Devices include iPod, iPhone, Apple TV from Apple; PSP from Sony, Zune from Microsoft, Epson players, Cell phones and PDAs.
Packaging of the six modules, as described in the “About” section, helps getting all the needed operations on video done using just one application. Some of these main features are capture of videos from DV and web cameras, format conversion as needed by the device on which the video is going to play. That includes devices like the iPod, Zune, PSP or a PDA.
Editorial changes like storyboarding, transitions, effects, splitting and splicing of video pieces and adding filters help produce professional quality video productions. Old home movies can spruced up with professional filters. Creation of DVD menus is another piece in the production process that is helpful. Creating a video postcard or a simple video mail is easy too with this application. And then to round up the facilities a CD/DVD burning facility that can burn audio/video CD, DVD, VCD, SVCD and so on.
Cons: MP3 audio CD burning facility is a burning need these days. Similarly Blu-ray support is a clear need, now that the format war for the HD videos are finally over.
Overall a 4 star package.
