Bw 5 question

vbimport

#1

hi

when is bw 5 final coming out? i am not asking for an exact date but something like jan 2004 or des 2003. dont get me wrong i am not trying too hurry up the vso guys, i’d rather wait longer and get a good product then getting a half finished product early. i am just asking

second, is the bw 5 beta key going to work with the final version of bw 5?


#2

I think it can be ready before christmas (this :D).

And beta key will not work as i know.

Correct be lapinou if is something wrong


#3

no, beta key will not work


#4

then it wouldnt be good to buy bw 4 now, would it? If i buy bw 4 now which is not under development anymore so i dont get any upgrades and after 2 months bw 5 final comes out, then i’ve lost 2 months of free uppgrade. Or do I get one year from when bw 5 final comes out?


#5

registering now, let you benefit of the beta of bw5 now …
but the final version for registered user will not be released in 2 months but far sooner.


#6

yea, but some people doesnt care if they get to try the beta. if bw 5 is coming in less than 2 months then i guess its ok.

what about dvd burning capabilities. if it cant copy like clonedvd then whats the point? dont get me wrong im not trashing bw 5, i cant wait til the final comes out. i am just wondering what dvd burning in bw 5 is for?

will dvd-toolbox pro be the clonedvd product from vso-software?


#7

to be honest and very direct, bw5 will work “only” for dvd5 … not DVD 9 … dvdshrink, dvd2one and 321 products produce the best choices for dvd 9 to 5 . that’s not the purpose of bw5


#8

will dvd-toolbox pro do dvd9?


#9

dvd toolbox is not an active project… competitors are better than we can do … so we will focus on blindwrite and copytodvd at the moment…


#10

thats to bad. til now vso-software have had excellent software and i am sure a transcoding from vso-software would have been awesome

just to be sure i understood. when will the 1 year free update start. when i get the bw 4 lincesce, when i get the bw 5 alpha/beta lincence or when i get the bw 5 final licence?


#11

the 1 year upgrade is based on the purchase date.


#12

thanks for your time,
vso support roxs :slight_smile:


#13

atleast for the time being vso wil not go into transcoding, but wil vso-software make any mastering software?

and some suggestions for bw 5:
i think vso should add the possibility of adding or extracting files from a bwi image.


#14

There is mastering software Copy2DVD


#15

sorry, i spoke to early.
the only version of Copy2DVD i tried was the first version of Copy2CD and then it wasnt a mastering software, it were a shell with a cd-writing engine.
i have now tried Copy2DVD and it roxs.


#16

bw 5 wil copy dvd 5, but wil bw 5 copy the dvd if it is css or do i have to use a extra software like anydvd? incase it can copy css dvd’s wouldnt vso get in trouble, like getting sued by the mpaa?


#17

oups we forget to remove the decss code…
don’t worry , … just be patient… and don’t tell to mpaa


#18

i would never tell the mpaa, even if vso didnt remove the decss code. so i guess i still need anydvd (stupid mpaa for making decss illegal :()


#19

no, just be patient, I prefer to not talk about that on the forum …
