Help with burning slideshow on dvd!

Question

Hello,

Is there any way of creating and burning a slideshow to dvd and then adding and burning another slideshow to the same dvd later? Without menus, btw. The dvd must run as one continuous slideshow. I have Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burner, using windows XP with 2.6 ghz processor.

 

I can create numerous slideshows but must burn all at the same time. The problem with that is it takes 2 1/2 hours to burn a 45 min. dvd. and I would like to add 15 min. of photo slideshow the day of the presentation. As such, I will not have time to reburn the entire dvd the same day.

 

Thanks

Once you burn a slideshow to a DVD, the disc is finalized and you can't add any more to the DVD.

Is there anyway of speeding the burn process up without losing quality? I have 8 megapizels images which will be shown as a slideshow presentation on a large screen tv. I have been burning it at 16:9, HQ, and the slower 1:2 x burn speed I think.

Actual Burn is between your burner and the media you feed it… A 1 hour long project takes 1 hour at 1X, 1/2 hour at 2X, 15 min @ 4, etc.

 

Rendering is what takes time and only the speed of your cpu combined with a high end video card can change that.

Thanks Jim,

That makes sense. Given that, I have one last question. Will I lose much quality burning at 2.4x versus 4.0x?

 

I am still creating in HQ, using high quality digital pictures. I don't think it would show on a smaller tv but need to maintain excellent quality for a large screen.

Burn speed has no effect on quality, the quality has already been dtermined by the time you do the burn :rolleyes:

You will lose quality when you create the DVD, unless you create BD discs.
