Create Slideshow On Loop

Question

Hi,

I am using Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning software V 14.0.49.2;5.0.0.0 I would like to create a slideshow to run in a loop at My Fathers wake and funeral. The Funeral Director asked that it be on a DVD. I have been able to create a slideshow file with background sound,however, I am unable to play in a loop. I double click and it opens and plays correctly just stops when finished. After I add photos and sound files and select burn it creates two folders, ROXIO PLASMA and VIDEO_TS and when inserted auto runs to a colored background with one picture tile top center.

Thank you for any help!

Mark

When you create your project, you need to set it up to have no menu (the initial colored background with the picture on it).

 

I don't have that version in front of me, but I think if you select New Project there will be an option for "DVD - No Menu" or something to that effect. I don't know if there's a way to "convert" your existing project or not, hopefully someone else will have that information handy. But a no-menu DVD typically starts and loops automatically.

 

I understand what you're doing, I did a couple of those for my mother, and my mother-in-law about a year ago.

 

Best wishes.

Hi Dave and Magnetoram,

I am running this software, so perhaps I can help. I don't usually make slideshows, so please bear with me :)

 

As Dave said, you need a DVD without a menu if you want to have your slideshow looping. Roxio Slideshow Assistant makes the slideshow, and MyDVD burns it to disc.

The problem is that starting in the Slideshow Assistant [Menu item Photo > Create slideshows ] leaves you in MyDVD with a menu unless you do it in two steps.

 

There are two ways to get what you want. [A] is easiest is the two-step way

 

[A] Video/Movies > Create DVDs and select New Project; DVD, no menus

-select Add Slideshow

-create your slideshow

-burn

 

Photo > Create slideshows and make your slideshow.

-When made, resist the urge to "Burn to disc" - that will send it to MyDVD with a menu that you can't get rid of.

-instead, use "Create File" which will make a WMV file in your 'My Videos' folder

-now run MyDVD [Videos/Movies > Create DVDs] and select a New Project; DVD, no menus

-add the .WMV file you made, and then burn to disc.

 

Hope this helped,

 

Brendon
