Slideshow Duration Question

Question

I have Roxio Creator 2012 pro and I am trying to create a slide show. The problem I'm having is that I want no timed transition between photos. That is I only want to go to the next slide when I click on the "next" button on the DVD player. I could do this on an older version (creator 7.5) but can't figure out how to do it with this version. Any ideas?

Thankyou

In Step 2, are you using DVD Projector as the Transition Style???

Overall... it is best to use VideoWave to produce your slideshows!

 

It has far more flexibility and control but there is one exception... That 'DVD Projector' transition is ONLY available when burned through the Roxio Slideshow Assisatant :huh:

One other thing to keep in mind is that you are limited to 99 photos [or 'slides] as i recall, per slideshow. This is because in order to make it work with the 'next' button, each [hoto/slide is actually a chapter and the DVD standard only allows 99 chapters per title [slideshow in this case].

Thanks for your repsonce, but it doesn't solve my problem. I tried with DVD Projector but it still has a 2 second minimum transition. I want no transition but only to move to the next slide when I push the "next" button on the DVD player. . I also checked out VideoWave but with no advantage. Also with the manual mooving to the next slide, I can put on many more than 99 slides. Maybe I'll have to reinstall the older version of Creator

Thankyou

sippy,

 

Perhaps there is some confusion. In DVD Slide show, there are no transitions used. The slide show jumps from one image to the next. If you are looking at the preview, and you have it set to 2 seconds.That is the image duration. it will look like the image changes to the next one. Try it again with a max image duration -- 20 secdonds. When you burn the slide to a DVD using Create DVD, you will be able to change the slide with your remote control for your TV. The 20 seconds should give you pleanty of time to find the right button on the remote. Try it on a DVD RW disc. There is a need to change the slide show image if you are using a DVD player and TV or projector so that the image doesn't get burned in (old but sometimes still a problem with certain TV).

 

Perhaps if you tell us what you are trying to achieve with this slide show and how you want to use it, we can suggest other options.

Thanks sknis, what I'm trying to do is to be able to show pictures (slides) at various lengths of time. If we want to talk about a slide I may want the picture to stay on the screen for longer than 20 seconds, sometimes maybe up to 60 sec. or more. Or quickly skip through the slides. I've been able to do this in the past with the older version of creator.

Thankyou

The other problem that I can see is that it's been sugested that with the auto transition, you can only have 99 slides (as sugested by Larry. Is this so as I want to have about 300 - 400 slides. Have done this in the past.

Thanks

 

So put multiple slide shows on one disc!

 

You may be mis-remembering.

Ok, my question is, did you go beyond step 2 at all? On the screenshot that Jim posted, it even states that there will be no transitions, etc.

 

I did a quick test to see what it actually will do. By the way, ignore what the preview does in the Slideshow assistant, as that doesn't represent what it will do in the end.

 

Picked 111 'photos'

Left the duration at the 5 sec setting

On step 3, selected the "Burn to disc..." option which opened MyDVD

From there you can change the title, background, etc

I then used the preview [small arrow in bottom right to the left of the red burn button] to see what it would do.

 

Each 'slide' or picture, sat on the screen until I clicked on the next button. I let it sit there for 10 minutes and it didn't change. wouldn't change until I clicked the next button. It also advanced through all 111 of them, so maybe the 99 limit I was thinking of doesn't apply.

 

I suggest you try the same type of testing and burn it to an erasable RW disc [for testing] and see what happens. It looks to me like it'll do what you want if you follow through to the end of the process.
