We’re excited to announce the long awaited, comprehensive, Photopia User Guide. This manual includes a table of contents and hyperlinks that allow you to jump right to the section you want to learn.
Dual and Triple Previews
We have expanded the Single Preview to include Dual and Triple Preview options. Unlike the Single Preview, which only shows the slide at the current keyframe, the Dual and Triple Preview options also show the slide at adjacent keyframes. This can make it easier to edit more complex slides.
Import / Export Library
The process of moving Photopia files from one computer to another can be cumbersome. The new Import / Export Library feature streamlines that workflow, making it easier to be sure all your files are moved over properly. This feature works across Windows and Mac platforms.
Custom Color Schemes
The colors of the Photopia interface are getting a makeover and you can decide what colors get used! There are now 4 new preset Color Schemes to choose from, plus the ability to create your own.
Faster Video Output
The process of creating video output from Photopia just got a lot faster. There is also better support for hardware accelerated video encoding with NVENC on Windows (Nvidia only) and Video Toolbox on Mac.
There are new tracks in the Music Library for both Director and Creator, a LOT more.
There are new organizational tools on the Home Page in Photopia that you never knew you needed but will soon find hard to live without!
- Project Groups – Projects can now be moved into custom Project Groups.
- Tags and Keywords – Projects now accept Tags and Keywords. Tags make it easier to visually identify a project in the list while Keywords make it easier to find a project using the Search bar.
Custom Video Output
The new Custom Video File output option provides a way to create video output with custom parameters. Choose from things like file type, codec, resolution, framerate, bitrate, and other options.
