Is Roxio Creator More than Just a Disc Burner?
Roxio Creator Product Summary
The Roxio Creator, with its latest release in 2010, is actually part of a suite of entertainment related software, particularly for burning optical discs. But aside from this capability, Roxio Creator does ore – it also lets you make professional-looking disc menus, labels, and the like with the aid of its ready-made templates and suggestions. This is a clear departure from the earlier versions of the Roxio Creator, which only burned discs. This latest release of the Creator improves on both the interface and feature set of the preceding versions, and is also noticeably more expensive.
Roxio Creator Features
The latest release of the Roxio Creator can now do more things than its predecessors, which were only exclusive to disc burning. The Roxio Creator includes features that let you rip music CDs from the drive directly, as well as or burn CDs from music files present in your hard drive. The program supports almost all popular music formats, including WMA, WAV, MP3, and a lot more. Transferring music from your PC to a portable device and vice versa is also possible through the Creator.
Other features included in the Creator are a media manager that organizes all media files present in your computer, a label maker for CDs and a feature that allows you to make audio books. The Creator has also branched out into video and photo, as you can now edit, burn and capture videos, as well as enhance, edit and share pictures. The software also has a bundled CinePlayer that allows you to watch movies.
Roxio Creator User Interface
Roxio Creator has made its design and user interface more friendly than the already easy-to-use interface in the previous versions. Instructions are also present to make using the features easier. There are titled tags in the left navigation screen that allow you to navigate each section of the software faster. Roxio Creator also allows you to drag and drop all components you may use, such as tracks, files and folders, so using the program will be easier even for those using it for the first time.
Roxio Creator Software Review
The new version of the Roxio Creator shows improvements on its more comprehensive abilities and its professional-looking templates and content. The ready-made implements in the software can actually be used and not just placed for show.
Be ready to pay additional compared to the previous versions of the Creator, though. Additional features like the Blu-ray plug-ins would also incur additional costs should you choose to take advantage of them. Moreover, the additional features and modules have made it more complex.
