Roxio Creator 2012
Roxio's do-everything media suite gains powerful 3D features

Roxio Creator 2012 is a mammoth media suite that comes packed with disc burning, media editing, video, audio and photo-related functionality.

There are tools for burning audio discs, data CDs and DVDs, or working with disc images, for instance. Roxio's video editor now includes video stabilisation, to compensate for shaky camera work. You're able to burn attractive video DVDs, and there's full support for 3D, with the program capable of converting 2D images and movies to 3D versions in a variety of formats.

The 2012 version isn't quite as revolutionary as previous versions, but adds a handful of new features and effects, including the ability to both create and convert DivX video. There are also eight new Hollywood-style effects for your videos such as fire, fairy dust and fog, plus 50 professional (and now royalty free) background music tracks for using as soundtracks to your home movies and photo slideshows.

Another interesting inclusion is a portrait photo improvement tool, but this surprisingly doesn't find itself incorporated into the main Roxio PhotoSuite tool; instead Roxio has opted to simply bundle a copy of Reallusion's FaceFilter Studio 2, which needs installing separately after the main software has been loaded. It's certainly a welcome inclusion - the original sells for $60.

Beyond what's new, there are so many more features, everywhere you look: modules to digitize your old vinyl albums or tapes; easily edit and clean up audio files; convert your videos into formats that you can play on portable devices like the iPhone, iPod or BlackBerry; create panoramas or photo slideshows; capture streaming audio or video; even share your media collection across the internet, so (for instance) you can access your music files from almost anywhere in the world.

Note that there is no trial version of Roxio Creator 2012. It's purchase-only. This download article is included for reference purposes only and the download link on this page will take you to the store.

Verdict:

There's a question mark over whether it's an essential upgrade from the 2011 build, but Roxio Creator 2012 continues to evolve as a feature-rich and effective media tool.

Roxio 2012

Posted by: Carroll MacDonald, 05 June 2012 02:25

One of my most used programs. I've been using Roxio for a long time, since before version 9... and my favorite tool that I use nearly daily is the VidoeWave and SmartSound. I do a lot of video editing and I create 100's of videos out of the Rendered images I create in Mandelbulb 3D. There are a ton of tools for recording, backup, creating MP3 CD's and many many more.

Two Thumbs Up, and keep up the great quality of software!

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
