This is the place to discuss DVdoctor's review of Tenomichi's 3D Edit, a most unusual program that uses DirectX 9 3D acceleration to power the rendering of effects, and also the interface itself.

Here's the link to the review

I know that the traffic through Tenomichi's site has climbed massively since our review went live.

So I was wondering if any of the many people who've now downloaded it would like to comment about it and tell us how their view compares to that of our review.

Genuinely surprised that, seemingly, no one here as bothered to try out this program.

Has anyone here tried it?

If not, why not?

And, if you have tried it, what are your thoughts?

Bob,

can't try it as my Graphics card is not up to the task, think this will be the case with a few people. I have the Geoforce FX5200 which works well enough with Pinnacle Edition but not good enough with the Tenomichi editor.

Likewise, don't have a powerful enough graphics card.

Although an interesting concept, the Tenomichi would not be something I could ever consider for purchase. The limitations of something that is only DV in and out make it unsuitable for efficient commercial editing. And my heart sank when I saw yet another non-standard, 'toytown' screen design.

I'm trying out the latest version at the moment and the output options are increased considerably. As well as DV, there is now MPEG-1, 2 and 4, DivX, WMV, HDV (!) and WMV HD. The interface has also had a menu bar added along the top and the Browser Tool has been improved with an Explore button. This gives access to your drive and directory setup much more quickly than before.

One implication of my phrase 'efficient commercial editing' was being able to offer analogue input and output. Examples - (1) the lady from a local construction firm who turned up last Thursday with a VHS from a 'drain survey camera' to transfer to 2 x DVD, (2) the damaged DV tape that arrived in the post from Slough for transfer of the bits that could be rescued on to VHS.

Nice to see the additional output formats - but analogue in and out are still vital.

I will give it a try on the big machine , i having nothing else approaching the power required for this program.

i didn't think trying it on a pc with a g400 matrox card will do it any favours.

Well, a G400 wouldn't work at all - and neither would a Parhelia, because despite Matrox's claims it never was and never will be a DirectX 9 graphics card.

And, Ray, even the version of 3D Edit I tested for the review supported capture from WDM devices. So that means pretty much any capture device, including VIVO graphics cards, TV tuners, and all manner of cheap USB adapters. I've tried it with the VIVO on my Radeon X800XT and it worked just fine.
