  1. Dave, You came through with your transition just as I had sussed it out using a white rectangle. I see you used a simpler way round for the fade through white. The only thing I didn't do was add the speed modifiers - brilliant, thanks again for putting me on the right track. Lin, I see where you're coming from too - thanks.
  2. I'm trying to alter the fade transition from fading through black to fading through white. I assume this needs a new custom transition to be generated but I'm not having any luck editing the existing (built in) fade. Any pointers please?
  3. My original question has certainly caused some interest! The downside of the software seems to be that the output does'n look like a 'genuine' signature, which I can understand. Maybe when new fonts are considered then 'handwriting' script fonts are chosen. This will give a closer approximation to a written signature. Well done Lin for your help and offer to produce video text for members. DW
  4. Thanks all for the information and comment. I'll take a look st the software you recommend Lin, even though it appears a little complicated. Would it work with a scanned signature or must we use one using an installed font?
  5. I wonder - is there a simple method of simulating the writing of a signature in PTE? Not unlike the moving route on a map I guess (which I've yet to master!).
  6. Thanks Dave - saved me again! I got as far as the flip3D transition but your style is far better, Many thanks Dennis
  7. In theory this should (and probably is) easy to do, but I'm struggling to rotate an image to have a second image appear - as if it were on the reverse of the main image. I can do this using separate slides, rotating one image 90deg then the next one another 90 to complete the 180deg transition but this seems clumsy and as I have rather a lot of such rotations to make - time consuming. Is there a custom transition out there to solve my problem? Dennis
  8. Thanks once again both of you. Settings are as you suggest DG. I think I've cracked the opening of .mp4 in VLC and set it's preferences to play full screen and exit as you suggest Jill. Many thanks for your patience
  9. Both these options have been set OK. I'm pressing on with tests. It seems that incorporating video into a manually controlled show is now proving problematic and more difficult to achieve - or am I just being pessimistic? After reading the piece about poor performance with Nvidia cards and W10 (1803), is this just a Windows thing that I can't alter?
  10. Yes Jill, I use this method for show menus and it works fine but not here I'm afraid - I just can't get the .mp4 to run at all. This is my setup, as you suggest, that should work - very frustrating! Thanks for your help so far Jill
  11. Thanks Jill, It occurred to me earlier to try this workaround but I cannot get the appropriate slide to open the video, even though I've tried all ways round - both in slide options and 'Run application or open file'. Neither seems to work for me using the resulting .exe. Obviously I'm doing something wrong here. Dennis
  12. Thanks DG, Normally this would be my way out of the problem but the stills component is to be self advancing as part of a lecture so an mp4 isn't practical I'm afraid. Looks like I'll have to interrupt the flow and show the videos in separate media players - which is a great pity.
  13. This may be the wrong forum to post to and I see discussion elsewhere related to my problem but I'm producing two long sequences to be shown very soon and each will end with a video (around 4-6mins). I have tried to add the video as an object in O&A which seems to work fine, even trimming it to suit. However on output to .exe files the videos play very jerky and stall in places, on Desktop and on laptop even worse. This is surprising as individually they both play fine in several players (VLC, WMP). I've tried both MP4 and WMF formats at different resolutions. Even a PTE converted video plays poorly. The screen aspect ratio is set to 4:3 - the videos are 16:9 but display OK. I want to achieve a seamless transition from a still image to the video, and return, without opening up another application. maybe this isn't feasible with the current v9.0.20 Any help will be welcomed as I desperately need a solution by Monday next!
  14. Photo Add - WinHTTrack works a treat, I've created many websites as a mirror on my hard drives. This PTE site does take a little time to mirror though, but worth it.
  15. Thanks for that explanation Dave - all is now clear! Den
