This takes you directly to volume 6. Click on "sets" to see the earlier volumes.
For anyone who wants to experiment with the samples linked above in their home theater, these samples can be saved to your computer in "large" setting, which is about half the resolution of the actual slide files you've receive from me on disc. Just click on a slide. It will display a bit larger. Look for "All sizes" button on top left of slide. It will re-display with a download button for "large size".NEW!!!

Now, you're asking.... what is this bonus video content? Well, I've created some short (15 to 30 seconds each) "bumpers" that you can use to introduce Terminator and Star Trek themed trivia segments. Folks seemed to like the James Bond, Indiana Jones, Disney, Star Wars and Harry Potter clips that I've made for volume 5, so here's a couple of more.
They're not award-winning or anything, but are a fun thing that I tried... just to see what my meager computer/video skills could do. I'm sure those of you with the DVD sets of these movie series will recognize some of the backgrounds, etc. I scavenged desktop wallpaper pix, dvd menu screenshot grabs, etc. Whatever I thought could be usable...
Finally, a handful of countdown video clips...

A seperate file (encompassing all volumes) contains over 35 slides for Coke, popcorn, candy, trash, cell phones, etc. This makes for a total of over 1365 slide jpegs.The minimum Paypal payment is $7.00. That covers the DVD with all six volumes on it, disc case, padded mailing envelope, postage and Paypal's % cut of the payment.
If interested, Paypal to: sgood3 (at) comcast (dot) net <--I think you can figure out how to make this a valid email address.
As always, tips are certainly appreciated, but by no means necessary.
The above amount will work for U.S. and Canada. For anyone across a large body of water, PM me and we'll figure out what it will cost to get a disc to you.
I'm still only sharing these by snail mail on a disc. No downloading option.
(My son's a GA Tech computer science major and thinks this is quaint.) And once you've received a disc, please don't upload them for redistribution elsewhere
. I'd like to keep them here in the AVS community.
PM with questions and please continue using this thread to post with suggestions on programs to use for making and using these slides, etc. The previous threads are also a wealth of information on how to make great pre-show intros. The tips and tricks you share with fellow members are what makes this forum a terrific community to participate in, and why I enjoy being here.
Thanks for your continued interest!
P.S. This is not designed to be a playable disc. It is a data disc with raw jpeg picture files on it. Volumes 5 & 6 have short Windows Media Audio/Video file (.wmv) files, too.
You are supposed to use your computer and video editing or slideshow creation software to create and author a pre-show slide presentation. Then you burn you completed project to DVD and play that in your DVD player.
There are DVD players that can display jpeg photos and video files from a data disc. However, the files as burned on the disc I provide are not arranged in a manner that is very entertaining to watch.
Again, this is just a data disc, not a finsihed pre-show presentation.
If you are unsure what steps to take, please read through this thread, as well as the previous threads regarding Vol. 2, 3, 4 and 5 (links for which are posted above). Those threads are a wealth of information regarding what programs AVS members have used to create slideshows, what background music they've included, programs they use to burn the finished project to DVD, etc.
