Ulead DVD PictureShow 2 is quite good and easy to use. There is a trial version available from the Ulead web site. Other than that never used anything else.

i have been messing with ulead,and all seems great,quick and easy to setup..i have added pictures,narration and background music and i am creating it on a svcd

the thing is, it takes ages to copy to cd, its still in the process 1/4 steps and is still on the first step, its been over 30 minutes already,its still working but very slow

just wondering if this is normal or how quick do yuo copy to cd?

Give pro show a try. You can download a trial version but I ended up buying the "gold version".
Ihave found it very versatile and created some very nice slide shows and put them on CD. You can do tyhis in various formats including VCD, SVCD and XSVCD, so you'll be OK to play on DVD player (as I do)click here

ok cheers

just an update on ulead!

it eventually finished, but would play the sound on my dvd player, it played the slide show but without the narration(wav) or background sound(mp3)

but it played fine through my computer, is this because my dvd player maynot support mp3 or wav..

any ideas anyone, as i hope i dont have the same problem with any other programs i try!

forget my last comment about the sound not playing on dvd player, i never had the bloody hifi on, as that needs to be on to have the sound

lmao, i forgot alright! havn't used it in a while

one problem solved but would like some feedback to why it takes so long to copy to cd (ulead)

i do like ulead but have downloaded the showpro and going to give that a whirl!

but prefer the layout of ulead..but will not put up with it taking 40 minutes or so to copy to cd..
