I was pleased with the results of last night’s episode of “On the Lot“. I think America got it right and am excited about the remaining directors.
This just in from Jake Ludington: Roxio is well known for making video tools. Their Easy Media Creator suite is a popular solution for editing movies, photos and audio. For some things, like quickly preparing a file for upload to YouTube, a full-fledged editing suite can be more software than you need. Enter Roxio Buzz – an editing tool for quickly cliping a portion of video for upload to YouTube, GoFish, Silverlight, or all three at the same time. The free version of the software supports WMV, AVI, MPEG-1, and QuickTime MOV files. There are additional licensing fees associated with MPEG-2 and various implementations of MPEG-4, like 3gp and h.264, which is why these aren’t included as part of the free solution. For photo slideshows, you can add pan and zoom motion, apply transitions and layer a soundtrack underneath images prior to uploading. While Roxio Buzz does not replace traditional editing tools, it is a nice tool for people who prefer a quick solution for getting their favorite clips from a hard drive to the Web for sharing. It’s worth noting that Roxio Easy Media Creator users should refrain from installing Roxio Buzz at this point because the two have compatibility issues. [Windows 2000/XP/Vista $0.00]
