I've read some of the other quotes from the likes of Rene, Phil Thomas and Scarpad, to name a few. To me, they make perfect sense. How long has DVD2One been around now? Maybe a few months???
In a short time, at the request of the users, this prog has gone through what I consider a major transformation. It was meant to be a "movie" only transcoder. It did a phenomenal job at what it was advertised to do and did it amazingly fast. I don't know about the rest of you but I really appreciated this prog big time.
But as human nature goes, I thought I'd really like to keep the whole DVD intact. Wouldn't it be great to be able to do a whole DVD9 and put it on 1 disk? Well, in a very short time, DVD2One gave me that capability. Granted, there are others out there that do this and that's great. We can spend our money on the product/products we like.
But the point is that DVD2One HAS responded to user needs and in a short time. Just because i've purchased this prog, I don't think I'm entitled to know their "roadmap". I think people think that because a dev is small, that dev should be so informal as to share all the workings with the users. That usually spells disappointment and future issues for the dev. Any "promises" not kept become lingering probs for said dev.
Years ago, I worked for a small dev who ONLY shared future features/enhancements with 1 or 2 very close customers. These customers were basically beta testers that were privy to some cool new features that may OR may not have made the final cut.
Also, someone has made comment about DVD2One not having built-in ripping as DVDShrink. I believe most peeps are very comfortable using the ripper of their choice. For example, I'm very confident when I do a rip with Decrypter, for me it always works. I don't need a ripper built in. Besides, to my knowledge, "Shrink" does not deal with Macrovision, so I'd be insecure using it at this time.
DVD2One is wise not to announce new rev features until it proves feasible. I think we should all be thankful that we have such a great product at such a reasonable price. Also be happy that DVD2One doesn't just release a new rev without feeling very secure that it will work properly. Think about it...or not. LOL
Sorry for the long-winded post :bigsmile:
