Question

Can anyone help. I have Roxio Creator 2012 and love the photoshow bit of it and can manage it all but when I come to burn to dvd and playback on dvd player the photos are no longer as sharp as they were. It is not the dvd player because I have played dvd's which I have done with another software product and they are fine. I am using windows 7

I have this PhotoShow installed and it replaces the one from C2012 suit, http://www.photoshow.com/home?source=photoshow_desktop_start_menu_link

 

I can't remember what options your seeing when you want to burn your show to a DVD disc.

 

Could you tell me what quality options you show, I'm not talking about burn speeds?

Many thanks for trying to help me. Don't know if I fully understand the question but on Photoshow when the message asks if you want to burn to disc it shows 'DVD = MATCHITA DVD - RAM UJ880AS 1.20' and below that WRITE SPEED - SLOW = Most reliable. MED = Reliable and FAST = Less reliable. Hope this is clear.

Remember that you are making a standard definition movie - 720 by 480. There is no way that the images will be high definition - 1920 by 1080 like something you see on your monitor.

 

If you want a high definition video you must use Edit Video -Advanced aka Video Wave and make either an AVCHD disc (about 40 minutes) or a blu ray disc. You would need a blu ray player for both and a burner and special discs for the blu ray.

I used to use Pinnacle Studio on the same computer and the same DVD player and the pictures are really sharp. I am a bit of an amutuer so not very good at explaining things, all I know is that I am disappointed in the Roxio reproduction campared to Pinnacle. I have a feeling I may revert back to Pinnacle.

The photo quality is excellent. If I run the photoshow through computer it is great. I have just used the medium speed for butning and I am using Sony DVD -R

The Burn Speed has absolutely nothing to do with it!!!

 

It is the Quality you select... As Steve pointed out, 720 X 480 is a good as can be done on a DVD!

 

AND it can be made to a much lessor quality!

 

I have never burned one from PhotoShow so I have no idea what was offered.

 

But NO Program can ever exceed 720 X 480 quality for a DVD Movie!

Thank you to everyone who has tried to help me but some of the info you all passed on to me was a bit over my head. I am 66 and struggle a bit with the lingo. Anyway I have solved the problem myself by exporting the photoshow to WMV file and then burning the disc through Windows DVD maker. Results are prefect, I just hope I will be able to do that when I do movies becasue they as well weren't very good quality. There may have been an easier way but I got there in then end.

Try another way of doing it. Use Edit Video-Advanced (Video Wave) to make the project. It will give you more freedom and flexibility Your music, your choice of transitions, your choice of a lot of things. . Watch a couple of these karri made videos on how to use Video Wave. You can make several projects and then burn the projects (up to about an hour of video) on a DVD using Create DVD..

 

Here is a link to karri's Video Tips Home page for other information.

 

Never use age as an excuse ! I'm older than you and several of the other posters are just as old or older. Continuous learning keeps you young ! :P

Yes. Video Wave with Create DVD is the best way of putting both or either video or slide show projects onto a DVD. Always select best quality when you do go to burn, use good quality blanks (JVC Taiyo Yuden. Verbatim or Sony ) are supposed to be the best. Never try to put more than one hour of video/slide show time on a single layer DVD. When you burn, burn to an ISO file or Folder set. Preview it using something like the free VLC player and if it looks good, burn it to a disc using the application on the Home page.

 

Are you ready for high definition? Do you have a blu ray player that will play AVCHD discs (check your manual) and a high definition TV? You can put about 40 minutes of high definition video (or slide show) on a standard DVD using a standard burner. No need to buy a blu ray burner and blu ray discs if that will do you for now. Those will have the 1920 by 1080 resolution that you see on blu rays discs without the cost. Pretty close to what you see on your computer.

 

Let us know if you need more help.
