LR slideshow plug-in
« on: September 28, 2013, 08:46:54 PM »

I'm looking for a plug-in that can expand LR's slideshow capabilities. I'd like to be able to create a finished slideshow within LR that customers can run independently of LR. Maybe even on a TV. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean.  The slideshows it produces are just video files, they are not in any way dependent on any particular program.  Also, playing on a TV (dvd/bluray) is a completely different output file.

I would like more design options than the LR basic slideshow has. I remember when the LR slideshow could not be exported. It only ran inside LR. Unless I was wrong or my memory is faulty. Which is all possible. :D

Yep - faulty :)  We all want a better module, but it's just a simple almost useless thing...use a dedicated slideshow program for anything more.

I have never been tempted to use the Slideshow module of Lightroom.

Personally I use ProShow Gold for slide shows (other software is available) and it is a very simple matter to create a Lightroom collection for the images desired for a particular slideshow and export them for use in PSG.

I just find it particularly easy to add the music and speech commentary when using PSG.
