5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product February 22, 2004
By seamus
I got the product based on the PC Mag review which said it was great. It's quite simply an incredible product when you consider what previous versions were like and what you get for less than $100. It's not perfect but it comes close. Here's some pros and cons. On the pro side, it basically has everything you need for anything to do with music, burning, video, photo and DVD. Everything looks and works the same way (it might the nicest looking software on the PC - actually it looks like Apple made it!) All the tools work well together. The burning is really fast. There's a nice data back up feature with password protection. It has this very cool feature where you can create slide shows of pictures that move, which is an amazing effect. The whole slide show app is pretty clever. It's actually a video app (which might seem scary at first) but it's so easy to use you never realize it. You can use it for both pictures and video. The disc label app is pretty extensive(I didn't think people actually use these) it's a full featured graphic app just for disc labels and it works while you burn CDs. The photo app seems no different in features than Adobe Elements but is much easier to use (more about that below). The DVD application is very full - you can move and resize buttons and text, you can animate buttons and menus, it even has Dolby audio. You can edit DVDs. You can even create a full DVD with just one click with a digital camera. There's a tool that comes up when you plug in digital cameras to bring your photos or videos in. I've never seen such a tool (usually every digital camera has it's own software). You can record audio from LPs or tapes and the software finds the different songs automatically. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING "MUST HAVE" SOFTWARE June 1, 2004
I recently bought a new PC and then also bought Roxio Easy Media Creator 7. I'm a knowledgable PC shopper and asked everyone if this software came bundled on a PC and the answer was no everywhere I turned. Those "in the know" told me the only Roxio bundled software was older versions, not EMC7. So, I don't know what our previous reviewer is talking about?
This product is amazing! Before I purchased EMC7 I did a thorough search for the best digital media software for my budget (under $100) and Roxio was the clear winner. Here are just a few examples I discovered:
>> Basic Burning: EMC7 supports desktop drag and drop with automatic handling of file types, Nero does not.
>> Photo Editing: EMC7 allows you to add pan and zoom to slideshows, not Nero. EMC7 offers advanced photo editing (cloning, masking, stitching, etc) and paint tools, Nero doesn't
>> Video and Slideshows: Nero does not allow you to mix photo and video with transitions, where EMC7 does. EMC7 allows 7 track audio support, while Nero allows 3 tracks for video and only 1 track for photo slideshows. EMC7 offers over 150 transitions, Nero only has about 40.
>> DVD Authoring: EMC7 allows multiple storyboards in a single window, Nero doesn't. EMC7 allows you to drag and drop photos and videos between storyboards, not Nero.
>> CD/DVD Copying: EMC7 CD and DVD copy module uses same component with same or similar workflow, not Nero
This is just my extensive research on talking to other users, reading press coverage, product literature and searching the web, to making sure I spent my money wisely and bought the best software for the job. I suggest you also read the reviews done by the professionals, such as CNET, EMEDIALIVE and PC Magazine to name a few that I used.
I hope this helps. I think this software is amazing and recommend it over Nero or other products in this class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended March 3, 2004
I decided to upgrade my ageing version of Easy CD Creator 5 last week, and picked up Easy Media Creator 7 on Saturday. My main interests are managing and archiving all the photos on my system and getting more into digital video and DVD - which I've found hard to understand in the past.
I really like the application launcher that starts up when you first run Easy Media Creator, it immediately gave me a bunch of great options across Photo, Video, Music, Data and DVD. Having the type of tasks I'd want to complete right there rather than just a list of applications is very cool.
The first thing I tried was video editing .. I have a Sony Digicam but I've just been collecting DV tapes and not attempting to edit them. I selected 'Capture Video' from the task list and Capture popped up showing my Sony DV camera in a list of possible things I could capture. I then used SmartScan - this is cool, rather than copy everything onto my hard drive it tells me what I've captured on my DV tape and let's me select what to capture. I did that and then left it for a few minutes to capture only the scenes I wanted. Kind of freaky hearing the DV camera fast forward, stop, play for a while, fast forward ... nice automation!
When I came back tried out VideoWave, the video editing application in the suite. I've only ever tried using the editor that came with my camera, but it was so bad I gave up right away. I had been meaning to buy a full-on editor for a while, but I'm glad I waited. VideoWave is much more than I expected, it's a complete video editor with hundreds of effects and transitions. I spent ages just playing with all the effects before I got into serious editing. I did have to check with the manual a few times to understand Timeline, but I'm blown away.
