Welcome to the forum.
What are the pixel x pixel dimensions of those still images? They should be Scaled to approximately the Frame Size of your Project. What is the Frame Size of your Project?
This ARTICLE will give you some tips on Scaling, prior to Import.
As Bill says, the single most common cause for the program crashing while creating a slideshow is the use of oversized photos.
Never use photos larger than 1000x750 pixels, per the FAQs to the right of this forum.
Hi Bill and Steve,
You both point to the same reason (oversizing) that I was not aware about.
I will learn your recommendations and proposed workflows.
The problem is that this crash happens on large amount of still pictures. Few pictures could be processed without any problem. I should think about massive resizing of images to be included into vy slide shows.
BTW am I right that PRE9 does not solve this problem?
Thank you very much,
If you can handle smaller numbers of large images, but not larger numbers, it is likely a resource issue. It could be RAM, Virtual Memory, or similar.
PrE 9 will have about the same resource requirements, or might use a bit more, so a large number of large still images will remain a problem.
