    Hi Blakeloud, There are quite a few codecs to choose from! Have you checked out the Compressor tutorial? [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/compressor3101[/url] If it's just still photos I'd try out the photo jpeg codec... Cheers Rounik

    Where will the slideshow be playing? From a DV tape? A dvd? Website? The intended distribution and exhibition forms will determine the best codec(s).

    It will be on a DVD and presented to potential clients to show our interior design portfolio. The pics and titles need to be as crisp, high-res as possible.

    Keep in mind that DVDs will compress your video and images a lot and you will lose a lot of quality. It's important to start with as high-quality an image as possible so I would recommend that you start out with an uncompressed sequence and keep all the images as they are. Another choice is to import the images into the DVDSP project and create a slideshow there. You can add narration and music, control transitions between the images, control the time each is on screen, and control the display of images with menus and scripts. Much more interactivity than a video clip.
