DVD Slideshow?!?!?!???

ok lightstalkers, i need your help. i need to create a slideshow, burn it to a dvd and have it playback in a dvd player, independent of a computer. no computers allowed. and i need to do it without final cut pro, cuz i don’t have it, nor do i know how to use it and i’m on deadline. so…a dvd slideshow is the question? does anybody know if quicktime pro supports slideshow burns to dvd, with playback on a dvd player? or another program? all the best.

some people do it on Imovie and then make a dv file from it. Burned on a dvd with Idvd or similar it works. You just have to know if it’s a NTSC or a PAL DVD player. The quality doesn’t seam great on screen but should look better on a TV screen or projector (they are at 750 pixel by 540 or so, so on your screen it would look like crap)
You actually can put your quicktime movie directly on Imovie storyline, without making the slideshow directly on it.

First of all make a slideshow on flash, then export it into AVI format and burn on DVD.
it will work on both pc and mac.

iMovie → iDVD → Burn

people will go WOW and it will take you less than an hour

just make sure that the DVD player will be a newer one or it may not read DVD-RW disks

I just did a slideshow with iMovie → iDVD and ran into a problem that you may also run into. When you create the movie in iMovie, it does not create it for the TV safe area that can be shown in iDVD. I ended up running all of my images through a photoshop action that reduced the image size then created a black border all the way around the image large enough so that the whole picture is in the tv safe area. You may want to do some testing first on image sizes and such, and make it work for you. But after you burn it in iDVD, it runs great in any DVD player.

If QTPro won’t burn to DVD, you can use Roxio Toast (www.roxio.com). Toast can also copy DVDs/CDs, so once you’ve burned the first DVD, it’s faster to make copies if you need them. It’s a bit inscrutable (but not impossible) if you need a custom menu, but will burn to auto-play very easily. Aspect ratio for normal TV screens is 4:3, and widescreen is 16:9, for determining your layout dimensions so your images won’t be distorted on TV. (On Mac you can also build in Flash and export to .mov.)
