    Burning Dvd Video, But Too Big?

    This is all too flipping COMPLICATED!!! Why can't they just make an easy to use product! My formally mpeg4 file has been converted to a dv file & it has become over 5 GB. (from just over 3) Now it's too big to put on a regular dvd. I've spent DAYS, trying to make a normal dvd with what's touted as "the swiss army knife" the "does it all" program with still nothing to show for all my effort.

    Poor Dvd Quality

    How does one "upscale to smooth the edges"?

    Poor Dvd Quality

    I too have a MacBook Pro with Retina display. I've wasted several days and about 20 dvd's trying to get a good quality picture on my burned dvd. I've tried converting it to 16:9 DV and that didn't make a difference either. They're all extremely degraded in quality. I'm trying to make a standard (?) dvd to be played on a regular dvd player.

    Mp3 Files And Photoshow

    My songs are not itunes plus. But the itunes help agent said that I could use them in other applications like a slideshow. I don't know if I authorized my computer to play the music via the instructions from iTunes (I don't even know what that really means) No, I did not try what your suggested using Amazon.com music. I'll have to read that again & try it. (I think it's a glitch with Roxio becaue my "burn audio CD" program crashes the whole Roxio program and "make mp3 DVD" also crashes and closes Roxio program. Ah, I wondered if all mp3 files were equal!!! Some have an ending of mp3 and some have an ending of mp Layer 3 at the end. I'll have to look up what the properties are. What specifically should I be looking for? I also wondered about PhotoShow support and Roxio Support (not being the same). huh!!! thanks, I will check on your last reply and see what I can do.

    Mp3 Files And Photoshow

    I've looked into intunes and they assure me that their songs are unlocked. I tried several songs on photoshow but still nothing doing. In a brief glimpse of a window that popped up, it said something about a script error, but it vanished so quickly if I blinked I would have missed it completely. The first pop up window telling me about the script error only comes up sometimes.

    Mp3 Files And Photoshow

    I purchased an album of songs from itunes & tried to use one of the songs in my photoshow. It wouldn't accept it. I did change the format from m4u to mp3, but it still didn't work. I'm using photoshow 6. Itunes said their music is not locked anymore and the problem is probably on Roxio's side. Also, several other songs weren't accepted. Any suggestions/help/solutions? thanks

    Music

    Just to let you know, I finally updated my PhotoShow and now the program works. Thank you mlp

    Music

    I'm using Photoshow which is an extra program. It's Roxio Photoshow. There are no transitions, it all done automatically for me. I have to try & get the music lined up as best as I can. It's not precise like the slideshow which I can edit as a video file. It's just over 8 minutes long. The reason I'm using Photoshow instead of a slideshow is because it has a better selection of slideshow overlays, video effects and text effects.

    Music

    While making a photoshow, my music which is perfectly lined up with the pictures in the preview mode is different and out of sync in the finished produuct mode. I've re-done it several times but to no avail. How do I fix this? Thanks mlp
  10. Hi Again, I've made a slideshow..........edited it in advanced video edit..........exported & burned it as an ARCHD 1920x1080i file. It is now on my desktop & I can watch it. BUT, I want to make a HD DVD from it. I don't know how to do that. Have checked the manual, but it doesn't say. Any available help? thanks

    Upload Slideshow To Photoshow

    I checked out utube & vimeo. Vimeo takes only video, not slideshows. (as far as I can figure out) I don't trust utube. I'll just have to send it by snail mail on a dvd. Wasted a lot of time but learned something too. Thanks for all the help.

    Upload Slideshow To Photoshow

    Thank you.......I can't think anymore today...been at it all day . Phoned photoshow support again, was on for a couple hours. We tried converting the video to different formats to see if we could upload them. WE downsized them, changed them into multiple formats, but to no avail. Photo show did not recognize any of the files, mine or his when he tried them on his side.. They are going to get back to me when they have a solution. As for the splitting, I might try that. However, I've realized that Photoshow 6 doesn't allow for a widescreen presentation. (at least the one I use) Don't know why!!! All the TV's today are widescreen. So if I were to get my file on to my site, the heads would be cut off & other important parts of my pics would be missing. That's why I went to the slideshow production in the first place. By the way, my slideshow/video presentation is 350 MB. Again thanks for the input.

    Upload Slideshow To Photoshow

    Yes, I did pay for the premium account. ANd I did make a photoshow that was about 10 minutes long, whcih is well over 50 mb. I also phoned photoshow support line yesterday & they said that I couldn't upload videos. But....... it clearly states as you pointed out, video files CAN be uploaded. Why don't these things come with manuals???!!!!! And my family is scattered all over the country..........internet is faster. ANd I have paid for this site, I should be able to use it without all this fuss! It's like the right hand is not connected to the same brain/body as the left hand. (my frustration seeping out)

    Upload Slideshow To Photoshow

    Thanks.............that works only for photos. I just tried to upload my iso file & even converted it to a WMA file & tried to upload it. But it only takes photos. Somehow I've lost my video file of this clip as well. Must be when I made it into an iso file. Anyway, I'm going to see if I can shrink it down so I can send it through email. thank you for all your time & effort. ............ps ..If you know how I can get my iso file to turn into a video file that would be wonderful

    Upload Slideshow To Photoshow

    Well, shaw cable was not the person to find out all this info. No, I do not want to put my stuff on TV. I don't know if I have the premiere edition or not. I did pay for a one year subscription for roxio photoshow where I can store & share my photoshows at a site ... here is the web address http://www.photoshow.com/home/start All I want to do is somehow get this slideshow that I made (4 minutes long) & edited in/as a video file,) to my kids to watch. I just need to do something (I don't know what) to get it over the internet to them in a watchable format. It would be nice if I could put it on my roxio photoshow site (my own private site until my subscription runs out) thanks for taking the time to write up all that stuff. m
