I have been using Roxio software since before the Roxio 7.5 version many years ago to produce videos and have been upgrading to the most recent versions because of having to update my computer to Windows 10. I have found that Videowave (which I have used most over the years) is still in the same format and this is wonderful because I want to control every aspect of the videos I produce. (See my YouTube channel: travldtwoseven).
I have been experimenting with my latest version (CREATOR NXT PRO 5) and it appears Videowave is the same as previous versions of Roxio. THANK HEAVENS! However, I am very disappointed that MyDVD seems to be very user unfriendly. I loved the old version in CREATOR 2010 PRO (which, thankfully, I have running along side this new version). The menus in Creator Pro 2010 could be changed to either include or not include music; the background could be changed; I could make ALL of the videos to play thru (can't find that now) or click on each one to play individually............ so many aspects of CREATOR 2010 PRO (MyDVD) seem to have been eliminated from the new CREATOR NXT PRO 5.
I have no idea how to get from the "Magic Mode" to the "Advanced Mode" because every time I actually access the Advanced Mode, I am returned to the "Magic Mode"...........
MY ADVICE TO ANYONE WANTING TO UPGRADE IS TO "KEEP YOUR OLDER VERSION UNTIL YOU SEE WHAT THE NEW VERSION CONTAINS".
I have been experimenting with burning DVDs from .mpeg .mp4 files on my computer and the new MyDVD always fails when ready to actually burn the DVD. Error message 2147500035, cannot burn DVD.
My computer system: Windows 10, Intel Core i7 CPU, firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 2.79 GHz; RAM 8.00 GB, 64 bit
Not being a techie, I do not know what all this means; however, I do know that I had no problems with previous versions of ROXIO CREATOR PRO 2010. either with Videowave or MyDVD when I had Windows 7.
My suggestion to the Roxio staff is: Please make MyDVD work as it did in CREATOR 2010 PRO.
I want to edit the background of my menu, eliminate sound, and enable one click of the menu to play thru the entire production.
THANK YOU TO WHOMEVER READS THIS ON THE ROXIO STAFF............
I am also a Corel user from years back and also had to get new software for WordPerfect to work with Windows 10.... my "go to" word processing!!!
