In this brief movie, we're going to take a look at the technical aspects of the slideshow as basically how much space it takes up on your DVD. And it's kind of interesting with slideshows because it completely depends. If you just have a simple, straight slideshow, no transition, no effects, then the effects on bit budgeting is negligible. Basically photos, the photos in the slideshow take a very little room on a DVD. So if you have a full length high- quality movie and you want to smush a slideshow in there, it's not really going to take that much effort if you don't have any effects or transitions.
However, if you have transitions between clips, so you had a cross dissolve or something like that going from this clip to this clip, basically what that's going to do is it's going to force Encore to have to render a movie between these two and that will start adding to your file size a little bit. Let's say for example this image was on for 5 seconds and then had 2 second transition to this movie, which was on for another 5 seconds. Basically the 2 second transition between them would have to be rendered as a movie, but the other 5 seconds of these two slides going to remain as really low file size images. However, if you add Random Pan and Zoom to your slideshow, it will essentially as far as bit budgeting goes, turn it into a movie.
So if you have a slideshow that's 10 minutes long and you add Random Pan and Zoom to it, it's basically going to be like you're adding a 10 minute movie into your DVD. So make sure when you're planning out your DVDs, you also realize what kind of slideshow you are going to have with your DVD. So again, just a recap, regular slideshows without any effects or transitions, it's basically treated like a series of images, very, very small file size. Add transitions and basically it's a same thing except that where the transitions are Encore will have to make movies and that will start adding to your file size a little bit. And again, if you have Random Pan and Zoom selected, it's going to turn the entire slideshow into a video.
So realize these sort of details and plan your DVDs accordingly.
