Building Digital Lifestyle Slideshows 275 Creating a Soundtrack to the iDVD Slideshow As you learned in Chapter 5, iDVD enables you to add a soundtrack to a slideshow by choosing an audio file that you want to use as a soundtrack. You can add a single music track as a soundtrack, or you can use the techniques described in Chapter 10 to create a more complex soundtrack for the slideshow. Creating a Slideshow in iDVD Creating a slideshow in iDVD is covered in detail in Chapter 5, but a summary of the steps follows. Create a Slideshow in iDVD 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Create a new iDVD project or open an existing one. Add a slideshow button to the project. Double-click the slideshow button to open the iDVD slideshow mode. Drag the images for the slideshow onto the iDVD window in the order in which you want them to appear. Add a soundtrack to the slideshow. Choose the duration of the slideshow--the best duration is to simply have the slideshow match the duration of your soundtrack. Design the slideshow's button. Preview the slideshow using iDVD's preview feature. When the project is complete, burn the DVD.
