Issues With Text On Slideshows

Question

I'm having some problems with adding text to a slideshow in MyDVD Basic V9.

 

Basically I'm trying to add a simple title to the first slide and 'The End' to the last.

 

I can add the text no problem but I'm finding that its creating problems in playback. It seems to be treating the text as a completely separate slide in its own right. So the text and the slide dissolve out then the slide it was on appears again minus the text. This looks odd in particular at the final slide where the slide appears with 'The End' emblazened on it only for the slide it was on to appear again straight after. I've not added separate photos that would create this problem.

 

I've tried adding blank slides and the same happens - a coloured page appears with my text on it it disappears then a the coloured page reappears without the text then my show continues as normal.

 

Am I doing anything wrong - anyone have any ideas.

 

The only thing I can think to do is add the text directly to the photo itself rather than use the tool in MyDVD.

 

Cheers

I'm not sure how similar MyDVD Basic V9 is to V9 in EMC, but are you able to add text to the internal tracks of the slides? In EMC it works this way:

 

Insert Colored Panel > Add Text > Insert on Internal Track of Selected Panel.

 

This method keeps the text within its slide.

Does EMC 9 basic have a VideoWave type video editing program and are you using that? If not, you may be using a Slide Show Assistant type program. They are different. Which are you using and how are you adding the text to the image ?

 

What karri posted also works with an image. Just select the image, click on internal track and add the text there. If you are adding any text effects, make sure that the image duration is long enough to get all the text shown. Watch this flash video (for Video Wave)
