Dazzle Video Creator Plus Jan 06, 2009
By George B.
A powerful, albeit memory hog product - but it does a great job.
And cannot beat the price!!!
I think (as usual) I only know 25% of its capabilities and I'm learning as I go along. Keep working at it and use the BURN DVD after you've spent some time experimenting with your "Projects" (keep saving them!!).
Adding titles and "buttons" in the opening scene is easy, once you mastered the nuances of the program. Converted 1:40 of tape to 3 DVD's so I can keep them separate.
Ten months and many DVD's later and in response to some of the Q's floating around this discussion:
Dazzle is not simple...the first time around, anyway.
There are three distinct stages: Capture (takes your analog video and converts it to an avi file...a huge one. Then you have the Editing, where you can cut stuff out, add titles, etc. AND THIRDLY you burn the final to a DVD. That the good way!
Now, if you want to transfer without any editing, there is a way (the lazy man's/woman's way) - follow the instructions.
Free advice: Capture no more than 10 minutes at a time, then edit it and save it (better have a big hard drive, mine is a 160Gb, so I got a 250Gb USB Passport from WD and that drive is only for captured videos (AVI's). So get your short 10 mins captured video (avi) and play with it until you master Dazzle. Then you'll be ready for bigger and better things. The 10 minute segments also helps to eliminate any sound sync problems.
It is not that complicated, but it takes some practice. Personally I use it ONLY to CAPTURE, I use Windows MovieMaker for editing the AVI and saving it to a WMV file and then I use Sonic to burn it on a DVD. Why?? Because I am very familiar with both of these programs and I feel comfy using them. The results are great - ask my five grand kids :-)

Very happy with the Dazzle Dec 27, 2008
I'm not sure about the negative reviews, especially those that don't give any detail as to the problems with the product. Just make sure it works with your operating system. I have Windows XP, and the Dazzle and Pinnacle software work well. My PC only has 0.5GB memory, so the Pinnacle SW can run slow at times. I blame the slowness on my lack of memory. I'd really like to give this product a 5. The only reason I can't is that I did have to recapture a couple video clips as the first captures had some bits of choppiness where the video and audio kind-of skip. That could also be my slow PC. I'm not sure. As for what I like: The Dazzle and the Pinnacle SW are extremely user-friendly. The video editing is very intuitive. There's a beginning tutorial after you first load the SW that is worth watching. After that, you're off. It's really fun, and I was surprised at how much you could do. For less than $100, I was not expecting the editing SW to have as many features as it does. It's really a terrific deal.

quick setup, great quality Jan 24, 2009
By Robert Lyons
I just got this device about an hour ago and Im already capturing great clips from videogames! Contrary to what a lot of people have said about this it works with Vista Home 32-bit right out of the box! Setup was simple and the software is surprisingly very good.
The device that came with mine was black, apparently there are also red and silver versions out there, so this review is for the black one.

Warning: serious audio sync problems!! Sep 02, 2009
By Don R.
I purchased this product after reading mostly favorable customer reviews. Every product is going to have one or two bad reviews and one or two nuts you need to ignore. So I figured this product would be okay. HOWEVER, using the capture device and accompanying software to capture analog video from a VCR produces NOTICEABLE AUDIO DRIFT with time. The audio starts out in perfect sync, but over the 30 minutes of a camcorder VHS-C tape, it can be out of sync by over a minute by the end of the tape. I first thought the problem was with another editing program, but no. Playing back the raw avi capture through several video players confirmed it was the Pinnacle capture software.
If you choose video preview while capturing it, you can verify that the audio and video are properly synched all the way to the end as being delivered by the Pinnacle USB capture device to the PC. Once in a while, a capture will work just fine, but it appears to be random. I had to capture each tape about 3 times to get one with proper synchronization. Don't know if other programs running in the background inadvertently affect sync, but they shouldn't. And yes - my PC specs are superior to the minimum stated requirements. FYI - I am runing Windows XP SP3.
If you search on the web for "pinnacle studio audio sync problem" you will see that this has been an ongoing problem for YEARS. Incidentally, I have not had any problems with lost frames as others have. So buyer beware. If you have purchased this product and are happy with it - congratulations. But if you haven't bought it yet, I would seriously advise finding another product, as I now have to. I hope this review halps those reading it. Thank you for reading this.

Great Product for those on a Budget May 10, 2009
By Jesse K. Moua
If you don't want to go for an expensive HD video capture equipment then the Dazzle is the answer. The software works really well when you get used to it. I used this to recored gameplays from my PS3 and to get the best quality out of this product, use S-Video. For the price the quality and the software were great. It allows you to record it through the regular composite or S-video. S-video is better as it looks clearer especially for those recording gameplays from consoles. I recommend this product for those recording old VHS, DVDs, and or gameplays from consoles.
