Editors' Review

Nero 11 Multimedia Suite was already a monster collection of production tools. Though the last iteration provided a solid collection for both the casual and advanced enthusiast, Nero 12 continues to push toward becoming a go-to tool for people's growing network of devices at home.

Nero streamlines workflow with its own built-in file management system, Kwik Media. Applications are accessed from a single interface to avoid fragmentation and reduce confusion. Windows 8 users will be glad to see that the suite integrates smoothly with the new redesigned tiled UI. Kwik Media intelligently organizes your frequently used media based on face recognition, similar to face tagging on social networks. Though it's not always perfect, it's a welcome addition, especially when working with lots of pictures of friends and family.

Since its disc-burning days, Nero has evolved into an all-encompassing production station that enables you to edit MP3 files, manage and produce HD videos, create slideshows, back up data, and more. Nero wants to help you produce content for your home entertainment ecosystem, no matter what device you own. You can convert just about any media format for any device, plain and simple.

The tools are solid and simple enough for any novice or advanced media enthusiast. Nero 11 users should feel right at home, since most of the applications and workflow should remain relatively intact, with a couple added enhancements.

Nero 12 trumps 11 by expanding compatibility with updated HD formats, particularly with Blu-rays and AVCHD 2.0-level file types. Blu-ray importing is improved as well as exporting files that are playable on just about any device and vice versa. Nero Video creates and encodes media in higher (50p/60p) formats, including AVCHD3D for stereoscopic 3D videos, as well as performs batch ripping from online content sites. Edits can now be made directly within Recode. The video-editing suite is packed with extra add-ons and features. People who film their videos with smartphones can take advantage of Nero's built-in stabilization to reduce the shaky cam effect.

When combined with an already large collection of popular filters and effects, you can make some surprisingly high-production-value-looking home movies. Nero 12 also made it easier to apply effects to videos; simply drag and drop a premade effect directly into the timeline. These little tweaks are definitely a welcome improvement.

Nero 11 users may have trouble being compelled to upgrade unless they plan on exclusively working with Blu-ray formats or working with legacy content on Windows 8. However, new adopters will find that Nero remains a sufficient multimedia option capable of handling most tasks with its full editing and management suite.

"BUY IT!!!!"

April 12, 2013  |  By Morny5

 |  Version: Nero 12 12.0.02900

Pros

A brilliant product! I have just updated my old version and bought version 12 yesterday but haven't yet had time to use all the features. I have used Nero for years and years and have found their customer care really good and so I can't understand a previous post saying otherwise, unless it was just a one-of? Whenever I have contacted them, they've replied very soon afterwards and are very courteous too.

I have used loads of different burning software over the years but NERO is the ONLY one that accepts my long file names. None of the other programs do and come up with all sorts of errors. Not only this, it is a truly lovely piece of software and I can't wait to try out all the features.

Cons

None that I know of.

Summary

A very good product and worth buying.

"Worst customer service in my history with software"

April 09, 2013  |  By barwol

 |  Version: Nero 12 12.0.02900

Pros

It's ok software, so so if you are lazy it's ok to get and install. I was lazy and got burned :( (get it?)

Cons

Nero lost my registration information.
Next time I re-purchased I was supposed to get a couple of other software packages, Nero did not send them and is refusing a refund.

Summary

Worst software company for customer relations. Does not care at all. For Nero, money is all that is important. Stay away from Nero, if you have a problem they merely relegate it to "dissatisfaction" and do not respond.

"Complete media suit"

February 18, 2013  |  By Miran33

 |  Version: Nero 12 12.0.02900

Pros

+ Support of allmost all file types in nero recode / export / and video editing.

As apposed to other users had no problems using this in windows XP. Also had not problems with the installation procedure. I dont mind it being big or taking alot space, I am paying for a product, if they want to add features that take space then the better it is for me. Thats probably why they seperated the instalation files into two files. One being the core components (300 MB) second being the content pack (700mb).

I had nero 11 platinum and would recommend getting nero 12 platinum for the following reasons:
* Highly improved nero recode, example, it now detects the different sound streams and subtitles from mkv files, and you can choose between the streams to export into allot other file formats.
* Added couple effects into video editing.
* If you are subscribed to their newsletter you can benefit from discounts
* Upgrading is cheaper compared to having to buy it the first time around.

Cons

I would like to have more features in editing videos such as masking/ cutting / applying effects ON HAND/FREE SELECTED PARTS, Like some picture software have or like the more expensive video editing software software that can go for 5 to 10 times the price of the nero software suit.

I primary use Nero video and Nero recode / export only.
