How to Create Slideshow Video and Transfer to iPad
"Hi, I am using a Mac and I have the DVD Photo Slideshow Professional. I have made a slide show which works well on the TV and would like to transfer it to my iPad so that I can show it. Is there a way for me to do that."
This customer wondered how he could create a slide show movie for playing on his iPad using DVD Photo Slideshow. Actually it can be easily done with this slideshow maker.
First, you just add your favorite photos and one or several songs to the project to generate a slide show. Then you can personalize the slideshow with transitions, theme, text, speech bubbles, Pan and Zoom effects, etc. When the slideshow is all right, encode it into a video file. And then you can transfer the generated video file to your iPad with the sync of iTunes.
Now let me show you the whole process.
1. Download and install DVD Photo Slideshow onto your Mac
DVD Photo Slideshow works with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.9 Mavericks. Below is the download link:
2. Add photos and music
In the Images tab, you will be able to browse all the photos in your Mac. You can drag photos from iPhoto library or other folders in your Mac hard drive to the timeline.
Switch to the Music tab, and you will be able to add music from GarageBand or iTunes library to the timeline. You can load songs from other folders in your Mac hard drive as well.
3. Set theme and transition
Click the Theme tab, and you can select a theme for your slideshow. You can also click the Customize button and select a background image for the theme.
By default, the transition effects will be applied randomly and marked as dice icons. You can click the dice icon and select the transition effect you like. You can also choose to apply the transition to all photos.
4. Encode slideshow into MP4 video
Click menu DVD Photo Slideshow Professional -> Preferences... to go to the Options window. There you can specify the path and format (MP4 or MOV) for the output file.
To transfer the slideshow video to iPad, simply choose MP4 as the output format.
Then click menu Share and choose Encode to Movie.
In the Share Video window, you can write title and description and set Video Size (Medium - 360, Large - 540p, HD - 720p or HD - 1080p) for the output video.
5. Transfer slideshow video to iPad
When the encoding is done, you can get the output slideshow video in the output folder specified in Step 4. Then connect your iPad with your Mac via a USB cable, launch iTunes, add the slideshow video file to the library and get it transferred to the iPad.
To create slideshow video for playing on iPad, there is a even easier and more direct way. That is, download and install the iPad app named Photo Slideshow Director HD Pro. This app lets you use your iPad to organize your digital photos from Camera Roll, Instagram, Dropbox, Microsoft SkyDrive, Picasa web albums, Facebook photo albums, Flickr photo sets and create eye-catching slideshow in minutes. You can easily turn the photos into dynamic slideshow movie with background music, transitions, theme, effects, texts, subtitles, and more. Photo Slideshow Director HD Pro is available on the iTunes App Store.comments powered by Disqus
