Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: Adding a song to an Impress presentation
Date: Thursday, 6 October, 2011, 1:20

Hey, thanks anyway. I've used Power Point quite a bit in the past, and in actuality Impress
has a ways to go to get "up to par". Now if I can figure out how to make it transition from
one song to another - which I would think should be easier than trying to figure out how to
get the slides into a video. Although, I think I've seen somewhere where that was done.
I also know that some PP presentations I get sent sometimes don't play the audio/song that I
know is supposed to be there. So there is some obvious differences.

 Hi Roxy,

I've used Impress and Power Point very, very little. I'm sorry I
couldn't be of better help here. Good Luck!!!!!!!

I guess if I had pictures of each slide that would probably be the way I go, but they are
just simple slides I've done within Impress. They all use the same base slide with the
typed in one the slides.
I did just find some help within Impress that, I think, is what I'm looking to do. Now I
just have to go back and "re-time" each slide, as some where along the way I must have
inadvertently hit the "Apply to All Slides" button on a 4 second slide. So, we live and
learn. I hope I don't do that again.

   Hi Roxy,

I'm 95% Linux (Ubuntu), but part of the 5% left in windows is my video
editing program, which is Ulead. Te current version is called Corel
Video Studio I believe. Instead of capturing video to edit, I can just
put in pictures from my hard drive. The reason I still do this in
Windows is that I have about 300 songs I've purchased over the years
from so I can legally use it on the Internet, and it is
very easy to integrate the songs into the video. Here is a link for the
2011 Ag Progress Days Slide Show so you can see what it looks like doing
it this way:
This will help you know whether this method would work for you. You
could use larger pictures than I did. I wanted this to work for people
on slow connections also.

This slide presentation will probably be about 100 slides long when I finish it - though
will never really be finished. It is a listing, if you will, of the deceased alumni from
small high school where I graduated. It currently starts with the class of 1919 and runs
the present. In most cases one slide contains each class, though there are some classes
cover 2 pages. I have 3 or 4 songs I'd like to use while the presentation is running -
starting when the previous completes. And then starting back with the first one again.
not sure how that would transfer over into a video program.

Is there any way to add a song to the 2nd or 3rd slide of a presentation and
make it play through the rest of the presentation? Or when it gets through
to start playing another song until it gets through? And so on.

Hi Roxy,

I don't know the answer to your question with respect to Impress. But
something I have done is to make slide shows in my video editing program
by using pictures instead of actual video, and then adding narration and
background music. It worked quite well.
