    "BEWARE! No Network Support!"

    March 20, 2011  |   By robpgreer

    Pros

    Most powerful slideshow creation tool available.

    Cons

    No network support! Must keep files on local drive.

    Summary

    I have a 12TB NAS device and I can't use it with ProShow Producer. I keep all of my working files on network storage (accessed via a gigabit network and high speed NAS) and according to Photodex support, network storage of files is "Not Recommended." Translated, that means that it's not supported. This means that in order to use their software I must modify my strict storage plan in order to accommodate their failings as a program. Now I have to copy the files over to a local drive, work on them, and then copy them back (to make sure that I have room on my local drives and ensure that those files make my backup schedule). It leaves a bitter taste in my mouth for what is otherwise a nice product.
