I am lost (as always)..
A client of ours need a normal CD-ROM with images in rather high resolution made, with rather high we are talking about roughly 300 dpi 5000x5000 HDRI-Renderings, and they need this as a image slideshow and to add some suspension to the problem, some MEL scripts need to be included as well.

The CD's are already ordered and the seminar where the presentation will be held is booked, so there is no way out of it.

Here is the problem, there are several sub-folders with categories such as concept sketches, finished products, skyrenderings e.t.c so it looks like:

+ folder
- another folder
- another folder
- another folder
+ new folder
- another folder
- another folder

you get it..Now the problem with this is that :

A) there should be an 'index' file where they can select which category to show the presentation from.

B) when the presentation starts it should automatically slide through all images in that folder, then return to the main menu.

C) A customer should be able to use this without the use for external programs such as Microsoft Office installed.

So my dilemma is that I recently purchased a rather expensive program for these sort of design jobs and it works well... ... ...IF IT IS DVD AUTHORING! :( Adobe Encore CS3 does not handle rendering to CD-ROM format, only DVD/Blueray e.t.c

Could anyone provide some useful input for this?

  • A picture slideshow playable in any laptop/computer
  • A selection menu where you select which sub-folder the presentation should show.
  • Something that authors CD-ROM, not DVD
  • Some free/cheap program to convert DVD files to a useable format like .exe, . No, (S)VCD is not an option for this and yes, this is the Windows world so no linux / mac programs.

Did you ever consider just using plain HTML?

I'm thinking about something like those old CDs you sometimes got with magazines some time ago. They could be designed to start a browser in fullscreen mode using java scripts, have video playback, work in every computer and also show image slideshows.

It might not be very pretty, but it would be easy, efficient and designed to your liking as long as your browser supports it.

If you don't have any HTML editor you could always try out NVU which is free software.

F-Spot can create professional looking image galleries, like this one.

Just use "export to folder" in order to create something like that. You won't get any "index list" by doing that. However, you can create one yourself with a simple index.html file which just links to the diffrent galleries.

Both NVU and F-Spot are probably available in your distribution's package manager.

Actually this is just what we decided to do. We made a rather simple webpage in pure html, added some javascript and made Lightbox javascript to it. Presentation shown in full-screen, music playing besides it and images automatically appearing. Was a neat solution and the client was happy :)
