Combo "DVD/Executable" disc option, like ProShow
Something I haven't found in Photopia that was in ProShow and that I found very useful was the ability to create a DVD (or DVD .iso file) that combined the DVD for viewing on a standard DVD player, and an executable for viewing on a computer. I hope this makes the cut for a future improvement as I find them useful to reduce the number of output options I have to provide. Thanks!
This seems to be an ongoing request.
In my case I like to include an mp4 version on each of my DVD discs to offer the user a clearer video of the show.
I do not know how to do this "manually," but the Photodex option to include file(s) from another folder was exactly what I needed to accomplish this. After that option was added to the Photodex Publish function, I added the .mp4 version files to all of the DVDs I published.
This is a feature I miss greatly and am now waiting, hopefully, for such a feature to be added, as are my most recent "customers." It is a show of their latest--July 12, 2020, 50th--wedding anniversary celebration, a month ago now, and very important to them, and consequently me!

I'm not sure where the option is that you have found that solves what I'm looking for. First, the latest copy I have of the program is 1.0.526 for Windows. When I look at the DVD options for publishing, nowhere does it suggest that it will create a DVD along with an executable file of a project. In ProShow Producer when you create a DVD there is a tab for including an executable file on the DVD in addition to the DVD folder set. I don't see that in the version of Photopia I'm running, which reports to be the latest.
Hey Duane, you are running the latest RELEASED version, @deanathans is part of the Beta group which receives updates before they are released. The fact that he says it is in his latest version is a good sign, should be out in the next release.
Hooray! Will be glad to see that - I just did a major show that needs this feature. Thanks for the heads-up, Bob.
