software to add still pictures to DVD?

Postby Coyote on Thu Jul 29, 2004 11:59 pm

Is there any software that will add still pictures to DVD?
I don't want them output in a slideshow in MPEG2 format, which is what most software like Nero Vision Express does. I want the original picture (jpeg) displayed and be able to flip through the pictures with my remote.

I just want to make a folder on the DVD and add it to the main menu, that allows any DVD player, access to view these pictures.

VCD/DVD slideshows use MPEG. What you need is a DVD player that can view JPEG pictures directly. That way, you just burn your JPEGs as standard data CD.

Yes, but I have several DVD movies I bought, which have some extra content on them. These pictures are shown as stills, and you can use your remote to flip through them.

If Hollywood can add still images to a DVD to flip through, how come there are no consumer products that do the same?

They're MPEG/vob too, not JPEGs. If you put the DVD in your computer, you won't find any JPEG files. The remote thing depends on how you author the slideshow VCD/DVD. You can set it up for auto slideshow every x seconds, or each pictures loop infinitely until you press the remote. Nero itself can do this. Create a new VCD template, drag-n-drop all your JPEGs, and set the pause to infinite. If you want to make menus, etc, then you'll need Nero Vision Express to author a more complex DVD.
