Just downloaded it and encoded a clip. I chose one of the presets for braodband and the results aren't as good as QT but I guess I'll have to learn how to tweak the settings like I did in QT. QT is still better than wmv9 though.

*sigh* and I just spent $99 two weeks ago on Flip4Mac's version of this. Oh well.

I just bought Flip4Mac's two days ago. I guess it seemed like a valuable tool for $100 though, so what can you do. I sure hope that Flip4Mac upgrades with some nice features to be competitive with that price!

Patrick, Charles and Flip4Mac users, don't despair. Hang tight 'till NAB and you might be getting something else as an add on to your package.

LOTS of kewl stuff coming from Flip4Mac.

Can't say more. NDA and all <grin>.

Thanks Craig! Hey, I casually installed my WMV software on my laptop as an afterthought, but then realized I really needed it on my tower; however, I appear to have exceeded my installations. Is there any way to manage this (I thought I saw something in the Flip4Mac forums about converting from the demo to full version without having to be online, but then I couldn't find that info again).

thanks...

Have done the free upgrade from WMV Export to WMV Studio, after watching the demo at NAB. I'm now opening WMV's in a Quicktime player right in Safari, which is absolutely genius. They look great and it's wonderful to be able to navigate around the clip. Now I'm definitely happy I bought Flip4Mac.
