Photos are not clear

Question

I'm creating a slideshow with music and then burning to dvd. My photos are very clear when I view them thru Windows Media Player. However, when I load them into Creator 2010 to create a slide show the photos are quite blurry. Both when viewed via the software and when burned to dvd and then viewed thru Windows Media.

Can anyone help me?

I have moved your post to the correct forum since you state you are using Creator 2010. As far as I know Videowave Movie Creator (where had posted) is a very old program and no longer supported.

 

What program from C2010 are you using to create your slideshow. Hopefully its Videowave to assemble the show and then myDVD to burn.

 

THe images are reduced in quality when you create a slideshow to make them DVD compliant but the quality is generally not that bad. What quality setting are you using when burning to DVD? HQ will give you the best.

I am having the same problem. My photos start out as high resolution. When creating the DVD...and even on-screen in VideoWave...everything is blurry. A friend of mine has a MAC with Viceo Creator/DVD Burning software and the quality is amazing. I thought Roxio would do the same and it's very frustrating and disappointing. Any advice?

Since you have not given any info on what your friend has really done, there is no point on commenting on that. All high resolution photos have to be reduced to 720x480 to make them DVD compliant. This is true for every software whether Mac or Windows or whatever. Where are you/they viewing these images?

I am viewing the slideshow on pc thru Windows Media. The frustrating thing is if I simply view my photos in Windows media from my Pictures folder they look fantastic and very clear. However, when I use the creator 2010 software to create the slide show and add music the photos are very unclear. It makes no sense to me. I am using videowave to do the editing. Every photo I import is at the highest resolution possible.

Read again about the conversion necessary to make a Slide Show MOVIE, The resolution is 720 by 480 unless you are doing AVCHD or Blu-ray. When you view the images on your computer, the resolution is changed to what you have set on your monitor *usually equivalent" to High Definition. My monitor is set to 1580 by 1050. About twice the resolution of the video movie that you are making. Just for fun, change your screen resolution to as close to 720 by 480 as you can and look at an image. I bet you won't have to even look at an image because the screen will be that bad.

 

Consider getting a Blu-ray player that will play AVCHD discs and make your slide show to AVCHD quality. They will look good! AVCHD is high definition movie burned to a standard DVD using your current burner. Blu-ray players are coming down in price; the ones with AVCHD capability may be a little more expensive but what is cost when you want the best resolution at the least cost.

 

Also if you just want to look at the images on a DVD, you can burn a picture disc and navigate through the images with your remote. Look at your current DVD player's owners manual to see if it will play picture discs and in what format they must be burned.

 

The images in Video Wave are also at a lesser quality in able to make editing easier and time responsive.

Skins,

 

Thank you for the information. I'm making this project for a friend who will be using their computer for viewing. So a Blue Ray, while I might get one for myself, will not help in this situation.

 

I did notice that the quality is better prior to sending to mydvd. So I was thinking about just saving the file to my hard drive from videowave and then just copy from there, rather then burn from mydvd. Something happens in the transition to mydvd, the clarity really stinks.

 

Is it better to change the size of the photos prior to importing into Videowave? I use Photoshop for pre processing so I can make the size pretty much what ever I want it to be. Also, I've saved the photos as jpeg at the maximum resolution possible.

No, resizing the files before you work on the project will not help. Since the person will only be looking at the images on the computer, do you really need a slide show? Why don't you just copy the files to a disc and use Windows to watch the images.

 

If you really want a slide show with music and transitions, then just export your project to, for example a HDV file (icon above the preview window), and copy the file to a data disc. Tell your friend to download and run VLC player on the file. It will play at a better resolution than what you have with an encoded movie file. Of course, that DVD will not play in a standard DVD player.

 

Try it, let us know if that works for you.
