The Audio programs are used to create WAV, MP3 or WMA music CDs. The MP3 Application has a capacity needle at the lower area of the window that lets the user know how a great deal space is used on the Disc as it fills up with files. This helps the user know the accurate space required when making a CD. Users can also record Live Audio directly to disc. CD Extra discs can be created using the uncomplicated interface. An NTI Wave Editor and Audio Player are included in the package.
The Data programs provide users with the facility to create CD or DVD data discs. This is mainly useful for backing up large amounts of important data onto disc. We liked the ability to store large amounts of data onto DVD (4.7 GB on single layer and 8.5 GB on dual layer discs). diverse Mode CDs can also be created in this area. When using the Mixed Mode CD format, the first session can contain up to 98 audio tracks and second session contains the data track. These discs offer outstanding compatibility with both audio-only players as well as CDROM drives in computers.
The Video programs are used to generate Video CDs and Super VCDs. NTI's Cinematic Video offers users a trouble-free way to spice up video by having the software create transitions and effects on the original content. HomeVideo-Maker is a powerful application designed to capture, edit and create video discs with support for menus and sub menus. The best part about this program is NTI makes it easy to foretaste the disc to see how the menu system will work before burning the disc. The Home Video-Maker software has some excellent features that are quite perceptive. Also included is the DVD Fit application, which is designed to automatically apply pressure video to fit on a single DVD in cases where the source files are much larger than the target disc capacity. NTI also threw in their DVD player.
The Photo programs include Photo Disc, Slideshow VCD, Slideshow SVCD, and Cinematic Slideshow™. Photo Discs simply include a series of JPEG files and are similar in temperament with newer DVD players and all computers with CDROM drives. The VCD and SVCD Slideshow programs are designed to create video from a series of still images. Background audio can also be added to the video for a custom presentation. The Cinematic Slideshow allows user to takes a series of photos and create a wonderful presentation. Once the disc is burned, the user can select the Jewel Case Maker application for either standard (12 cm) discs or Mini (8 cm) discs.
that allows users to easily pick files for archiving the software automatically spans the data to multiple discs if required. The program can compare archived files to identify differences and can even backup and restore to a remote server.
The Copy program is capable of duplicating CD or DVD (non-copy protected) media to or from a disc or image. This is a enormous utility for making multiple copies of a disc. We used it to duplicate the kids DVD videos for family.
We illustration most of the programs included with the CD& DVD-Maker™ 7 Titanium Suite (there are many) including the backup tools for CD and DVD. Much of our spotlight was on the Home Video-Maker application that allows users to quickly create a DVD complete with menus. The quick preview ability was excellent and saves users time when making their own tradition movies. We connected our JVC Mini DV camcorder to our PC using a IEEE-1394 cable and the software immediately recognized the device. Transferring our home video to the hard drive for editing was a gust and the Home Video-Maker software worked well. We were able to quickly create a DVD of our favorite moments.
Another huge set of applications is the Slideshow VCD and Slideshow SVCD that allows users to take a sequence of still pictures and create an impressive video presentation with background music targeting VCD or SVCD. The playing time for each still picture is user modifiable. The Cinematic Slideshow is a great method to spice up what would normally be a simple series of slides with music. The software automatically creates movement through the still pictures, which produces an attractive cinematic effect.
The DVD and CD backup application was also very useful and easy to use. We took some of our custom home videos of the kids and were able to quickly make duplicates for the family. Making CD copies of our VCD and SVCD Slideshows was just as effortless.
The CD & DVD-Maker™ 7 Titanium Suite offers a powerful set of tools for both CD and DVD media. Users can rapidly capture and edit video, create music discs, listen to MP3s, watch videos, backup data and much more all with this one product. The user interface is simple and the product achieves great results based on what we have tested. What is most amazing is that the entire software package is available for under $80. We've seen far less capable products cost considerably more than the CD & DVD-Maker™ 7 Titanium Suite.
