Setting the Blu-ray resolution, quality and fps (frames per second)


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.
