Adobe Production Premium CS3

As with the release of Adobe's Creative Suite 3 earlier this year, there's a considerable amount to uncover in the new Production Premium package. On face value, it could appear that more effort has been put into bundling third-party products like Ul...

PC Game -- Caesar IV

Though perhaps not as widely known as Sid Meier's Sim City franchise, Sierra's Caesar series has been entertaining city-building fans for over a decade now, with multiple spin-offs like Pharoah, Zeus: Master of Olympus, and Emperor: Rise of the Middl...

(More) cheap tricks

Video equipment doesn't need to cost the earth. Laurence Grayson shows you how some unlikely tools can help you get that perfect shot.

PC Game -- Defcon

Independent UK-based developer, Introversion, hit the game scene last year with the surprise hit, Darwinia. It was a quirky, imaginative, and (most importantly) innovative title that deserved all the attention it received.

ChiMei CMV938D

Chi Mei is building a reputation as a producer of inexpensive, entry-level displays. The CMV938D is no exception, though you should give careful thought to what you're sacrificing for the price.

PC Game -- The Ship

If you're fed up with run-of-the-mill first-person shooters, you'll be pleased to hear that The Ship adds a thoughtful and effective spin to online deathmatch variants.

PC Game -- CivCity: Rome

PC Game -- Over the Hedge

If your brood is still clamouring for more of their favourite characters after seeing Over the Hedge the movie (RJ the raccoon, Verne the turtle, Hammy the squirrel and Stella the skunk), then this game will give them just that - and hopefully buy yo...

Sounds interesting

A good video can be made or broken by the soundtrack. So what's the best way to legally add audio to your moving pictures?

PC Game -- Hitman: Blood Money

As if to outdo the opening scene of Hitman: Contracts, which had Agent 47 staggering into a seedy hotel to have bullets removed by a backstreet doctor, Blood Money starts with our favourite bald assassin's funeral - though this isn't made apparent un...

BenQ CP220

BenQ's new CP220 data projector promises a number of attractive features for corporate presenters, but falls short of expectations. Designed for the mobile professional, this XGA (1024x768-pixel) unit weighs around 2kg with the supplied softcase and ...

Sony Cinescore 1.0

Few video producers have the budget for a custom musical score, or the time/equipment/musical skill to create one themselves, so Sony has released Cinescore 1.0.

The Movies: Stunts and Effects

If you were hoping that the Stunts and Effects expansion pack for Lionhead's cinema-sim The Movies would include some extra staff for your beleaguered studio, I'm afraid that you're out of luck. While it integrates beautifully, this add-on does nothi...

VOB's your uncle

Whatever your reasons for doing it, and wherever you've taken the content from, editing DVD video is easier than you might think.
