08 June 2012 - 09:43 PMAnniversary Presentation First Year
I finally worked out Youtube. I also had trouble getting the final presentation in quicktime to play smoothly and had to download another program " Snapz Pro X" which did the job of converting the keynote presentation into a single quicktime file. Phew. I also made a presesntation of my Parent's first year of marriage. This one I did in just a few hours, much simpler without video. For the anniversary presentation I used presentation 1-2-3 Blue Christmas, Folly and Vista Linda and It's Christmas. Music is "Morning Has Broken "by Cat Stevens.
It was a big learning curve for me to get everything to work the way I wanted it too, I hope it helps others. I think video clips from cameras/camcorders will be much easier to use, but this project was a labor of love and was well worth it. My aunt has 40+ years worth of video I now know how to put onto DVD so our family can all enjoy these treasures.
P.S. I am hidden in the last two slides of the First Year presentation......
27 May 2012 - 08:57 PMThanks for all your help. I ordered iDVD from Amazon, it worked great to make a DVD. My parents and family loved the slide show I made.
One thing I did which was a little more complicated was to have VHS tapes of family movies transferred to DVD. When I got the DVD, the files were VOB type, and were not compatible with iMovie or Keynote. After some research, I found DVDxDV, available on Apple Apps store. This program allows you to preview VOB video, select segments you would like then import into iMovie. I was able to edit the video in iMovie then save it as a quicktime file. Then, it was easy to add video clips to keynote as in the other presentation 1-2-3 tutorials, and burn onto DVD with iDVD. When I ordered iDVD, there was a little sticker on the package that said to change the macbook time/date to 2011 before uploading iLife '11, the last version with iDVD on it. I had no problems installing software, I don't know if this is necessary but seemed to work fine.
It was a bit of a learning curve, but once I got the proper apps, worked great. This way, I was able to add video of my parent's wedding (originally on super 8 no less!) to the presentation. It had been decades since they had seen it, and a first for the rest of our family. Thanks for the great idea!
Of note, I used the Fade to Gray products from scrap girls, and the music is the "Wedding Song" from Noel Paul Stookey.
Also, I can't figure out security settings to my liking on Youtube, so I'm not ready to share, unless there is some other way, I'll work on this a bit more.
21 May 2012 - 11:03 PMThanks for the suggestions. I did try Burn, it didn't really work that well, so I went on Amazon and ordered iLife 11 with iDVD. That should work.
