Yup, I bought the Creator from eBay. The MYDVD 9 studio I got, new in the package from the local thrift store and except for the slow mo and speed up missing, it works quite nicely. I only bought the creator because I thought it would include the Time Warp feature. Lots of nice transitions etc. I do have Windows Movie Maker on my computer and have used that alot, but it lacks in the text effects. It does have speed controls though. I also have an older version of Pinnacle that I had bought new back in 06, and it has great text effects, better than any of the others, but like the Roxio programs doesn't have slow mo or speed up, without spending another $60 for the add on. If I am going to spend that much I might as well get a complete up to date program with all the bells and whistles included.
Thanks so much for all your help. Now I just need to decide what to do with it all and what direction to go.
