    try using nero 5.5, there's create VCD option and then dump all your images or .jpg inside.

    There's a time setting element where you do a setting of the time betw the images to be shown.

    I've tried Nero 5582 but was disappointed with its ability to dump a max of only 99 photos. It will only appear as a Menu item on your VCD - not one of those slide show with background MP3 music.

    Somebody says WinonCD can do the job but has not tried it.

    Question

    I had tried to use Ulead PictureShow to create the VCD, as it has slideshow options and can play background music too. When playing the disc in my PC with the help of powerplayer software, the result was great. But, when playing in my commerical VCD and DVD player, the pictures scroll very fast and the background music was even worse until I have to turn off the volume. So, can anyone advise on this problem?? Thanks.

    You need to go to Ulead PictureShow website and download the patch and update your copy, after that the scrolling will be ok and the sound as well. Ulead PictureShow was great!

    I recommend PictureToTV (http://www.picturetotv.com). I tried both PictureToTV and ULead Pictureshow, and I found PictureToTV to be better.

    Have you ever try the Pinnacle Systems Studio Pro Version 8. This is a very powerful tool for editing video or still pictures into DVD or VCD. When used with its patented Hollywood FX u will get tons of transition effects for each of your frames. Try it....you won't regret....Ulead & the others fade in comparison.

    But one note, the progranm is memory hungry.....probably need min Pentium 4 & 256 Mb ram to work properly. If not, more often than not, sure hang!

    tried the picturetotv software. can't seem to view any pics on the tv, instead got a blank screen. The music that I used came out very 'choppy'. Don't know is it becos I used a cd-rw instead of a cd-r.

    Anyone? Please help...

    i had tried both picturetotv n ulead pictureshow.

    PicturetoTv is gd cos of its transition effect. But picture does not turn out nice on TV (flicker a lot).

    Ulead Pictureshow look much better and clearer on Tv, but no transition effect.

    for me, i vote for Ulead.

    during the Sitex, I was 1 booth doing Video Editing and 1 girl was using a software call Video Factory. Seem very powerful. and lots of transition effects. But don't know if need to buy those extra plug-in or not. She shown a demo on a wedding photos, Sound were great and the transition not only just flip here and there.

    This is their web Site U can check it out, got other products also:

    These softwares that offer transistion effects would encode images into the mpeg stream. That is, static pictures are compressed as video!

    Not very good for image quality, especially since vcd 2.0 spec allows for digital still images to be stored.

    I still recommend VCDEasy. Very good.
