ProShow Gold and Producer make burning your show to disc a breeze. With the built-in DVD and Blu-ray publishing options in ProShow you can create your show, and publish your show directly from the program without any additional software. For a general walk-through on publishing a DVD or Blu-ray in ProShow continue reading below.
Unfortunately, ProShow cannot prevent someone from copying your CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs that you output. You can however include some protection that will make it difficult for someone to playback the show when the disc is inserted into their computer and you included the Executable on the disc.
To add multiple shows to your output first you need to select an output format that supports multiple shows like Blu-ray, DVD, EXE, Web Shows and or Autorun CD. Then click on the ‘Shows’ tab and add your additional shows by pressing the (+) add button on the top left-hand side of the show list.
If you are trying to output your slide show to a DVD and it doesn’t fit. Try cutting down on total show duration. You can shorten your slide or transition time or remove slides to cut down on time. The idea is to make sure the show you are working with doesn’t exceed 1 hr in duration (if using DVD SP) and the file size of the DVD doesn’t exceed the 4.7 gb limitation set by the DVD media.
Your drive is either not supported in ProShow, you are running an older burn library and need to update to the latest version of the burn library in ProShow or you have other burning programs installed that are preventing ProShow from seeing your drive.
The DVD format is not a high definition format, with a resolution limited to 720×480 (NTSC), 720×576 (PAL) pixels, anything outputted to this format is going to be of lower quality than the resolution of the original content used to create the show.
Displaying a DVD on any display that has a pixel resolution higher than 720×480 will show some signs of softness or blurring when watching the show.
ProShow has the ability to burn discs directly from the software. However, in some cases you may want to output an ISO image file and create your disc with another app. Here’s how.
