"Features excellent "after" you get your files on your PC."2.5 starson by robertz1200
Pros: Nice features and effects.
Cons: Lousy interface to capture anything other than FireWire.
Summary: This software package and my Canon DC40 DVD Camcorder just won't work together. No matter what you do to this title to try and find your device, it just doesn't like anything other than a 1394 FireWire connection! I've installed a high speed USB port along with cable and it still won't even look for a USB connection or its device. It finds my ancient logitech web cam though which is about 5 years old which is infuriating to say the least.
AFTER you finally get your files from your DV device is when you can finally enjoy yourself. The features are there, pretty intuative even for a casual user.
Warning - be sure you have enough graphic card memory and overall memory. Until I upgraded to a 256 card and 1gig mem, it locked up continuously.
