Just spent the weekend with Encore, I have had the software for some time but no real need to use it until now. Got most of what I needed but some questions came up. First, motion background not looping, I set it up in the properties to loop but no luck. Re-rendered the motion menu and still not working. The book (Adobe) said that it might not loop until you create the DVD! seems weird. Question 2 is the resolution of images in a slideshow. I have used "Memories on TV" to create slideshows (I know... but it works great for me) anyway, this program does not change the resolution if I create a slideshow DVD. In other words if I have a low resolution file/image, it does not expand it to full size, it just leaves it alone and shows it smaller on the screen, but Encore blows everything up, how can I keep the images from doing this? Thanks for a great forum, I had a lot of questions last weekend and was always able to search here and get great answers.
