CREATING AUDIO VISUAL PRODUCTIONS
Once you have created a collection of tidied-up photos, why not make an animated slide show? The StoryBoard feature in Creator 7 is actually part of a major top level Creator 7 component called VideoWave 7.
VideoWave is for editing and joining sequences that have a time line, including video clips and slide shows
This is a tool for creating assembling the audio visual content of a presentation or movie. The StoryBoard aspect of VideoWave 7 provides the means to order your images, select animated fades and wipes between pictures, set the inter-frame time delays, add soundtracks – even add a voice commentary, etc. If you feel you need more help, the StoryBuilder feature makes the process of creating a production use a guided step by step approach.
StoryBoard can construct very competent animated slide shows with background music
You aren't limited to still images with StoryBoard – video clips can be included as well. Once the show has been completed, you can export it as an intermediate file compatible with another Creator 7 component, DVD Builder.
DVD Builder is the final tool you'll need to in preparation for creating your own multimedia CD or DVD
With DVD Builder you can create discs that should be compatible with most digital A/V disc players using the standards Video CD (VCD), Super Video CD (SVCD), DVD on CD and full-blown DVD. Incidentally, a version of CineMagic is included for hands-free automatic movie editing.
Another Creator 7 component, Roxio Player, is provided for viewing productions created in any of the above formats. It's not, however, a player suitable for copy-protected commercial DVDs.
Away from imaging, you also get a stereo digital audio editor. Tools are included for creating standard MP3 digital music tracks using conventional music CDs as masters. You can also create your own audio CDs and duplicate CDs – observing copyright regulations, naturally.
Be your own digital sound recordist
Once again, the Creator 7 sound editor isn't necessarily going to satisfy a professional sound engineer, but what it does, it does OK.
Roxio also provides access to the, now-legalised Napster online digital music track previewing and purchasing service.
These days it's almost easy to overlook the utilities that started the original Easy CD Creator package – copying data files to CD or DVD (write once and rewritable) for archiving or distribution. We take them for granted, but most commonly used recordable CD and DVD formats and associated hardware are supported, even the much-maligned DVD RAM standard, though this is only supported through the Drag to Disc feature. Creator 7 also helps you create hard drive back up to CD or DVD projects. Label design software for printable discs is also included.
