    "Use newer version of Video Builder" error message

    Mike, If all projects are re-saved in v9 and you call VideoBuilder from v9, the error message should not occur any more.

    Hi, Try to change the audio format for your DVD disc. In the Project Options of VideoBuilder (2nd page in your Word file) find Audio format option and change it from "MPEG Audio" to "LPCM".

    mp4 Quality

    Gogs, It is possible to put both an EXE and it's mp4 equivalent on Slideshow club for a comparison. Simply upload the mp4 to YouTube and add the embedding link in the description. That would give you a chance to compare and also for others to comment. It is possible that you NVidia setting is 16-240 and that o-255 would be better? DG

    mp4 Quality

    Hi Dave. Had a look at the nVidea Control Panel. The video settings were set to be controlled by the video player. Changed this to allow nVidea to control contrast and colour and it has made a huge difference. Improved greatly. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Gogs

    Publish to DVD-Video Disc

    Hi harbrimar I have burned many discs with Pictures to Exe presentations, some as long as 50 minutes. Always found that DVD-R was best. I have also noted, although I don't know if it is coincidence, That cheap DVD players always seemed to play them more consistently than the more expensive 'all singing and dancing' models. Gogs

    mp4 Quality

    Hi Dave thanks for getting back to me. Sorry for late reply, only managed to get back on computer just now, been away for most of the day. My PTE settings are Enable Colour Management Recommended, this is ticked. sRGB selected. When making mp4 settings are 1920x1080, High Quality, 60p, Pan and Scan Disabled. I think part of the problem was that Windows Film and TV had been set as default video player. Changed this to Windows Media Player and it improved quite a bit. Also tried VLC and that and Media Player were about the same. Much better than Windows Films and TV which was quite rubbish but still not nearly as good as the Exe file. I have nVidea so I will try the control panel and see if I can improve. My concern' however is submitting them for viewing on another computer and how they might look. This is why I prefer the Exe files as there seems to be some consistency. Gogs

    Does PTE need a name change

    The audience and presentation vary of course. A quality presentation properly done can certainly capture a delighted audience for more than a few minutes. For my applications which are also largely documentary, I break them into 3-8 min segments and lean toward 3-4 minutes. Now, back to EXE's. In the past, I created menu's to access the various shows since my audience (clients) are highly likely to view them many times over. Although not elegant, most people can figure out how to create playlists of MP4's and accomplish the same thing. [Note: I have no idea how the "2's" above got posted or how to remove them]

    Change Video File-length not adjusting

    Thanks. It kinda sounds like it has been brought up before. So it is not just me. Seems like we should have a choice for the 'change' to reset to the new clip's length, longer or shorter, of the replacement clip. Ok...thanks...Gary

    Change Video File-length not adjusting

    Hi Gary, I've experienced the same problem you described some weeks ago. My understanding is that we have two consider two different things : the slide duration and the object duration. The first time we put a video clip on the timeline the both durations have the same value but after if we modify the duration of the video clip object then the slide duration remains the same untill we decide to change it. I am not certain there is a good other solution ! There are pros and cons. We have just to know that... Best regards Picsel
  13. Greetings, I had put a video clip into the slides. But then I trimmed it down and just wanted to use 'Change Video File' to swap it. The trimmed video clip did swap but the playing length did not. The original length was about 1:48 and the new length is about :29. However the playing length stayed at 1:48 and did not reset to the new length of :29. I think I have done this before with not problems but now I can not see why the length is not automatically adjusting. The clip still plays for 1:48 with the portion after the :29 being just the last frame. Any ideas....? Yes, I understand I can just delete the longer clip and drag down the new shorter clip, but I'd like to know why the clip length does not reset to the new trimmed length. Should it? Gary

    Hi harbrimar, Try burning it to a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, rather than an RW disc, to see if that cures it. Regards wideangle

    Publish to DVD-Video Disc

    I'm trying to publish a sequence to a DVD disc as my friend does not have a computer and wishes to play it on his Panasonic DVD Player. The process of burning the sequence to a Panasonic DVD-RAM RW 4.7GB disc seems to progress fine but when we put it in the DVD player it is unable to read the disc. I have attached a screen print of the WnSoft Video Builder and project options screen. Can anyone please suggest what I might be doing wrong? VideoBuilder.docx

    Creation of a Slide Style help

    Thankyou Dave. Kept reading your answer and looking at the respective page in the Manual. The penny has finally dropped. Thankyou for your help. George

    Creation of a Slide Style help

    Your first image was dragged into the slide list and was automatically assigned Main Image Index 1. The rest were added in O&A and need to be Manually assigned Indexes 2-6. Any image not indexed is included in a style and causes the size of the Style to "Bloat". DG

    Does PTE need a name change

    Me to Barry! Mine is only 48 minutes and will be shown in a 300 seat auditorium projected onto a movie screen. I present shows on vanishing cultures and with PTE it allows me to place voice overs, sounds that I recorded, video, and of course my photographs. The usual questions are "What software did you use". I just viewed Hot in the City. and really enjoyed it. Excellent photography, timing, and transitions. Kieron
  19. Although I have used P2E for some years, only now am I trying to create my first Slide Style, but seemingly have overlooked something obvious. I am actually about half way through a family holiday a/v project. But following a sudden flash of inspiration I have re-visited one of the early slides in the sequence in which I used O&A and tried to make it a Slide Style. (This sequence has one background slide. Then, one by one, four slides appear and then move to each corner, followed by a fifth that takes up about 80% of the screen. In total six slides.) The creation process seemed to go ok, but … 1) To test this new Slide Style out, when I select six new slides and apply, apart from the background image, the next five slides that appear are those from the original sequence. 2) Now I think my error may be in the creation of the Style, and show two screenshots of that process.

    Does PTE need a name change

    I’m rather sceptical that there is any difference at all between PTE users and anyone else. So, I don’t see any advantage in a dedicated area to post. No offence intended but a 51 minute slide show fills me with dread. Lin. Good points, all makes sense.

    Does PTE need a name change

    As said before, " this kind of PTE projects may be suitable for PTE users, not for the public in general", so a "PTE private channel" only accessed by all PTE users.

    Does PTE need a name change

    A name change is something really only the developers should decide. It's always a risky proposition. Maybe it would be good and helpful for futures sales but it could also somewhat eradicate 20 years of success. The important thing is to get the word out about the benefits and value of PTE to those who haven't a clue about presentation slideshow software. A competitor's current problems may provide an opportunity for more to learn about PTE and what it can do. If the letters PTE can be kept, then the exact meaning of the last letter might be left to the imagination of the person using the product. It could simply be called PTE Mac 64 or PTE Windows 64? Just a thought... Lin

    Do you think that the discussion will come back to the original topic of name change?

    What would be the point of a private channel. Not seeing the reasons behind the idea.

    mp4 Quality

    1. What are your quality settings in PTE? 2. What video player are you using? Are there any settings there that need looking at? 3. If you have the nVidea Control Panel there are separate controls there for video. I think that each PC reacts differently to different players - as much as I try to like other players I find that, on my desktop pc, Windows Media Player works best for the MP4 files on my PC.
