I searched this forum and most of what I found was from a couple of years ago -- so I am hoping there has been an enhancement or people have come up with a good workaround. The one I saw involved having a number of programs that I don't own.
I hope this is the right forum for this post!
My understanding is that if you create a DVD output, ProShow creates a dvd menu with 1 chapter entry.
If you make multiple shows (ie one for each "chapter") and include those shows on the menu, you will achieve the desired result.
Welcome the the group, hopefully you'll find the answers to most/all of your questions. Creating chapters for a single show is not possible as far as I know. Unless you split a show in two or more individual shows and add/create them to a "project" then you will have your menu chapters. "Projects" is proshows way of working with multiple shows or one show split up to resemble individual shows. Then for each show ina "project" you will be able to create a chapter for them.
So just split your show up and save them as individual shows and add them to a project.
Hope this helps
PS: Don't give up on the software it is pretty good.
I haven't read about projects yet, however, one thing that came up in my search on this forum was talking about splitting up the slideshow. I have immediate concerns about the music -- seems to me that will be tricky, but the post also said it didn't play through the slideshows without pausing in-between if the user clicked on "play all". Perhaps if it was a project it would not have done that?
The "Play All" is generally used for Project with mutiple shows and chapters where you can click on each chapter to play that show or part of the show or click "Play All" to play all the chapters or shows. When using just one show (no project or chapters) it makes sense to me to edit the "Play All" to just "Play" under menu captions.
As far as splitting a show and managing the music accordingly - Yes it can be tricky - many here use third party music editors but Producer does have its own where you can edit, fade etc... or maybe use shorter multiple tracks / with Producer you have the freedom to create to your imagination/creativety.
So, now I am to work on how to get the best resolution, I know it is through the executable so having it included seems the way to go, but my adjustments to the default seemed to make things worse. More fiddling is obviously needed!
