What's new in PTE AV Studio 10
DiaporaShop has very modestly participated in version 10 by creating three new styles that you will find as standard in the software.
These styles are available in the Experimentssection. in the Styles and Themes window :
- Watercolour : progressively displays an image by a watercolour spot effect
- Brushstrokes: gradually displays an image using brushstroke effects
- Suspended images: Five images are presented successively with a parallax effect.
Compatibility with DiaporaShop styles and transitions
Good news, all styles and transitions available on DiaporaShop created in version 9 are compatible with PTE AV Studio 10 editions.
If you have version 9 of PTE with your own custom styles and transitions or from DiaporaShop, when installing version 10, a window will appear and will propose you to choose the previous version in order to import its parameters. By clicking on the Validate button, all your styles and transitions from version 9 will be imported in the new version.
In conclusion, version 10 brings many improvements including the concept of Themes to facilitate the creation of a slideshow. A theme is a set of several styles that can be applied in one click to several slides. Users can create new custom themes and share them.
If the functionality is interesting, it is possible that DiaporaShop makes this type of product available.
