    Blending mode "Add"

    I'm sorry to say, but PTE does not offer Addition (nor do most of the other AV programs). It would be fine if PTE would offer Addition, and it would even be better if there were the blending mode "Screen" (in German "Negativ multiplizieren") that we know from Photoshop. Addition and Screen offer possibilities to create screen effects (to some extend) that we can seen when blending classical slides (diapositives).

    Does PTE need a name change

    Do you think that the discussion will come back to the original topic of name change?

    Does PTE need a name change

    Not seeing risks with EXE files is a very personal point of view. I cannot share this opinion. Today, people rather make use of mobile devices than using PCs. If you want to share your PTE productions with others, you should better make use of videos. So I would regard a product name including EXE as outdated. As I said above, I would prefer to keep the letters PTE while replacing EXE by something else

    Does PTE need a name change

    Perhaps a good suggestion. We have to keep in mind that (at least in Germany) "Ex" can mean "my former husband"

    Does PTE need a name change

    When people ask me: "What are you doing?", I have given up to say "AV" or "Audiovision". People would not understand. So, PicturesToAV is not what I would like to see. As Jill, I am thinking about an expression that would keep the acronym PTE. It is not yet clear to me which word to choose for the letter "E".

    Does PTE need a name change

    Without being able to present a good alternative right now, I would recommend to choose a name that avoids "EXE".
  7. The Challenge 321 is an international contest for short AV-sequences. The maximum duration of a sequence must NOT exceed 3 minutes 21 seconds. This short run-time is the "Challenge" for the authors. As in 2017 and 2018 the Challenge for 2019 is organized by a group in AV-Dialog (a national German AV-organization). There will judging teams in Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, South Africa, Switzerland, United Kingdom. Submission time for 2019: January 15 to March 31. Detailed information: www.challenge321.org

    Challenge 321 (2019)

    No, they are not available on the Internet. In 2018 there were contributions from 14 countries. The organizer of the challenge cannot deal with 14 laws for copyright. I am the organizer for the judging in Munich. If you happen to come to this nice city, I can show you the best contributions from 2017 and 2018

    Zoom in O&A

    A simple example: Suppose that you are working with a collage with several small images (moving and changing) on top of a background image. In most cases, as long as the background image is static, you can work with a sequence of slides; but if you want to have a somewhat complex animation for your background image, you may be forced to do everything in a single slide, and its duration may become quite long This is a typical situation where AV-programs that offer multiple image tracks have an advantage.

    Good luck ! "Meet" you when judging the Challenge 321

    wie kann ich der Ton bei Videos bearbeiten ?

    Kurz gesagt: Du fügst das Video zweimal ein, einmal im Bildbereich mit ausgeschaltetem Ton, einmal als Audio.Clip in eine Tonspur. Wichtig: Die Startpunkte müssen übereinstimmen. Bei dem als Tondatei eingefügten Video ergeben sich die normalen Möglichkeiten der Regelung.

    The changing face of Cumbria

    This is quite a dangerous remark. I would recommend to study the metrical structure of the music. For me, the typical points to change the images are the beats 1 in the measures. In popular music we often hear a backbeat (syncopated accentuation on the "off" beats 2 and 4, often played with a snare drum). This will give you a lot of peaks in the waveform, which I would consider to be wrong. Nevertheless many AV people make use of them A remark on the end of the Cumbria sequence: It sounds a bit stalled. It is always difficult to fade out the music somewhere in the middle. It might be better to fade into the music (somewhere in the middle) and let it come to its natural end. You then better develop your sequence from end to start

    Do you burn DVD video in PTE?

    It seems that this topic is about to loose its way. The original question is: Do PTE users still burn DVDs, and do they need a DVD tool inside PTE? A typical PTE users has an internet connection, and of course has a computer. Furthermore, a typical PTE user who is able to export videos with PTE should also be in the position to use one of the free tools to burn DVDs for friends who neither have an internet connection nor a computer.

    Zoom in O&A

    You call it "zoom", I call it "timeline scaling" in O&A. Anyway, this is a good suggestion, and I hope to see it soon!

    Zoom in O&A

    Timeline scaling in O&A has been asked several times (in early times of version 9), e.g. here. What about writing a new request in "Suggestions for new versions"?
  16. I start a blank project (version 9.0.20) and insert one image. I go to some folder including an MP3-file. I switch to the fullscreen view of the file list (F3). I highlight the MP3-file. I click on the Add button. PTE freezes
  17. V9.0.21 from today solves the problem

    Very simple transition

    You only checked the images in the two slides. As you see in the attachment: During the transition there are jagged edges. Go to "Manage transitions" and check Antialiasing inside the transition for the images that represent the slides. Jagged_Edges.zip

    Very simple transition

    Nice transition! Just a recommendation: Inside the transition, use "Edge Anti-aliasing" for the slides, and make pan and rotation smooth

    Key frame colour

    What are (in your opinion) default values for keyframes?

    Copy Paste Sound File

    Hi MUR, keeping your knowledge as a secret surely is not a good decision. Many users will appreciate your contributions. But IMO you should present them in some other place, perhaps in "Tutorials & Articles". I know that only a very restricted group of forum members has access to this section, I don't have access either (a fact that amuses me). But this might be a matter of change

    Copy Paste Sound File

    Hi MUR, the problem with comments of that kind (presenting workarounds in cases of suggestions for new versions) is that they can be regarded counter-arguments with respect to the suggestions of the original posters. In this particular case, copy and paste for audio clips is a feature that (almost) everybody would expect to exist. The best way for you might have been to support Barry's suggestion, and to add your method for the time when copy and paste does not yet exist.

    Copy Paste Sound File

    Copy and paste is a standard operation, and it should not be done using a workaround. I have missed copy and paste for audio clips several times.

    Png Images

    Jose, if PTE runs your project with about 4 GB, my suggestion will not help you. It will help only you when creating EXE files. I have just made an example. I created a small project including three videos with total file size of about 5 GB. I could run this the corresponding EXE file while leaving the videos outside the EXE. In the present situation you might split your project into several parts, create several videos and combine them in a video editor.
