Let's say you had a presentation to give and you decide to use Encore to burn a DVD to guide you as you are presenting, to be your teaching tool, and you have a slideshow here. And let's say you have these different slides of a model presenting the progress of certain locales of your company, namely Dallas, London and Denver. So she is kind of going through the motions here. And what we might want to do is talk about the first slide and talk about, okay. Well, this is how London and Dallas are doing.
And now let's move on to talk about these stats, and now let's move on to talk about those stats. And you may want to pause for a question. And so the way we've done things in the past with slideshows probably wouldn't work too much, because we might have slide duration, but the slide duration is even like 20 seconds long, people might have questions and so you might not want to move on just yet. So what you can do is select a slideshow and when you have the Slideshow Properties in the Properties panel, you can check this option, which is Manual Advance. And what this allows you to do is to control when you go to the next slide.
It basically makes slide duration invalid. So as you are presenting that, the way that you would go from slide to slide is by using the right arrows or the next button on your DVD remote. Now, I didn't mention this feature back when we were talking about slideshows, because most of time you don't want to do that to viewers, because that's kind of torturous to have to do that for all these different slides. But if you are presenting something on a DVD, then the ability to control when you go from slide to slide is very helpful, indeed.
