The EMC9 Suites are a good, decent value if you take advantage of rebates, sales etc. They include separate programs from different vendors -- if you buy the download they're all tied together in a single installation file that's not without issues... Before you buy see Roxio's web boards for a sampling of complaints including irritating bugs in the Macrovision software routine used to activate the mpg2 codec.
No offense to anyone intended, but I'm not aware of too many people who keep the notoriously trouble-prone drag/drop app installed -- it's a separate step to remove after EMC9 installation. Otherwise everything works in Vista except Soundsoap, which will not install, & DivX, which is not fully compatible yet. Roxio sells two versions of the EMC9 Suite, and the Deluxe version includes more software plus a Dazzle DVC90 USB capture device [no tuner or hardware encoding]. Beta Vista drivers, once you find them, are buggy -- often you won't get audio.
The video part of the suite is in my opinion best left alone unless you're just starting out. The capture app uses 3 presets for mpg2 only. The Copy app trims, transcodes, & re-encodes to a muxed file, but lacks the ability to select mpg2 I frames. It will also re-encode mpg2 *unless* your source is VOB files. Copy is also used to burn DVD folders on your hdd. MyDVD is integrated with Videowave, and works, but is too crippled for anything but very simple DVD menus; it writes unusual IFO files so editing the results is iffy. Unlike most DVD authoring software, MyDVD/Videowave doesn't like separate video and audio streams. Videowave converts dvr-ms well, but if you work with full frame avi files, you can't set their PAR to fill the frame without distortion. Nor can you set field order -- Videowave assumes mpg2 = lower first & encodes that way. Cutting &/or joining mpg2 sort of almost works -- the audio will have to be fixed, edits will be re-encoded to the nearest I frame, & the re-encoded parts will be lower field 1st, probably leaving you with a file that has mixed field orders.
IN a nutshell, if you want a full burning program, if you can use some of the bundled programs like DivX, & if you take advantage of rebates &/or sale pricing, it's not a bad deal [I'd expect that since the full Nero 7 can now be had for $0 after rebate, bigger & better savings are on the way]. Don't buy it for the Sonic video apps. Don't buy it for what it might do in the future either. EMC9 & Nero 7 have been out for quite a while now, I'd guess they'd both be working on new versions for the fall, so in my opinion buying EMC9 based on promises of any fixes might be a bit naive.
Straight out of the box Version 9.0 will not perform as advertized with Vista. Many users have reported no problems with the product, but they don't install the whole package. Even Roxio acknowledges that their Drag and Drop does not behave with Vista. They have been promising a patch to fix the problems and make it certified for Vista for months now. It is a great product, but I would not purchase it from any vender other then Roxio direct. They have the 9.1 version which is Vista friendly. If you still have XP, this is a superior product.
