New Version: Standalone screensavers and executables!

The new version of Slide Effect (1.1.0) is available, Trial and full version have been updated and are available for download.

The main new features are:

A new menu item has appeared on the file menu: Export Presentation…

If you click on it, a small wizard will appear and you will be able to create your own installable ( thanks to Inno Setup ) screensaver or executable.

Reflection Effect

Reflection effect is available for 2D Text, images and movies objects. I have already described this feature in one of my previous post.

Bug fixes

I have fixed some major bugs in the previous version:

  • Bug fix: Add slide when a slide has been removed does not throw an error anymore.
  • Bug fix: Load twice the same sef file does not throw an error anymore.
  • Bug fix: Music settings does not throw an error anymore when open twice.

I would like to thanks all the users who send me automatic bug reports: I read each of them, and it helps me a lot to track issues and bugs, please keep it going!

What’s next?

Well, I am still working on more export formats (movies and shockwave flash export). I really pushed hard to put these format in this version, but, even if movie export is already working, I need more time to polish everything, so I decided to postpone these features to the next version.

I will also try to add new background effects in the next version and more 2D text options. Comments are welcome if you need something specific.

Have fun!
