Slideshow Problems


Obbligato

Question

I made a slideshow and then made it into a movie to play on my DVD. The problem occurs when I got to play the video. All of my pictures are fuzzy. What can I do to make clear when they are played in move form? I scanned all of my photos in to do this.

Read about video; unless you are doing blu-ray, the resolution is 720 by 480. No video is going to be as clear as the originals. When you say fuzzy, how fuzzy are they? How did you make the DVD? How long is the slide show? Did you burn to best quality as an ISO file and then copy that to a disc or did you use fit to disc and burn directly. How does it look when you play it on your computer (not preview). Perhaps the DVD player needs to be cleaned.

 

There are a lot more possibilities but you'll have to give us some details.

 

 

If you want to just have the images play on a DVD player, you can make a jpeg disc IF your player will play them. Read your manual.

I'm also having this problem of fuzzy pictures in a slideshow shown on the tv or previewed on the computer, when the same pictures (JPEG) are sharp & clear by themselves on the computer. The slideshow was produced in VideoWave on a DVD+R DL (double layer) 1 & 1/2 hrs, fit-to-disc, HQ. These were scanned from color slides using 1200 dpi, but they look very good on the computer.

 

I then decided to just copy the files & their folders to a regular DVD+R through Windows Explorer (Which lists my disc drive as Roxio drive for some reason) but no DVD player will recognize the disc.

Look at your DVD player's manual. It may well be able to play a jpeg picture disc or from a USB drive. Some TVs also have that ability; mine will make a menu and create a slide show. No audio though. Those picture discs will be clear.

 

You can make a jpeg picture disc using Creator Classic. Look at the DVD player's manual to determine the file system type that will play. (ISO 9660 ?)

 

Do you have an upconverting DVD player?

 

How bad are the pictures? It is impossible to give you much more information without seeing an image. Post a screen shot of the image on an on-line image sharing site and post the link here.

 

The original poster never came back and gave us any more information so we don't know if you have the same problem/solution.
