Will Roxio Solve My Problem?!

August 25, 2009


Has anyone tried this software? It’s the Roxio Creator 2009 software. I saw it dirt cheap while scouring Buy.com’s sale pages. (You DO check out Buy.com’s sale pages every week, now, don’t you?!). As many of you know, I’ve been going bananas, trying to find SOMETHING that I can use to edit .MOV files from my digital camera. It’s a hunt that’s been going on for, oh, maybe 4 months now. 🙁 I have tried all sorts of the free software, to no avail. Finally, I shelled out $60 on various converting software (that DID NOT WORK). So when I saw this, I wondered if I should grab it?! Have any of you tried this software? The price is amazing— It’s almost half-off with rebate, with free shipping ($50 to $30 or so). This is what the description says:

New Roxio Creator 2009 is everything you need to easily create and share the stories of your life using your digital audio, photos, and videos.
New Roxio Creator 2009 makes it easy for family members of every age and experience level to transform photos and video from digital cameras, camcorders, and camera phones into awesome photo and video stories to share with family and friends – safely online on your personal Roxio web page, on DVD or Blu-ray Disc, or on-the-go — on an iPod, mobile phone or another portable player.

# Create engaging stories using your photos, video and music
# Preserve your memories and important files by easily burning or copying* CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs
# Burn high-def video on standard DVDs for playback on your PlayStation 3 or other Blu-ray player
# Auto-mix the perfect playlist to enjoy on CD, iPod, or mobile phone
# Transform your photos into one-of-a-kind calendars, greeting cards and collages in just a few steps
# Delight family and friends by sharing your slideshows on DVD

Then it goes on to tease me by including THIS:

# Input Formats:
# Video: AVI, DV, HDV, DV-AVI, MPEG-1/2/4, MPEG2-HD, DVD-Video, IFO/VOB, DivX, DivX HD, XviD, DVR-MS, TiVo, ASF, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, 3GP, MPEG2 Transport Stream, AVC (H.264), AVCHD

I’ve tried another software program (ULead) that says it supports .MOV files, but in reality– ULead is so slow and bulky that my teeth gnash when I use it. This Roxio sounds good… if you have tried it, PLEEEEASE leave me a comment.

And also– check out Buy.com this week! They have tremendous sales right now for back-to-school. I am on a school shopping hunt myself– I’ll let you know about any more deals!

    My coworker has used Roxio products in the past and likes the company. However, I have never used them for this before.

    Lisa, I appreciate your constant input on this SO MUCH. 😀 I’m looking into this software– so far, so good. But I think I will still get a Mac Mini for my next computer, whenever that will be… iMovie looks SO sweet.
