Pro Show Gold is better than Pro Show Glod - a cheap imitation.

You could try windows movie maker.

Roxio's Easy Media Creator 2009, It also does a few other things, But it's slideshow on DVD output quality is superb.

I have directly comapared the quality with that produced by Adobes " Encore 2 " and you really can't tell them apart.

Check it out here....

A lot of people that are into AV's use Pictures To Exe only available from winsoft on line.I have used it for many years and you get life time updates for free and it only cost $49.00.
To see loads of AV's by photographers look at beechbrook.com all free.

Hi al
I seemed to have stired up a debate on which is the best programme. Which is going to win?

Is it just me or is PSG a pain in the rear. I seem to spend l-o-t-s of time making shows (weddings, approx 500 to 700 resized files approx. 400kb in size) only to get problems with disc burning (I always burn 3 for each show) and then my hard drive gets thoroughly fragmented so I continually have to remove the programme, defrag & reinstall.

I am using version 32_2047 from April '08 as my subscription for updates has expired.

Does anyone know if later editions are more reliable or if it's worth getting Producer.

Fed up with effin' & jeffin' - I seem to spend more time on slideshows than I do in Capture One & CS2 !!!!!

It's a relief to know I'm not the only one who has issues with PSG, I thought it was just me being useless!
I have had repeated problems with disks only playing halfway through and stopping, the computer locks up, the software itself just doesn't want to play, I can't make alterations - the list goes on.
I have recently tried Roxio Creator but haven't spent a great deal of time on it.
What are the slideshows in Lightroom like? Anyone have experience of those?

I have used PSG quite a lot and the only issue I have had is they sometimes take a long while to load on my DVD player before appearing on my TV.

I have not tried burning 3 disks at a time. I make an iso image and use that if I want more copies.
