Locked Features in Nero Video

If Nero Standard 2018 includes Nero Video, why are some of the it's features and effects locked behind the platinum upgrade? I'm just sour because it was the reason I upgraded from 2017, but excluding this, I've had a wonderful time using Nero Video and have no complaints!

  • The number of features, such as templates, themes, transitions, and effects are the difference between Standard and Platinum. If you have v2017 Standard and you purchase v2018 Standard, you're not changing anything except when something new in v2018 is applicable to both Standard and Platinum. You can get a refund for v2018 if you've purchased it within the last 30 days.

  • Thank you for the quick reply! But honestly the more I look into this, the more it looks like you guys are promising a full piece of software, not a light version. I would be more than happy if you could show me where this information is on your website, because I couldn't find that anywhere.

    On this Your page here it doesn't mention that I won't be able use some features in Nero Video unless I upgrade to platinum. It just looks like I get the entire program.

    On your Nero Video page it doesn't mention anything about this either

    I also don't see anything about this on the box. It just says that 4 applications are in this package and one of them is Nero Video 2018.

  • I’m confused
    lol, It doesn't even mention any of that when you get the link from trying to use the effects in Nero Video 2017 and 2018. Just takes me to this page that says I get Nero Video with the Standard suite.

    Maybe put an asterisk or something next to the Nero Standard Suite noting that not all features will be unlocked in this version for people in the future, that's all.

  • Note that I'm not a Nero employee.

    I agree that some of those sites leave one wanting. If you go here-

    http://www.nero.com/enu/products/nero...&

    you can read about each product. Note that the standalone products typically have all the features that are available for that product. Almost all the feature differences between Standard and Platinum are in Nero Video.

    They used to have a page where there would be a side by side comparison of the features in Standard and Platinum. If they have one for v2018, I don't know where it is. Perhaps someone else can find it.
