This is the last part of the Slideshow Zilla tutorial. In this part of the tutorial I will show you how to apply a theme to your video, add music to your video, and how to burn them and save them for your website. Let’s start with applying a theme to the video.
Click the Theme tab at the very top of the program. You will see a preview of what your video looks like so far. On the right side of the window you will see the different themes that are available. You can drop down the category box and select a different category. There are many different categories to choose from. Simply click a theme in the right panel to apply it to your video. You can also click the photos in the preview window to see that photo.
Now you can add music to your video. In the bottom right corner of the program you will see the Music field. Click the Add icon at the bottom of the field. A box will open and you will need to locate the music file that you want to add. Double click the music file to add it. You can add more than one music file. Click the Add icon again and find another file that you want to use. To delete a music file, click the file that you want to delete and click the minus icon.
Now you can click the Build button at the bottom to update your video and watch the preview. The final step is to save the video for the web or burn it to a DVD. I will show you how to do both. First, I will show you how to save it for the web.
Click the Publish tab at the top of the window. Tick the Create a Flash File Only field. Then enter the information in the bottom fields. This is not required but it helps you to know what the video is. You will need to select your output folder though. Click the dots icon and navigate to where you want the video to be saved. Then click the Publish Now button. It may take a while to finish. It all depends on how many photos you have in the video. Now you can view the video or close the box. You can go ahead and add it to your website if you want too.
To burn it to a DVD, click the Make a Gift field. Then place a DVD in your DVD Burner. Click the Start Burn button to start the burning process. The amount of time that it will take depends on the speed of your burner and how many photos you have in the video.
That’s how you create a video in Slideshow Zilla. This program is very simple to use. Once you have used it one time, you will be creating all kinds of videos and slideshows.
