Vegas Movie Studio HD: Making Slideshows

Vegas Movie Studio HD provides an easy and quick way to create stunning slideshows. Here are the steps which will quickly guide you through the process.

Step 1: Importing the Photos to the Media Pool

To import the photos for the slide show, click on File on the top menu bar and select Import, and then click on Media. This will open up the Import window, from where you can select the group of photos you want. All these files will now be seen in the Media Pool panel.

Step 2: Adjusting the Settings of the Slide Show

Click on Options on the top menu bar and select Preferences. In the Preferences window, click on the Editing tab, and here you will see many controls for your slide show. Make sure the option "Automatically overlap multiple selected media when added" is checked. To select the transition time for each photo, go to "Cut-to-overlap" in the same tab, and next to "Amount," you can specify the seconds you want the image to stay. Click OK and you will see the resultant lines on the Timeline.

Step 3: Dragging the Imported Photos onto the Timeline

Now from the Media Pool panel, drag all your photos on to the Timeline. You will find the automatic transition which you have just selected between each of the photos. Clicking on the Play button under the Timeline, you can start watching the slide show in the Preview panel.

Step 4: Adding Music

To play music along with your slide show, follow Step 1 to import a music file. Then, drag the file onto the Timeline and click Play. Now you will have music playing along with the transition of photos.
