Meh comment below is nonsense, DVDSlideshowGUI is better I think. I am having a few problems with it atm, but I'm sure tin2tin will help me out. Foto2avi looks sweet, but has no "match slideshow to audio duration" facility which will automatically adjust all the photo & transition durations to fit the length of the audio (which DVDSlideshowGUI DOES).

One other thing, to ask questions in Foto2avi forum, you must register & get a manual authorization from the developer (which is pretty quick, mind you), but it's not automatic. And BE WARNED, if there's any "hate" words in your email address, you will be rejected. I think this sort of thing is just plain silly. You will get a terse personal reply that "we do not condone hate". Me thinks they are christian developers. That is absolutely FINE with me - so long as they do not judge people (ie users of their software). Anyway, have deleted their software, sorry to say, and will perservere with DVDSlideshowGUI, which I sincerely believe is the BEST out there. PLUS, tin2tin is extremely helpful and NON-JUDGMENTAL. SO thank you, tin2tin. And goodbye, Foto2avi!

Review by chowmein on Jul 1, 2012 Version: 4.1 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 4/10

Of all the various tools I have tried for creating photo DVDs this one seems to be the most complete. DVD Slideshow GUI does not even compare. The thumbnails load very quickly (especially compared to every other tool I looked at). This tool allows using multiple sound files instead of one big sound file which must be created with some other tool. Plenty of transitions and generally a clean interface. There are still a few areas which need to be polished. The ffmpeg tool it uses crashes frequently and there is something wrong with the shutter transition. At the very least this tool will create a temp.avs script with all the transitions, image files, sound files, etc. in it which can then be loaded into VirtualDub and used to generate the video (I use this method when ffmpeg continues to crash). Get the shutter transition and ffmpeg problems fixed and this tool will be awesome.
