Review (November 2003)
Do you have old video tapes lying around that you wish could be viewed on your DVD player? With so many older video formats it becomes a concern for those priceless memories sitting on the shelf or in boxes on aging analog tape. If you're like most camera owners, you probably have an older model that produces decent-quality tapes, but the tape format is inherently limited and susceptible to dropouts. Many of these recording should really be transferred to DVD as a backup and as a convenient way of watching the movies. In addition, the DVD format offers the capability to add menus and provides random access. InterVideo has introduced WinDVD Creator 2, an easy to use application that captures video, allows editing and menu creation and burns the content to CD, DVD or your hard drive. The four step process (capture, edit, author and burn) is easy to follow and is very intuitive for those who have some experience with similar software CD/DVD creation products.
The software supports Storyboard and Timeline editing. Much like making Hollywood movies, the Storyboard gives the user a visual timeline of the events as well as the transitions and effects that occur. It works well and provides virtually instant feedback without having to wait for the rendering process. Voice narration and/or background music can easily be added using the Audio Mixer feature. We particularly liked the transition and effects that give the presentation a professional look. Once the project is ready, the user can simply preview the content to make sure it looks correct.
