Heads chopped of in slideshow photos?


BigHE

Question

I am putting together a slideshow in MyDVD and the heads are chopped off in a lot of the photos. I want the photos in wide screen. I cropped the photos in 16:9 and the photo looks like I want until I preview the show. I save and the whole nine but the photo is still screwed. If I take off the "pan and zoom all" Then I have the whole photo but with those black areas around the photo. Anyway to have the photos panned and somed and still select the portion of the photo I want shown. (less legs and more head if I have to choose)

I guess I should be using video wav? I am just selecting add slide show in MyDVD and then selecting photos. It seems I would have more control/options in video wav.

Are you using the "Auto Motion" feature? If so, then the start point may already be zoomed in to the point that parts of the photo are cut off. I very seldom use the auto mode and normally do a manual "pan 7 zoom" so I can control where it pans, zooms, etc. Try it with manual "pan & zoom" and see if it works better.

I am not even getting that far. I've burned nothing to DVD yet. I am seeing the problem in my creation within EMC. When I hit preview there lies the problem.

It is advisable to create Slideshow using Videowave.

 

Anyway, is there an icon that says TV Safe Zone that you can click on in the Slideshow production? That should give you an idea of the overscan in your production.

I can't find where to make those settings changes. When I click on the slideshow assistant comes up and I can only work on that screen and there are no settings to modify other than add/remove photos or change from normal to widescreen.

So everything outside the TV safe zone will be missing? On all TVs or does it differ with tv type/size?
