Editors' Review

+

Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe takes your photos, videos, and audio tracks and transforms them into DVD presentations. It offers hundreds of transitions, effects, and clipart graphics with which you can create a compelling slideshow that you can then turn into a DVD or export as a file or YouTube video format.

Pros

Ideal for inexperienced users: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe does not require any intensive user input, just the basic importing of photos, videos, and audio. The application guides you all the way to DVD burning and file exporting.

Wide personalization options: The personalization stage is the application's strongest feature. The many effects and graphics available stimulate your creativity, encouraging you to create beautiful presentations.

File export: Don't let the app's name deceive you -- it can export presentations in several frequently-used file formats and even publish them as videos on YouTube.

Cons

No video editing: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe is not the best choice for content creators who want to put a truly personal touch on their video presentations. At $59.95, the cost of this app, you are in proper video editing software territory. While other video editors don't usually offer such a wide pallet of effects, they feature many frame editing features, which this software utterly lacks.

No interactivity: We would love to be able to mix our photos and videos in interactive DVD discs.

DVD compatibility issues: The test DVDs we burned were not compatible with our standard home system player.

Bottom Line

Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe targets beginners who want to create nice-looking slideshows with minimal effort. Although it tries to be an all-in-one solution, it lacks the video editing options that are indispensable for making great presentations. Besides, it's quite expensive.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.14.

"SERIOUSLY! DO NOT BUY!"

November 12, 2013  |  By basuda74

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.13

Pros

USER FRIENDLY

Cons

CCCRRAASSHHEESSS...I have a custom built computer strictly designed for HD Video editing. If you don't pay any attention to the negative feedbacks left by others you're an idiot for buying this software. It should be removed from all physical and cyber shelves immediately. Consumers are getting ripped off.

Summary

DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!! SAVE YOURSELF THE FUSTRATION AND HEADACHES!

"Junk, not intuitive at all"

July 18, 2013  |  By Cybrbrad

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.12

Pros

Slides organize easily

Cons

The music timeline does not correspond with the photo timeline. To synchronize the music with the slides you need a calculator . To rearrange songs you need to delete them and reimport. Not user friendly.

Summary

Find another program. This one stinks.

"Disappointed for price"

June 24, 2013  |  By basuda74

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.12

Pros

only good for photos and music

Cons

I have a custom made computer designed for video and photo editing. This program crashed constantly when adding video with music. Would not match my voice with the video and I would save regularly and it would still not save any of my changes making it frustrating to start ALL OVER again.

Summary

DO NOT spend money on this program. Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra dollars more on a more legit product.

"Fantastic and fun too!"

May 14, 2013  |  By ddanisloveopera

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.11

Pros

This program is fantastic -- great options, great results, even when one isn't yet familiar with it. The program I've used for several years quit performing a function it has always done, right at the end of a slideshow, and two weeks later I still haven't had answers from their tech support. So, that put me in a rush to get a new program and start again (trying to finish holiday DVDs before an visit to family overseas). Well, now I'm very glad I never heard from the previous company, as this program is light years ahead in flexibility and options and DVD picture quality. Plus, when I asked a question, I had a result in mere minutes. I can't wait until I really know the program well, as I've had excellent results just bumbling along.

Cons

Not yet, everything's great for me and my friends!

Summary

This software help me as much as i want. i start my business with it and now i am the alone person in my street who create the best slide show and movie editor, really i am most popular in my area. thanks woundershare.

"Don't be fooled by this low grade piece of software"

January 29, 2013  |  By knightsdir

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.11

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

You can achieve the same results with the free Microsoft Movie Maker. I was extremely offended when after a day or so of installation a pop-up box appeared on my desktop shortly after starting my computer. When I clicked the X to close the spam...it turned my whole desktop to that same ad. This is cheesy software that should be avoided. Further, on their website it indicates a full 100% 90 refund. Don't be fooled by that as I was... read the fine print. Not liking the software is not a valid reason for refund. Really?!?

Summary

Run away from this spam filled piece of junk.

"At last, a sensible movie editor."

July 17, 2012  |  By blufyre

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.5

Pros

I've put together a 90 minute movie with photos,video clips, transitions and effects, zooms and pans, titles and audio, all without crashes or things disappearing or having to wait ages for things to display in the preview window. After the frustrations of using Power Director, Pinnacle, Corel over the last few years, it's been heaven.

Cons

Nothing to grumble about. I can't understand one reviewer grumbling that it's not free and it only does one thing. The description clearly states this a trial software and it does a lot of things.

Summary

It might not have such a large choice of effects as some others but it is a lot simpler to use and at least it isn't full of bloatware and it does the job on an average computer without crashing so I think it deserves 5 stars.

"No Panoramic Photo Import or Portrait Menu Thumb Frame"

August 08, 2011  |  By SparkySD

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1.1.44

Pros

Simple to use, nice music/photo importing and timeline synchronizing capability. High resolution images look great on 1080i (16x9) screen.

Cons

1) Can't import panoramic photos at high resolution i.e. 4912 x 1080 pixels.
2) Needs Portrait Thumbnail Frame on the DVD menu page.
3) Does not allow Chapter Markers
4) The large size Fonts look bad.
5) The DVD Menu Buttons need to be high res.

Summary

It's a great application for the price (~$60), but needs just a few little improvements to make it excellent.

"This is a rival for Magik Photostory 10 Deluxe."

May 01, 2011  |  By nope2

 |  Version: Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe 6.1

Pros

Simple to use, All the options, good customer support, good value, 30 day Trial Version

Cons

Can't think of any, perhaps DVD menu could have more templates or you could create your own.

Summary

I am trialing both this and Magik 10 and both are great. I'ts a hard decision, I'd like to buy both. This one would be great for someone less computer literate and works without reading the manual. I had to read the manual for Magik and once I had it was just as easy. The Magik Trial Version is only available upon request at the moment and is a 700 MB download.
