Slideshow Creator question

Hey y'all, when using slide show creator, or Photodirector 15 to make a slideshow, how do I slow down the speed of the pictures?



I want to use the "Normal" theme but I dont see any options allowing me to slow down the speed the photos are displayed.



thanks

That option sadly is not included. You need to emulate the slideshow on the timeline, a much slower process. Win 10, i7

I'm not sure what emulate means here, but if it means creating the slideshow, rendering it, and then bringing that new file into the timeline to apply slow speed to it, then I agree. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

Hi Rob -

HDedit & Barry have given the only two alternatives. There's no way of controlling slideshow timing within PDR's Slideshow module.

Actually, to "emulate" or "replicate" what PDR does with the Normal slideshow template... it's quicker to do it manually!

36 photos in timeline:


  1. Select all - click Slideshow - click Normal - Next - Advanced editing = ~23 secs

  2. Go to Transitions - select "Apply Random Transition to All" = ~13 secs


... and that's all the Normal template does! Apply random transitions. Doing it manually not only allows the user to dictate timing, but also the transitions used (using favorites).

Cheers - Tony
