Anyone using Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4 yet?

  1. I'm using the Standard version and really like most of what I'm
    seeing. I think it is much improved over Version 2, which I have
    had for a while before this.

    I was hoping to discuss some of the new features with others who
    are using it or are in the know.

    I've not had good luck with Ulead's VideoStudio but since I'd qualify
    for the upgrade price, I've been thinking about trying MF4 for 30 days
    to see if it's any different or better than UVS8.

    Just how do you use MF4, and what do you like about it? How does it
    compare with other authoring programs you've used?

    At the Ulead Web Board you'll find a lot of users with whom you can
    share ideas.

    The new version 4 is a lot better than the MovieFactory 2 SE I
    have used in the past. First, it has these cool shuttle editing
    controls. Like 3 or 4 of 'em now. It is much easier to scan
    through the movie to find places to trim and stuff.

    The menu creation rules over the past. You can actually move and
    resize elements of the menus, including the ability to move the
    text around just the way you want it. That is wicked cool.

    I do like the Anti-Flicker feature, and it seems to do some kind
    of thing with Field Order automatically now. I guess it can read
    in all the files, and when you decide to pick an output, like
    NTSC DVD, it sets all clips with the proper field order
    automatically. I gotta test that out.

    Multi-Trim seems easier to use, and the JOIN and SPLIT function
    thing is pretty cool. Like I can grab all 20 clips and JOIN
    them, then auto-set CHAPTERS to say every 8 minutes, then split
    them again so that the final project uses smaller 1 gig files,
    and then burn it. I use FAT32 so if I leave them all joined, it
    wants to make one huge file of like 4 gig or something.

    I do wish there was a way to set it so that you could say "Max
    size" for the final VOB files.

    Anyway, so far, so good. I'm going to keep messing with it.
    There is a LOT of new stuff for someone upgrading from Version 2.
