One Product&Infinite Possibilities
Roxio Creator 7 is designed to empower users to effortlessly and effectively direct their entire digital universe within a single application. Seamlessly merging the capabilities of Roxio's complete line of established, full-featured digital media applications including Easy CD & DVD Creator, PhotoSuite, and VideoWave, Creator provides an unparalleled level of breadth, depth, and integration for users wishing to organize, edit, share, preserve, and consume a lifetime of personal digital music, video, photos, and data.
Rather than being a digital media suite comprised of independent applications, Creator is an integrated suite where all components look and behave similarly and interact seamlessly.
Creator's Capture component delivers a consistent workflow regardless of the media type being captured or the digital device being used.
Unlike many applications, Creator enables you to launch components and complete additional tasks while a burn project is processing. For example, you can create and print a disc label and cover for an Audio CD, while the CD is being burned.
Common Editing Tasks
The most commonly used editing tasks are readily available when needed. For example, while creating a slide show, you are able to edit photos (i.e. crop, rotate, resize, and remove red eye), without leaving the component.
Home enables you to view, in a logical fashion, the many photo, video, music, and burning tasks and applications available. From Home you can choose to enter a product component, launch a task, open a recent project, or review a tutorial.
Creator offers a single utility to manage, view, and find all photos, video clips, and projects.
Data and File Sharing
Creator enables you to quickly move files between components (e.g., pre-select photos in Media Manager and launch into PhotoSuite's multi-photo enhance). In addition, the application intelligently moves file data between tasks when appropriate (e.g., If you enter Label Creator while burning a music CD, the disc label will be dynamically populated with track list, song title, and artist name).
While a great deal of time and effort went into seamlessly integrating Roxio's media software, we also greatly enhanced the feature set of every component to a point where each could be a highly competitive stand-alone application. Here are some of the innovative new enhancements in Creator 7.
Most applications would force you to capture the entire contents of your video camera or manually fast forward and rewind through the content to find and copy scenes of interest. Creator's innovative SmartScan feature saves you time by quickly scanning the content and displaying thumbnail previews of all the scenes on your camera without actually copying the content to your hard disk. This allows you to selectively decide what content you'd like to copy.
Plug & BurnIf you don't wish to perform edits on the video captured to your digital video camcorder, Plug & Burn enables you to go directly to DVD in just two clicks of the mouse!
Edit DVD discEdit DVD disc enables you to add titles to previously created DVDs. Use this feature to create compilation DVDs of your favorite TV shows recorded to a DVD Recorder, or to add titles to personal DVDs (i.e. DVDs you've created consisting of personal photos and videos).
Use StoryBoard to combine your favorite photos, video files, and songs to create an engaging slide show. Give your slide show a professional touch with titles, transitions, narration track, special effects, and even turn a still photo into a mini movie with the Motion Picture feature.
Timeline Video Editing
Use the editing tools of the professional with VideoWave's timeline. Have fine tune control over the timing of assets in your production including audio, titles, video files, and special effects.
Disc Copier provides you with a transparent way to make high quality copies of non-CSS protected DVD Video. Disc Copier clearly displays the video and audio content on the DVD so you can remove unnecessary content and subsequently increase the quality of the movie.
Scheduled BackupDon't let computer viruses or system crashes cause you to lose important files on your system. Use Creator Classics' backup feature to schedule regular backups of the data on your system. In addition, add an extra level of security to the resulting disc with the new encryption feature.
Top Customer Reviews
It can also burn VCD/SVCD and audio CD as well as MP3 disks. It also has support for Direct CD burning, allowing you to burn to a CD just as if it was a hard drive. Sounds too good to be true?
At face value, this product has nothing on Nero 6, except its a lot slower than Nero 6 when performing any of the tasks that are shown on the box, and the minimum system requirements are a little optimistic. I would reccomend at least 2 Ghz processor and 1GB of RAM for the video editing.
You also want to be careful if you have a DVD-RW drive, not all are supported so it might be a good idea to check first (they released a patch for my drive), so I have taken one star off for that reason....
Its better than all of the previous Roxio programs that are avaliable, as well as (feature wise) it is better than Nero 6 too. Possiably a little expensive, but you pay for quality :)
Summing up, I do not recommend this for a Novice or persons without considerable computer ability. Good program, pity about the guidance,
It's simple to find your way around the product and work out what you want to do, and I particularly like the slideshow producer. Since buying this product, I have bored plenty of my family with slideshows of my grandkids, which I burnt to DVD.
I would recommend this product to anyone who was as confused as I about the different programmes available, and what each one did. This product does it all!
The documentation with the product is limited and it is essential to print it off the website though you will need plenty of ink and a small rainforest! If you are a newcomer to this sort of software the manuals are essential
Have had problems with this crashing my system, I even got the blue screen of death. Though my computer has minimal requirements I have given it 5 stars because I am sure it will fly when processor and memory is upgraded. If you have a new powerful system (which is needed for editing video) it will fly.
Have made professional looking slideshows, there is napster connection. Music, MP3 and DVD videos can be made. It even prints disk labels and sleeves! in fact it will do everything!
Recommended but watch your computing power!
