"Sort of worked, sort of didn't"
Accurate detected all USB and the one built in camera
No instructions I could find, opens browser to their page after each use (big no-no with me), missed firewire camera, crashes when I try to limit file sizes and have it create new ones automatically afterwards, did not find any claimed scheduling for video
I expect any demo program I evaluate to be fully functional. I was looking for capture software that could work with any of my cameras, do a date and time overlay, and then save the files in one hour chunks to an external hard drive.
Much of the functionality reported in this review simply could not be found. Whether this is due to the lack of a manual, or the demo version was neutered, I don't know.
The software sort of functioned. Breaking up the video into one hour chunks simply caused the program to crash. This function is required, as an 11 hour video would simply be far too large to deal with. It also failed to detect my Sony digital camera, connected by firewire. It did identify the two USB cameras (Logitech and HP) as well as the built in one by Dell. Unlike many FREE software products, this one relies on third party software (supplied by the camera manufacturer) to adjust camera settings.
Given what is out there for free, and how superior those products work (I am one of those rare types that actually will contribute to the developer on those), I simply could not justify the unusually high price NCH demands for this application.
Sorry NCH, the previous version was much better.
