"The Easiest Way to Create Hollywood-Style Movie Discs"
Yeah, right.
Hollywood-style movie disks have menu options for special features, and have separate tracks to pick from in a sub-menu. If you can only put one track on the menu, it is not a hollywood style movie disk. And if you can only have one track, what's the point of having a menu? And why would someone pay $50+ for this?

I have used Power Producer for a year or year & a half. First problem I had was installing software. Drove me crazy. You need to shut down all Virus software to install. Customer Nonservice never replied to my request. You are prettty much on your own.
I think I paid about $60 or $70 for the Suite.
PP3 does not let you choose screen formats that I have found.
It also doen not have Blu-ray Disc choice.
I have had very good luck with the Video Sound synch. Never had a problem. I have put VCR on DVD by using a DVD+RW recorder.(ILO). In the 2 hour mode it looks good. I use DVD Decrypter to rip to hard drive. I edit with Power Producer.
If you splice one or more files together you need PowerDirector Express to edit out the chapters. It will leave you with 1 chapter. This is helpful if you put more than 1 movie on A DVD. It takes about 30 seconds to do this. The biggest problem is the menu's. Depending on how many Chapters and other factors, some menu's will not work. It get's really fustrating when you have to reprocess several times to get the menu's right. You can also use your own background pictures if you like. It is picky about the size of the jpg's though.
I have never been able to produce one without a Menu.
You can use PowerDVD to look at the saved final output after you have processed and before you burn it to disc.
I usually use the smart fit video quality to fill a disc.
I create a DVD folder, then use Roxio 7 Disc copier to burn to DVD.
Roxio 7 can re encode 4.6GB in about 3 minutes before it starts burning. If it is larger it can take about 15 minutes. Still one of the fastest programs I have found.
Overall a pretty good program with a pretty long learning curve that improves with trial and error.I just wish there were better help files and customer support.

Review by redneck572 on Jun 30, 2007 Version: 3 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 6/10

I started to use this software when it was in version 2.

The versions 3 and version 4 add great features to the product.

For example, version 4 allow to encode Blu-Ray and HD-DVD disks.

The great problem with this software is the encoder.

It encodes movies using Codecs of DirectX and needs to have Internet Explorer installed on machine. No problem until you
have a great number of codecs installed on machine (like KLite Codec Pack)

With a great number of codecs don't even think to use version 3 or 4.

It will freeze and/or create poor quality videos (videos appears to be in slow motion - frames are missing).

The great number of codecs doesn't affect video quality in version 2, but it is so basic and doesn't have a great number of features present in version 3 and 4.

In all versions of PowerProducer, the user doesn't have control in the creation of the DVD menu. Almost all things of menu are created automatically and, generality, you need to use third part software (like PGCEdit) to re-edit the menus created by the software.

For example, if you create chapters in the DVD, the software will create chapters menus and you can't avoid this without exclude all menus of disc project.

A positive aspect of PowerProducer is the edition of video source (file or captured video) used to produce DVD.

You can add, split, combine, remove parts and do another things with video directly in the software.

The creation of chapters in PowerDVD is too more precise than other softwares.

Until recently I was using PowerProducer to produce my DVDs and was solving the problem with the menus using PGCEdit.

After compatibility problem with codecs appears I decided to change to another tool, since I can't solve this bug with Cyberlink support.

Review by Ilanio on May 4, 2007 Version: 4.0 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 6/10

Came as a software package with my LG 4167 DVD burner. All I got to say is that this 'junk' software almost made me want to return the burner alltogether. I tried to install it 6 times and it would not run even once. It shows that the process for it is started in the task manager and that's as far as it goes. Their support has no solution for me except "You have to try and reinstall it and if it's still does not work you have to fix your system and it is not our problem".

5 hours of frustration and no result at the end. Hopefully I find a better tool. Any recommendations ?

Review by molodoi on Jan 29, 2006 Version: 3 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

This software requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or later. I therefore find it unsuitable, especially as part of the application suite for the LG GSA-5163D Firewire/USB2 DL burner. Software for this external burner needs to be installed on each computer with which it is used, and thus should be as streamlined as possible. The only remark I was able to find was from a German guy who noted that the Cyberlink installer required IE 5.5, and provided a version which also installed the deprecated Outlook Express, in order to further install not only PowerProducer 2 Gold (which does require IE 5.5), but also PowerDVD and Nero Express (which don't require IE). His comment: "Ack!" translates easily.

This software attempts to connect to the internet, then provides a message "Please download the IE 5.5 above" (sic), then crashes (PowerProducer has generated errors and will be closed by Windows...). XPlite / 2000lite really did protect me from allowing IE to complete its installation. The behaviour is identical with both the patched and unpatched versions.

The vendor's system requirements do not mention IE, though IE is mentioned in regard to the PowerProducer 3 software. The same page says that the software requires a 450 MHz P II minimum to do anything, so I plan to uninstall it from my 366 MHz laptop. I may try installing it in a desktop machine, but there again the requirement of having IE is a disincentive.
