5-0 out of 5 stars Great Solution to Ambient Noise Problems
Have you shot video and later discovered the hum of an air conditioner or other noise affecting your sound? As you probably know, audiences will forgive some mistakes in video, but they have a harder time forgiving bad sound. Enter SoundSoap from Bias, Inc. ItÕs a $99.00 application that will remove hum, hiss, buzz and rumble from your soundtrack(s).

If you are using a camcorder, video editing software, audio CD burning software, a digital audio workstation, or other multimedia application, SoundSoap can really help you remove the bad ambient noises.

I tried it on a couple of videos. One was my Òtalking headÓ that I did with my iSight Camera using iMovie. My voice was way too quiet and the sound had a lot of Òstatic.Ó (I used Peak Ð also from Bias Ð to boost my voice.) The other was some video of my son and his bride dancing their first dance at the wedding reception. There were lots of clinking dishes, extra voices, etc.

In both cases, the sound was greatly improved! SoundSoap simply and quickly did a VERY complex task Ð analyzing my sound and removing only the offending noise!

SoundSoap ships as both a standalone application, and a plug-in compatible with any DirectX or VST host program - including Adobe Premiere, BIAS Peak, CakewalkÕs SONAR, Guitar Tracks Pro, Home Studio, Music Creator, MediaWorks and Pyro 2004, Sonic FoundryÕs Sound Forge and Vegas Video SteinbergÕs Nuendo, Cubase SX/SL and Wavelab. SoundSoapÕs workspace is simple and uncluttered.

It cleverly removes hiss, hum & buzzing, rumble & most other noise, without harming the audio you wish to preserve. SoundSoap has a one-step ÒLearn NoiseÓ button to sample and automatically reduce noise. It also provides manual controls for trickier applications. Like Peak, the standalone version works with any QuickTime-compatible audio or video file (AVI, DV, .WAV, SDII, AIFF, MP3, MP4 & dozens more).

My favorite feature is a ÒPreserve VoiceÓ button that protects the range of the human voice while removing noise (and other audio). The hum removal is optimized for 60 Hertz (North America, etc.) or 50 Hertz (Europe, Australia, etc.). You click on a button to choose which one to use. And the ÒNoise OnlyÓ mode lets you listen only to the noise being removed, making it easier to fine-tune SoundSoapÕs controls.

SoundSoap is a great, inexpensive solution to ambient noise problems, particularly those picked up by a camcorder. Get more info or purchase it at http://www.bias-inc.com. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Despite a few quirks, any die-hard 'N Sync fan will certainly go gagaover the 'N Sync Hotline Fantasy Phone and CD-ROM Game. After all, whatyoung girl wouldn't swoon over Justin Timberlake calling at bedtime to say, "Hi,it's Justin. I just called to say goodnight, sleep tight, and don't let thebedbugs bite"? Yes, this unique combination toy cell phone and interactive gamelets you receive virtual calls and special messages from all the 'N Sync boys,as well as play a handful of games featuring none other than Justin, Lance, JC,Joey, and Chris.

The phone itself is the main attraction. After connecting it to the game port onyour computer with the included cable, you tell the program your name, thenenter your birthday and bedtime, and you'll receive personalized messages atthese times. You can also download up to five messages at a time from any of theband members (out of dozens of possible messages from each guy), and you'll getperiodic calls from them. Or, if you don't answer the phone right away, themessages will be delivered to your "voice mail" where you can listen to themlater. You can also call each member of the band and ask the guys "yes" or "no"questions, à la Magic Eight Ball. If you're exceptionally creative orsilly, this can be the most amusing part of the game.

The five games for your PC, on the other hand, are nothing short of strange (orstupid, depending on how you look at it) and anyone will probably quickly tireof playing them. In the bowling game, for example, you send a ball down the laneto hit bowling pins that have the heads of the 'N Sync guys. If you knock themover or land your ball in the gutter, they'll either congratulate you on yourskills or make fun of you. We found it nearly impossible to knock over all thepins, and quickly irritating, no matter how dreamy we thought a miniJustin-headed bowling pin was. And, though not necessary, you can use the phone as acontroller for all the games while it's connected to the computer. However,after fumbling around with the controls, we found it much easier to just use thekeyboard and mouse.

The best of the pack is the trivia game, which is pretty cut-and-dry. The gameasks questions about the members of the band, and you have to guess what Joey'sfavorite color is or which guy likes French fries. Some of the trivia is prettyjuicy, and some just plain weird. The only reward for completing these games isa new message from the guys that you can download to your phone.

But, being forgiving 'N Sync fans ourselves, we found the phone to be prettycool, generally entertaining, and something we consistently want to show off toour friends. (Ages 8 and older) --Ara Jane Olufson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great fun for the *NSYNC fan!
The *NSYNC Fantasy Phone and CD Rom game is GREAT! I am an...um hum...older...fan of *NSYNC and love this game and phone. It comes with a plug to insert in your SoundCard and into the phone (note: phone needs 3 AAA batteries not included). You set up the phone with your name and birthday and bedtime (you get a message from your favorite *NSYNCer at bedtime!) You can set up your phone to receive up to about 4 selected 'messages' from the guys. You are permitted to listen to each message and then download the ones you want. You can change the messages each day or keep the same ones. The CD is 5 games: Bowling (the guys are 5 of the pins and they are funny), Make a Move (you follow the guys dancing), Trivia (fun facts), Quick Change (change their clothes to match within a specific time) and Charity Challenge (you blow the guys kisses from a Nerf like gun). You can select the difficulty level in all games. You play by all Access Pass where you must achieve a certain score in each game at the most difficult level to move on - the guys give you a phone number to move on. If you finish this you get a secret message from the guys. Also you can select No Strings method where you can play each game as often as you like ie to practice. Each part of the game is enhanced with a great video of each *NSYNCer introducing the game and the rules. There is a quick help menu always available at the touch of a key. You can either use the keyboard on your computer or the keypad of the phone to navigate the game. When you are done playing you are to click on Gotta Bounce and special messages from *NSYNC are downloaded to your phone. When your phone rings, you can listen to each message. You can also turn the ringer off (for instance in the library). Each of the 5 individual games are filled with little surprises. The game is great fun. I recommend it highly for any *NSYNC fan.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is AWSOME!
I can't begin to tell you how much fun this game is. I am about 4 years past my teens(you do the math) and I still love this game. For all the info on what is in the game, read the amazon info or the other review up here. I think my favorite part of the game is the messages from the guys and the fact that you can call the guys up and ask them yes or no questions kind of like having a Nsyncer magic 8 ball. I wasn't sure about spending my hard earned money on the game but it was well worth it and easy to set up. The hardest part was hooking up the computer cord for the phone. I highly recomend this game for any true nsync fan. The triva has questions on things that I didn't even know(and I know A LOT!).

4-0 out of 5 stars Very very good!
The phone is very cool. It's really great because you tell them your name and the time you go to bed and they ring you and say goodnight! It's like a real phone it's so cool. If you don't answer the phone they leave a message. You can call them and ask them questions. The phone is great but I don't like the games very much so I gave it 4 stars.

1-0 out of 5 stars this is a waste of money
Don't get this game there is realy no point to the game I gave it a star because I felt sorry for the bad game.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game!
I must say this was a guilty pleasure. I don't really like nsync but I saw this game for only 12 dollars and had to get it. It was actullay preety fun,but not enough fun to last awhile. The games on the cd rom were alright. I had a lot of trouble on the triva though.Here is my review on each game.

Charity Challenge- I didn't like this to much. It just wasn't that fun.

Trivia- This was hard for me since I am not an nsync fan. Really big nsync fans will have no problem on this though.

Bowling- This was pretty cool. I love to bowl so this was pretty cool to have on this game. The guy's heads are drawn on to five of the pins and they talk every now and then. Very cool!

Quick change- I kinda like this. It was pretty fun but each guy has the same outfits. They should have given each guy their own clothing.

Make a Move- My fave. I think I like this one because I like rytym/dance games. This was kinda like a dance game in a way.

So there you have it, my review. Very great for some nsync fun!! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Adobe may have the lock on professional graphics production withPhotoshop, but it has long been engaged in a drawn-out battle with Quark for thehearts and wallets of the desktop publishing crowd. PageMaker 7.0, Adobe'slatest effort in the desktop publishing arena, won't set it ahead of QuarkXPress4.1, but it does have plenty of appeal for small businesses and other audiencesthat have minor publishing needs.

PageMaker 7.0's user guide measures in at more than 400 pages, and itthoughtfully explains every aspect of the vast and complex program. A wide rangeof impressive-looking templates, which cover just about every type of documentimaginable (including business cards, labels, newsletters, ads, posters, andmore), makes PageMaker a little more accessible to users unfamiliar with itsfunctionality. The templates are divided into various levels of complexity, withthe lowest level containing helpful annotations for novice users.

While its improvements over version 6.5 are minimal, PageMaker 7.0 makes a fewworthy strides to justify its sparkly new version number. Among the most welcomeis a surprisingly intuitive data merge feature, which allows users to configuretarget areas in their publications and import respective fields from aspreadsheet or database. Unfortunately, it only recognizes comma-delineated CSVor TXT files; it doesn't import data directly from common file formats createdby Microsoft Excel or Lotus 1-2-3.

Ironically, another area of improvement in PageMaker 7.0 is compatibility withother programs. It easily imports and handles layered image files fromIllustrator and Photoshop 5.0 and 6.0, and features input converters for filescreated in QuarkXPress and Microsoft Publisher. PageMaker's PDF exportcapabilities have been enhanced both in the main program and with the includedAcrobat Distiller applet, allowing users to configure security and embedded tagoptions.

Even with its plethora of templates, PageMaker 7.0 isn't by any means anentry-level application. Nonprofessional users who have never used a high-caliberdesktop publishing program should probably consider a simpler package such asMicrosoft Publisher. While hardened, professional magazine designers tend toprefer QuarkXPress, Adobe PageMaker 7.0 is nonetheless a complex and powerfultool that packs a serious learning curve.

PageMaker 7.0 is perfect for small businesses that can't afford to hire outdesigners for promotional materials, or for companies that have the need tocreate professional-looking PDF files. Owners of PageMaker 6.5 might not feelcompelled to upgrade, but companies and creative folks newly in the market for amuscular desktop publishing tool will be well served by PageMaker 7.0. --JoelDurham Jr. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Class Act for Mac Computer Users
PageMaker marries your text, graphics and images into one PageMaker file from your computer desktop. Also, you can send the file to a service provider. Commercial service providers can turn your PageMaker files into high quality newsletters and magazines.

Thumbnail Designs to Comps

You need pencil and paper to create your thumbnail designs. The tradition still works for creating your design for layout pages in PageMaker. Follow this with the "Comp" (Comprehensive Sketch) for the number of pages, number of columns, picture placement, type specs and add color for affect.

The Comp is the first proof the client approves. Comps could include tables, sidebars, footnotes and various headlines. Next, have your client approve or suggest alterations for your work.

PageMaker Basic to Advanced Construction

You have the required tools and utilities built into PageMaker for creating basic layouts. With PageMaker you can automate repetitive tasks and combine manual operations into a few short steps. These are just some of the ways for speeding up your production time with PageMaker.

Avoid Costly Mistakes

Advantages of digital files allow you to change the text fonts, images, and colors before finally sending your publication to your service provider. Create several documents from your Master document. Use your PageMaker magazine advertisement on your website. You can also use your PageMaker file for your company sales kit and trade show posters and banners.

PageMaker Work Environment

Start with: Title Bar, Menu Bar, Tool Palette (Tool Box) and Control Palette. Add Page Navigation icons and finish with Story Editor.

The PageMaker mighty nine menus: Start with File, Edit, Layout, Type, Element and Utilities. Add View, Window and Help for direction.

PageMaker 7 and PDF files

PageMaker supports the import of Acrobat 5's PDF format files. Also, PageMaker 7 can now produce PDF files throughout the new Distiller 5. This is significant as PDF has establishes itself as one of the preferred medium for commercial print.

Quick Look at PageMaker 7 Improvements and Bundled Goodies

• Graphic placement is improved.
• Drag-and-drop placement works well.
• QuarkXPress 4.0 documents can be converted to PageMaker format.

Bundled goodies worth having: PageMaker 7.0 includes 57 font families with 207 Adobe typefaces, a huge collection of design templates, and a large library of Adobe Illustrator clip art and stock photo images.

Pro Reaction

PageMaker 7.0 has hundreds of A4 and U.S. letter templates for newsletters, brochures, flyers and advertisements.

PageMaker 7 now supports files in Photoshop's native PSD and Adobe Illustrator 9's AI format. In addition, PageMaker 7.0 comes with its own 401 page User Guide.

PageMaker's unique features are its ability to wrap text completely around objects. Another unique feature to PageMaker is its preflight capabilities to help users deliver error-free documents to printers and service bureaus.

Con Reaction

PageMaker 7 works with Mac OS 9 Classic and not directly in Mac OS X. You can still access it throughout OS X platform.

Missing is the Adobe Press book on how to use the Adobe PageMaker 7.0 templates similiar to Adobe PageMaker Plus 6.5 Productivity Kit. Also, there is no command to automatically open the placed PSD back into Photoshop.

3-0 out of 5 stars For Beginners Only
I learned graphic design and layout on PageMaker, and wished Adobe would take the product seriously. Instead, PageMaker seems to be falling into the ranks of Microsoft Publisher as a program people use believing it'll do the job right.

While many service bureaus still offer PageMaker services, it is by far better to go with Quark. It can do more, has more flexibility with printers and publishing houses, and will cause fewer problems regarding bugs and crashes.

The plus side is the templates. Beginners will depend on these, and templates simply aren't found in Quark. They will reduce the learning curve a little, though be aware, as a result, you templated documents will suffer from a canned, over-done look. Just the same, your work will be clean and well-structured.

If you intend to be a serious designer, stay away. None of the people you want to work for use this. This is for amateurs only.

If you have PageMaker, don't upgrade. 6.5 is plenty: the new stuff isn't worth the money. Do a little homework on Quark, and figure out how to convert your files with the newest version. It the short run, you'll spend a few more bucks, but in the long-run, you'll save time and frustration.

I cautiously recommend PageMaker 7.0, but only as a tool for users intending to publish newsletters from their desktops.

2-0 out of 5 stars This product could be very good, with a few changes...
I bought a CDROM training disk on ebay called "Mastering Flash MX Professional 2004" by BDG Publishing Inc. which includes instruction for Flash 5, Flash MX and Flash 2004 professional on it, even though the cover does not show it.

To use this program you will have three windows up on your computer monitor at the same one. One will be Flash, the second for the video from the training program and the third the control box used to control the start and stop or navigation of the training CDROM. I have a rectangular 17 inch LCD screen and find the windows large enough for me, but if you had a small LCD screen, especially if square, I can see where it could be difficult to see well enough due to way you have to make each window so small to fit both the Flash and the training windows up at the same time.

Although the publisher of this training program claims it to be a comprehensive introduction to Flash MX that part of the training program appears to be nothing but hacked up portions of an earlier produced Flash MX training program which is missing all of the basic orientation needed to start using flash, spotty with their explainatoin of some tools and no mention of others. Next, the program goes strait into telling you to do things which have not been covered yet with no explaination of how to do them. If your buying this disk to learn Flash MX forget it, they just threw some stuff in together to give a few instructions which section to section does not have any kind of flow and far from being even a basic outline of the program. I'm only a newbie to flash and can clearly see how poorly that portion of the training disk was handled and find it difficult to believe a company would produce such a poor excuse for a Flash MX training CDROM.

This disk appears to be much better for Flash MX 2004 Pro., but when I tried using the Mastering Flash MX 2004 professional portion of this disk every time the guy tells you to click on a tool or menue the audio stops for a long time until you click "next" in the control box so that you can hear more. What I have found happens every time they ask me to select one of the drop down menues the audio instructions have stopped each and every time without telling me what to do next, so then I have to go over to the control panel for the CDROM and click "next" to get the rest of the instructions of what he wants you to select in that menu. However, each time you jump back and forth between the control box to click next and flash (both set up on the same screen) you have then just deselected Flash and the drop down menu you have just selected snaps back and closes. Because of this I often find myself having to use the "back" button to hear what he said again. What they should be doing is telling you to click on a menu item then pause their speaking for long enough for you to do it and THEN tell you want they want you to select in that menu without having to click "next" after each sentence and the resulting de-selection of the drop down menu.

The Flash MX 2004 Pro. portion of this program seems ok, but I find it needs some polishing so that the user won't get so frustrated with the way they give you tiny little bits of instruction to tell you to open the menu, but does not tell you what you need to select in that menue until you cick "next" to continue. I understand they have tried to make this program as newbie friendly as possible so that even the slowest person can have enough time to see what they need to do, but telling you to click on a menue and then stopping the audio and requiring you to click "next" again (unless your willing to wait for an extremely long period time for the program to time out and continue talking) to hear what they want you to click on in that drop down menue is taking it way too far, to the point of making what could be a good product poor.

One last design problem with the program. The control for the CDROM where you have buttons for Back, Next and Last have the buttons all far too small and close together in a row. The "next" and "last" buttons are right next to one another and I have accidentally clicked on "last" more than once when trying to select next and found it will take you to the end of the training program which you then cannot back out of to get back where you should be, requiring a restart of the training section and navigation to get back to where you last were. ...

196. Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Upgrade

Amazon.com Review

Adobe may have the lock on professional graphics production withPhotoshop, but it has long been engaged in a drawn-out battle with Quark for thehearts and wallets of the desktop publishing crowd. PageMaker 7.0, Adobe'slatest effort in the desktop publishing arena, won't set it ahead of QuarkXPress4.1, but it does have plenty of appeal for small businesses and other audiencesthat have minor publishing needs.

PageMaker 7.0's user guide measures in at more than 400 pages, and itthoughtfully explains every aspect of the vast and complex program. A wide rangeof impressive-looking templates, which cover just about every type of documentimaginable (including business cards, labels, newsletters, ads, posters, andmore), makes PageMaker a little more accessible to users unfamiliar with itsfunctionality. The templates are divided into various levels of complexity, withthe lowest level containing helpful annotations for novice users.

While its improvements over version 6.5 are minimal, PageMaker 7.0 makes a fewworthy strides to justify its sparkly new version number. Among the most welcomeis a surprisingly intuitive data merge feature, which allows users to configuretarget areas in their publications and import respective fields from aspreadsheet or database. Unfortunately, it only recognizes comma-delineated CSVor TXT files; it doesn't import data directly from common file formats createdby Microsoft Excel or Lotus 1-2-3.

Ironically, another area of improvement in PageMaker 7.0 is compatibility withother programs. It easily imports and handles layered image files fromIllustrator and Photoshop 5.0 and 6.0, and features input converters for filescreated in QuarkXPress and Microsoft Publisher. PageMaker's PDF exportcapabilities have been enhanced both in the main program and with the includedAcrobat Distiller applet, allowing users to configure security and embedded tagoptions.

Even with its plethora of templates, PageMaker 7.0 isn't by any means anentry-level application. Nonprofessional users who have never used a high-caliberdesktop publishing program should probably consider a simpler package such asMicrosoft Publisher. While hardened, professional magazine designers tend toprefer QuarkXPress, Adobe PageMaker 7.0 is nonetheless a complex and powerfultool that packs a serious learning curve.

PageMaker 7.0 is perfect for small businesses that can't afford to hire outdesigners for promotional materials, or for companies that have the need tocreate professional-looking PDF files. Owners of PageMaker 6.5 might not feelcompelled to upgrade, but companies and creative folks newly in the market for amuscular desktop publishing tool will be well served by PageMaker 7.0. --JoelDurham Jr. ...

If you are a small shop and are tight on money.. forget it. it you have some extra cash, pagemaker 7 tackles a few of those bugs that 6.5 has.

I love pagemaker and if you want a great program, do not pass this up!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great new Features
Adobe has outdone itself. Great new features make it worthwhile to jump to this new version. You no longer have to be an artist to create great documents, and now all that work done in other formats can be brought in so much easier. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great software
After searching forever for software that i could use to copy photos and videos so i could watch them on my dvd player i came across this excellent software.After a little trial and error i got it to work perfect""It plays videos and makes slideshows very well.I could not be happier.

2-0 out of 5 stars Sounds good on paper
I purchase this program hoping I can put together a photo slideshow as a farewell present for a coworker and also as a slideshow gift for my niece. I tried the trial version first. It has very easy menus and I was able to create my first slideshow in 20 minutes. It worked great in my home DVD. I decided to purchase the program the next day. After finalizing the DVD I decided to try out the slideshow at work. It didn't work in two DVD's at my work place. I tried at two other people DVD's, still nothing. I went back and I tried different setup menus. After wasting more than 25 CD's I decided to call the company. The technical support recommendation: purchase a similar DVD so my niece can play the slideshow!!!!! What a waste of time and money!! The program sounds good on paper, does not deliver. Don't waste your money! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Neverending story of frustration.
I've bought this product expecting that if I have already encoded file in Mpeg-2 it will be easy to create simple menu for my own home video, according all information I discovered from Pinnacle web site. But, unfortuanately, you cannot create a DVD, which will fit to 4.7 Gb blank. If you try to create a DVD from avi file it may take forever (couple of hours) just to create a DVD files. Final quality is really bad, you will have 700 Mb or ever more of free space left on your blank disc, but the "Expression" will show you that there's no space left.

One time it created a DVD with for me where the total size of all files was about 1 Gb, but program showed that there was no space left!

The program is really unstable, as all other Pinnacle products.

I have Pinnacle Studio 8 also with the same set of problems:
- poor video quality
- wrong calculation of free space on DVD
- unexpectable slow performance.

If you want DVD authoring software Expression is not the right choice. And I will give you the same advice if you decide to buy Pinnacle Studio. I do not expect from them any improvement in version 9. The most recent reviews just awful.

P.S. If you think that my system is slow, here is draft spec:
p4-2.4 GHz, 1Gb RAM, 7200rpm 120 Gb Hard drive... Yeah, really slow system for Pinnacle.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Thrilled
I had been using Dazzle DVD Complete which provided fairly regular upgrades, and checked their site for an update only to find a Pinnacle webpage offering a $40 upgrade from DVD Complete to Expression. Apparently they have taken Dazzle over and won't be supporting the product. So I ordered it ... me=idiot. Didnt do enough research and found that its the equivalent of "My First DVD Software" There is no way to create a professional looking DVD -which is what I use it for. Its basically for newbies who want to throw old videos of their kids on a DVD and send it to the folks.

That, I admit is my own fault for not further researching, but I am a software junkie and was impulsive. BUT, as far as Pinnacle's marketing it as an upgrade? UPGRADE???? Would you consider going from Photoshop 7.0 to Microsoft Draw an upgrade? Pinnacle obviously would.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very bad experience using it
I usually do not write comments but this time I feel I have to write something about it, because I am really disappointed the Pinnacle Expression. I used it to create a DVD-R using existing well-coded Mpeg2 files, but it is very very slow, regardless in Pentium IV 1.8GHz or Pentium III 600 MHz, two of my PC's. One thing really puzzled me was, in either PC, the CPU usuage was only about 25-30 percent. And the program IS running, not non-responding. No huge I/O activity. No DVD buring activity either. Then why isn't it running faster, to use 100% CPU??? It took one hour, only incrementing from 50% to 52% complete in preparing the DVD contents, not even the burning yet-- a separate process. And then it always errored out at about 70%, "Error to Complie File", something like it. Stupid. I am an IT professional myself. I keep my PC environment simple. There're enough memory and hard disk space in my PC's. There's no registry mess up. If there's anything wrong, it must be the program (I already downlaoded the lastest update from Pinnaclesys.com). I am very disappoined. It is such a straightforward and simple program yet they don't know how to code it well. ... Read more
