To begin with, I absolutely love this program....if it would only work for what I want to do. It captures my video/audio from an analog source quite well for analog. After editing I was able to output back to tape with outstanding quality. I agree it is slow, but if you have a newer computer (over 2 Ghz) it doesn't run that bad. BUT if you want to create DVD's, I would not recommend this program. I like all the options you get with the menus, you can basically create them any way you want along with rearanging the buttons to anywhere on the screen (a feature I cannot find in any other program), but somewhere during the rendering process the audio falls about 30 seconds behind the video, leaving you with a bad DVD. I have tried maybe 10 programs now, none of which work the way I want, so maybe its just a problem I'm having but its a brand new computer so I don't think so. Technical Support is a little slow over e-mail, but they do help you out. Everything they suggested didn't work and I noticed that after my last response my case got marked "Unresolved" and I never got a response. My guess - they don't know either. If you want to give this program a try - go ahead, but be aware it may not work.
