    Subject line says it all. Is there anyone out there who has used this
    product and can comment on its worth compared with similar products.

    I'm another refugee from Studio - looking for a product that is both
    affordable and that works.

  2. This program has been discussed here in the last few weeks, so let
    Google be your friend, and search a bit in Groups. I am sure that your
    questions will be answered there :) And of course, if you got more
    questions, you can always ask back here, as there is plenty of
    expertise here :)

    Let`s Edit RT+ was reviewed in Computer Video magazine (UK) Feb 2004, won
    awards for Innovation and Editors Choice.

    I hate that word "innovation". It usually means that the product doesn't
    do what it should be doing :)

    I'm using Let's Edit RT+ and find it an exceptional card and program. The card
    installed without any issues, the software is both easy to use and stable.
    Canopus is well known for its engineering capabilities in video editing. They
    have a forum dedicated to Let's Edit users that you can visit and see how
    various issues are addressed.

    I have a G5 mac (10.3.1) with internal super drive. I just finished my first
    video, produced on Final Cut Express. I can export it as a QT movie or FCE
    movie and Quicktime will play it.

    When I import it into iDVD4 and try to burn it, the system gets as far as
    stage four multiplexing and either sits there for hours or iDVD4 quits.

    The iDVD sample movie burns on the G5 superdrive with no problem.

    Apple says it's probably either.

    1. The ADS Pyro A/V breakout box I'm using to dump the video into the Mac.
    2. The VHS deck I'm using to dump the video into the ADS box.
    3. A video file or two that's become mangled and is causing the burp. (I
    should re digitize the footage and try again.)

    As I go into 2nd layer detective mode, does anyone have any helpful info?

    Mr Morgan has obviously never read a Computer Video magazine review, if
    something doesn't do what it is meant to do they say so in no uncertain
    manner [1] - much to the disgust of some manufactures / distributors over
    the years !

    The review might have made it onto the CV web site by now

    [1] unlike some of the other so called digital video magazines that
    basically just re-work PR press hand outs as reviews...
