Roxio Easy Media Creator 10

The Good Huge application range. Nice front end launcher.

The Bad Some programs overlap. Some program instability. Blu-Ray/HD-DVD support limited.

The Bottom Line There's not much you can't do with Roxio's Easy Media Creator 10 Suite, although we'd dearly like to see more of the applications play nicely with each other.

Roxio Easy Media Creator 10

There's little doubt that in the digital multimedia suite space, there's an arms race going on. At the turn of the decade, it was enough for companies such as Roxio, Nero and their ilk to just offer a simple optical disc burning solution; if you were lucky, you might get some kind of MP3 ripping/re-encoding utility thrown in for laughs.

That's in stark contrast to the massive media suites that are on offer today, and few come with meatier options than Roxio's Easy Media Creator Suite 10. It isn't even easy to list all of the applications that install: BackOnTrack, CinePlayer, Creator Classic, Label Creator, Media Manager, Music Disc Creator, MyDVD, PhotoSuite, Sound Editor, Video Copy & Convert, VideoWave, Audio Converter, Audio Tag Editor, AutoMix, CineMagic, Create Panoramas, DVD Music Assistant, Disc Image Loader, LP and Tape Assistant, Media Import, Multi Photo Enhance and finally MyDVD Express.

Within that little lot, you're bound to find one or two applications that should suit your multimedia needs and presumably if you're looking at a suite, more than one. On a purely fiscal note, if each application were of equal worth to you, you'd be looking at AU$7.22 per application, which is pretty cheap in our books.
