[QUOTE=alan1476;2058063]I didnt say you recommended it Jimbo, but I was told by the people from NextCopy that they had no affiliations with the old 321 Studios, now they could have been lying to me, but I don’t think so, I think its more like they wanted the old 321 Studio business so they gave a discount to the old users, but this company is not affiliated with them, I dont know this for a fact, its just what was told to me. NextCopy is still a very viable program, we even have a sub-forum for it here.[/QUOTE]
You are on the money there alan1476, 321 was indeed a great program in its time and when the support was gone DVDneXtCOPY continued email only support and also asked those users to give advice how to better the program. This was how DNC was evolved.
[QUOTE=The Kipper;2058194]I have heard that NextCopy bought the code from those who bought the code from 321 originally. Who knows for sure is anybody’s guess. Anyways there are enough similarities between the two programs to give you the impression they are one in the same. Just my opinion, no evidence, just what I have heard.[/QUOTE]
I think the biggest issue to believe or want to on this was the old 321 GUI? I thought it was ugly as well and told them they should veer away from that look and now we have different skins for whatever you preferences are
From what I was told by the engineers and management was pretty much what I replied to alan1476. They then rewrote the program from scratch as it doesn’t use an encoder nor a transcoder. Not to battle it out but my wife has a very good eye for detail and I made a backup of King Kong both with DNC and then another with DVD Rebuilder pro. My wife was unable to tell which copy was which and I labeled them disc one and two so I can know. However this was on only a 46" tube TV as well. Hope to get a LCD 50+" in a few months. I would go into the steam compressor but I think you remember that right? If not here’s a refresher email from the engineers as I too was wondering as well…
The StreamCompressor is all part of the DVD neXt COPY KVME
(Kinetic Vector Motion Encoder) witch is our dynamic compression
engine. It is designed with the future in mind and is newer technology
then the traditional encoders and transcoders that are now getting outdated.
Our engine is unique as it analyzes and recompresses streams in 1 step and
produces superior quality copies witch no other software is capable of.
DVD neXt COPY is the only DVD copying software on the market to use
Not defending the program or nothing it is a good tool to have and is rarely updated but it isn’t one that really needs updates either. Usually after one update it hangs tough on all title for 3 to 6 months then another update is needed again. This of course is using the machinist plugin and not anydvd or the need to rip with fab first. It has a 99% reliability rate.
Don’t get me wrong folks DVDFab & slysoft’s suite is awesome as well.
