    MP4 juddering

    Hmm, strange. It should work for AVI 1920 x 1080, 30p. I recommend to consider creating of a MP4 video as a final movie for your project. If a project contains many high quality video clips, we recommend to create a MP4 video instead of EXE format. P.S. Future version 10.0 will work faster and better for video clips in EXE shows.

    The decline of video optical discs

    Thanks, Tom, I thought to add add Blu Ray output in future versions. But it seems that this option becoming not so actual? Also I didn't receive any requests from users for Blu-Ray output.

    MP4 juddering

    What is the pixel size (width/height) of a created AVI video and FPS?

    MP4 juddering

    Try "AVI video" option in the Publish menu of PicturesToExe, and then insert created AVI video into another project,

    MP4 juddering

    Hi, Do I understand rightly, that you create a MP4 video in PicturesToExe and then insert it as a video clip into a nother PicturesToExe's project and play it as an EXE file?

    Maximum Number of Images

    Up to 300-500 slides are OK. More than 700 slides may cause noticable delays in work with a project. In theory you can add around 10 000 images. Alternatively you can split your project into several parts.

    H265 Codec from GoPro Hero7

    Hi, Future version 10.0 will support MP4 video with H.265 codec (HEVC) and playback with fast hardware acceleration (on new video cards). For version 9.0 I recommend to use HandBrake - a free open source video converter: https://handbrake.fr/ Personally I also use this great software program. If you plan to create a final EXE show: In HandBrake: in Output Settings > Video tab > Video Codec > change "H.264" option to "MPEG-4". You can keep other options by default. It will create video optimized for PicturesToExe 9.

    Monitor refresh rate and PTE

    Tom, I use 3 Dell monitors: U2417H, P2317H, and old P2314H. Also I plan to try a NEC monitor.

    Jose, Thanks, I need more time to explore the question with High@L4.1 and 60p.

    Monitor refresh rate and PTE

    Tom, When you purchase any monitor make sure that it contains a feature "Flicker free". It's important. I hope that open formats AV1 and AVIF will become popular. We plan to support both formats in future.

    PTE 9.0.21 PUBLISH SHOW (HD MP4)

    Jose, I discovered that my old media player (2008 year) connected to a TV can play only H.264 video up to Profile 4.1. So it plays fine 1920 x 1080 30p. 60p video created with a wrong profile 4.1 plays very jerky (not acceptable). And 60p video with a correct profile 4.2 cannot play at all. It seems that old media players and TV are limited by 30p video only, and some TVs plays 60p with a wrong profile 4.1, and new models (2010-2012 or later) play fine 60p 1080 videos. I will explore more this subject.

    PTE 9.0.21 PUBLISH SHOW (HD MP4)

    Jose, I'm not sure that it's a good solution. PTE should create a MP4 video files according H.264 specifications. I checked 60p video (High@L4.2) from PTE 9.0.21 on my FullHD LG TV (5.5 years old) and it plays fine all files. Same for Android TV media player. I will check pmy another old media player today later or tomorrow. To set profile High@4.1: Open the following file in Notepad (you need Administrator's rights): C:\Program Files (x86)\WnSoft PicturesToExe\9.0\Main\encoder-hd.ini For CmdLine parameter add -level 41 : CmdLine=-me_method umh -level 41 -pix_fmt yuv420p Please don't forget that this parameter is not compatible with 4K video output.

    Monitor refresh rate and PTE

    It would be difficult to find a monitor with 10 bit HDR. And I think it's useless for now.
  19. Igor Kokarev

    Monitor refresh rate and PTE

    Yes, and PTE supports 4K rendering.

    Monitor refresh rate and PTE

    Hi Tom, All versions of PTE always use current refresh rate of your monitor. In the preview and in EXE shows. If you have a special monitor with 120 Hz and Windows was configured to use 120 Hz, PTE will render animations at 120 frames per second. Don't forget about a good video card to be able render fast these 120 frames per second.

    PTE 9.0.21 PUBLISH SHOW (HD MP4)

    Jose, According H.264 specifications, MP4 video at 1920 x 1080 50p or 60p should use a profile High@L4.2 And 30p video 1920 x 1080 can use High@L4.0: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Levels By a mistake PTE 9 up to version 9.0.16 used firmly High@L4.1 - that is redundantly for 1920 x 1080, 24/25/30p (or lower), and incorrectly low profile for 1920 x 1080 50/60p, 4K video. Since PTE 9.0.17 we fixed this problem, and now H.264 profile is set automatically, optimally for every particular case. You can try old version of PTE 9.0.16 (fixed to High@L4.1): https://files.wnsoft.com/test/picturestoexe-setup-9016.exe Also I can advice you how to edit manually the configuration file in the latest PTE 9, if necessary. However, please note that High@L4.1 is NOT correct for 1920x1080 60p and it can be used as an exception for a particular hardware player.

    Photoshop menus-too tiny (SOLVED)

    Gary, Glad that you resolved this issue! It's interesting that many software products still don't support HighDPI mode. For example, Proshow Producer 9 window looks very blurry even at 125% of screen scale. HighDPI is not supported.

    PTE Stopped [SOLVED]

    I'm glad that you resolved this problem. It seems that some settings of PTE were damaged or were wrong. Reinstallation of PTE has cured the configuration file.
