Nero 11 Platinum is a one-stop tool shop that lets you rip, burn, back up, convert, edit, and organize all of your digital media. We think it's a solid multimedia work flow solution for casual media enthusiasts and prosumers alike. But be warned--the installation file is massive, tipping the scale at pretty close to 1GB. And installation takes quite a long time as it takes up about 2.5GB of memory. But, with 11 programs making up the powerful multimedia suite, we can see why, and we aren't complaining.

One of our biggest issues with Nero 11 is its footprint on our system, with its 11 applications and corresponding shortcuts. Not only does it take up quite a bit of memory, it's slightly overwhelming to navigate at times. Luckily, the user experience is now anchored by Nero's media management hub, Nero Kwik Media and the new MediaBrowser window, which gives you quick access to your libraries from all of the applications. Nero has obviously heard users' comments and attempted to streamline the experience. While the suite is somewhat overwhelming in size, we do appreciate that the fixes help us zip around without any issue.

As for what Nero 11 Platinum can do, the short answer is just about everything you'd expect from a multimedia suite. It's an audio, video, photo, data, and home entertainment workhorse that lets you edit MP3s, capture and edit HD video, record and playback TV, create slideshows, back up data, recover data from damaged disks, convert audio files, check your hardware specs, and design disc covers with ease. Further, it performs with impressive speed and has a relatively simple user interface that shouldn't be alienating to novice media enthusiasts.

So what's new? Well, for one thing, Nero Video now includes an Express Editing mode that gets users out of the multitrack timeline and into a comparatively simple storyboard, making it easy to quickly throw together basic projects. And with this simplicity, Nero has brought some more advanced features like picture-in-picture overlays, support for AVC Camera files, and 3D effects. While they may not be professional-level features, many of the new additions do spill over into prosumer territory, which means quite a bit more bang for your buck.

There's also LIVEBackup, which provides automatic and continuous back up security with a single click. And now, with Kwik Media joining the suite, users can even create and order nifty photobooks right through the application. While Kwik Media does provide a convenient hub to manage all your media, one thing we're not so sure about is the integrated Market. While in-app purchases of new features might make sense in theory, we aren't confident it's going to catch on.

Nero has also gone to great lengths to improve file-conversion and sharing capabilities. With the much-improved Nero Recode, it's easier than ever to convert media between virtually any file formats and to output to virtually any device. There are also built-in tools for sharing to YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, and for burning high-quality Blu-ray and DVD discs. What's more, you can even sync your media between your PC and Android via Wi-Fi or USB. Considering the increasing importance of mobility these days, these improvements are arriving just in time.

From what we've seen so far, Nero 11 Platinum appears to be a winner. Sure, it's huge, and takes quite a bit of time to install, but with its 11 applications, it packs some huge features on top of the bread-and-butter functionality that made Nero 10 such a popular download. Plus, it comes completely reconstructed for improved performance and a more streamlined user interface.

"Very poor improvement over Nero 9"

April 29, 2010  |  By markmi300

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

More than one video track in Nero Vision Xtra
Chroma Key (Green screen) effects in Nero Vision Xtra

Cons

Nero Vision Xtra no longer has a user-friendly interface (Nero Vison Xtra Work!!!)
Nero Showtime - NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Nero Smart shortcuts in main gui - NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Media Center function for TV-Tuner playback/record - NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Summary

*** BE WARNED! ONCE YOU PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT FROM NERO, YOU OWN IT UNLESS YOU CAN PROVE A SOFTWARE DEFECT INSTEAD OF A POORLY PRODUCED PRODUCT ***

I?ve been using the Nero product since version 6 and had been pleased with the updates and improvements they have made. That is until version 10. I do a lot of video editing so the Nero Vision feature gets hit the most by me. The last couple of months I have been evaluating the trial versions of Pinnacle Studio 14, Adobe Premiere Elements 8, Corel VideoStudio Pro X3 and CyberLink PowerDirector 8 Deluxe. When I got info that Nero 10 was being released on April 12th, I pre-ordered it. Something I usually do not do with software. Because of Nero?s track record with improvements to the product and that Nero 10 supposedly had all the new capabilities I had found in the afore mentioned trial, I thought I would be pretty safe getting Nero 10. Less of a learning curve. I can edit projects done in previous releases, etc. BAD CALL ON MY PART. This is the worst version of the product they have released. If you frequently use any of the features I mentioned in the CONS section, don?t bother to buy 10. Stick with Nero 9 (If you use Windows 7) or Nero 8 (Windows Vista / XP). As I said I use Nero Vision frequently to edit videos that I shoot. The interface has been redesigned so that what use to be a couple of key strokes or mouse clicks, now takes double, sometimes triple the amount of time. One of the best editing features in the earlier versions of Vision was the editing Start ?[? and End ?]? markers. And the ability to manually set your edit points with the Time Display (hours:minutes:seconds.hundredths of a second). Well, that?s gone! It?s been replaced by a very clumsy Jog Wheel and Start & End markers that are very hard to get on the frame you want. Using the Chroma Key (Green Screen) effects is pretty simple, but you have to figure it out yourself. It?s not that easy to find the first time through the Gui and there is NO REFERENCE to it in the Nero Vision Xtra documentation. Fortunately, the Power Directory and Pinnacle products both had Chroma Key features so I was able to draw on what I did in those trials and their documentation. Saving your project in Nero Vision Xra, went from one simple click to two clicks. Click the save button, which now always brings up Save and Save As for choices. If this is the first time saving since opening the project, you will be told that ?A project by that name already exists. Do you want to overwrite it?? Even though this IS the same project you just opened!!
I also had one issue that I could not figure out. In my project, I have three separate videos. The Main feature, a secondary (special feature section) and a slide show. For what ever reason, the music track for the Slide show would not get processed during rendering. It plays fine during the edit process and during the review process from the menu generation. But when the DVD is produced (even from an ISO), there is no soundtrack for the slide show. I was already pretty angry about the whole stupid philosophy of ?make it look pretty and forget functionality? that I admit, I did not spend a great deal of time trying to figure it out. It was easier to produce the slideshow in Nero 9, export it as a video file and import the video file into Nero 10.

There are other issues that I?ve found with Nero 10, but I?m going to stop now because I see that this has already turned into a rant for me. Not quite what I intended, but you see my frustration. Especially since I wasted money on the Nero upgrade that I could have spent on a better product. Needless to say I will not be upgrading to any Nero products in the future. Nor will I be recommending it to friends.

As I mentioned earlier, I was evaluating other products before I heard about the Nero 10 release and will be purchasing CYBERLINK POWERDIRECTOR 8 DELUXE to do my video editing.
CyberLink PowerDirector 8 Deluxe has all the features of Nero Vision Xtra except the ability to produce a blu-ray feature. You can buy the next version up of that product for that capability. Or edit and produce your feature in CPD8 Deluxe and Import the feature into Nero 9 to produce a blu-ray disk. Pinnacle Studio 14 was my second chose followed by Corel VideoStudio Pro X3. Adobe Premiere Elements 8 was a big disappointment. Adobe has too many things going on behind the scenes. To import a video into a project (depending on size) took 20 minutes. Apparently the software will do scene detection, indexing and who knows what else during the import process. I never got to actually produce my feature in Adobe because of all the extra ?foo-foo? that it has to do before hand. There may be a way to turn off some of that, but it is not easy to find.

BOTTOM LINE - Nero 10 is a poor replacement for previous Nero versions. Stick with Nero 8 or 9 or go with CyberLink PowerDirector 8 Deluxe for video editing.

"Poorly integrated & buggy"

February 21, 2011  |  By thedancingman

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

IF you can get it to work, not a bad product but that's a big IF. Multi-track video recording

Cons

It's a bunch of lproducts "integrated" by a glossy entry point. It's buggy and corrupts its own project files AND it's it corrupts registry settings so that iTunes throws an error. Not a good product.

Summary

I echo the warnings given my MarkMe300. Nero customer service will not reimburse you regardless of the product being buggy to the point of incessant failure.

I was extremely disappointed with the performance of the software. I purchased it to complete a video project on a tight deadline. I was not able to complete more than 25% of the project because of serious bugs in the software that corrupted five (5) of six (6) project files. The only file that remained useable had the pictures rearranged from the set order. The corrupt files would open in timeline but it was obvious that many media files, narrative and text files had been lost. As soon as I tried to change to storyboard the product failed with a message and the product closed down with no recourse.

Recording narrative was also a poor quality process while in storyboard. The recording started clear and gradually developed a severe hum that increased in crescendo. I could however record successfully and clearly, with no distortion using the Nero standalone recorder but this defeated any notion of tight integration.

The 3rd problem is that the registry was corrupted causing iTunes to throw an error on startup after installing Nero 10. I reinstalled iTunes to no avail. From research it appears that my only remedy requires edits to my PC register, of which I am unqualified to do, therefore will require a service technician. That alone will cost approximately $70.00. Beyond preliminary research I am not sure what extent the damage is.

The 4th problem is that Quicktime files were also corrupted. I believe Quicktime fixed the problem itself but I have not verified this yet.

I removed Nero from my PC, installed Cyberlink PowerDirector 9 and completed my project a just hours before my deadline. This is a strong endorsement of PowerDirector though. I completed the installation on Monday evening and completed the project on time without knowing the product.

"A100% Pure Garbage"

July 21, 2010  |  By Schmeddy

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

It was nice to try before wasting money in it

Cons

The video editing part does not work. Very slow. The hardest to use from all the versions out.

Summary

This was the biggest waste of money. I tested in mulltple viirgin machines. On the XP system (with all services packs) it did not install. On the Vista machine ran so slow that it was unusable. When I try to edit a movie by having the movie with no sound and adding another sound track to it. The sound track never went in. Try several times, nothing. Try to exported nothing. It plays on the computer fine. It just won't record. Avoid the this siute it does not worth anything. If you get a free (Essentials) version just burn DVDs with it and that is it. The rest of the stuff delete it as it is garbage.

Pros

Don't know, trial period on all software expired already.

Cons

15 day trial period over before even using. Asking for money to upgrade.

Summary

Trial period non existent, just a ploy to get you to download install and then hand over money.

"More of the same"

June 28, 2010  |  By P_F_M

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

Installs faster than the last few releases.

Cons

Nero is synonymous with bloatware. The software seems to have issues with simple tasks like burning a CD. Although the same tracks burn fine using another application, Nero has produced a number of coasters.

Summary

Gone are the days when Nero produced simple, easy to use software that worked without issue. They seem to ignore user complaints and then produce a new and improved version with the unspoken promise that everything works perfectly. Find an alternative.

"it works with xp 32 but not xp64"

June 17, 2010  |  By laago

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

there really is nothing

Cons

Downloaded on xp64, updated all known drivers etc & still it asks for latest Windows extractor etc.
not a full video editor, seems to be orientated to Windows filters & codecs.

Summary

I have used 5 different movie editors, none perfect but all better than this.
Not a well designed interface, when working on a film it only shows the first few frames so difficult to edit.

"nothing new"

June 05, 2010  |  By Salamipoo

 |  Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 10 10.0.132

Pros

The fact it burns dvd pretty well and does the job ok

Cons

Nothing really new with this version.
It took me more than half an hour to download this software, It uses alot of system resource just to burn a simple dvd.

Converting videos to another format is slow.

Summary

I wouldn't buy this software. It shows no improvement from previous version. It's more bloated. Take ages to install. Uses alot of system resource.
