  1. Yesterday
  2. Igor. Thanks for the explanation. H.264 good choice for me with 5-6 year old computer. Thanks again.
  3. Ron, Please send me this project again (missing files). See the personal message.
  4. Peter, I'm glad that the new version works fine. We're still thinking about H.265 (HEVC) support. Current disadvantages of H.265: 1. Encoding takes in 3x time longer than H.264. 2. Old computers and even not so old PCs can't play smoothly H.265. It requires GPU hardware acceleration for video decoding. For example, NVIDIA Geforce 1050 or newer.
  5. Igor. Why did you choose H.264 rather than H.265? H.265 apparently offers better compression among other things and is the more modern Codec for MP4. Peter.
  6. File sent! It's a short sample, but enough to see what's going on. I did encode it with hardware acceleration off. My Samsung will try to play it, but it stutters throughout the playback. I did not send you the mp4, but I think you can see the show is very rapid paced. Enjoy the photos! Ron
  7. Dear Igor. The pte beta version you downloaded works well. I very much appreciate your time and knowledge in sorting out this problem in such a timely manner. I am very grateful. Regards. Peter.
  8. Ron, Thanks for the details. I see on 1st screenshot that bitrate was set to high (109 mbit). It explains why your TV didn't want to play it. Probably we need to limit top level of a bitrate to fit for hardware limitations of Ulta HD TVs. But usually bitrate is much lower, I need to understand why the encoder chosen so high bitrate value. It may depends on high dynamic scenes in your projects (especially if it contains video clips). Please send me your project, all files in a ZIP, in a private message. Use WeTransfer.com or send.firefox.com services Can you also check other projects? About 4-10 minutes of duration without video clips.
  9. Igor, I hope I'm not wasting your time, but I've attached three images of file details to compare bitrate for your convenience.
  10. Igor, Your project plays flawlessly on my Samsung. I had already tried my project with no hardware encoding with no success. I'm starting to think that my show is much "busier" due to the wildlife and landscape content, therefore running up the bitrate. It is also a very fast paced show. Ron
  11. I did check version number before testing. I will download your project and test! Ron
  12. Ron, Thanks for testing. Please make sure that you installed version 10.0.6 in About window. Check my project and try to encode your 4K video without Hardware acceleration: https://send.firefox.com/download/26fbe6f303554279/#x0Noc-dHOQ1q5JEkVLF95Q I used "HD and 4K video" option, 3840 x 2160, High quality, 60p.
  13. Thanks, Igor! I made a short test using High Quality, 60P, with hardware encoding. My Samsung does not like it. Second test: High Quality, 60P, no hardware encoding. Better, but still not usable. Third test: High Quality, 30P, with hardware encoding. Almost usable, but not quite there. Let me know if you have any parameters you would like for me to try. Ron
  14. Ok, thanks for the confirmation. I would be really happy to beta test your mac version
  15. Mark, Thanks for this info. We can't do anything for Crossover emulation. Only in native Mac version we can use fonts correctly.
  16. Hi, We greatly improved video output in a new version 10.0.6 Beta. I ask your help to check if everything works correctly: Download Beta version 10.0.6: https://files.wnsoft.com/test/pteavstudio-setup.exe Improved compatibility of created 4K video with Ultra HD TVs. Improved smoothness of created 1080p video on some old TVs (2011 or earlier). Improved video encoding in Custom preset with “Bitrate” mode. The final bitrate more closely matches the one set by the user. Improved visual quality. Note, that a file size of a created MP4 video without Hardware acceleration option is now larger on 10-15% than in previous versions of PTE 10 using "Quality" mode, but still less than videos created in PTE 9. It means better visual quality in version 10.0.6. You can reduce file size adjusting Quality parameter in Custom preset. If everything is OK, we'll publish a version 10.0.6 officially.
  17. Ron, Try a new version 10.0.6 Beta: https://files.wnsoft.com/test/pteavstudio-setup.exe
  18. Peter, Thanks for the confirmation! Please try a new version 10.0.6 Beta: https://files.wnsoft.com/test/pteavstudio-setup.exe If everything is OK, I'll publish it officially.
  19. Igor. Again sorry for the delay in responding. I am very pleased to report that both the 4k files you emailed work fine on the Sony A9G TV. Will these formats be incorporated into 10 in the near future? Regards Peter.
  20. Hi Yaryman, Give me a few minutes and I'll make you a quick tutorial video to show you exactly how to do what you are doing in the vast majority of your show. As you mentioned, it's mostly very slow zooms in and zooms out with sometimes text and sometimes no text. It's very easy to do and you can either use styles or not. You'll see how to keep the text from zooming with the image or, if you want, how to make it zoom with the image. The advantage of using a style is that you can pre-set things like smooth, slow down, etc., for the image without having to do it for each image. The disadvantage of using a style is that when you apply it "after" adding text, you will lose the text. On the other hand, you can easily go to a slide which has text, go to Objects and Animations and copy the text, apply the style which will add the desired zoom in, zoom out, etc., then simply paste the text you have copied back after the style has been applied. I'll also show you how that's done. I think using styles would make perfect sense because you simply apply the style THEN add the text rather than the other way around. I'll show you and put the tutorial video under this text in a short while... Best regards, Lin Sorry, my internet was down for a while - here's the video:
  21. Lin, Thank you again for your time and patience. I don't want a style & themes template because as discussed, one change there wipes out the objects and animation text. It seemed doing zooms/fades in objects & animation allowed me make change that were layer specific like in the photo I just posted. Is it possible to do zooms/fades of the slide layer in objects & animation? Here's how my slide shows get made. Go to Europe. Shoot 6,000 to 8,000 images. Shot 100 time lapses. Shoot 100 lousy videos. Come home. Select RAW files in Photo Mechanic to work on. Work on those files in Lightroom, Luminar 4, and finally size and crop them in Photoshop to 4800 x 2700. Then I start to build the slide show. The slide show starts with how ever many slides I've worked over. It's never all of them, so the show continues to get bigger & bigger. As I build the show, I add text to photos that need it, or where I can google search information about what the photo is. It's a continual process. Build time 20 time lapses, then use about 3 in show. Look at 100 lousy videos, and then use 20 seconds total in the show. I don't know if a slide will be zoomed/faded at any point during the building process. I may build 10 slides one way, and then change them later. Then after days, or weeks of work I end up with this.
  22. Yes, it's a simple thing to create a style which performs a fade/zoom, but you need to say whether you want to start with a small image and zoom-in or start with a large image and zoom out. A starting keyframe is put in every image by default so all you need to do to make a "template" (which is a style in this sense) is to take a single image of the aspect ratio and orientation you want to use for your style. Set the default display time and amount of zoom (in or out). Decide if you want a border or another image or even the same image as a blurred background, etc., Set an ending keyframe, do your zoom and set the attributes such as smooth, slow down, etc., whether you want a border or not and if so the color and size. Once you have the individual slide exactly as you want to see all your slides, then go to the slide view and click on Styles and Themes, choose "Style" "Tool" "Create Style." When your style is created you can apply it to any or all images by simply selecting each or all in the slide list then applying. Do NOT add text unless you know you want text in every slide. You can add the text after the style is applied. If you create a single slide exactly the way you want all to appear then save the project as "File" "Create Backup In Zip" and post this zipped archive with a link, I'll be glad to make a quick style(s) for you. It's a very simple thing to do once you understand how it works. Best regards, Lin
  23. It looks like I could achieve the desired zoom/fade out effect using key frames in Objects & Animation? Is there a way to create a template that has key frames already set up at the beginning and end of each slide in O&A so that all the would be required is to change settings? Pretty much every slide I include in show has a fade/zoom, then a few have an extra effect. This photo shows what I'm use to. ( yes, it's software from a different company ) It looks like O&A page. I can change the size of image/text/video all without effecting the other settings.

  25. Last week
  26. I should have mentioned that I tried different cables too and like you, found that didn’t help.
  27. If you want to use a style AND have text on multiple images, you can apply the style, then add your text and make a new style from the resulting slide and apply that to all other slides. You can, when you add the text, right click and select TEXT COMMENT. When you apply your Style you will be prompted to insert the text before pressing OK. It is still editable afterwards. DG P.S. Igor is aware of the shortcomings of Styles in this area and has promised, in a future version, that the subject of ADDITIVE STYLES will be addressed.
