PTE AV Studio Facts – Why the software name change – PTE AV Studio is the same great software as PicturesToExe. The name change was brought about because our main publish choice for our presentations is now a high quality Mp4 video, rather than the executable file we used to create,
Triptography – This audio visual is rather simple in design. Apart from the first main image that uses animation, all the other images were created just as you see them in the show.
Its combining different transitions to match with the image shapes that helps enormously, plus the use of the smoothing line in PTE AV Studio/PicturesToExe This short presentation can be viewed here in full HD resolution or you can download the video here.
PTE AV Studio Facts – The Smoothing line is a setting within the transition options of PTE AV Studio/PicturesToExe. It allows the user to vary the edge softness of transitions such as Shapes, Hour Hand and others. It can make a significant difference to the default settings. Go to Project Options > Transitions, or Slide Options > Transitions
In High Places – This Audio Visual has been created solely from video clips shot in Tasmania using a Mavic Pro 2 Drone. PTE AV Studio handles video up to 4k extremely well. Download this presentation here

Botanical Artistry – This sequence gained a merit in an Audio Visual competition. Botanic Artistry is all about using PTE AV Studio/PicturesToExe software to present the images at their best. Photographic technique, mixed with AV presentation techniques. Music and synchronized images. Gentle animation takes away that static look and we have tutorials on Animation techniques too.

The Dock of the Bay – The beauty of audio visual is that the inspiration can come from unlikely places. While looking through images on my PC. I was listening to music on my headphones when I happened to stop on an image as this piece of music played. The image matched the music and the idea was born. Download this presentation here
PTE AV Studio Facts – Animation Keyframes work like way-points. The first keyframe will adjust position and size of an object. Add last keyframe and adjust the final position of an object and its parameters. PTE AV Studio will animate the object between these keyframes using pan, zoom, rotate etc.
The Blue Mountains – The inspiration came from the images I shot, but also the information I read. It was all about how the Blue Mountains in Australia were formed over millions of years. I also love this music, so it seemed natural to combine the two, but to also add some information as well as just pretty pictures. Download the video here.
The Storm Season – One of the few sequences where not all the images were taken by me. Some were taken by my son with a Mavic Pro drone, although I used my photographic skills to take him to the right place at the right time to capture the shots. Download the video here
PTE AV Studio Facts – PTE AV Studio can easily handle video up to 4K in size and also offers video editing too. Anything that we can do with still images is now available for video clips too.
The Directors Cut – The images inspired this sequence and gave me a reason to create the slide show. In this sequence I have made the most of the images by identifying and enhancing the third image. The third image is a term used to describe what we see. When one image fades into another and for a second or two we see a third image. A combination of the two. We have covered this topic in our tutorials called Creative Audio Visual Techniques. Download this presentation here
PTE AV Studio Facts – Music, commentary and sound effects can all be used and edited within the software via the audio envelope tools. Sound files can be played consecutively and/or simultaneously. Adjusting sound volume via Audio Key-Points to allow for the insertion of the spoken word. It’s quick and easy to achieve.
