5.1 - Not ready for primetime





Chris...

I gave 5.1 a try and was anxious to see the quality of the images when
transitions were used in a VCD show. Sorry dude... it's pretty awful.

I created three shows with a menu. I used a fade (what I call a dissolve)
transition as that's what I would use probably 99% of the time and have also
found to be the true test of a good program.

The menuing system worked and the shows ran with music, but... the individual
image quality was very poor and the fade transitions were just plain wierd...
it was like the image went negative in the middle of the fade. It wasn't
even close to what we've come to expect from Xatshow.

I also did another disc, this time not using the VCD transitions and sticking
with the 704x480 image resolution setting. Perhaps it was my imagination,
but even those images seemed less sharp that what I've seen with earlier
versions of Xatshow.

I've been testing lots of different slideshow making programs and no one yet
has achieved the "Holy Grail" of a VCD show with both clean images --and--
transitions. It would seem that the two are mutually exclusive. My thought
is that if poor image quality is the sacrifice one must make to have
transitions in a VCD show... forget it. I'd rather stick with sharp images
and cuts-only transitions. That having been said... I'm rooting for ya...
perhaps you can achieve both!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, but today is a gift...
...that's why they call it "the present."
