Exported Movie to a CD or DVD
With ProSelect you can create beautiful .mp4 movies stamped/watermarked, if you wish) for sale or distribution on CD or flash drives that people can watch on their computers or TV's.
On Macs, ProSelect 2015r3 and newer uses OSX AVFoundation to create these movies at around 20x faster speeds than earlier versions of ProSelect.
On Windows, ProSelect 2017r1 and newer, uses a new movie export utility which also provide much faster movie export speeds.
Exporting a Movie
After creating and previewing your movie in ProSelect's Working with Slideshows, you just need to export it as a slideshow movie (File menu -> Export -> Slideshow Movie). You can select a number of different movie sizes, 1080HD being the highest quality possible. This will also be the largest file size.
See the ProSelect Reference manual for more details on these options.
Because the images in the movie are low resolution and all located in one self-contained file they are fairly safe from being copied. However, people with screen capture software can still take "snapshots" of them. If this is a concern, then select the option to a copyright stamp to the images while the movie is being made.
CREATING A DVD
You can take the .mp4 movie and convert it into DVD format, however, this does involve re-compressing the already compressed movie images. Coupled with the fact that most low-cost DVD production programs use domestic quality compression algorithms designed mainly for video means that your results may only be fine for proofing purposes.
There are a number of third-party programs that will do this.
