Putting Audio Into Slideshows

We have talked at length about adding that extra touch to your DVDs by adding some family pictures to the mix via slideshow in DVD Studio Pro, but what good is a slideshow without the appropriate music behnind it?

Depending on the type of slide show you are creating, you can add single or multiple pieces of music to your slideshow or assign a specific piece of audio to a single slide. This is striclty a creative decision. If you are using a series of stills along with an audio file, it would be easier to just designate multiple or just one audio file to play for the entire length of the slideshow. If creativley, your slideshow calls for each slide to have its own audio, such as voiceover, having a single audio file for each slide will be key in syncing them up correctly, but If you have already layed down an overall music file for the entire slideshow, like Chariots of Fire for instance, you will not be able to perform this function.

Adding Audio With The Slideshow Editor:

1 Within the Assets Tab, choose the audio file you wish to use.

2 Drag the audio file over to the Slideshow Editor and assign it to a slide by releasing the mouse button while over top of it.

You can also use the Slide Inspector to Specify Audio for your slideshow.

- Make active the slide that you want to add audio to, then in the Audio File Pop Up Menu, within the Slide Inpector, designate the audio for that slide.
