When the good people at Roxio asked if we wanted to take a look at Roxio Creator 2011, I jumped at the chance and tagged Dylan to do the honors for us. His work is solid, and I knew he’d give an honest review. From what I’ve seen in this video, Roxio Creator 2011 is a fantastic overall application that will fit most of your media needs. We’ll tell you later in this writeup how to win one of three copies for yourself!

Roxio Creator allows you to edit in 3D, and create standard-definition and high-definition Hollywood-style 3D movies on DVD from 2D and 3D input. Free 3D glasses are included with your purchase!!!

Easily edit your standard and HD videos. Add picture-in-picture effects, titles and scrolling credits. Rotate video with one click, auto-adjust color, brightness and contrast. Access and share the videos and movies on your PC from the Internet virtually anywhere, anytime.

Trim unwanted parts, combine multiple tracks together, normalize the volume across the mix and add fun effects. Create advanced playlist projects with crossfades, transitions and audio mashups. Dylan reports that this software is quite good at audio editing. He would know, as he’s a professional podcaster and works with audio files every day.

The photo-editing portion of the suite is not one that Dylan felt comfortable enough to do an in-depth review of. He admits to not being a photo editor. However, he found the software to be intuitive and simple to use… yet allowed him to make photos look very VERY good with just a few easy clicks.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one suite, Roxio Creator 2011 just may be the one for you! If you’d like to win one of three copies for yourself, make sure you’re following me on Twitter. Send me an @ Tweet and include the hashtag #RoxioCreator before noon eastern time on Friday, December 17th. Three people who do this will be chosen at random to win a copy for themselves. That’s all there is to it!

iMovie '11 Review


Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed

Just like I had done for iPhoto ’11, I’ve recorded a screencast of iMovie ’11. It’s difficult not to like something that’s continually improving and is relatively simple to use. The addition of the audio editing features makes iMovie ’11 worth the upgrade from earlier versions.

iMovie makes it easy to turn your home videos into your all-time favorite films. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll watch them over and over again. And you’ll share them with everyone.

New features include:

  • Movie Trailers
  • Audio Editing
  • One-Step Effects
  • People Finder
  • Sports and News Themes
  • World Premiere

Many people are griping about the Movie Trailers. It’s a kick-ass feature, though. Sure, we will likely see some crap-quality things being uploaded by people who don’t care to learn how to really use this function. However, we will also see some seriously awesome stuff pumped out on YouTube and other platforms.

Being able to edit audio is something we’ve long waited for! Thank god they finally listened, eh?

What are your thoughts on iMove ’11?
