How do you put different text on each picture in a slideshow? When I try it places it on every one!

Thank you!

 

Add the text to the internal tracks of a photo, that way the text will apply only to that picture and will "move" with the picture if you ever relocate the photo.

Add the text to the internal track of the picture on which you want it to show. That way, it won't show up on other pictures.

 

On Storyline, click on the photo. Then, click on the Internal Tracks button, add text in the Preview window above. When you are done, click on the Internal Tracks button, again. Repeat as necessary.

Can I do the same thing on a color frame? I tried that and went to the internal tracks, and it showed up on all.

It works for me. Are you talking about a color panel that you inserted into your production? You should have no problem adding text to that panel, only.

 

If you click on one picture or panel, then click on the Internal Tracks button, all panels should be greyed out, except the one that you are working on. If that doesn't happen, something is not right.

I had tried it that way, and it would not work, it would put it on every panel, so I got tired of trying and deleted the panel, I closed out of the production without saving changes. When I went back in after posting my question, tried it again, it worked! The same thing happend when I tried to set the duration for the transitions and applyto all, I had already set Random Theme for them, and it wouldn't work. I ended up deleting the theme and putting it back on there, then setting the duration, and it worked! Wonder if it is a Vista thing? I have XP on my desktop never had really tried much on there because of the limited RAM.

 

Anyway, now I am at a new cross roads... as this is my first production, may be here allot, I set it to wide screen and now I am thinking that I may want to change that. Is that possible? Is so how do I change it from wide view or wide screen...whatever it is called?

If you are in Videowave and want text on a single photo or slide, click on the picture you want to add the text to and then click on "Add Text Effect" from the menu above on the left and then make sure on the next screen you have the the right button circle picked. From there you should get only that one picture with a box to add text to that you can insert your text.

If the pictures were not widescreen, then you want 4:3 for your production. It is possible to change it back, in VideoWave. Click on File/New Production, then pick 4:3. I am not sure if you bring your production in, after that, it will revert to4:3.

I tried to go to new production, then open producition...the first time it accepted the 4:3, then windows popped on with the error message that "VideoWave stopped working, looking for solution"...then it shut down withour saving. I went back and did it again, and it did not accept the change, it stayed widescreen! Any suggestions?

I haven't tried it, so I didn't know if it would work. Maybe someone else has a solution to that problem, without having to rebuild your production.

 

You could try opening MyDVD, and bring that production in, then click on File, Project Settings, and change it to 4:3. That should change it.

Crossing fingers, I think it accepted it. :) Thank you for your help! I think I am having Vista issues with EMC9! Here and there I get the message that it stopped working. I just have to save real often, like after every change, so if it shuts down I am not SOL. And I have to try and try again to get things to work. I have gone to the site from the topic that is pinned, I have a Dell, I am so new to all this that I have no clue how it is actually supposed to work. Can I take the production and folder with the pictures to my desktop and try with it? Just put the files in the same path as it is on this one? I do not have as much RAM on there but I can shut down all other programs and it should do fine. Have the DVD burner on here, that is why I use this one.

 

I am jsut trying to make my first DVD that can be played on any home DVD player. I am abouat to get frustrated because with every step, seems I am getting stumped! I have the step by step how tos that Steve posted printed out, if I can just get finished with this production, then add some movie clips to another production and figure out the menu thing in MyDVD...lol....oh my ...with that I will sign off for the night! Any suggestions on anything is greatly needed! Thank you!

You can't move the files, or you will have to have VideoWave reassociate the location. I don't think it will make a difference with any problems you may be having, so I would not move the files.

 

Just keep plugging away at it.
