    Crossover V17.1

    No you can't test the win Exe, but you can preview the show, which is essentially the same thing.

    Crossover V17.1

    That's good news Igor, PTE seems to be speedier and more responsive using Crossover.

    Article in AV News

    Hi folks, the link below is a web based preview of an article to be published in the printed version of May AV News, that I think you might be interested in. Please scroll down to 'Club News'. It relates to my local camera club celebrating winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd at a recent AV Festival. Great write up and it includes Vimeo links. Excerpt "Judith took the photographs, wrote the script, composed the music, played the music and then created an outstanding audio visual that earned a worthy first place in the 2018 NIPA AV festival." https://mailchi.mp/958f0f82ce39/av-links-april-2018?e=5cace05d0e

    OUT AND ABOUT - New slideshow

    Hi Maureen and all. Sorry I've been away for so long. Due to circumstances... I lost my passion for AV's... Some recent success at the 2018 NIPA AV Festival has ignited my interest again. So; I have downloaded your show, and many others, I look forward to viewing them and of course I will contribute in due course. All the very best Mark

    Crossover V17.1

    Error message when I try to create a Mac version.

    Crossover V17.1

    PTE via Crossfire couldn't see my external drive. But it could see the My Documents folder on my Mac. So I created a folder within My Documents called PTE and copied all my zipped projects. Then I unzipped them, you can see the file structure in my screenshot, all works great. By the way, I get an error message when creating a Mac version.

    Crossover V17.1

    I only have PTE installed using Crossover. Screen shot of PTE running under Crossover, looks exactly the same as it does running in Windows with VMware Fusion. The other screenshot is of folder that opens when I double click on Crossover. Also, creating a HQ mp4 at 100% quality took forever (sometimes well over an hour) with Mac/VMware Fusion/Windows10/PTE, but under Mac/Crossover/PTE it takes only minutes (I assume this is what normally happens when using PTE in Windows)

    Crossover V17.1

    Hi Folks, Just to let Mac owners know that Crossover V17.1 will install PTE. Running Win 10 in a Wine bottle (I have no idea what this means - but it works) results in PTE working much better and faster than using VMware Fusion and Win 10 on a virtual machine. I have an old iMac, 2011, with 12GB RAM. Using Crossover and PTE, I have 4GB RAM free to play with. Uisng VMwareFusion, Win 10 and PTE, I have jsut 512MB to play with.

    PTE and Mac Apps

    Hi Igor, sorry for the delay. It plays but no sound.

    PTE and Mac Apps

    I have the latest PTE installed on my Mac, using VMware Fusion and Windows 10, all updated. When I create a Mac version, going back to my Mac it doesn't play. I also have the Crossover program and when I create a Mac app, it too, doesn't play. Screen shots below. Any ideas?

    The End Of All Our Exploring

    I notice that when I double click on the poland.app, it opens up my 'Documents' folder, for some reason. But the show doesn't run. I have worked out, that all you have to do is click on 'Cancel', in the opened Documents folder. The show will then run.
  15. It was our 38th wedding anniversary. My wife surprised me with a trip to Poland. We did all the usual tourist visits and had one day left with nothing planned. My wife suggested we visit Auschwitz. I was most reluctant, I had heard how emotional it was, but I finally agree to go. I didn't have my Fuji camera, just my iPhone. Once there I was enthralled and I took many photos, just with my iPhone. I later then forgot all about the photos. Then I heard a track, listening on Spotify, called "The End Of All Our Exploring". That's how it works for me. I hear some music and suddenly I know just what images will work. So; I downloaded the files from iCloud, always a pain. I had previously adjusted them all on my phone with Snapseed, and all I did was convert them to mono.
