    Linear Dissolve vs Smooth Dissolve

    It's a very subtle difference and I am not sure I would have seen it with a 2s dissolve if I wasn't specifically looking for it. It seems a little more noticeable at 0.5s

    Mp4 Size test

    It comes out much the same and confirms what I said above. There is no real advantage to reduce image size when making a slide show.....IF........ your publish option is an Mp4 only

    Your welcome, it’s not such a hard technique when you come to do it.

    Mp4 Size test

    Piscal - I used the same settings for all 3 tests Igor - I sort of expected the same file size between images of the same pixel value 6000*4000 saved at different compression, because of the reasons you said above. That the encoders use the source images. What I have trouble with is smaller images coming out larger. I did another test just now with 16 high resolution images into PTE, where the images are all up in the 6000px on the long side. Together the 16 images add up to about 190MB. I left a standard 2s fade 7s duration and output them as HD videos, This time I selected 1920*1080 as per screen grab. File size as Mp4 46.655MB I then dragged 16 lower resolution images into PTE, where the images were 2560*1706. Together they add up to about 8MB. I left a standard 2s fade 7s duration and output them as HD videos the same as the other. The file size as Mp4 45.898MB I think I can see the problem with my logic after reading your reply and looking at my second test. I think that I have been conditioned over the years with regard to file sizes with executable files and I expected to see the same with a video, but of course if the video is being converted to 1920*1080. It doesn't matter what size the images started off at. In all my examples the starting images were always greater than 1920*1080 and that was the deciding factor. They will always come out pretty close . This all came about after I started thinking about the future and Mp4 videos. If the publish option from PTE is to be solely an MP4, there really is no need to resize images for the creation process as long as your own PC can cope what your creating

    Mp4 Size test

    I was thinking today that in the future, if Mp4 videos take over as the norm for AV and presentations, which they may well do. What is the implications between images of different sizes. So, I did a quick and dirty test. 6 * 3:2AR images 6000*4000pxs saved as Jpg Level 12 and made into a 60p Mp4 = 18.177MB 6 * 3:2AR images 6000*4000pxs saved as Jpg Level 6 and made into a 60p Mp4 = 18.177MB 6 * 3:2AR images 2560*1706pxs saved as Jpg Level 6 and made into a 60p Mp4 = 19.552MB i Came back to this test on a bright new morning and got the same results. I can see how a HD video of various Jpg compressions (image sizes the same) will be evened out during the video creation process, but why are those 6 images, which are physically smaller than the others end up 1.4MB larger when made into a video, that makes no sense to me. I took those 6 images at 2560*1706 and reduced them still further to 1920*1280 and the 60p HD video then came out at 17.748MB  Is anyone able to help me out with the thinking on this?

    Wifi control

    To be honest I am not sure what I want. I was doing a talk last night at the camera club and had some notes on my ipad so I had a memory jogger when the lights went out. I thought of the issue and posted it while it was in my mind.

    Wifi control

    Is it feasible and/or reasonable to request the ability to to control A PTE presentation from a smart phone or mobile device?

    The Directors Cut

    Well. Thank you for those kind words and all I can think of saying in response is that Photography is and Art and those who can't see that is missing an awful lot. Here we are on an enthusiasts forum on ways to present that art, so perhaps that is accepted more here then elsewhere. There is no better way than Audio Visual and PicturesToExe to present modern digital images in my view

    Mur Why can't you just say you prefer to have a warning? what is it with social media that makes people feel they cannot reply without having a dig too? Can't we agree to disagree and remain platonic.
