Adding a PicturesToExe Video to another Project

It is sometimes required to add a Video file which has been generated from a PicturesToExe Project to another PicturesToExe Project.

  • To create the video file for this purpose use the “Create AVI video” output option.
  • Choose a preset (width/height from a list) or the “Custom” → “MPEG4-ASP…” codec.
  • PicturesToExe will create exactly same file as the video convertor.
  • Choose “Best quality” or Quality = 100

If you choose size 1280×720 or less, you can try 60p frames per second for smoother animation.

For 1920×1080 choose 30p.
