Quiet day so wanted to test this just for the halibut. My rating means nothing since it should make it very clear that it won't work on XP. It just says "Windows" This program needs Vista sp2 and above with DX10.

Ease of use - of 10 Functionality - of 10 Value for money - of 10 Overall score 5 of 10


I know it's still in beta, but my experience wasn't particularly happy. I'm certainly not a "video ace", but I have a bit of experience.

I looked at the download choices and selected the portable version: I unzipped the 64-bit version in a folder and with a click, the program started just fine.

This, however, was the end of the fun. I found the interface anything but intuitive, but after LOTS of clicking around and looking at the online help >(for some reason the built-in help file was blank), I was sort of able to make a movie of myself with my webcam.

The result was lousy, though I have to confess I didn't try to modify any of the settings. One problem was that the resolution of my monitor (2560x1440) is much higher than that of my webcam, so the movie didn't fill the entire image window. Also, my graphics card (Matrox M9128) isn't particularly designed for video, so the film was choppy - although when I take movies with my digicams, the results are super. Finally, the sound - taken with the mike of my Logitech C910 webcam - was badly out of sync and started with me sounding like Frankenstein but ended with me sounding like Mickey Mouse. Weird.

Anyway, I just tried it because I had nothing to do, but it's not a program I'll look at again. Sorry. Maybe someone with more experience will have better results.
