I have been a loyal Roxio user for over ten years. I started with Roxio 7.0 way back when. I have paid many for upgrades over the years. Each upgrade seemed to have new features and a little better functionality. That was until I upgraded to Roxio Creator NXT Pro in 2012. That program seemed to have a lot of glitches, but I always found a way to work around them. I was used to using Roxio and was not inclined to try to learn a new program.
Then came Windows 10. Roxio Creator NXT Pro just would not run on Windows 10. It was time to upgrade to Roxio Creator NXT 5 Pro, which I did a few weeks ago. As far as I'm concerned, Roxio Creator NXT 5 Pro is a huge disappointment. I don't know which version it started with, but now in MYDVD, I can no longer create my own menu screens with audio over thirty seconds long. Roxio Technical Support says that function is no longer available. I thought the word Creator meant you could use your own creativity to create unique things in the program. I guess I don't know the meaning of the word Create
In my old Roxio Creator NXT Pro, while using Videowave, I could use .mts videos directly from my digital camera. Videowave automatically changed the format of the video to .mpg, and life went on. No more. I tried to use a .mts video file that my old Roxio Creator NXT Pro had formatted to a .mpg file, which worked perfect in that version of Videowave, and could not get the audio to play. Once again, I have an UPGRADED program with less functionality. And of course, Roxio Technical Support's answer was "that function is no longer available."
As I said, I've only been using this program for a few weeks. I have no idea how many more downgrades I am going to encounter moving forward.
How can Roxio/Corel sell UPGRADED versions of their programs that are a downgrade to their programs that they are replacing. From my standpoint, this is the last Roxio/Corel product I will purchase. I believe I have been cheated. It's hard for me to imagine that the sales staff and program developers can actually get a good night sleep. They should be ashamed of themselves. Time to find another slideshow program.
