Changing the Duration of SOME of the slides


Cookies

Question

I'd like to have some of my slides last for 5 seconds, and then the next dozen or so slides last only 2.5 seconds, and the next ones 5 seconds, and the next batch 7 seconds or so (to match the mood of the music). Is there any way to change the length of slides a batch at a time, or do I have only two choices: one at a time or the entire slideshow?

Hi Cookie,

 

Unfortunately, I think you are correct in saying "one at a time or the entire slideshow". I do not think there is a way to change the duration of only some of the slides as a "batch".

 

You could put the 5 second slides in a separate Videowave project and then output that to a video file. Do the same with all the other slides of different duration. Then bring all those video files into a single Videowave project. Just my opinion, but that seems to be more work than just changing the duration of the slides one at a time.

 

 

Thanks Merv! This was what I was suspecting/ afraid of, since I hadn't read anything about batch changes in the manual or in my How to Use EMC book. Oh well, back to one at a time. But at least now I know, which is very reassuring on the nerves (don't feel like I'm being an idiot and wasting a lot of time). Thanks again! :)

Your welcome, but I am sorry I did not have more suggestions to offer. I have been where you are many times, that is, trying to figure out how to do something only to find out it can't be done. Although painful, that is the way we learn. :)

To put in a link, go to that post, and use your mouse to copy the URL in the address bar. Type your reply in the thread that it applies to, right click, and paste the URL. It will show up when you add your reply in the thread.

 

That pinned post only tells how to change the duration of one slide or all slides. There is no way to batch 10 slides to one duration and then the next 10 slides to another duration other than to do them individually.
