    I cannot get aperture to export my slideshow using 1080i - I just get an error message at the end that it was unable to export it. Aperture also crashes alot and I have done the upgrade. At this point I would like to go back to Aperture 2.0 as it was at least stable. I am just trying to get the dang slideshow off my desk and to my customer.

    I turned off my power management and still go an error. "Operation couldn't be competed. ossstatus error -9459. When I exported to 720 it worked, but the slideshow started somewhere in the middle so that was also worthless. I'm currently just using iPhoto. C'mon Apple fix this dog so it hunts.

    Same problems here with the slideshow 'panels'. I tried and tried, it takes a lot of time but no results...... Aperture crashes or gives a I/O error. I also tried to make a slideshow in iDVD but there the music is unstable at the transitions. I'm now busy for 2 day's to make a slideshow. Apple engineers: better make it working when you put this function in your software. When it does not work, don't make it available!

    You might want to give it up and use iPhoto. That's what I finally did. I added my pictures to the show, set my template to what I wanted, then added my music. After that exported to iDVD and it worked perfectly.

    I did that also. Took 3 times before I didn't get an error. However, the quality was not as good on my TV and using iPhoto.

    The energy saver tip work regarding the error. My problem is the content of my export. I'm trying to export over 100 images, using 3 audio tracks and one .avi.
    My export plays all 3 tracks, but begins at the wrong place. It starts by showing Image 70, but at the beginning of the first track. Basiclly, the image sync is completly wrong from how I built it. Any ideas?

    Same thing here. I tried a number of things. Finally gave up and used iPhoto which worked much better. I also have Adobe Premier and Final Cut, but with something so simple as a slide show, the program should work.

    I did notice that there was an update to Aperture the other day and maybe that will help. Have not tried it since the update.

    I have a 90 second slide show, and have failed using the MobileMe/YouTube and 720p presets to get a movie with audio that plays. QT Pro shows there is an audio track.

    This feature is an awkard less then epic fail.

    I just started using Aperture 3 and have exported my slideshow twice - the first time onto i-tunes and then to my i-phone, and it's brilliant.

    My second export was HD1080p. I haven't got a clue what this means - I want my clients to be able to view on a pc. Any ideas which setting I should use?

    It took over 3 hours for a 10-minute slideshow but my client tried it - on the first pc the sound was great but the pictures appeared corrupted. On the second pc (using Quick Time) both pictures and sound track were running too slowly - no doubt the 10 minute slideshow is now 14 minutes!!!

    Any ideas why each pc reacted differently? I'm trying to run a business here and offer slideshow presentations.... for everyone not just Mac users!!!
