Greetings,
This is too late for sales but I just upgraded from 2012 to NXT2. I do not see any difference in User Interface, features, options or speed of video conversion. Even the conversion formats offered are the same as 2012. I would have thought that by year 2014 Roxio would have some options for HD Youtube upload prep or other high quality conversions. The list of options looks unchanged from 2012. One reason I upgraded was some hype on the sales screen that conversions are 10x faster and I was looking forward to that as I have over 100 movies to edit and save, but as far as I can tell they grind along at the same speed as with 2012. What am I missing? I even checked the "help" button to make sure 2012 wasn't still running.

Did you look at the sales blurb? Here Never believe all you read. Rendering (encoding speed) is dependent on your computer, other running programs, health of your computer, etc. Some people will see differences, others will not. NXT2 is a 32 bit program (runs on 64 bit systems) but is limited by the 32 bit design. Please post the information on your computer (dxdiag.exe) text file. Follow these instructions. Perhaps we can offer some suggestions like updating your video drivers and using hardware encode.

I also refer you to this post. Most of Creator 2012 was removed when you installed NXT 2

For HD, you must select 16 by 9 when you are creating a new project, add your files and do the editing. Then select to output the video to your choice. Perhaps you missed that. It is the same as Creator 2012.

When did you buy the product? Did you buy it from Roxio's On-line store?

Thank you for your reply, it did explain some things. For example due to the native size of the video I am woking with I am creating as 4:3, not 16:9 so maybe that is why I don't see other saving options. I bought today, direct from Roxio on an upgrade page: I will attach the computer specs and if you have any other suggestions to add feel free.

I guess that I had also expected a spiffed up user interface after two years, but it looks identical. So with the same UI, same apparent speed, same options, I'm really not sure at this point what I got that I didn't already have. Probably should have saved the $69 and/or done a little more research before buying.
Thanks,
John

Perhaps you can get your $69 back. I still run Creator 2012 on this desktop (I run Creator NXT2 on an Alienware laptop.)

Set your DPI to 100% 96 DPI , yours is set higher and that sometimes screws up the display of the program. Update your the video card driver directly from ATI. Your driver is very old in terms of driver lifetimes. i Usually not needed but you may also want to update the drives for your audio device (from Dell would be OK.)

Your large hard drive needs attention. Have you considered formatting it to several partitions? Make sure you do regular maintenance on it - get rid of junk files, unused and trial programs and defrag (often) If that were a solid state drive, you would not need to do the defrag.

NO video with a 4 by 3 is High Definition (99% of the time) so why are you worried about the HD options?

I don't see all output options in videowave when the DPI setting is above 96 DPI 100%!

I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

Hi again skns, You have been helpful so I am coming back to you with a question that maybe belongs in another section. I just went to capture some audio from the sound card as I used to do all the time with ver 2012 and the Audi tab only brings up the same options as the video tab - see attached screenshot. Any ideas?
Thanks, John

Did you install Nxt 2 when C2012 was still installed on your PC?

Mine looks OK and gives me what I expected. Looks like your installation is screwed up, Turn off your anti-virus , put the disc in your disc reader and select repair (or similar).

The problem resolved itself in SLOJES' other topic.
