When purchasing the Platinum Suite from a third-party vendor

If you do not purchase Nero Platinum Suite directly from Nero (e.g. via Amazon, eBay, Software Store, etc.), you can create a Nero Account directly in Nero Start.

Launch Nero Start, enter your email address in the first screen, and Nero Start will check to see if a Nero Account is already registered with that email address. If no such Nero Account exists, Nero Start will help you create a new Nero Account.

During registration, your password for the new Nero Account will be sent to the email address you provided. Enter the password in Nero Start to complete the registration of your Nero Account.

What is new in ‘Nero Start’?

Starting with Nero 2019 generation, ‘Nero Start’ (to some also known as Nero Launcher) comes in a refreshed design and updated workflows. Now, you will get going with your Nero product much more easily and achieve result faster than before.

The new user interface with completely updated design and workflows now includes animated buttons, which make the former next/previous page behavior superfluous. This way, you can directly open the info and video tutorial windows per application, now.

Moreover, it integrates a last used application function and gives prominent access to new Nero KnowHow PLUS. Via a slider, Nero Start allows you to change the UI between a lighter and a darker UI version.

Another highlight is ‘1-Click Video Story‘, that integrates into ‘Nero QuickStart’. Simply drag & drop photos or videos to the drop zone and your files will load automatically with a predesigned movie theme inside of Nero Video. Also see Nero KnowHow 00139.

‘Nero Start’ is available for all Nero Suite and standalone products, and also includes access to new ‘Nero KnowHow PLUS’.

Changes in the Version Installation Behavior

First published with Nero 2019, ‘Nero Start’ becomes independent of the installed Nero Suite generation. It is part of the Nero product installer but installs individually as ’Nero Core’ (including Nero Start, Nero Control Center, Nero KnowHow PLUS, and  Nero Update), after which the Suite applications will be installed.

From Nero 2019, ‘Nero Start’ will reside on the system and integrate with the Nero product version you own. Your product version displays prominently in the header of Nero Start. Even if you uninstall Nero Suite, ‘Nero Start’ with ‘NeroKnowHow PLUS’ and ‘Nero ControlCenter’ will still be available and usable.

Because ‘Nero Start’ will be generation independent, you will no longer see a version number associated to the Nero icon in Windows Start Menu. The icon will not say ‘Nero 2019’, but will just say ‘Nero’, or ‘Nero Start’ respectively. If a desktop shortcut was not added automatically, clicking on this icon in Windows Start Menu, will launch the application and automatically create a desktop shortcut for ’Nero Start’.

What to do if ‘Nero 2019’ was not installed, but only ‘Nero Core’

In some circumstances, it can happen that after the initial installation of Windows prerequisites and ‘Nero Core’, the installer will ask you to reboot. In most cases, the installation for Nero applications will automatically continue after the reboot.

In the rare case that the installation does not continue automatically, please run the installer you received with your Nero ESD purchase or run the Nero program installer on the DVD of your Nero retail product again, to finalize the installation.

How can I set my favorite Theme in 1-Click Video Story?

This is really easy as shown here.

If you have already used 1-Click Video Story and your project is loaded, you will have access to the theme selection window. Otherwise, please open a project in Express or Advanced Editing and drag one or more photo or video assets into the storyboard or timeline. Now open the theme selection box in Nero Video by clicking on the ‘Themes’ button top of the timeline/storyboard. The default template is shown top right.

1-Click_default

Go to the theme selection list left hand side and select a new theme (e.g. Nostalgic-2). Your choice will be shown top right as a new theme for default selection.

1-Click_select new

Set the mark for using the selected theme as a new default theme in 1-Click Video Story. The new default theme (Nostalgic-2) will be set and will now be used as the default template any time you utilize 1-Click Video Story.

What is ‘1-Click Video Story’ and how can I use it?

‘1-Click Video Story’ is a comfortable way to create professional slideshows and movies just via drag & drop, and one click, only. From Nero 2019 the feature is accessible via the drop zone in Nero Start and via the drop zone in Nero Video.

This unique feature helps creating polished movies and slideshows in a snap. Simply drag & drop photos and videos to the drop zone in Nero Video and select ‘1-Click Video Story’. All files will automatically be loaded into a pre-designed video project complete with intro and outro sequence, effects, captions and matching music. Simply preview the video project, export, and share it.

‘1-Click Video Story’ works with landscape footage (TV) as well as vertical photos and videos (smartphones). So, if you drag only vertical footage into the drop zone, Nero Video will automatically load your project into a vertical video project. If you drag & drop just landscape or mixed footage (landscape and vertical), Nero Video will open a TV landscape project and automatically remove the black bars in your vertical footage.

Tip: By default ‘1-Click Video Story’ uses a preloaded template. However, you have an easy option to use any of the theme templates in your product as your favorite personalized template for ‘1-Click Video Story’. For more details, see Nero KnowHow 00140.

Take a look at the easy steps below.
