PhotoDVD Transition name inconsistency plus more

Postby ira » Sun May 07, 2017 6:00 pm

I've edited this post many times since my first use of PhotoDVD two days ago developing a project that has 25 folders with 445 images involving SmartSound audio in each folder. As I proceeded, I realized some of my concerns were not warranted, as misunderstood operation and had not read the guide. However, there remains a few items of concern and few wish items.

While I have other applications that can create slideshows, including Corel Pinnacle Studio 19.5 Ultimate that I use for Video Productions, your PhotoDVD is "the right tool for that job." So, it was worth my time to share my concerns. Nothing here is critical. So, if you run out of high priority items on your other applications, turn to this post/product/list. Of course, if you feel it is "the operator", correct me please.

Item 1:
1.The transition names in the Settings, Images, Allowed Transitions pull-down list do not match those when floating over the icons in Fast Preview Transition tab. Please correct this.
2. For now, please tell me which name in the pull-down list corresponds to "Granularity?"
3. Does checking "Store Door" enable all 4 door icons? If so, how would I enable more than one but less than all 4 from the Transition tab?
4. Does checking "Venitian" enable all 8 "Moving Bars"? If so, how do I select more than one but less than 8 bars.

Item 2:
If I have only one image loaded, click Fast Preview, then click the "X" "Remove Displayed Photo(s) from Project" - PhotoDVD crashes or shall I say CLOSES. If there is more than one image, then it will ONLY happen when I'm down to ONE IMAGE in the project. I do not believe you intend for PhotDVD to close. I hear the crash tone when this happens, too. There is NO fail dialog that pops up. Not critical but not nice. It does NOT happen when deleting the single image from the main project window, only if done from Fast Preview. Tell me if you notice same. Using latest vsophotodvd 4.0.0.37d having just d/l'd and installed it.

Item 3:
Why does Division By Zero pop-up randomly?
Examples:
a: While I scroll through Photo list - 445 photos loaded. Project Duration is only 44 min. Is not repeatable.
b: When resaving project.
Note: PhotoDVD does not crash or close when this happens. I just close the dialog and continue.

Item 4: Why doesn't the program remember MAX BURN SPEED or whatever x16, etc I set that is possible and available in your other programs? It always jumps back to x4.[/b ]

[b]Item 5 - Wish list:

a: Include a 4th Chapters option - "Chapter at EVERY folder added to Project."
b: Add more menu choices as you have created/provided in CXTV, etc.
c: Normalize audio level of ALL mp3's included. Yes, I have s/w to that but would not want to make the change within album/folders.

1) not an exhaustive list? I don't know
added as feature request http://bugs.vso-software.fr/view.php?id=12963 but there could be technical reasons on why this is the case
2) you can check only it and as you play in the fast preview the transition used is highlighted, or
