I'm sorry if this has been already covered, but I'm pretty new here. I want to put wedding pictures onto a dvd for viewing as a video/slide show on TV. I have a couple of programs but the screens that I been getting flicker and the quality doesn,t seem that good. Any help appreciated.

As most people point out - unless you want the special effects you can generate on a computer - using a domestic DVD recorder is faster an more trouble free.

However, as you are getting as far as you are, you must have a capture card, cable and software already.

I found that software can make a difference. Ulead Visual Studio is good and you can get a free download 30 day trial.

Next you should make sure that you have the correct settings. (I think UK is PAL-G but check this out - I am in Germany).

Finally make sure your cable is good.

As you will have found out by now - Video editing on a PC takes a lot of resource.

After re-reading your post I realise you did not say you are inputting from an analog source.

Far better quality can be acheived by connecting the DV output of the digicam to a firewire port on the PC (no capture card).

Same points about the software. It is a matter of judgement what is high quality but I have succeeded in producing results that the recipients were more than happy with.

Try the fully functioning trial of ProShow gold. click here

As well as a great many transitions, you can also pan, zoom and rotate individual slides. Sound can also be attached to individual slides + background music/sounds to the slideshow.

I have tried most slideshow programs, this IMO is the best.

Not sure what happened there, but it took almost 15 minutes to upload + three error pages.
