This new upgrade mainly features Windows Vista comaptibility, and is free for all existing Cinematize 2 users.

Cinematize simplifies a normally difficult task with the help of a wizard type interface -- and the price:performance ratio is great.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
