A summary of the new Roxio Creator 2011 -- 
    Key new features and enhancements, plus a visual tour of the interface and applications.

Roxio Creator 2011 is Roxio’s flagship suite of digital media applications -- Roxio describes it as the leading toolset for digital media with over 350 million units shipped worldwide, and in 2009, Roxio digital media applications secured almost 50% category share in North American retail (www.roxio.com).

Creator is a deep collection of media tools, with over 10 major applications to handle data, video, music, and images, plus 20-some additional tools for dedicated tasks. Recent versions of the Creator suite have added more sharing options, from converting to portable devices, uploading and sharing online, plus support for high-definition video, especially though AVCHD camcorders and Blu-ray Disc drives.

New 3D and Streamer

But the big new addition for 2011 is support for creating 3D productions -- you can import, edit, and export 3D videos and photo creations, and view then on your computer, online, and on 3D TVs from DVD or Blu-ray disc. Creator also solves the chicken-and-egg problem of getting content for new technology formats by allowing you to get started without requiring any new hardware displays or cameras -- you can view 3D on standard displays with red/blue anaglyph glasses, convert existing 2D photos and videos to 3D, and even view 2D videos in 3D in real time.

The other major addition is Roxio Streamer, software that turns your PC into a media server, so you can view your content over your home network on other PCs and on compatible consumer electronics devices. Plus Streamer allows you to share your media folders over the Internet, so friends and family can log in and view your clips though a Web browser.

Creator 2011 adds other improvements for editing, including video stabilization for shaky home movies, video rotation for digital camera videos, plus additional sharing options including iPad device support, direct publishing to Facebook, higher-quality DVD menus, and additional project templates. The new Creator also has faster processing through processor and graphics card acceleration.

Creator Design

Creator 2011 continues the emphasis on  consumer-friendly design, with an approachable and friendly design, with a main launch pad application for quick access to tasks and creation tools, plus an integrated Learning Center with video tutorials and how-to articles.

Use the main Roxio Creator launch pad application to access the right tool for the job: Capture and import video, audio, and photos, from analog and digital devices, including HD camcorders. Edit and transfer directly to CD, DVD, and Blu-ray, or convert to other formats. Create projects and compilations. Then Enjoy and share your movies, music, and photo mixes on disc, on your TV, online on YouTube, and on portable devices like the iPad.

       Creator 2011 - Home tab

The Creator suite also deep roots. Roxio is the consumer brand of Sonic Solutions, which is a long-time leader in professional DVD and Blu-ray authoring, and is growing in digital media for home consumer electronics (www.sonic.com). The data copy and burn part of the suite goes back to Easy CD Creator for disk burning, which expanded to Easy Media Creator with DVD, and now is plain Creator. Sonic also added tools like MyDVD and BackOnTrack for backup. Plus the suite include digital media editing tools for music, photos, and movies, built around a core of rather comprehensive applications including VideoWave and PhotoSuite (originally from MGI).

Each tab also includes commonly-used tasks along the top.

Some tasks like Copy / Burn Disc are built in; otherwise, the control panel will launch the appropriate external application or assistant tool to perform the selected task. (External tasks are marked with a shortcut arrow.)

       VideoWave

3D Video Editing

Then to work with 3D video, both VideoWave and MyDVD can import video in a variety of 3D formats, as well as convert 2D video to 3D -- to preview, edit, enhance, and author in 3D. However, not all editing options are available in 3D, including stabilization and rotation effects. It's also best to avoid effects that distort the video, blur edges, or adjust colors (for anaglyph) -- which can lessen the 3D effect. With MyDVD, you can author 3D DVDs in anaglyph or RealD format, albeit without menus (but with chapters). You even can author 3D in high definition, and burn in AVCHD format to a standard DVD, which will play in HD on Blu-ray players. Or upload to YouTube to view online in 3D.

And to view 3D video, CinePlayer not only plays 3D videos, but it also converts 2D standard-def video to 3D -- in real time. It supports a variety of display formats, including active shutter, line polarized, and anaglyph. You can even adjust the 3D format during playback, including the 3D depth and position.
