My wrinkle is that I don't want a menu AND I don't want the video to loop.
I want to create a DVD that simply starts when closing the tray on the DVD player and just ends when finished (no looping).
Is that possible with ProShow Gold 8?
To do what you're asking would require that the software can set a "First Play" action and, most importantly, set an "End Action". The end action would be either a stop or exit command.
Most dvd authoring software can do what you're looking for. I found one called DVDStyler that is free. I've never used it (I use Adobe Encore) but I saw a tutorial on youtube that looks like it's not too hard to learn. And it appears it does what you need (but I didn't test it )
You would want to output your slide show as a single video with all the effects and transitions included. Then open the authoring program to create the files for your dvd, preferably as an iso file. Then use burning software like Imgburn to create the dvd.
Here's a link to DVDStyler if you need it: https://www.dvdstyler.org/en/downloads
and a link to one of the youtube tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSn0OtXKHfU
I can try and answer any questions you may have regarding the procedures needed.
update on Sept 14:
Using PSP 7, I created a dvd iso file with no menu. I then played the file with PowerDVD 16. The dvd looped back and started playing the video again. It appears the default end action is to go back to the beginning of the file, in this case to start playing the file again.
Using my dvd authoring software, I created a dvd iso file that had STOP as the end action. When played in PowerDVD 16, the dvd stopped after playing one time.
It's only a wish-to-have. So far very pleased with the quality and flexibility of Proshow.
In a show I'm doing, I replicated film using slides in a storm sequence. I can get lightning to cascade downward creating the effect of motion. It's all in working with the rich selection of transitions.
