A pal of mine is a DJ and wants to make a DVD. Whenever he does a function he wants to play a DVD that plays a song i.e Happy Birthday and has Happy Birthday etc on the screen visually for when they walk in. Also with weddings etc...... How do I do this and where would I get the software. It has to look a lot more professional than just 'clip art'.
If all you need is a simple 'Happy Birthday' picture with a 'Happy Birthday' backing track then Nero will do fine and look as professional as you decide to make it.
You can simply use the slide show option, i.e. One picture/photo in the slideshow, insert your happy b'day track, put a tick in the box for the picture to stay on the screen for as long as the song lasts and your done. You could also use Nero to fade your picture in and out at the beginning and end in accordance with an equally faded backing track.
