Do not use dvdExpress for your slideshows but use myDVD.

 

How long in time is your slideshow?

The slideshow is about 53 minutes. The video and audio vary by about 6 or 7 seconds. I even tried matching video and audio length to production.

I think I misread your initial post.

 

Are you talking about "blank spots" in the audio or "blank spots" in the video?

What does "video and audio vary by about 6 or 7 seconds" mean?

 

Perhaps you should describe exactly what you are doing and what is happening.

Tried a second dvd with My DVD. About 40 blank spots...different from the first try with DVD express. The first DVD had over 50 blank spots. Any other possibilities?

By blank spots, I mean missing pictures. The audio runs fine, even when the blank spot appear. Also, I used the "fit audio and video" on the file menu thinking the audio length and video length difference was causing the problem.

I hope you are using RW DVDs for burning until you get your problem sorted out.

 

Are you using transitions in your project?

Some things to try:

-"burn" to an image file or folder set and see if those play correctly with a software player such as VLC.

-change the render setting under Tools/option

There are several possibilities.

1) Update thew drivers for your video card/chip

2) Resize the images so that they have less quality (smaller). If you are making a standard DVD, you won't notice the differenve in the final product. Are any of your pictures much larger than about 3-4 mb?

3) Make sure you have nothing else running during the encoding(rendering).

What are your system specs? Did you try changing the rendering setting?
