Help+

Here you will find info and help videos about DSS-4K, which should primarily give you an overview.
You can look up the relevant functions at any time in the program via 'F1' in the integrated help!
We can also discuss possible problems in a LIVE-CHAT !

The quality of the online videos is unfortunately significantly below the original quality!

Creation of a new slideshow:
In this example, all photos , videos and also the background music are directly in a folder. This is the easiest and fastest way to create a slideshow.
If, on the other hand, the folder is empty or all files are in subfolders, only an empty slideshow will be created at first. You can then add the files later in the storyboard!
PLAY
PLAY

DSS-4K provides excellent interactivity when playing a slideshow. There is no hard break during pauses, as the background music continues to play at a reduced volume.
If needed, you can navigate very quickly to any location in the slideshow.
In case of photos/videos with geo-information, use Google Maps to get to the recording location!
The video also shows scrolling through videos in pauses as well as the 'zoom' mode.
OpenSave
OPEN

With 'OPEN', saved slideshows can be called up again at any time.
If the slideshow folder is not in one of the libraries 'Pictures' or 'Videos', you may have to access the folder again.
The video also shows how you can avoid this - just add with a right click the folder, a parent collection folder or the complete drive to one of the named libraries!
OpenSave
SAVE

Slideshows are saved as special text files with the file extension '.sld'. These contain only the sequence of the files with all necessary parameters.
Since only very little storage space is required for this, several variants can also be stored without any problems.
For the slideshow folder to be easily copied to other disks, the slideshows must be saved directly to the main slideshow folder.
PREFS

Preferences for displaying Photos and Videos:
In the PREFERENCES can be even immediately before playback still display duration, volume reduction of background music for videos and pauses, playback mode (automatic / manual), continuous loop mode, ... change. STYLES allow you to instantly give the slideshow a new look.
