I'm doing my first slide show - holiday pics to burn on to a DVD - hopefully to play on my TV. I want to add titles, music background, transitions etc. My question is, how many pics can I reasonably expect to get on one disc? I'm using the Roxio Videowave programme, but there doesn't seem to be any indicator to warn when I've reached the disc capacity. I'd appreciate any tips re procedure.
That covers just sticking the photos in as a data dvd or cd .The OP wants a slide show which would use alot more with all thew trimming s and menus.Wimbo Rough guide would be the Length of the show 2 hours max will be fine as its stills you might even squeeze some more in .Any half decent editor will make it fit to disc
I'd appreciate your recommendations! I'm using Roxio EMC7 at the moment - but it gives me problems. I thought to upgrade to Roxio Ultimate 2009, hoping that all the problems would be resolved - but I see from other posts that it generates as many problems as my old EMC7. I quite liked the look of the programme Jack (above) seems to like! - but don't really know which, if any, to choose! So, yes, I'd like your opinion - with thanks!
Yimbo there is nowt wrong with Jacks choice I'm only advising consider geting Magix or adobe premiere elemenys on the basis they will do all you need and have the benifit of being full blown video editors should you progress to that Magix has more bells and whistles that you wil ever need and a good selection of menus .Do try before you buy to see how you and your pc get on with them Both also have a good user dedicated forum . Roxio say bno more
