Nero Kwik Media Editor's Review

Nero is known mostly for its legendary disc burning software that has metamorphosed into a media editing powerhouse over a decade. The multimedia suite offered by the company caters to needs of intermediate and advanced users well but its price and steep hardware requirement often acts as a deterrent for casual users. They refer using less expensive and lighter tools for media burning and management needs. The Nero Kwik Media is basically a revamp of the company’s ageing MediaHub that caters to this section. The setup takes some time as it involves running some sub processes. If you are not careful, a third party toolbar gets added to your web browser during the process. At the end, a reboot is required. It is a freeware and supports Windows XP and subsequent versions.

Upon first launch, Kwik Media shows a filmstrip-like UI replete with thumbnails of the videos and image stored in your PC. The UI resembles its predecessor, aka MediaHub. It has 4 links- Burn & Copy Disc,Be Creative,Enjoy Your Media and Media Library. In default mode, the application lets you do only disc copy and burn music CD. The tool tips are ideal for beginners. The UI advantage is not much over rivals like WMP or iTunes.

Kwik Media is capable of watching folders with media in PC and importing them to its library. It also deals well with Window 7 libraries. You can also import media from an attached device. To sync Android phones with iTunes libraries you need to configure the model rightly. Besides, you will have to shell out money for the Move It plugin. Syncing Android phones to WMP is also possible.

Kwik's Music view is adequate for most users. It lets you play files, add files to playlist and burn music on discs. However, it cannot beat iTunes' Genius playlists. Apple iTunes as well as Windows Media Player also plays web radio.

Kwik Media does a fair job of image organizing and management. The application comes with basic image editing tools too. It lets you remove red eye from images and adjust exposure,color temperature etc. You will miss the Fill Light slider present in Picasa. There are eight image effects which you can play with. The Red-eye removal tool works very well. If you buy another plug-in, the application lets you use face-recognition too. However, rival applications you use this for free. You will be able to generate slideshows with background audio as well. There are some customization options for that. The themes are rather aesthetic.

When it comes to playing back and organizing video files, Kwik Media does not fall short. You will miss the WMP enhancements though. It does not support slow motion playback either.

The Nero Kwik Burn add-on needs to be installed to burn anything apart from music CDs. It lets you burn DVDs too. AVCHD burning is not supported. There is no add-ons like a backup module or audio editor bundled with the suite.

Positive Points:
-
Offers comprehensive media management despite being freeware.
- Android phone syncing with iTunes, WMP.
- Slideshow generation.
- Numerous plugins available to extend capability.

Negative Points:
-
The basic application lacks many features.
- Tries to bundle in third party software during installation.
- No backup option and no media editor provided.
- Many features require extra plug-in purchasing.

Conclusion:

Nero Kwik Media does offer a significant step up from its predecessor. Its UI is sleek and quite user friendly. The application fares well with image, music, and video handling. The syncing with iTunes and WMP is a cool feature Android phone owners will like. You can create appealing slideshows with music with the application. However, in some key areas the application gets outshined by rival contenders. Many features you get for free in WMP need separate purchase here. It can be tedious and may deter users looking for a capable but free media management suite. The fact that the application tries to pack in unrelated third party software during installation may not be pleasant to some users as well.

Rating: 3/5







Nero Kwik Media Publisher's Description

Nero Kwik Media is a light and free media manager with which you can organize, edit, and share your music, photos, videos, and data. Imagine iTunes and iPhoto rolled into one, then trimmed in half. While this download is technically &free,& there is one caveat: you'll have to purchase some of its functionality in the form of &apps& listed in Nero's built-in store. Sure, most of these add-ons aren't too expensive, but it's a shame that a few of them (like Nero Kwik Play, a video decoder) don't come with the download. That said, if you're mainly looking for a single hub through which to access all your media, along with maybe a few basic editing and creative tools, Nero Kwik Media is a great option.

When you launch the program, Kwik Media presents you with a menu of options in four distinct categories: Media Library, where you organize and import files; Enjoy your Media, for playing and listening; Burn & Copy, for just that; and Be Creative, where you can make slide shows or playlists or publish to the Web. It's all very straightforward, and adding files is easy using the Import tool or by dragging and dropping into the interface. In fact, performing any staple multimedia functions--editing photos, creating slide shows, burning to data disc--should be a breeze for even the greenest users.
