Be the first to experience the new Nero Platinum 2018 - Don't all rush now.

Just received what is now an annual offer to upgrade in September and to be one of the first people to try Nero 2018. The cost of buying Nero 2017 with the free upgrade to 2018 is £43.75. However, yet again there is absolutely no information about what is new, upgraded or fixed in the 2018 version. Now I know this was heavily debated last year but it appears Nero don't listen to its customers. Just in case a Nero AG employee is hovering around offering their help as it says in the green box at the top of my screen. You haven't got a snowflake in hells chance of getting me to buy another product from Nero blind. Have you heard the saying; once bitten, twice shy? When you tell me what is new or updated (Such as subtitle capability. Being looked at for at least 2 years you say) I will then look further but if all you can show me is a few tweaks or bells 'n' whistles that mean absolutely nothing in the scheme of things or, you've taken yet more functionality away I won't give you a minutes further thought. You have more or less drained this well.

  • They need to concentrate solely on the editor burning to disc will be dead within 5 years and when that is gone they will only have the editor to fall back on so time to start adding features to rival Sony Vegas.

  • Since5.5,

    There's no mention of bug fixes. For example, there's the bug involving cue sheets introduced into Nero 2017 Burning ROM in an update in March. See, for example, topic When I open a cue file, Nero Platinum 2017 says the file is to big to burn.. Has that been fixed? Will it ever be fixed in Nero 2017?

    That's one of many!

    There is a current topic concerning "blurriness" when attempting to create a DVD from a HD video using Nero 10. See topic Blurry video. In a little experiemnt I did, I found that Nero Video 2017 isn't quite all it could be either. Have there been any improvments made in the scaling algoriths?

    Here's a 1920x1080 image, followed by several rescaled images using GIMP, Microsoft Paint, and Nero 2017 Video's snapshot capability:

  • Hi everyone, just joined the forum and have same questions to be answered before I blindly commit to early bird pre-order of Nero 2018. I've read Since5.5's comment however it doesn't really jump out at me any changes that really benefit me. Other than having the shiny latest and greatest version what justification is there to upgrade?
    • If the new "features" don't interest you that much, stick with your current version. I got burned - pardon the pun - by thinking I had to change to Nero 2015 from Nero 12 to work on Windows 10. Turns out that 12 and older versions than 12 do in fact work on Windows 10 (although not "officially" supported).

      I had a copy of Nero 2016 that was only slightly different to 2015, didn't bother going to 2017 and will not be going to 2018.

  • One particular feature I'm curious is the ability to burn Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. I'm not sure you can even purchase blank media yet. But if this a new feature unlocked in Nero 2018 I would certainly buy it.

  • You've more or less answered your own question. You simply don't know at this point what is new or fixed in the new version. What we do know is there have been years where it just wasn't worth the upgrade price, will this year be any different? Not long to wait to find out so why buy now?

  • One thing for certain- you won't be able to burn HD Audio as a result of the lawsuit brought against Nero a couple of years ago by DTS, Inc. Nero isn't even allowed to decode it.

  • My biggest beef with Nero is it won't recognize many MKV files and I have to recode them to something else less intricate I guess. The upgrade price should be $20 repeat for customers for what you get and especially when you have to re-install they even hassle you online.
