Here's a (free) idea. Use Wings Platinum 4 Basic, the free version of Wings to create/sync your stills + video + music AND send to the distribution amp for the 5 projectors/5 screens.

Although Wings Basic will only allow 1 Track each of Video, Picture and Audio, you can still fade out/fade in between timeline objects on the same track using the ramp band, or between picture track and video track. This way, you can make changes weekly as you wish.

For fullscreen Presentation, use a dual-head graphics card PC -
1. The Primary monitor will contain your Wings timeline;
2. Drag the Preview Screen Window to the second monitor, and double-click to make it 'fill' the monitor - depends on your screen format ration, etc.
2. F5 to present in fullscreen on that second monitor.
3. Connect that monitor's output or the second output from the graphics card to your distribution amp to feed the 5 projectors.

And it's all for free. Register the Basic version with AvStumpfl in order to use more than 15 times.


Edit: Forget it. I forgot the fact that the Basic version does not allow Timeline Marker tracks for you to loop the timeline. For this you will need the Starter (paid) version.

However, you can still use the free Basic version to create a video file (with music) for use in other non-timeline based applications.
