Blu-ray resolution, quality and fps (frames per
When authoring a Blu-ray disk, you
have the option to change the output resolution, picture quality
and frames per second (fps).
By default PhotoVidShow will author
a Blu-ray disk at full 1080p with a high picture quality. This will
usually be the best option and will typically match the settings
seen on a brought Blu-ray movie disk.
Sometimes with slideshows that
contains a lot of fast movement, it may be preferable to have the
slideshow at a lower resolution (720p) which then allows you to
have a higher frame rate. This makes the slideshow appear more
visually smoother on the screen. For PAL regions select 50fps and
for NTSC regions select 59.94, although either setting will usually
work fine. Full 1080p movies are only allowed to have a maximum
frame rate of 24fps for Blu-ray.
The higher the quality setting the
more space is required on the disk. For Blu-ray this is not usually
a problem but as the Blu-ray disk is authored on the hard-drive
first before burning, it may be sometimes preferable to have a
lower quality to reduce space needed on the hard-drive.
PhotoVidShow also includes other
frame rates like 23.976. This option would typically be used if
your slideshow just consisted of one video which was recorded at
this frame rate.
