Anyone using Proshow Producer?
« on: February 11, 2013, 09:38:08 AM »
Having tried many photo to dvd softwares over the years I keep returning to ProShow Producer. I first started using ProShow software when there was only ProShow Gold, around 8-10 years ago, when vcd or svcd was the only options of choice. Time has moved on and now we have BluRay and I must say that when creating a photo presentation on BluRay the result is absolutely stunning. I find that music creates a whole new dimension to viewing photographs and reinforces memories of when the photo was taken.

Not being well versed in colour profiles used in photography, I wondered if a PAL_SECAM profile would be better for output to disk rather than AdobeRGB.

Please excuse my ignorance but I'm not sure I understand you correctly, Isn't PAL_SECAM an analogue television colour encoding system used in broadcast television and has been superseded by digital TV?

AdobeRGB, sRGB and ProPhoto are colour space profiles, and should have no connection to PAL_SECAM or NTSC.

I expect I am wrong as I am a noob when it comes to videos (movies) but I think you are talking about a Photo presentation (a series of stills) and I fail to make a connection between Analogue TV and colour space profiles for stills.

Pal, Secam, NTSC are still used today in the digital age and there a various versions of each, from memory 4 different NTSC and 6 PAL. Yes I am talking about a slide show on a dvd or BluRay and I have now tried outputs in Pal, AdobeRGB, sRGB and colourmatchRGB profiles and there are certainly differences between them visable to the naked eye. I also have options to output with Kodak and 4 other options, using ProShow softwares you can choose which colour profile you wish to use.
NTSC for instance is still the standard for dvd and BluRay in the USA and the reason why many people wish to have multi-region players etc.
