2 stars off my review.

So after uninstalling on my desktop PC, it works fine on my laptop (which has no music library to be damaged!), which is a shame, as I would have used the software more regularly on my main PC.

From first impressions, it covers CD (music and data) creation effectively. The Cineplayer plays DVD's and can capture images during playback. Roxio Creator 2009 also covers basic picture editing as well, but most people will find its video editing software the most used part of the package. Adding titles, audio and chapter menus is simple to master, with good end results.

So, I would recommend this software for its quality video editing, plus the other uses (photo and music editing) make it value for money, but would strongly recommend that you back up your music library first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally Roxio takes on Nero and wins! 25 Oct 2008
By R. Wallace VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Firstly, prior to use, make sure to put the kettle on as this is one mother of a package taking up to 35 minutes to load onto your PC (not to mention close to a gig of memory)!

I've never been a fan of Roxio, opting for Nero, however at long last Roxio have beefed up considerably theur interface which has been given a far more user-friendly look, with icons now being used to identify and highlight the main applications of Home, Data-Copy, Video-Movies, Music-Audio, Photo and Online. In addition the suite of programmes are initially displayed in a "Home page", which allows you to instantly access basic tasks, such as copy or burn CD/DVDs without having to search through additional menus.

The interface is pretty clear (helpful for beginners), with links for Tutorials and "Do More", which helps you get the most out of the package and also makes it easier to get to grips with the basics however I'm not sure I'd recommend this package for absolute beginners as the more experienced enthusiast will definitely gain more joy and usage from what is a pretty comprehensive suite of programmes!

To me, at first glance and basics aside most of the features here are designed for audio, which is great news for those with basic home recording studios, or those who like to add music to home movies (ripping CDs and transcoding audio files are excellent features). In addiiton, Roxio has added Beatmatch, which allows you to blend tunes together (fancy a go at being Sasha for a day?!), while Automix tries to draw similar tempos together from your music collection so you don't need to trawl through them manually. On the whole, these are quite creative tools and a good place to start your DJ, digital editing career!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Value than the 'Ultimate Version' 31 Oct 2008
By Mr. Guy Mcevoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've had a chance to play with both this standard offering of the Roxio suite and also the 'ultimate' version and am convinced the extra money on the ultimate isn't worth it. If you forgive the cut and paste from my ultimate version review:

I guess the idea behind this is for Roxio to have a 'suite' of programs that allow users to do 95% of what they are likely to want to do with their media files on their PC without having to learn any complex programs or go on a night-school course. For most users this means:

- Burning music to CDs
- Burning films to DVDs
- Digitial Photo editing/touching up photos (removing red-eye, cropping etc)
- Editing home movies.

... whilst making sure that the output of the above is in standard formats that can be used by other people and is 'future' proof.

This is aimed at the casual home user. Hardcore pro's will go for the Adobe CS3 suite - by that is ten times the price so comparisons are unfair. Fairer comparisons are with free software. There is very adequate free programs that do all the above tasks well (e.g. windows comes with an OK film editor, Google have released the excellent picassa for photo editing etc.) I guess the value in this package is that all these tasks are accessible from one 'font end' with the same look and feel, and they have done their upmost to make all the tasks idiot proof.

So is it worth it? Well, if you consider yourself a competant PC user, very happy to download the free alternatives and figure out the different interfaces then it probably isn't. However, if you're really only an occasional PC user and just dipping your toes in - then it probably is. This package is very user friendly and spoonfeeds you towards very good results very quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use and very comprehensive software 23 Oct 2008
By Mr. K. P. Rogers VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This software offers a lot, as you can see from the list of features above (so I won't repeat them here). The main purpose here is how well it performs these functions.

As a regular user of Nero and NTI I was apprehensive about trying new software. I need not have worried. Roxio makes all the tasks easy and straightforward, whether it's burning CDs/DVDs (and Blueray, but I don't have this functionality on my computer). It does seem slower than the other software options available but in performing tasks the software is intuitive and so the slowness is no bother.

The photo-editing software is ideal for today's common usages such as sorting out colours/contrasts etc, improving your snaps with easy-to-use functions.

Importantly, this is a piece of 'complete' software, allowing for burning, video, music and photos. It is a complete package that should satisfy most users, including novices. Recommended.
