Better than ILife 2009 and other SW on Mac?



Hello, I have Roxio 9 that I must have purchased and forgotten about when I then bought a Mac. For the past two weeks I have been unable to figure out how to make a slideshow or movie complete with theme, music, and different settings available in iLife ver 9.0


I am wonder if any of the the new Roxio 10 applications will help me in making these and being able to upload them somewhere so that my family members with PCs can see them. Now, I make the slideshow or the movie and I can see it, but not well on my own PC. Others say they cannot see them at all.


One problem might be the need for PCs to run Apples media program. If the others do not have it and don't know how to download, they cannot see the slideshow or movie.


So, honest opinion here please. Do you think I would have more success or just have the same old problems?

Few things.. If you intend to distribute slideshows in form of web distribution only regardless of Mac/PC platform, you could sign up to Roxio's PhotoShow service. This is one of those things where you utilize your source assets and use Roxio's web application to put together the show and distribute to family and friends. You can check more info here


With that said, I'm not sure how is the slideshow currently attempted for distribution using iLife 09? Are providing project files or are you rendering it to a .Mov file? You mention owning Roxio 9 - Please elaborate with proper name of the product sincce Roxio has Easy Media Creator 9 which is a 4 year old product as well as Creator 2009? Either version has ability of creating slideshows like iMovie and then authoring it to a viewable video files or a DVD Video format if you think your audience is going to use standard DVD player or Mac or PC to view the slideshows. If you intend to run the current Roxio 9 that you own on your current Mac, you will need one of Intel Macs and be able to run XP/Vista via Bootcamp.
