first i create the jpeg in a 1080x1920 pixel frame & save that file. then open that file within a new 1080x1440 frame. since the top-to-bottom height is the same, i squish the pic left and right to fit in the 4x3 frame, then re-save. make sense?

Can someome please give a quick run-down on how to take these slides (THANK YOU STEVEN) and put them into something I can play on DVD player? I would also like to add some DTS/DOLBY stuff in there as well.

Thanks

Just wanted to post my sincere thank you to Steven.

I have version's 1, 2 & 3. combined with

pre-movie manager to play the slides, (stand alone version)

tech talker (professional voice over to announce 5 minute warning, movie is about to begin etc...)

folder of movie soundtrack's for the backround music (superman, star-wars, etc...)

hidef trailer's & my custom theater intro makes the experience perfect - actually better than the theater.

Where can we find this?

That tech talker sounds cool. I hope he chimes in with info on how to get it.

A member PM'ed me about how to use my slides in an HTPC set up with the various programs available. Since I don't use an HTPC, I can't really offer him any help. I am hoping one of your who has knowledge with the Pre-Movie Manager program can jump in with some answers. Here's the problem:

When I start pMM from with in MyMovies (in MCE 2005 setup), the pMM window (slideshow) windows opens behind the MCE window. You know how to get around this problem?

Finally (and I hope he's okay with me mentioning this), a member who doesn't use Paypal and wanted to send payment by snail mail, made an even more interesting offer to pass along to me a spindle of CD-Rs that he got a good deal on. I'm a big fan of bartering, so I took him up on his offer. A stack of shiny blank discs will be in my mail soon...and he'll get Vol. 1, 2 & 3 of the slides. This forum is a great place to pass the time because of generous members like this!

Want to post my thanks to Steve as well. The jpegs are very professional looking and greatly complements any home theater setup. Thanks a lot!

Techtalker, the professional home theater voiceover intro's can be found at:

http://www.cinemaronline.com/techtalker.html

My video intro was done by these guys:

http://www.digitalforge.com/

It's in 1920 x 1080p / Divx format, which actually makes it look superior to most of the movies we watch :>


I was thinking about writing a "how to" for using pre-movie manager as it's not very intuitive. Especially for adding the voice over's and multiple directories of your coca-cola jpeg's.

An interested AVSer, Aubrey Whitley, emailed me this question, but my reply keeps getting bounced back and is not deliverable. I hope you guys don't mind me answering here in the thread; I'm not sure how else he will see it otherwise...
QUESTION:
One question, if I slap this into my jpeg compatible DVD player and display it on a 4:3 TV, will it come out letter boxed?


First, thanks for your interest! Now for your answer: I wouldn't slap this CD-R into your jpeg playback capable DVD player, mainly because each theme set of slides "Trivia", "Movie Moments" ect., is in its own folder, so you wouldn't get a real varied playback experience (unless you want 50 trivia questions, one right after the other, with no other themed slides breaking them up). So, I'm really only providing a data disc; it's up to you to use the jpegs to create your own pre-show intro...the length you want, with the slides you like, and maybe with some background music of your choosing.

As for how they display: if you did just slap the disc I'm sending you into your player, your 4X3 screen would be filled completely with a vertically stretched image, i.e. the round film reel logo would appear oval instead of round. So, whatever video editing software you decide to use to create your pre-show intro needs to be set to output an final MPEG video file that contains a 16x9 flag in it that a DVD player will recognize and therefore know how to display the image. I'm sorry if I can't offer more guidance in this particular matter: I really conceived these slides to display on 16x9 sets and created the artwork accordingly. And since there are many video editing programs out there, each hopefully will have a menu choice that allows you to use these jpeg files in a way that the final project results in jpegs displayed in the proper manner on your screen. If you have specific issues, please feel free to post your question in the AVS thread about these slides: someone I'm sure has encountered a similar problem and will offer a solution. I've been offering the volumes of these slides for a couple of years now, and clever AVSers have used my jpegs in many ways....

Good luck!
Steven

Just wanted to thank steve, my cd has now arrived, only 6 days to Scotland.


CHeers mate, the slides are fantastic!
post #43 of 288
Steven, thanks for making these available... I just PayPal'd ya!

Steven
I'm Aubrey Whitley. I'm glad you got my Paypal. I'll send you a PM with my email address again. Plus, I'll check my email address in Paypal.

Thanks for answering my question. No problem with not helping with the video editing software. I was just curious if at least take a peek at slides. It sounds like maybe but they will not be pretty.

DOH!

Attention Martin Block and Don Kincaid:

I am officially losing it; I haven't done this before...
Somehow, your Coke slides discs, packed in their mailing envelopes, got put in the stack of eBay items that have been sold, but are waiting for payment to arrive. So, I have now noticed my mistake and both will go out USPS First Class tomorrow monring. My apologies for the goof.

Thanks for your understanding.

A shameless bump....but with a purpose.

Many of the emails I've received the past few weeks were from folks interested in getting a disc, but having no idea how to go about it. Is there something else that should be added to the first post that would make things more clear? Method of payment, minimum amount to cover packaging & postage, email to use for Paypal or questions--all that is posted.

Suggestions?
post #47 of 288
Just forwarded payment via paypal. Thanks again Steven, looking forward to seeing what you've done this time around. Todd
post #48 of 288

Paypay sent.

I missed Vol 2 so it will be great to all three on one Cd.

Thanks

Just received the disk. Thanks for the effort !!

Quick question for those of you who have made you intro disks. What music are you guys using while running these slides. And if it is a instrumental type disk what is your source for the music? Thanks in advance.

Joel

Here are some pretty neat wav files that you can use to count down to your show.

Movie Sounds
I use them in mine. My favorite is the " And Now. On With The Show!".

Just a heads up:

I will be on a cruise from Oct. 9th - 16, so I won't be mailing anything out that week, obviously. Anyone who Paypals (wow--that's a verb?) me by Saturday morning will get a disc put in Saturday's mail. Otherwise, I'll get to them on the 17th.

Simeon-- A couple of months ago, I had a Visa payment take 19 days to go from Tennessee to Kentucky (two states that share a border) and had to argue with Visa to refund a late payment fee they tacked on...

so 3 days across the pond is great. I wish my local mail was that quick sometimes.
