In a word . Terrible . I tried different export formats . They ranged in size . I made an export with two movies and an opening , closing credit 10 sec. ea. and a divider 10sec. the total MB of the two movies was 11 MB ... the exports ranged from
50 MB on AAC h.264 ( low quality )
132MB on AAC Mpeg 4 Video
86 MB AAC H.264 (Best Quality)
The exported video was darker .. fair amount . And it was blurred . I was doing it on a stock chart demo and the words and charting was such I would not use it and for something like this it does not have to be crystal clear in HD .
If I had not gotten this in a bundle I would be screaming ... to their credit they give you a 30 day trail . I WOULD NOT BUY IT ! It's pretty easy to use . Simple intro and credit screens . But the finished product is not good . It is no way worth 50 bucks . I would not pay $5 for it because it will not perform . THe developer has to know there is quality issue with the export .
Failure .

Something else . :

Dear Sir :
Thank you for the response .
I figured out that you have to use the font adjustment embedded in the program and not through the
OSX - hi light text - right mouse click -fonts . That is what I used and it would not take .

On to another problem .
The export of a video is degraded by 30 to 50% in clarity from the original .
Also it is much darker than the original .
Is there a planned update to fix these problems ?
It is not subtle . So I must assume that it is know .
Also the files produced on exporting are big .
I played around with it and the original vids combined were 11mg.
The exports were any where from 56 to 120 MG .
They also took about 20 min. to complete .
Is this to be expected to remain as how the program will render the exports ?

Thank you
Duncan Adams

Response :

Dear Duncan,

Many thanks for your efforts.

As for the quanlity of the exported video, you can choose the best resolution 1920 x 1080 for the best quanlity.

Also, we'll update the product occasionally to optimize it.

Thanks for your support and wish you a nice weekend!

They know it's bad . The Resolution setting is not the answer . I used it .
Just kind of an unspoken - oh well that's the way it is .. maybe later .
More Failure .

I bought both Vivideo and Fantashow within a couple of days of each other. I like them both and have had NO trouble with either application.

The price is right, too, comparing it to Foto Magico Pro.

Maybe I'm missing something here but the sidebar to the right says that this is free but when you launch the program, you're asked to input your registration number, which costs $50. Photo Magico costs only $30 and is a great app for creating slide show presentations.

@Billybob152: When you say the price is right, what does Fantashow do for $50 than Photo Magico doesn't do for $30? That's a serious question - I'd really like to know.



Sorry, I was comparing Fantashow to FotoMagico PRO not Express. I just find Fantashow easier to follow.

I make the slideshow, send it to Mac HD and then drag the result and burn in Vivideo without having to use iDVD (which I do not like). Or you can send directly using Share and sending either to Mac HD or iDVD.

I hope that helps. I never did get the hang of iDVD.


@Billybob152: Thanks. I agree that the Pro version is pretty expensive for what it does. Of course anything that doesn't involve iDVD is a huge bonus!


Beware, Sideshow Bob posts glowing reviews for all wondershare crapware and haunts their listings to keep pushing it with the high star ratings. Kickbacks from the company probably. This software, like everything this ripoff company produces, is overpriced, limited garbage. Considering the free alternatives or LOWER priced alternatives from legitimate companies, only a shill would promote this crap and only a fool would pay for it.
