Emc 8 Options

Question

I'm about to buy EMC8 but Amazon offer two versions - the "Suite" & "Essentials". What's the difference? Do they both feature Photosuite 7?

Didn't realize that there was an essential version of V 8; are you sure it wasn't MyDVD essentials? Don't know what is in that. EMC V8 contains Photosuite 8, an update to V 7.

DEfinitely EC8. I'm in The UK, so maybe it's a regional thing. Anyway, I've now ordered the Essentials version. I'll let you know what I get.

No it isn't limited to the UK.

 

It is a new marketing ploy to split the product into a 'lite' version and a 'full' version. I have no details but if you want everything to work, buy the one that costs the most.

Creator Essentials is a lower-priced version which includes a subset of the functionality included in Creator 8 Suite.

 

Creator 8 Essentials includes only the following apps:

 

* Creator Classic / Roxio Retrieve

* Drag-to-Disc

* DVD Info Pro

* Label Creator / Express Labeler

* Media Import

* Media Manager

* MyDVD (limited functionality)

* PhotoSuite (limited functionality)

* RecordNow Audio/Data/Copy (Burning from Home)

* VideoWave (limited functionality)

 

In addition to only including the above applications, some are not as fully featured as EMC 8 Suite.

 

Since you mention PhotoSuite, the following PhotoSuite functionality does not exist in Essentials but DO exist in EMC 8 Suite:

 

- Photo Task Assistants

- Exporting to slideshow

- Project content

- Paint brush tools

- Clip art

- Saturation, Sharpness and Tint fix

- Wrinkle, Blemish, Dust and Scratch fix

- Rotate (precise), Flip and Resize

- Flood Fill and fill effect

- Predefined and custom shape tools

- Freehand/mask cutout

- Mask/cutout by shape, color, edge tracing

- Enhance Tab (Transparency, edge fading, edit calendar text, frame, mat, edge)

I'm guessing that the version I bought off Roxio's Web site back in October is the Suite and not the Essential version, am I correct? I only ask due to the number of items that are greyed out in the MyDVD section (may be unrelated I guess). Thanks.

:) like others, I was unaware of emc8 Essentials as there is no mention of this on the Roxio productslist or the on the website of the supplier from whom I bought it.

Is it possible to upgrade from Essentials to the full Suite. If so, how and how much?

Sorry people who come here do not work for Roxio. The question you are asking should be asked of Roxio sales. Use the link to the left and give them a call.
