  1. Sound Problem

    This is true if you work out linking in the timeline. If you set the links in the project options, you can link more than one clip from the same track to the same slide. They will be marked red, but it works. BTW: This "restriction" really does not make any sense. My commentary is often split into very short clips. So I often make use of linking several consecutive clips on one track to the same slide.
  2. Combine .pte projects

    You can open two projects, highlight all slides from one project, and copy these slides into the slide list of the other project (ctrl + c; ctrl + v). Before doing it, take care that all audio clips are linked to slides.
  3. O&A - Can one expand the Keyframe Area?

    The feature that you want to see was discussed at an early stage of development of PTE 9, but it has not been implemented. My recommendation here: Insert your video into several consecutive slides, make the first instance a master video, and link the other instances to the master. The effect will be that your video will run seamlessly across several slides.
  4. I know about these features, and they are documented in the Online Help For me it is a question of esthetics and software design. The preferences for the editor should avoid functions that have side effects on the program's output. With your argument you could also move the background color from the Project Options to the Preferences (Igitt - Ugh!)
  5. Presently, Color Management in PTE is part of the editor's settings (Settings > Preferences > System). Question: What is the purpose of the edtor's settings? The settings help the user to work with the editor in a way he likes to do it. So he can configure the toolbars, choose a particular language for the user interface etc. Changing the settings typically does not have any influence on creating exe-presentations. But there is at least one exception: It is Color Management. The Color Mangement setting is not part of a project but when creating an exe-output from this project, the global color management setting becomes part of the exe-output. Not good, I think! So, when I want to prepare an exe-show for somebody else running his machine with a color profile different from mine, I have to change my global settings of my PTE editor to a wrong profile, export the exe, and then I have to reset my color settings. It works, but it is beyond any logic. If Color Management were a Project Option, it would be possible to create different instances of project files, each one according to the color needs of the destination monitors.

  7. Synchronising Images to Music - on the Fly

    That's exactly what I want to say But for people who like simple cooking recipes, it can be regarded as quite OK (This is my last contribution to this thread.)
  8. audio track from video

    I think that Denis and I are not interested in workarounds. We know about them. But we want to see that a video that has been added as an audio clip should play (presently in some case it will be ignored). Furthermore we would like PTE to accept additional audio formats like flac, aac, and ac3 ...
  9. Synchronising Images to Music - on the Fly

    Some people may like this method. Sorry, but I do not! Working this way means that you will end somewhere in the middle of the music, at a position that you cannot predict. As a consequence, you have to stall the music. Even if you fade it out, it is likely that it will not sound good. In cases of simple shows having just a single music clip, I prefer to start with the finale, and then working backwards, from the end of the show towards the start. Fading in from somewhere in the music at the start of the show typically works better than fading out at the end. BTW, from a musical point of view, I do not like the transition points in the example. In most cases I would like to see them at beat 1 of the next bar.

  11. @willemx Please put some of your project files where you see problems into a zip file and attach it to a post. Then I can have a look at it
  12. Will there be a user guide in German for V9?
  13. I have just made a test myself: 3 blank slides, slide times: 2 seconds, quick transitions, each slide with a run command, absolute paths to executable files with quotation marks in the slide options. I created an exe file from this project. Result: Only the shows called by slides 2 and 3 started, while the one to be called by slide 1 did not. Everything worked well after adding an additional slide without run command at the very beginning. Perhaps a bug!?
  14. The methods for running several shows consecutively, as mentioned above, do not work for presentations in a typical (say German) AV group. There you will meet the situation where some shows are videos, and others are exe presentations created with different AV programs. An easy way to obtain consecutive playing is obtained by inserting a blank (black) slide for each show, and start the shows using the run commands in the slide options. Of course, this method can easily be refined in several directions
  15. audio track from video

    As I said above: I think that we had this problem with V8, too. But in V8.0.22 the said problem has been solved. My recommendation for a future version: You may add ffmpeg in all cases. Then it might also be easy to accept aac and flac audio clips. In my opinion it does not make sense to accept a video as audio input that includes (say) flac audio, while not accepting a standard flac audio clip (and the same for aac, ac3, ...).
