"Great Features, Needs Much Improvement"
Very buggy stuff, unusual developer that releases upgrades about once a week. This is a great product in theory, has beautiful and feature-rich interface, problem is, it doesn't work the way it is supposed to. Version 2.0, Build 1547 has numerous bugs, it doesn't recognize many DVD burners, so have to create an ISO or CUE file, then burn that from Nero or equivalant. MPEG generator is simply awful. The program often stops review-playback ability, making you save your file and restart the program to continue. HTML based shows simply don't work. Nice things about it? If you're willing to jump through theoops, it will generate a VCD-DVD-EXE show with liquid smooth motion, much better than anything out there, I've tried them all. Great Ken Burns pan-zoom-rotate effects make still photos appear video-like. Tech support is by toll free number, they answer quickly and are quite helpful. They also admit version flaws and quirks, and to check often for new releases. Overall, this will be a great product when they get it right. But download the existing release and play with it for 2 weeks for free, you'll really like what it can do.
