    "can't figure this out"

    December 10, 2004  |  


    this software came bundled with a purchase of adobe premiere-- while it promises to be more versatile than other authoring programs, I have yet to be able to author anything with it. the process is very unintuitive and clunky and the program's help is pretty much useless. I sat down tonight to try and figure it out and still i am stymied. I am very suspicious of some of the other reviews here, they all sound too much like PR dept hype to me, don't match my experience at all, and I'm a reasonably capable user. thank goodness my dvd drive came with sonic mydvd, that's a simple program -- won't do chapters, and the menu page is stiff, but at least I could make it work on the first go-round. I'll give this another go but I'm not optimistic, the help is like translated stereo install instructions. here's a sample of undecipherable help:

    Select a type of menu to create

    1 Select to include a scene selection menu for your project.

    2 Standard menu (Blank) Select to create the menu from scratch. You will start with a solid colored background in the workspace. You will have to provide all the components you want for the menu. You can only create a single page menu when you select this.

    3 Standard menu (Template) Select to able to choose a preset menu template for your menu. You will have to provide the other components except for the menu background. You can only create a single page menu when you select this.

    and so on . . .

    I'm looking for a book to explain this program and can't find one that's positively reviewed.
