As at-one-go intermediate, PowerPoint to video conversion apps have brought great ease to the creation of Veteran video slideshow. In Frank's previous post, there is a mentioning of veteran video production with PowerPoint. Video slideshow is one of the most IN media online to celebrate the honorable Veteran Day. If you tend to take a TV media, to show your respect to the admirable old soldiers, head on with this post. It lays an emphasis on simple production of a Veteran DVD slideshow that is tailored to TV playback with a DVD player.
Like the video slideshow, your Veteran DVD is a 2-step process.
Prerequisites for Veterans Day DVD Production: MS PowerPoint / Blank DVD discs / PowerPoint to DVD Burner
And to play your veteran PowerPoint DVD, you may also need these appliances: DVD player / Television / Projector
Everything is ready? OK, let's experiment the tour of a new veteran DVD slideshow.
Phase 1 Build a Veteran photo album in MS PowerPoint.
A veteran DVD slideshow is first a PowerPoint photo album. To achieve the best frame effect, you should choose high-quality photos or pictures for the veteran PowerPoint. Next, import the selected veteran photos with the Photo Album feature in MS PowerPoint. # To edit the veteran photo album, use Edit Photo Album which allows you to add in a text noted with a date or place for each photo. # To make it a singing slideshow, add in a song as mood music to play across all the slides. # To give the veteran DVD an animated flavor, take advantage of funny animations and transitions. # To ensure its stability and visibility, don't forget to rehearse the veteran slideshow again and again.
As PowerPoint is not a compatible format with DVD players, the veteran slideshow won't work on your TV unless it is burned to DVD. It is a no brainer to burn PowerPoint to DVD with Moyea's professional PPT to DVD Burner. See the following how-to: # 1. Download and install the PowerPoint to DVD converter. Insert the blank DVD you've prepared. Click Import to add in the veteran presentation ready for conversion. # 2. Under the Output Options, Select Standard DVD or High Definition DVD as the exported format of your veteran presentation. You can pick a DVD menu frame, insert a song or your own narration, and add a logo as watermark for the final DVD. # 3. From the Burn tab, click the Start button to convert your veteran presentation onto the DVD.
The burning process will take a minute or two. You can take a sip of coffee. When it is completed, take out the disc and hook to your DVD player for a test play. Eventually, invite your family and friends to your TV, and watch the story of heroic veterans like a movie!
