My first slide show burned A-OK. I then edited then the show & added transitions and video effects. The 2nd burn resulted with still images that are not sharp and have wavy effects going on. Is this caused by the "fade" transition used between images?

For the best image quality which file extension to use?  .avi  .wmv  .dmss

Trash can full of bad quality DVD's (DVD-R) using Roxio 2010

(Reference is being made for the "Videowave Program)

If you are referring to still photos I suggest jpg file extension.

If you're referring to Video, I suggest avi file extension.

If you think it might be the "fade" transitions you are using, try another type of transition and try selecting a different transition duration and see what you get ??

Anything longer than 1 hour on a DVD will result in loss of quality.  In Create DVD (MyDVD) when you go to burn your project(s), select HQ (High Quality) AND select burn to ISO (image file).  Name the ISO and where you want it placed.  IF it encodes correctly, use the utility on the Home page to copy the ISO to a DVD.

Note: You can use the free VLC Playerto play the ISO file before you burn it to disc.  Saves the stress and strain on the wastebasket.

Note 2:  The ability to use some of the transitions properly (3D transitions) depends on your video device. Do you know what you have and have you updated the drivers for it?

Note 3: Use Edit Video -Advanced (Video Wave) to create your slide show.  Watch these.
