76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: jv16 PowerTools - using Indiegogo to 'fund'' open-sourcing it on: March 13, 2014, 11:14:33 AM
The well respected charter member is entitled to think whatever thoughts he may want to, but allow me to quote another well respected charter member:

Macecraft has historically been anything but greedy.  Freeware for years, JV16 Power Tools is now a modest $29.95.  Yearly upgrade fees are $6.95.  This is their (pretty damn relaxed) policy on licensing for personal users.  There's no activation or other baggage.

"A single personal license can be used with up to five personal computers at your home if the computers are mainly used only by you or the members of your family."

The point being that some of us believes Jouni Vuorio (author & owner of Macecraft JV16) to be quite okay; you know, "our kind of guy".

I don't know if JV16 will exist tomorrow, but until further notice JV16 is regularly updated.

On another angle, Jouni Vuorio has on more than one occasion acted somewhat "naive".

sorry, my first post was too hasty and superficial

-------------

Now I am your camera
when you look at me, I am not looking at me but at you
It may seem that you and I are looking in opposite directions
when you look to the left, I will look to the right
Well, how come I am not looking down, when you are looking up?
- "Strikes me as strange" -
When you are looking to the left, you are not looking to the right
- eh, that sounds stupid to even mention -
but it is the point!
We are not looking in opposite directions,
we are just looking from different positions!
we are both looking at different targets, and from different locations
So it would be more strange, if what we saw, were the same.

may be, but that is how we see you;

That's great news, Curt.  Thanks for letting us know.

^thank YOU, cyberdiva: You were "my girlfriend":

I hope you don't mind too much...

83  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What happened? on: March 11, 2014, 04:41:50 AM
I followed diva's recommendation and posted in the forum. They kindly gave the proper address for Magix Support, whom I now have written. Let them first enjoy their week-end and then maybe answer me no later than Tuesday.

Wow; sometimes one really can be lucky! Back in the days when I (felt that I) had been paying and paying an endless amount of money to Magix and Xara, I lost my trust in them  ~ I felt they were conmen.

This time I was pleasantly surprised! Without arguing they offered to donate me a new license key for an international Xara version! Installing "as we speak"

Have to say it isn't clear how the new licensing system will work with old licenses - I hope they don't have to go through the hassle with lifetime licenses of contacting them for new licenses when new versions are released.
Not sure what you mean.

I am not Carol, but.... It is my impression that Carol most likely was talking about the form of the new license...: "Will the next form be the same as the old: ID: 1RK12-A12RK Key: 1ABC-A1A1-1ABC-ABCD , or will I have to contact support to (freely) get my license renewed because the new form is different, say, Key: 1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1-1CRK-R1K1" ?

------

I actually came to remind what 4wd said: It is important to remember that the current license merely is good for a single pc. I have tested a licensed MBytes on this machine, so I had to purchase a new license, just to be able to test it again for a fair price on my next machine.

Am I wrong about that?  Is today's lifetime license good for 3 PCs?
Current Lifetime license is only good for 1 PC - as shown when purchasing.

Let us be reminded that Magix and Xara are (is) German. The French part is 01Net magazine:

Or, you could always offer it as a quiz prize here on DC.

^no; I have activated the license. Several times I installed international versions and was able to get an English interface, but each time the program then unregistered. So when I said "I couldn't change the user's interface", I should have added "and keep the license active".

C'est la vie!
92  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Do you want to talk about it? on: March 08, 2014, 01:59:49 AM
Somewhere on the Internet I saw an article saying that some French 01Net site was having a draw in which I could win a license for MAGIX Photo Graphic Designer 2013 (today €70, but €90 when new). If the MAGIX company over the years had kept the same family names for their programs, Photo Graphic Designer 2013 would be identical to "Xara Xtreme 8". I used to have Xara Xtreme 5, so I knew at once that Photo Graphic Designer 2013 would be a fine program to have for free.

I went to this French page and gave one of my email addresses, in order to participate in the drawing, and a few weeks later (a week ago) I received a free license key for MAGIX Photo Graphic Designer 2013!  
thumbs up

That sounded okay, didn't it? So why is this something you want to talk about, Curt? Well, let me quote myself, but this time the full sentence I didn't quite finish at first: "a few weeks later (a week ago) I received a free license key for MAGIX Photo Graphic Designer 2013 in French!".

In French!

Of course I don't just mean the email was in French - no, the program!
I cannot change the user's interface of the program into an English version!
I have tried this and that, but my license seems to be is for the French version only!

French is not dangerous when it is situated on the Internet; use Google! But this is located on my desktop, isn't it; there is no auto-translation here! I really don't have the patience to investigate my new fantastic program one line at a time, because I know that the next time I open it, I will have forgotten where that line was, and what it meant.

Well, this happened to me.
I won a fine program, but I really can't use it.

We need a thread for those moments when something just happened to you, and on one side you want to tell about it, maybe even talk about it, but on the other side it's not so big a story that it should have its own thread. Then you can maybe come here and tell about it?!

my main concern was that a screenshot most likely would produce a very large picture, and though large pictures work wonderful well on desktop monitors, they doesn't work at all on smart phone screens. The new generation of youngsters all use smart phones.

Anyway, forgive me having made noise, I will now keep silent and enjoy your teaching on video editing.

Download MediaInfo and open one of your video files with it. Take a screenshot ...

1) maybe "and click Save to text file" ... rather than a screenshot.

2) then come here and click "preview", and on the new page click [SP] and post the text (not the file) inside the brackets ]text[
