Hi, Joe and EP team!
Thanks for asking. This is something I personally have written more than once. The advantage of changing the slideshow as far as I see it is only that when you click on a thumbnail a combo box or any other way of linking to a scene out of the movie path, will link you to a edited scene and not to the crude scene. I know that now in YW 4.0 you can edit the slideshow, but the same when you click on a thumbnail it will take you to the unedited scene saved who knows where, because to save the changes in slideshow you have to change it name and therefore loose it.The best choice would be that when setting the scenes in those boxes, you could choose from where you want each scene to be loaded. For example in thumbnails: scene 1 should be loaded from slideshow (unedited) scene 2 from movie one (edited for example) and so on. That is usefull if you have scenes where you want not to show the 360 degrees of it. If that could be done I see no need to have the possibility of editing the slideshow. At the actual state of editing the slideshow and how it has to be done (explained to me by EP in one post) once saved you loose all the crude/rouge scene, with no chance to recover it. Because you have not to leave the movieREC window (if so you will loose all the edited settings) and tos ave it you have to change the name of it and so loose the slideshow in its original form. That could be usefull in only one sense and that is that you could link to the edited scene ask mentioned above, but even that is not working at the moment.
So I propose to give us the option to choose what scene we wanted to load. I hope I could it make understandable and sorry for this extensive post. If something needs to be clarified please let me/us know.
Regards and again thanks for your support!
