I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there’s no easier way to make an attractive, easily navigated DVD than using MyDVD, and that’s as much the case in version 6 as in version 5. Which is saying something, since the competition got better in the meantime.

Jan Ozer | If you're already using Vegas 4, version 5 is a no-brainer upgrade. If your video productions are music-intensive, and you're not already using Vegas, you should be. Vegas can do virtually everything that Premiere Pro can do, and a whole lot more, but you'll get there faster and easier in Premiere Pro. Though vastly improved, DVD Architect still trails DVD Workshop and Encore in overall functionality.

Never has a consumer product in the digital media space packed so much power and versatility and made it so easy to get to. For application triage, Creator 7 has no peer. With the exception of the (still) disappointingly limited DVD Builder, they are all fine tools, and there are logical (and usually multiple) ways to navigate between them. What’s more, it’s got a mind-boggling price: it’s hard to argue with a suite jam-packed with top-notch apps for $99.
Editorial/Product Review - Posted 12 Apr 2004 - April 2004 Issue

Impression DVD-Pro has several features, like support for two camera angles and multiple-labguage and subtitle streams, that are unavailable on similarly priced products like DVD Workshop or DVDit! If you need these features, you can spend $599 for Impression, or $1500 for ReelDVD. These features are not available on Impression DVD SE, which will be bundled with many Pinnacle products-you'll have to pay $399 for the upgrade. If you're a graphics designer intimate with Photoshop, you'll probably like Impression, and you probably won't find the learning curve all that steep. If you're a sales, marketing, or training professional without a designer, you'll probably find DVD Workshop a better choice, even if you receive Impression in a bundle.

All hail the new prosumer video editing king, at least for now. Bring on Premiere Pro.

Synopsis: Pinnacle makes several aggressive claims for its Pro-ONE professional video editing and authoring system, including “true” real-time 3D effects and a broader effects palette than its competition. The card does indeed deliver real-time 3D processing works fine with anti-aliasing off; the generous effects package does indeed deliver outstanding customization options. The bundle also includes the newly upgraded DVTools for tape scanning and batch capture and several Pinnacle utilities. At press time, the product lacked Windows 2000 and XP support, but Pinnacle has promised to remedy that before this review hits the streets.

Synopsis: With Edition, Pinnacle's first-release version of the mature FastStudio software they acquired from Fast Multimedia, DV video producers in particular have a new, very affordable tool that can work on anything from a desktop to notebook with professional functionality and results. Edition is a new tool in today's digital studio, and part of a new trend of capable, yet affordable tools. It stands rightly a notch above Premiere and is priced and positioned aggressively against the real competition from editing solutions like Final Cut and Avid's XPress DV. That alone should give you reason enough to take a look.

Synopsis: USB Instant DVD is a featherweight plastic box with lots of I/O and, from the looks of things, not much else—besides nifty interior chipware that keeps MPEG encoding out of sight and out of mind. Designed to be a sort of digital-studio-in-a-box, Instant certainly doesn't make your PC into the same sort of video production powerhouse as, say, Final Cut Pro or Premiere, much less higher-priced MPEG encoding hardware. But it captures and encodes full-frame MPEG-2 and delivers it to your hard drive via USB in malleable shape, and comes with software to edit and prepare it for VCD or DVD output. If sadly misnamed "quick and dirty" capture-to-chapter DVD creation is what you have in mind, Instant DVD definitely gets a dirty job done.

DVD-Recorder is the first drive based on Pioneer’s Editor’s Choice-winning A03 to use a USB 2.0 interface, and the drive and the interface prove mightily up to the challenge at hand. It writes DVD-R at 2X and CD-R/RW at 8X, like all A03 derivatives; it burns seams-bursting DVD-5s in under 29 minutes. The Que! drive also comes with a nifty software bundle, including PowerDVD for DVD playback, Easy CD Creator 5 (standard edition) for CD recording, and medioStream’s wonderful neoDVD for entry-level DVD authoring and recording. Some bundles also include for promotional purposes an unidentified 2-port USB 2.0 PCI host adapter.
