Jimco Software Reviews - SpiceMASTER 2.5 Pro (continued)
Usability : 5/5
SpiceMASTER is extremely usable. It's fast and easy to tweak a setting even after it has been applied. SpiceMASTER keeps track of previous settings so that you can apply them easily, it makes it easy to see the configuration at a glance without struggling through nested dialogs. The ability to bypass the Vegas plug-in window and go directly to the SpiceMASTER window is a great feature.
Interface : 5/5
SpiceMaster's interface is clean and easy to use. I like the fact that all settings have sliders and that it's so easy to see the result of changing a setting.
Intuitiveness : 5/5
SpiceMASTER is a great example of usability also directly correlating to intuitiveness. The fact that you can quickly see the effect of every change makes it quite intuitive. SpiceMASTER provides visual feedback to everything that you do. Great job, Pixelan!
Features : 5/5
It would be enough for a 5/5 without the Mixer and the ability to transform any Vegas plug-in. SpiceMASTER offers an almost endless array of choices in just about everything. You won't be able to think of a feature that's missing.
Documentation : 5/5
The documentation in SpiceMASTER is first-rate. Not only does Pixelan concisely explain each setting, but they show you numerous high-quality screen shots to show you how each setting affects the output. No guesswork required.
Price vs. Value Ratio : 5/5
SpiceMASTER Pro is only $149. A version with fewer features is available for $59. These prices are great for the value that you will get from these products. Use SpiceMASTER in one video project and it's paid for itself! To get just some of these capabilities in another product, you've have to spend several hundred dollars more and it wouldn't integrate into Vegas or other video editors.
Reviewer's Tilt : 0/5
I brought no previous experience with SpiceMASTER to this review.
Overall : 5/5
I was unable to find any product on the market today that would do what SpiceMASTER will do. It is truly one of a kind in Vegas plug-ins and it does what it advertises with incredibly impressive results.
Another great thing about SpiceMASTER is that Pixelan donates at least 10% of proceeds to charity, so do a good deed and get great video effects today! Purchase SpiceMASTER.
