Producer, which joins the leading ProShow product line as its top-tier programme, is equipped with powerful new features that streamline workflow and enable professional photographers to quickly and efficiently create quality slide show presentations that sell. Unique features of ProShow Producer include multiple layers per slide, RAW file support, custom show templates, professional DVD menu authoring, colour profile awareness, watermarking, caption interactivity and manual show control.
Photography consumers now want more than just print packages. The need for professional tools is felt industry wide among photographers, says Paul Schmidt, President of Photodex Corporation. Producer allows a photographer to create a compelling DVD slide show to sell as the cornerstone of their digital services, as an add-on product, or as a promotional tool to boost their business.
ProShow Producers enhanced workflow capabilities make it fast and easy to create highly customised slide shows, while slide show and menu templates can be created to minimise repetitive work. RAW file support, new to ProShow Producer, saves file conversion time when using high-resolution images. The encoding speed of Producer has also been optimised for faster performance, and is up to ten times faster than other industry leading DVD authoring and video editing software applications.
PC shows and DVD menus can now be branded and customised to represent a photographers identity. This feature allows photographers to customise every aspect of a DVD menu including layout, pages, and colour scheme, providing them with more control over the output quality, and for PC Shows photographers can customise the progress status bar, the volume bar and title bar text, CD icon and more. This allows photographers to promote their business, not the product they used to create the show.
ProShow Producer also includes more creativity functions than in previous programmes - the layering function allows photographers to add multiple images and videos to a single slide, even with transparency and masking capabilities. The interactivity function makes it possible to use text as links to other slides, websites, or menus, giving photographers further control over their slide shows and enabling them to generate more revenue from their work.
