The video/music time limited seems to be 500 seconds or 8 minutes 20 seconds. Most of the songs I'm importing are longer than that. How do I extend the limit to cover a 12, 15 or 18 minute piece of music. Can I extend this maximum limit?
Hi Alan, there is no maximum length of a slideshow (in time). Your slideshow is 500 seconds because all the photos and video you added to the storyboard totalled up to this length of time. I.e. photos are shown for 8 seconds (by default) and video are the length of the video.
E.g. if your storyboard consisted of 1 video ( 3 minutes long) and 2 minutes of photos, then you would have a 5 minute slideshow.
Any background music added is automatically cropped to this length.
If you want the music to play longer, you could add more photos, adjust how long the current photos are shown for, or even select the ‘sync slideshow to background music’ option. If you watch tutorial video #3 it shows you how to do this. (time 6:50 onwards) www.photovidshow.com/tutorials.html
