View Full Version : Program to show slides on TV from a CD
29th of October 2001 (Mon), 05:49
I want to create a slide program (can be interactive or self running) that can be burned to a CD and then played on a DVD player for viewing on a television. Is there a program that does this or what steps are necessary to accomplish it.
I have hundreds of family slides that I want to copy and share via this method.

For those of you who have viewed my question, I have answered it myself. I went looking for the program I described and found an excellent choice. Pinnacle Express is a program designed to capture, edit, and setup up videos and stills for viewing on television. The program is self contained, right down to the transfer to CD or DVD. It has an interactive menu that allows some "chapter" jumping. I found the program to be intuitive and easy to use. I now have a vehicle to present my slides on television. It works.

Just a note to anyone who may want to buy Pinnacle Express. I have run into to a programming bug that has made Express pretty much useless. It has a compiler mode that locks up when the files get fairly large. The Program can record in VCD, S-VCD (MPEG2) and DVD mode. My trouble is in the VCD or regular record mode. The other two modes do not appear to be affected by the bug. I hope Pinnacle can remedy this glitch, because the program is just right for producing a "DVD" on a CD.
I will keep you posted.
