Awesome software, excellent webcam! The company even has outstanding customer support: the webcam that came in the box recorded sound, but had no video signal. I contacted ZuLogic and they shipped a new webcam out right away. My son and I had no problem producing a short little movie from his story. Real work time for us was probably a couple of weeks, though we spread it out over a few months of weekends. I like that the Zu3D software will import video from my camera (or stills) and drop it right into the timeline. The working files are bitmaps (.bmp) and .wav audio files. I used Zu3D to record an audio clip, then dug the .wav file out and used Audacity to add a few more effects, before returning the audio file to my movie. The software also recognized the other webcam on my computer and gave us the option to use that instead. However, the Starcam in the box has a much better lens for shooting close-ups of toys and clay. If you're not running this on a laptop, plan...
Easy to use, great customer service. The iPad code worked for the PC. Live recording of sound has some bugs but that may be a memory problem on my computer. Francesca in Customer service is working with me to solve this problem and I truly appreciate it. That's why I'm giving it 5 stars, my daughter whose 10 gives it five stars because it's perfect for beginners and every one else as well. UPDATE: It wasn't the program that had bugs, you need you setup microphone in your windows and when you start recording you have to change camera to USB 2.0 camera. It works with the help to Francesca from customer service!
This has given hours of fun to the kids - 10, 8 and even with some help the 6 year old. When they get a new Lego set, they soon are creating a little animation with it. The only issue we had was that the camera that came with it died soon after starting to use it, but ZuLogic customer service refunded the value of the camera right away via PayPal and we were able to get a nice high res webcam which works very well with the software. We have posted a few of the creations on youTube and the music and sound effects that come with the package really add to the movies they make. Granted that it is not professional level, it is capable of very nice work.
