  1. These three programs were first flagged up on the forum about three years ago and I bought them then. For anyone looking for non-subscription software for photo manipulation, design and illustration purposes, and can afford the very sensible prices, I think they might be a serious consideration. Regards wideangle
  2. This issue was flagged up a long, long time ago, and had some discussion, but was never addressed, presumably because of other priorities. Hopefully, it may be resolved, as it certainly is a hindrance. Regards wideangle
  3. Paul Apologies for asking, but what is Ae? Good effect, by the way!
  4. Paul Another great and impressive piece of work from you. Well done! I can't even begin to think how you did that, but is it something that can be turned into a Style, or is it much too complicated? Regards wideangle
  5. Surely this is a no-brainer, or am I missing something here? It's not rocket science to say that the aspect ratio of a show is logically going to be dictated and guided by the device on which it is going to be viewed, rather than the device which produced the original images. Creating a show in anything other than 16x9 seems to be a backward step to me. (Just my opinion!) Regards wideangle
  6. Hi Rosemary I’ve just tracked down a conversation we had many moons ago about using Backup in Zip (see below) [Posted January 8 Hi Rosemary The Backup in Zip is extremely useful generally. I do a Backup in Zip for every project I create. It is a very quick way to create a security backup of your work, as, in one click, it collects together copies of all the files you have used in that project, and zips them together. It’s also handy for transferring a project from, say, a desktop to a laptop. Regards wideangle] Obviously it’s slipped your mind!! I would get into the habit of using it at the end of every project you complete, as a way of getting an immediate backup of all the files in one place. Not only are you collecting your pictures together, but you are pulling in all other used files eg audio etc. Regards wideangle
  7. Another great effect, Paul. Thank you. You continue to keep my grandchildren amused. Regards wideangle
  8. Hi TheDom I've just been trying this - very impressive! However, I seem to be seeing a couple of little hiccups. First, should there be another font to install (for the ink droplets)? Secondly, I tried to create a simple headline which seemed to be OK. When I previewed it, the writing began to appear, but parts of the letters had small gaps in them to start with. I'm not sure what's happening there at the moment - using PT AV Studio Pro 10.0.14. Regards wideangle
  9. Ok, but that’s water under the bridge, as they say. Get to grips with PTE AV and you won’t regret it! Regards wideangle
  10. Hi Doug The best advice I can give to you is to forget about MOTV completely. You seem to be trying to do things in PTE AV Studio by following methods you used in MOTV, and they don’t work. You are just ending up being confused and frustrated, which is not a good start! For example, you say that to create a multi-image slide in MOTV you first start by putting all the images in the slide list then go from there. That is not how you do things in PTE. All you do is start with a single slide in the slide list (think of it as a container). You then go into O&A and add your images or videos etc into this one slide, to create your multi-image slide. As you add items, you can control their behaviour in a precise way by using key frames if you wish. Everything you do in O&A immediately becomes active in your slideshow. You don’t need to do a Save of any sort at that point. You can continue to develop your slideshow by adding more slides (containers) to the slide list. Each of these slides can be a single image, a single video, or multiple combinations created as described above. Again, with your audio comment you say “In MOTV you would...................”! If I were you I would spend a short time watching some of the videos that are around, on the basics, just to get started properly, rather than misleading yourself. Don’t forget the online User Guide as well - plenty of guidelines there. Regards wideangle
  11. Hi Doug You now seem to have grasped the gist of what Styles and Themes are all about. Yes you can apply a Style then go into the Objects and Animations window to tweak it and modify its effect. (It’s also useful just to go into O&A to get an idea of how a Style works). If you modify a Style to suit your needs, you could maybe take it one stage further and define a new Style to include your modifications. Regards wideangle
  12. Paul As usual, many, many thanks. Regards wideangle
  13. Paul Your observation about the slide thumbnail showing a frame from a video is not foolproof. If the video started with zero opacity, no video frame would be displayed. I agree that the O&A window should probably be the window for making the main editing decisions, but that wasn't quite what seismicguy wanted. Regards wideangle
  14. I get what seismicguy is saying, in that he wants a quick, visual way of checking along the slide list to pick out slides that are just videos. ( My crude way is just to look at the duration of slides along the slide list, because my video slide durations tend to be pretty obvious by being numbers like 12.271 etc rather than nice round figures!) The problem with looking at the filetype in the status bar is that you have to click on each slide in turn to display the information, which rather defeats the object of wanting it to be quick. Ditto if you need to rename each slide that contains a video. I'm not familiar with MOTV. Did it allow you to have a mixture of pictures and videos within one slide? If so, how did it indicate the slide contents in its slide list, because you would have exactly the same problem here in PTE AV Studio, where a slide could have a mixture of content?
