Can't seem to find a flawless path burning my JPEG Photos in Aperture, adding my Music from iTunes thus creating a great photo slide show with MUSIC?

I have made it happen Photos/Music & it plays on iDVD preview but when I pop it out of my Mac desktop head for the Tv/DVD player all I get is a photo slide show... NO Music? does anyone have a sure fire step by step path that combines Photos & Music for a slide show via Aperture?

 

Thanks, Dave

    Dave,

    how do you add your music?

    In Aperture's slideshow, by dragging an iTunes song from the Media Browser to the filmsstrip, or by adding a background audio track in iDVD?

    By adding background music to slide show once in iDVD. Selecting Photo file 1st via Media button, once there select Audio... then it gets to be a mess? can't grasp how to chose my iTunes songs and combine properly?

    also need multiple songs at least 6 minutes to say 30 minutes worth of music depending on size of Photo file?

    You could try the Slideshow in Aperture.

    Select the images in Aperture, then from the main menu bar:

         File > New > Slideshow

     

    Pick one of the Themes, and drag music from the Media Browser to the film strip. Then export as a video and import to iDVD to burn your slideshow.

    Ok I almost have it down; yesterday I succesfully burned 2 DVD's with Audio & used 2 methods. Using your path while in Aperture: File>New>Slideshow > drag in music from Media browser to film strip worked easy & Great, Thank You! Part 2 DVD 2 I went straight thru iDVD found title & picked it up! 2 for 2 Both worked!

    Now Dumb me I can't remember the path to Export from Aperture to iDVD?

    While in Aperture I see the Export Button in top right corner; Drop down menu> Title > Pictures > Aperture Slideshow > export HD1080 > press button > Export. Across from export button (on Drop down Menu) is "New Folder" button also. (alowes U to title)

    Not finding "export as a Video" (just export button) . Aperture menu for Export: Version,Original, or Slideshow as a new library?

    Then over to iDVD > Create new Project > pick a Theme > drop photos from your media  into theme frames,  add title to theme > select a start button > drag folder under Theme block > select Audio & drag on top of Theme block & Photo Block > select burn. Wow it worked again... as I write this!

    But it doesnt import it just like slide show from Aperture other than the titled Photo file NO Audio?

    You literally have to start over more or less in iDVD?

    If no more suggestions, thanks a lot, at least found a path maybe 2. Dave

    Dave,

    No, you can create the Slideshow directly in Aperture, if you export from the Slideshow panel, not with "File > Export", like this:

     

    • Arrange your images in the Film strip;
    • Drag music to the primary audio track (drag to the space between the images) or as effects to a secondary audio track (drag onto one of the slides)
    • After adjusting all options, export and render your slideshow as a movie by pressing the "Export" button in the upper right corner.
    • Import the exported movie to iDVD.

     

    Regard

    Ask more, if I still forgot to mention something
