Easy Media Creator 7
Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 is much more than just the latest spin of the company's immensely popular Easy CD & DVD Creator digital-media suite. Boasting an enormous number of enhancements and a radically improved interface, Creator 7 is the first Roxio suite to present itself convincingly as a single, coherent application. Where its predecessor merely camouflaged a set of loosely knit utilities (some that Roxio developed, some that it acquired) behind a simple module launcher, Creator 7's task-oriented interface has the feel of a unified solution, designed from the ground up to handle an exhaustive selection of audio, video, image-editing, slide show, backup, and premastering chores. And at just $99 (direct), buyers get a number of top-tier utilities at an attractive price.
