The program, developed by Ulead before it was acquired by Corel, is aimed primarily at the hobbyist who wants to edit home camcorder movies and save them to recordable DVDs, in addition to producing audio compilation CDs and data backup DVDs. DVD MovieFactory 6 is available in two flavors. Both versions are available boxed, or for immediate downloading from www. First Walkthrough Once the software was installed and the PC rebooted, to get a sense of how intuitive DVD Movie Factory 6 would be for the neophyte user, I did a quickie walkthrough of the program without cracking the manual. But for this test, I simply used a couple of short video clips each about ten minutes that I had lying around my hard drive. The program took me to the next screen, which allowed me to choose from a handsome gallery of pre-programmed menus, each with an alpha channel cutout to allow motion video from the timeline to play underneath the menu. For longer videos, this may very well be a process best done at night or on lunch break, as the time to render and burn a disc is extensive. Of course, more advanced users will want to do more than just quickie video assemblage. Fortunately, DVD Movie Factory Plus is capable of doing much more precision editing on its timeline, including the ability to add dissolves, wipes and other transitions.
