My question relating to this topic is: How can (if it ispossible) I set diffrent slides to individual time durations in a slideshow, this is in Slideshow Assistant in Rx2011 Pro which I just bought hopeing that it would have a fairly robust slideshow creator. The following info will help frame my broader question. I have been using Photoshop elements to do my photo editing, and previously also its create a slide show subprogram, which has a lot of good features(some of which I can yield on to get as an end result a HD 16:9 format slide show DVD movie). With my previous Rx products I outputed from PSE the best quality .wmv file and then used Videowave to add my sound tracks, effects, etc., and My DVD to create the best available DVD movie. However this does not provide me a high quality HD 1920x1080 input to Videowave and then MyDVD and my final burn lacks the quality I desire.
So I edit my pics (** all to 16:9, 1920x1080, 240dpi) and I am looking for a slide show creator that will maintain the fidelity of this input ( and I can give up more sophisticated Pan and Zoom features, and even tools to rearrange the order of slides in large projects (300-400 slides) but I would really like to be able to set various time durations for individual slides( word slides need time to be read). Since I noticed that the alternate output of the slide show creator in Rx2011 is: AVC(H.264) and I can select in the process flow AVCHD 1920 X 1080/24p and the regular DVD and even better AVCHD DVD for my final burn: AND, the results are fantastic, I feel I am getting the high quality DVD slide show I have been looking for.
So since I am learning the new features in Rx2011, my broader question is: Have I missed something? Since I am happy with PSE8 picture editing is there another product (from anyone) that will take my final edit pictures(per above **format) that will have most of the features I desire, and will provide a compatible HD input to Videowave? NOTE: In my sample test case, even though I did use the output option to create the various files from each, so I could see what the program did; I actually used the "send direct to" feature to go directly from slideshow creator>Videowave>MyDVD and I really like it.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide me on this issue.
