Description from the packaging.

Personalize your home videos with software that adds titles, graphics and special effects.

Home movies go Hollywood.

Lights. Camera. Action. Title sequence. Title sequence? And what's this? Red, yellow and pink balloons scrolling onto the screen? "Happy Birthday Tommy, Love Greg and Marilyn"?

Home movies were never like this.

But then again, that was then. This is now: the Home Video Producer. A powerful yet simple way to personalize your home videos.

Birthday parties. Holidays. Family vacations. Sporting events. Quite simply, if you filmed it, now you can develop it. With over 75 snappy full-color graphics. Eight decorative borders. Ten wonderfully different typefaces in a variety of sizes and colors.

Plus an imaginative assortment of special effects, including wipes in nine directions and scrolls in four directions.

There are ten "ready-made" video sequences you can personalize. Simply fill in the names, dates, etc., then watch the scene unfold onscreen- the work's been done! (And thanks to the simple icons on the program menu, there are no puzzling keystrokes to memorize).

Or you can create your own extensive sequences, placing graphics, text and borders anywhere on the screen you'd like.

Best of all, recording from the Home Video Producer onto videotape is easy. Simply plug your computer into the video-in jack of your camcorder or VCR. Presto. Ready to go.

Whether your a novice or a budding Spielberg, your home movies can have a happy ending (not to mention a jazzy beginning and middle) with the Home Video Producer.

  • Check out the travel graphics. They could make even the boondocks look good.
  • And now for a change of face: ten different typefaces in a variety of sizes.
  • Watch the text scroll onscreen from any of four directions.
  • Talk about a sweeping gesture: the helmet is "wiped" onscreen diagonally. In fact, the program includes wipes in nine directions.
  • You supply the names and dates. We supply the graphics. If only the wedding was this easy.
  • Plug your computer into the video-in jack of your camcorder or VCR and your ready to record.
