Archiving Feature suggestion and Understanding Music



Complete archiving for home viewing and complete archive viewing for
Grandparents.

At this point I am not planning to force them to watch the entire VCD in
one sitting <grin>. However, I know they would loose 50 different CDs
if I compose them as little "watchable shows".

Which just made me think of a question/suggestion. Is there anyway to
make the PC slide show contain the full version of the photo (uncropped,
uncompressed) - so I could use the VCD generation as an achive of print
quality versions of the pictures. I know this dramatically reduces the
amount that can fit on a VCD - but not having to have a separate
archiving routine would sure be beneficial.

If you make a show that has 1700 slides and is 56 minutes long not only
will this make a HUGE file on your machine, but your viewers will likely
die a horrible death from "slideshow overdose." What is it you are
doing that requires a 1700 slide show??

I have done this by first creating the disk with xatshow. Then I use
VCDEasy to rip the content of the disk. Next add a directory with
all the original jpg files and edit the xml file to include the
additional track. Finally rebuild the disk image from VCDeasy and
then burn the disk. The disk now contains the slide show playable on
PC and DVD plus the original photos. Of course I would prefer that
this can be done by xatshow.
