Hi Godfrey, I must say again how impressed I am with what you are doing, certainly you have experience in these things and must be a coder.

You asked for input so I am putting in my 2 cents.

I think the actual photgraphs are perhaps a little too small and get somewhat lost in the scenery. Maybe rendering the project, then expanding it in the timeline would be a good workaround.

My other "criticism" is that when you put the game characters in the mix, you make it very narrow in usability. If you made a version without those then someone could use this for their safari trip.

That being said, I can't wait for your next theme, idea. My 3D slideshow frames look like child's scribbles compared to what you are doing, so happy you found us here! HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

Hi Barry



Thank you sooooo much for your valuable input. You are without doubt correct when you say that I should remove the game characters I will rather add more animals.



I truly appreciate your input and will update the template ASAP.



Once again, thank you soooo much. PDTemplateZone - https://oneclickmobi.com/powerdirector-templates

We did see your first YT video of the Jungle popup book before you changed it. My daughter loved it. This one template would be good as is for gamers, old users, the younger crowd, and college students alike.

It is easy to add characters to the project by placing them as pip objects or gif files on track 4 in the template I tried.

Looking forward to the release of this one!!! sealedlaughingsmile

You are going to tire of me, but..

you are mixing fauna from different continents, grizzly bears and elephants. I think the templates should reflect a certain theme. So if you are up to the task, and if you can change flora, African theme, New World (the Americas), your original with the game characters, think of where people go on vacation and what they see. I might also consider altering the name Jungle Book due to its connection to a particular movie/book. Perhaps ''The Adventure'', or ''Exotic Travels'', almost anything but Jungle Book.

These are my opinions and I would love to see what my fellow members add. Again I am thrilled at what you are doing. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

Hi Barry

Thank you once again for your valuable input. And no, I'm NOT going to get tired

I will try and update in the next versions. I first have to study the different continents with their animals PDTemplateZone - https://oneclickmobi.com/powerdirector-templates

Can you also alter the frame styles? What you are doing is sort of in the realm of what I was doing, though your project is on steroids. My 3D frames have themes, like you did, Wedding, African Safari, Party Balloons, Tropical vacation, Middle East, etc. In my case I am only providing picture frames and a background, maybe you could PM me the software you are using. I doubt I'd create themes myself, but I am very curious as what you are doing and what you are using, and what can or cannot be altered.

Thanks. Have already pm'ed you on findings on this express project in PD14.

Did spend some time with it on PD9 which is six year old version of PD. In the end I did get it to half work and produce a file. Had to make numerous changes to the project to get it going each time as it constantly crashed PD9. See the screenshot preview window. It is not pretty. I beleive it can work if someone spend time and make all the necessary modifications. It would be a good project for someone who has the older versions of PD, have some spare time, and do not want to upgrade to a newer version of PD.

Hi tomasc



Thank you sooo much for taking the time to do the testing and posting your findings It would be GREAT if Cyberlink could sponser me with an older PD version as to enable me to create working versions for those members as well.

Thank you also for letting me know about the project NOT showing up under Express Projects.

If you want the project to show up, please change the name of the pds file to PackedProject and it will show up. Sorry, my mistake PDTemplateZone - https://oneclickmobi.com/powerdirector-templates

Hi When I download your zip file it only seems to include a small text file and nothing else?

Thanks
