VCD Timing



I created a VCD from a slideshow that ran perfectly on the PC (the
file was generated at the same time as the VCD file). However, the
timing of the music and the slides is way off only on the VCD. I
would have thought that since I did it without transitions, the music
would last longer than the pictures. However, it is the other way
around. Any ideas to fix this?

VCD Timing



Hello Keith & Niki

Not all DVD players play VCDs properly. Can you try the CD in a friend or
neighbours machine?

Chris.

VCD Timing




I have already tried it in other DVD players and the timing is the same and is not in synch with the PC based slideshow. I even played it on the PC it was created on using WinDVD and it played the same way with the timing off.

VCD Timing




I am not using this program anymore (just could not get it to run properly
on my PC) but I am using another. I also had timing problems. On my PC all
played fine but on my DVD player the timing was off.

The answer I got to this was that slideshows on a PC are played through the
video card while on CD through a DVD player they are not. So the answer is
to know the time of your photos (all photos for a slideshow) and match that
with the music.

If you have 20 photos and the time is 5 seconds per photo you have 100
seconds or 1:40 minutes of play. If your music is 2:00 minutes then you will
need to add 1 second to each photo. (20 photos times 6 seconds equals 120
seconds, which is 2 minutes).

I just got this info yesterday and have not made a CD yet but it makes
sense.

Hi
That sounds like a good thing to try and will do so on my next VCD. Sandy

VCD Timing




That is how I verified the timing as it was working in the PC slideshow to the second, but it is off about 10 seconds for the first song on the VCD.

VCD Timing




The idea is NOT to time to the PC slideshow. Time the photos to the music no
matter how it comes out with the PC. When I timed my photo-time to the
music-time only the CD played perfectly!
