iPhoto movies don't play correctly in Live
- Live Versions: 6 - 9
- Operating System: ALL
Imported iPhoto slideshow movies play sound, but only show a black screen instead of video.
The slideshow has been exported using the “Quicktime” Tab in the iPhoto export window, resulting in a file that can't be played by Live.
In iPhoto, slideshows have to be exported using the “Slideshow” tab instead of the “Quicktime” tab in the export window.
- The “Quicktime” Tab in the iPhoto export window does not create a “real” video file, the resulting .mov file always only contains photos and a crossfade command. Those files can be spotted by checking the file details in the finder: The used codec will be displayed as “PHOTO - JPEG, Cross Fade, Integer (Little Endian), Tween”.
- The “Slideshow” export window tab in iPhoto, which should be used instead, lets you customize all your codec settings.
