I would like to see what the potential demand is for a dual-layer DVD release of the L-L Lightroom v.1 tutorial for possible release in May.
The cost would be slightly higher than the download and with the addition of shipping

Generally speaking (and in this case too) I am for the download version for tutorials(quick, up-to-date and cheaper),
while I much prefer the high quality DVD for the reports, interviews, slide show etc like LL-VJ.

Of course I can understand very well those on dial-up willing to get the tutorials on DVD...

I do favor download, BUT

I just ordered, and downloaded....

all the files!!!

Later, I see in another window that I was NOT supposed to download the placeholders.
No big deal, EXCEPT the notice that you are wasting download on placeholders is not to be found on the sequence that goes directly to download from order.

I had assumed it was a bridge as is often used to daisy chain videos (I actually use myself in training.)

As one who just liked the idea, did no reading of the blurbes (kind of trust LL to have interesting stuff), so I did not see the caution (and I went back and verified that the dowload waste notice is not part of the order sequence.)

2 more downloads are more than enough even for fumble fingers, but it would be nice if someone put the notice ON THE SAME PAGE as the downloads!

Just drop a line to customer service.  Steve will reset your download counter.

I would buy the DVD if it was coming out at the same time; as it is, I'll buy the downloads. Biggest difference for me would be that I could relax and watch the DVD on a big screen, with a Coke, and with the downloads, I'll have to sit here at this @#$% computer and look at it.

I burned it to a DVD to do just that. I used ProShow Gold, no problem, works decent.

But, it took about an hour on a richeous machine to produce the 20-minute DVD. That made me vote for DVD - actually, I'd like both, instant gratification of the download and the convenience of a commercial DVD.

Nevertheless, it looks like we beat the delay in border customs in an indirect way.

I just downloaded the introduction, but I would much prefer to buy this on DVD.

I have purchased the download, though not without incident which I have emailed about separately.  All in all I would prefer the DVD version.

Downloaded the intro, watched it. Enjoyed the information and the heightened sense of anticipation.

I will burn the segments to a DVD when I have them all. In the meantime I like to see them immediately.

For those of us who are fairly familiar with Lightroom's appearance, the visual quality limitations of the download are tolerable. But given the perfectionist nature of photographers, it seems a DVD version is a no brainer. Had a DVD version been available, especially at a reasonable cost, I would have opted for it over the download without hesitation. I like to view/read all instructions with crystal clear vision and I like to have my visuals occupy more screen space. The Quick Time Player screen is too small for my tastes and enlarging it slightly quickly creates a blurred image: not a good thing when you're capturing screen images off a laptop.

Nonetheless, I'm grateful for the info and I really appreciate the great value. I was shocked that the download was only $12. The information provided and the sexy vocal tones of Mike and Jeff are worth much more even if the screen went black. Can't help but wonder if Martin is angry: $12 for Schewe/Reichmann sure beats $40 for a book that will be obsolete in 6 months. (OK, so I exaggerate. I adore Martin.    )

I had the same problem. My solution was as follows;  It was a setup issue with QT. In Edit > Preference > Quicktime Preferences > Advanced tab  in the Video dialog box I unclicked the Direct X radio button and clicked the Safe Mode (GDI only) and everything worked as it should. I hope this helps.

Chris,

A lot of people have indicated interest in the DVD, although poll shows only 35%, I was wondering if you have plans to bring the DVD anytime soon.
