VideoWave Movie Creator

VideoWave was originally launched by MGI in the late 1990s and is now available under the Roxio umbrella. Roxio has cottoned on to the growing interest in rediscovering footage on analog videotapes, so there’s as much emphasis on transferring recordings from your ageing VCR to a PC as there is from DV (digital video) cameras. The package is icon- and wizard-based and you can opt to have as little or as much control over the editing stage as you wish.

StoryBuilder is the obvious middle-way, providing preset transitions and titling templates but giving you some say over the finished product. CineMagic is the easiest to use of the main production modes. Assemble the clips, select some music, and it’s a wrap. The StoryLine Editor has more advanced effects and even provides the option to re-edit an existing movie (see here for a screenshot).

The three-pronged approach to video production makes this a flexible product for beginners, who can then progress to handling more of the editing tasks as their confidence and competence grows. It’s a step up from Microsoft’s freely available Movie Maker 2.0, but it won’t satisfy real enthusiasts for long.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
