Video & Slides in Same Show?

Recommended Posts

I have been using Pictures to EXE for several years and have been quite happy with it. Typically I make a slide show in which I control the length of time for each image as the show proceeds. I would like to be able to add some video in the middle of this show.

Is it possible? If so, how?

I add no music and narrate and answer questions as I go along.

Eleanor,

PTE does not support the inclusion of video clips in its current release. This sometimes vexed subject of video clips is very firmly on the wish list of many users and is likely to be addressed in a future release of PTE.

regards,

Peter

What a great suggestion!

Last year, I bought a new Canon camera with the possibility of filming in Full HD, and I would love to combine video with slides, and assemble them in PTE.

On YouTube, you may find many videos using a combination of slides with video:

Naturally, you have to set it up to HD 1080p, and use Full screen to see the best effect!

They were done with Magix Movie Edit Pro 16 which includes the possibilities of combining slides and video. But I think PTE is far superior when comes the time to manage slides.

So, using both video and slides in PTE would certainly be a great asset in the future.

This old chestnut again. Personally I don't see the point, if you want movies shoot movies, I'm happy the way things are. Just another marketing gimmick.

Not, perhaps, the perfect solution, but as a last resort you could always try converting a video clip into an animated GIF, I suppose.

Sorry to remind you Eric, but you never saw the point of creating a slide show at 1024*768 and then playing it back at 1280*1024.

If you don't like it, don't use it, but it has to become a part of PTE at some stage.

Igor/Wnsoft has in the past already acknowledged to include video clips. The question is if its addition/release date is going to be timely and quick enough for those wanting and eager Users. Igor has alot of work (also a Mac Version) on his current agenda and what comes out next is in his best interest.

As Barry has mentioned, if Users dont want a included function or feature of PTE ... they only need to not use it. Most programs have many features and functions that users dont require or use ... just as a quick example look at users of Photoshop.
