slide show manual control

Post by Marla »

I have been asked to make a slide show for the Easter Sunrise Service at our church. The slides will change to coordinate with a variety or musical solos and choir solos. They will obviously be live. How can I make a slide show that I can control advancement to the next slide? And is there a way to do that with transitions between slides?

Welcome to the forums Marla, :)

With programs like VideoStudio, or Digital Studio, the slideshows are not like Power Point, where you have a Next/Previous button to advance it. They are videos. The program takes photos, and converts them to a video. So the only control would be Pausing the video, then pressing the Play button, which would have to be Paused again right away. You would have to create a DVD of your video slideshow, and use the customary buttons found on a DVD.

Hello Marla,

If you are looking for a program similar to PowerPoint, then you can try Word Perfect X5 or the Corel Home Office, which you can create slideshows similar to the PowerPoint Slideshow.

You can download the free trial of both program via
