Response to Critics,
This review is from: Dazzle Video Creator Platinum [OLD VERSION] (CD-ROM)
This is a response to critics. I carefully read the reviews of Pinnacle Studio 10, which this package comes with, and negative comments on Pinnalce support, on the various venues on Amazon.com. So I almost didn't buy this. But I'm glad I took the chance. To be sure, I haven't yet actually got to the point of burning the DVD, only capturing. But the installation and the capturing (from VHS) and editing I've done so far have been perfectly smooth and incredibly easy. And Pinnalce support - live chat -- was prompt. It turns out that the problem I had wasn't with the software or PC at all, but with my VCR (the right stereo channel did not output). I don't know the specs of the Gateway I'm using except that it has 1 MB of ram, which I suspect is really what one needs. Video capturing programs take a lot of a PC's resources like gaming programs do. Overall, I find the software very easy to learn and use. I get the sense that most of the people who write reviews are the disgruntled, not the pleased. In fact, I'm writing this because, despite the critics, I'm impressed with just how easy it is to piece together and edit (create menus) from different video sources. If I have a problem with burning, I'll write again.

I hope you meant 1 GB of RAM and not 1 MB.
