PhotoStory 3: Multiple stories per DVD

Jim & Chris;

I have purchased the add-on to save PhotoStories to a DVD and have used it many times.  My question is: Can I save several projects/slide shows to the same DVD?  I have recently returned from a Panama Canal Cruise and put several daily slide shows on my blog <bmforsberg.blogspot.com>.  Ranther than making a DVD for each day, I would like to know if there is a way to put all or at least several on one DVD with a selection of a daily menu?  The “Help” for PhotoStory says saving a project to DVD  will delete anything on the DVD.  Any suggestions?

You may need another DVD authoring program to do multiple shows on one dvd with chapters.

Movie Maker for Vista and Windows 7 should work, too.

Hey Brent,

Here's an article, with video, that may help.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

I watched your video and it helped immensly.  I put a blank disc in, selected Burn Disc with Movie Maker, selected “Add”, and then choose two of the PhotoStory 3 slideshows that I had already rendered to the computer.  As you said in the video, it takes awhile, but in the end there were two PhotoStory slideshows with my transitions and music.  I chose the “Band Width” for the menu option and could select either story I wanted.  And after checking the space available on the disc, there was still a lot more room for more stories.  So for my Panama Canal daily slideshow log, I should be able to put several days worth on a single disc.

 

So again, thank you Jim and Chris!  Hope to see you in another RV Rally in Oregon!
