Be vary carful . Do research . It may work for some .. but for me it was a failure . Mac Book Pro I7 Processor Ram 8 gig . OSX Lion It will NOT UNINSTALL. Found this out after the fact and much research . Then used the notes I found from Stephane on a web search . On searching for SwithRes files and deleting them. Well that does not work either . When I used thunderbolt for external display . THe MBP display went to about 5 in by 5 in in size with default rez. I could read it but it made it ineffective to use with demo / projector .... Tried everything I could think of sent her an Email but did not wait to see if I get response . I have to get it fixed . Had to wipe the drive ... reload with Lion and I will migrated an old back up taken PRIOR to the poison that Switch Res X has put into the MBP . Needless to say I have killed several hours of my life with this . Thankfully it was a 10 day trial and I don't have the hassle of getting a refund ... thank you for that Stephane. If this works for other people great ... to me this was like a one night sand with a venereal disease . It just would not go away unless I purified the machine . Duncan
No workie GI No love you long time . Downloaded all options in task bar grayed out . It loaded but would not function ... was thinking about the bundle offer not now ... I have things to do other than trouble shoot someone else's work .
Dear Clip Buddy: Thank you for your concern . I don't want to take the time . Maybe it's my system ... maybe it's not As I stated . I loaded it on my system and then click the icon and it would not start . Nothing I look for software that simplifies my life not adds more maintenance to it. Thank you Duncan Adams
I am not a mixing or music head ... I just like to be able to tweek some stuff for my personal consumption . IE some YOUTUBE songs . I found Audio Hijack Pro gave ME better sound and was a lot easier with the Effects tab to use to get what I want .. I own Hear it was part of a bundle I think ... would have to go back and look .... Tried it a few times ... then went back to my Audio Hijack ... it's just easier to get the sound I want ...
If want a good editor this is . If you want a screen capture tool .. well it does it . But it lacks . When capturing you have no way to see what the status is . You don't know if the sound is recording until you get the finished recording . You can't choose the section of the screen . You have to capture the whole screen . For me I find this an inferior product . I am glad it was part of a bundle it would have been a waste of money if not I would want my money back . It is not worth 100 bucks . I may use it if I need to capture a whole screen . If they would have made it so it would edit quicktime files at least you would get some usage out of it . But it does not . It is no replacement for IShowU. For me ... it's a failure .
Ground my Mac Pro to all but a halt ... It ran like a G 3 on OS8 Glad it was a free trial .
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! Momo Support Team Wondershare Software 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 . Duncan
This program has helped me greatly over the years ... the problem is that about every other new build is buggy .. at least for me . If you by it on deal this round ... great ... but ask for an older version ... it will work better . I had to go back to one . Every time I update I cross my fingers .
I had to write a review here . Did one on the Apple App store too. This thing is the best I have used . EASY to interface with . I have bought a couple of others ... don't use them not handy enough . THis is just cherry . If you are thinking of getting it DO it at 10 bucks it worth 2 to 3 time yes as good as it works I would pay 30 and yes if i owned it I might try to get 30 .. depending on the volume of sales ... it;s worth 20 with out blinking an eye . It's on sale at the App Store for 10 GET IT . Thanks for resurrecting this I hope you make 100 k on it . Duncan
Dear God man I know you want to make money but this is out of sight . The question begs . What is the data feed for the program . If you are getting NYSE and CME feeds ok you have to pass on the cost . Ok reading the home page ... have to take some of it back . You are getting exchange feed not just hooking into google and this is for the apple program too so that may be a benefit to some . Of course Thinkorswim is out there and you can get this too for free ... but .. I can that if you are outside of the United States this could be a benefit
I bought it . It is great . I have a program THNKORSWIM with multiple windows set up . It does not always repopulate on the monitors in the same configuration that it is shut down in . Could not solve the problem ... well STAY did ... works great . Thanks .
After some experimenting on both and tweeking on the THINKORSWIM program . I have gotten it to work . STAY does what it says it will . The developer contacted me a couple of times trying to help me with the problem so he is attentive . It save me a lot of time and aggravation . Good purchase .
