xat slide show - monster temp file - hangs up



I am getting EXTREMELY frustrated trying to create a VCD of my
recent trip to Disney World. If I leave out all music files, it
works, but as soon as I add some background music, it goes into
orbit. It seems to hang up - creating an ever larger temp file (up
to 4 gigabytes) then pops up a message saying my disk is full -
which is not true - I have over 100 GB available. Then when I click
OK on the error message, I have to abort and all is lost.

What the heck is going on? I have tried both wav and mp3 files with
the same problem. Someone please help!!

I just want a simple menu with multiple slide shows with background
music. Is there another program that will do this with good picture
quality on a large screen TV set?

Hello Gus

I know it is extremly frustrating but the program will work but I
havn't had that problem - note you can only use a mp3 sound track
you should have had an error with the wav file ( unless things have
changed ).

All I can sudgest is try a very small show with a couple of pictures
and a short sound track to see if you can get that to work. Are you
using transitions as that can eat up memory etc.

Also save your project before creating it as you should be able to
get it back.

Before trying Xatshow I must have tried 4 or 5 other programs and I
can say the best quility picture was with Xatshow by a very long way
in one case.

Regards Anthony

I had this exact problem. It was because the MP3 I had didn't have all the
exact right header information or something like that. I down loaded the
latest beta and that fixed it.

Have you got a long time interval set?

How many pictures have you got and what length of music?

Can you send me your settings?

Press the save button and send me the .xats file?

Chris.

Thanks - maybe there is hope! When you say you downloaded the latest
beta and that fixed it - latest beta of what? The XATSHOW or your
mp3 converter? I have version 5.02 of XATSHOW which is the purchased
version. Is there a newer beta I can try - if so where is it?

Thanks, Chris for responding. On time interval, I have it set for 5
seconds. When there is NO background music I turn "Spaced to Music"
off. Here is what I have:

Main Menu: Background picture, mp3 song 159 sec long.
SS#1: 18 pictures, mp3 song 215 sec (12 sec/pic)
SS#2: 24 pictures, mp3 song 182 sec (7.6 sec/pic)
SS#3: 46 pictures, mp3 song 249 sec (5.4 sec/pic)
SS#4: 64 pictures, mp3 song #1 148 sec, mp3 song #2 203 sec
for a total of 351 sec (5.5 sec/pic)

Settings are:
Slide Duration 5 sec
NTSC
Crop images to fit (images are full 2272x1704 from Canon G3)
Apply Anti-Filter OFF
Reduce image to fit TV 6%
Each slide show set to Customize this slide show with
Crop images to fit
Run Slideshow once
Spaced to music length

I will attempt to send you the ".xats" file by e-mail - don't see a
way to attach it here.

Darwin is probably right, 5.1 should fix it.

Here is the latest version:

Interesting. I followed the rules - downloaded the trial version
(which does NOT support VCD creation), then bought the full version,
which is 5.02 and the one I am having problems with. I will download
the beta and certainly try it. Thanks!
