  1. Lovely show and very relaxing to watch! You have a such a great eye for composition. Loved the various reflections, especially the one with ice at the edges in the late afternoon light. Thank you again for sharing!
  2. What a lovely collection of images! I was really moved by the exquisite lightening in some of them. And of course, the scenery is spectacular. You have put it all together with your usual attention to the details, fades and movement of the images. Would love to hear a bit more about the actual locations. I am never disappointed when I download your shows and they are always "Keepers". Hope you and yours are doing well.
  3. Nicely done! I really liked the opening you have created. These are some of my favorite places as well. Living in the US Southwest provides us so many photographic opportunities.
  4. Thanks to Igor and team for resolving all the issues we discovered along the way! Many other photo processing / presentation software companies tend to release half-baked software and then let the general public users find any problems which may or may not get fixed in due course. It is so refresing to have Igor and his team work through 36 Betas and 4 release candidates to get everything working just right before an actual software release. I am sure I speak for those of us forum members who have gone through this iteration process in saying "Congratulations on a job well done -- and thanks for listening to us!
  5. Gary, Thanks for the Route Generator link. I too like to add maps to my videos and have created some with PowerDirector or in PTE with Photoshop layers and masks -- a bit of a pain. I always put a map on the back of the photobooks I create. FYI, there is another app that you might find interesting: Geo Photo for creating maps if your camera has GPS or you take snaps with a phone to store locations. Mary
  6. Nicely done, Gary! And it appears that your efforts with this show in Beta 10 have been instrumental in helping Igor and his team in solving quite a few issues with this new version. We are adventuresome too, but some of those roads would have put my heart in my mouth. Loved the hairy cows and I especially liked the steam train segment. Your map was wonderfully done. Mind sharing exactly how you did it? Looks like another trip of a lifetime for you two (and it seems like you've got quite a few under your belt now). I am envious! Thanks so much for sharing!
  7. Hi Igor, SUCCESS! In PreBeta 33 it appears that all of the issues I had previously encountered have been resolved. Drag and drop is very smooth, no blinking triangles either in scrolling the slide window left and right or in scrolling in the file window. Also no blinking triangles when viewing a slide in O&A to which I had applied the style attached at the top of this thread. I have even switched between several different large folders in the same project, including one with 3,378 files, without any difficulties. You folks have done a wonderful job in resolving these issues. Thanks! Mary
  8. In Beta 32 I do not experience any of the problems discussed above NO MATTER WHAT SIZE THE FOLDER -- if I switch to table view. This includes, viewing in the O&A window or scrolling back and forth in the slides window. As soon as I switch to thumbnail view the flashing rectangles begin again. I did not experience any problems, even in thumbnail view with the style or the flashing rectangles in a folder of 133 items which did include some canon raw files. I guess the problem lies somewhere in the creation of thumbnails for folders with lots of files.
  9. Style is attached to 3rd post at the top of this thread. Called Collage 4F. Same response as video and screenshots of task manager.
  10. Question 1 - sorry I only have the 2 laptops i tested, no desktop. Question 2 - I believe I did test with only jpegs and the answer was yes, but i will confirm tonight when i get home. I have one other older laptop running win 8.1 64 bits but can't remember what graphics. Will check that too. Please also try the o&a window with the style i attached above.
  11. I have checked on a different Windows 10 laptop with only 8GB of Ram and no other display adapter than the Intel one. I do not seem to experience the drag and drop problems from the file window to the slides window, but I do have the same issues described above with weird rectangular flashes in the O&A window for the style attached above and also when I scroll up and down in the files windows and back and forth in the slides window. Sometimes a slide will appear black for a minute, sometimes it will appear gray and the name disappears. Sometimes file thumbnails turn black or gray. Sometimes there are small rectangular flashes of either black or white rectangles. This happens on the folder with less than 1000 slides for which I previously sent you the file listing and sample files. And it most definitely happens in folders where there are more than 1000 slides. I tested with Beta 30. DxDiagInsp13-7000.txt
  12. Igor: I have uploaded a zip with 6 files from the above-referenced view. You can download here: https://send.firefox.com/download/a9ad57a578fdc98e/#r4GwQnz3C0TZNEBVwNGrGg
  13. Just to confirm, I am experiencing the same issues with dragging files down to the slide window in a folde of 993 files (with a subdirectory containing only one file). I note that this problem occurs even after all the thumbnails seem to have been created in the files window and the CPU and disk writes appear to have stopped. I also experience some initial flickering in the O&A when I apply the collage style attached above in this thread. I am attaching a listing here of all the files in the directory. I am also trying to send you a sample 4 or 5 of the actual files in a zip but it's 85 mb and I'm having trouble uploading to Firefox. I will try again tomorrow when I am traveling and will have a high speed connection. files_and_folders.zip
  14. Tried different size folders. In almost all of them, I sometimes had to click and drag 2 or 3 times before the files clicked on in the file window would drag down to the slides window. In a folder of 995 items with 486 jps (the rest Canon and Sony RAWs with some .tif files also) it happened pretty consistently. Also, several times when I clicked to drag, instead of adding the file to the slide window, it just selected a bunch of other files instead -- but did not move any into the slide window. Another time I clicked to drag, nothing happened, then several of the thumbnails disappeared.
  15. Sorry, but nothing seems to have changed in Beta 26. Still the same issues with the Files window lagging for a long period of time on large directory (can't drag images or double click to move them to slides ). Resources monitor shows PTE taking over much of my Disk usage. Still have flashes as I scroll horizontally in slides window and still have flashes in O&A window referenced in the video above for the slide style I attached above. If anything, dragging from the files window to the slides window seems to have gotten worse. Even after I have closed PTE, it still continues with the same disk reads show below for several more minutes. Looks like it's continuing to load or cache all the files in that folder even though it doesn't need to. It certainly doesn't make it work any better or faster if I open PTE up again after all the disk reads stop. It's like starting over.
