    "Waste of time - I would rate it zero if I could"

    April 27, 2011   |   By ArKay5969

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    I'm glad I didn't spend real money, only wasted my time.

    Cons

    Very buggy, never once worked right.

    Summary

    Having read the reviews, the latest version of Corel's dvd movie maker is to be one the best. Well I bought their DVD player and never once worked right, so I thought I'd try a trial version to see... The first attempt made a good looking movie with no sound. Nice intro sound and sharp looking menus but my movie had no sound. The button described in the manual didn't exist in this version to control sound. I removed the program - did a major clean-up on the PC and reinstalled only to make the problem worse.
    I did try Nero (bundle with a dvd drive I bought) and hated it so much I swore I never buy it. Hoping to find something decent???

    "Actually better than Nero!"

    March 20, 2011   |   By dragginrsx

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    The most important pro is this program allows ALL my burned DVDs to work in ALL DVD/BluRay and EVEN my old HD-DVD player. No other burning program has EVER allowed this level of compatibility!

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    The "Pros" explain it all!

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    Movie Factory 6 plus is very good

    Cons

    Makes It Easy But Lacks Options

    Summary

    Corel/Ulead DvD Factory is fairly easy to use if you just wish to do simple editing. Trimming, adding chapters, combining clips are all more intuitive with this program than the stripped down version of Nero. For half the price of Ulead's VideoStudio, you get fewer bells and whistles and a bit less creative control. But VideoStudio involves much of the same software as I learned. Attempts to get fancy that proved too much for DVDFactory and lead to the program freezing up had the same ill effect in VideoStudio. DVDFactory probably is no different from any other video program in that it will use up a large amount of hard drive space with its working versions of your projects. The first time it took me a few minutes to figure out where 30 GB of hard drive space could have gone to before realizing that DVDFactory pretty much puts the entire dvd project into one of its folders. That way it just pulls up the project instead of reapplying the edits to your original video when you open. The menu creation step restricts the user to only a few possibilities. This I found to be really frustrating. I searched for updates/enhancements on the Corel/Ulead website but this program seems to be the forgotten stepchild. I found out on the user forum that one can make their own menus but it is a lot of work requiring the use of Ulead's photo program. So after spending considerable time to get the movie just right, one then has to settle for some pretty awful menu graphic options. So if you are just starting out at editing your videos this program will empower you through your first 10 projects but after that you will be forced to rehash the same menus and themes that were rather tacky in the first place.

    "Best Professional style DVD creator"

    December 13, 2010   |   By Checkit999

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    Best Professional style DVD creator
    Best Menu with choice of own jpg background and Menu Writing Fonts
    Allows for background music mp3 to be added
    Allows creation and print of labels
    Burns great slideshows with images and video

    Cons

    Is a bit slow and buggy when first installed on Windows OS upgrade from its written program for the current Windows version
    Needs root reboot after installing since apparently reboot of Windows is not enough
    Relies too much on Windows OS Program

    Summary

    This is a rich Plus DVD program and worth the time and effort to use it. The DVD authoring is much more than a simply burner and DVD MovieFactory is the best I have ever used.

    "Don't waste your time with this rubbish!!!"

    December 01, 2010   |   By Helipilot

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing.

    Cons

    I am sure there are plenty of cons if I could pass the 1st stage of adding movie files without crashing the software every time. Tried everything, updates, faqs, the lot, nothing makes it work, I am asking for my money back, total waste of time...

    Summary

    It crashes on initial stages of adding movie files after installing SP1 + SP2. Before installing updates the software would add the movies no big deal but all functions would be grey (no access) so I could do nothing! I can't believe that these guys are selling something like this that just doesn't work... I was naive enough to buy without trying because I thought I could trust the name Corel... Don't fall for it!!!

    Total rubbish.

    "One of the worst software companies around"

    August 01, 2010   |   By sbford313

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    None that I can think of. Unless showing up to do your job one out of ten times could be considered a pro anything... ;)

    Cons

    Extremely buggy. Crashes, doesn't open, hates Windows 7.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time.

    Updated on Aug 1, 2010

    Don't waste your time. Also, I forgot to mention... I don't know how this software maintains a 2.5 star rating... but do notice that about half of the folks here rated it at 1 star. So half the people who use this software absolutely think it's garbage.
    Cheers!

    "Good starter software with advanced editing thrown in!"

    January 21, 2010   |   By MattDN

    Version: Ulead DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus

    Pros

    Easy to use, offers solid tools for video editing on many different disc types, has useful resources and offers professional-looking templates and menu styles galore! Really can improve your DVD/BD experience!

    Cons

    Lags occasionally even on my PC (2.6ghz dual core, 3GB RAM), still lacks some small features I'd expect to see from a paid-for product. Also sorry it doesn't support motion-backgrounds on SVCDs.

    Summary

    For the price I really enjoy the features this product has to offer, such as the large amount of varied menu templates for DVDs, and the ability to edit every little detail to customize it. It produces good quality video that displays well even on HDTVs. The ability to do in depth video-editing also appeals, but I do find some features could have been omitted in favour of more useful ones. Overall a nice suite for even advanced DVD editing!
