"I'm already posted answer on Doom9 forum on similar question. Shortly: No. Available 3rd party tools can't create proper slideshows, only Scenarist Still Image Encoder can.

Here's a question for the general authoring public. I've been using the Slideshow feature on Scenarist BD. It's a feature that never really worked right on DSA, and I'm very happy to have it working now.One minor problem: the Still Image Encoder app provided with Scenarist just isn't very good compared to other encoders out there. Even at the highest bitrates some images are coming out with very visible compression artifacts.Has anyone used a 3rd party encoder (such as x264) to encode Slideshow…See More
Here's a dopey question I don't have the gear to answer... Does Adobe Media Encoder's h.264 encoder actually work? Does the Blu-ray spec files it generates (with the funky .m4v suffix) actually work and pass verifier tests if you use them on a Blu-ray?While I'd never use it for anything important, I do occasionally need a "quick and dirty" drag-and-drop encoder for dumb stuff like static menu backgrounds and low quality bonus items. I've been using Compressor for that, but it's been getting…See More
"Agreed, be very careful. There was an update for Windows 10 Pro last year that made DoStudio Authoring fail to build BDCMF files unless it's launched in administrator mode, and even then it's dicey. I wouldn't risk it."
"One other piece of great news. One of my main clients has recently started producing "SD-BDs", which are Blu-rays filled with SD material (as you can comfortably cram about 20 hours of SD content on a BD-50). However, our preferred format,…"
"Sure thing, Tobias. It's... well, ludicrously complicated but not that hard.
Save your thumbnails as 240x416 and 360x640 JPEGs. The filename should not have spaces.*

Hey everyone,Since it seems this forum is here to stay (and is transitioning away from DSA) I thought it'd be a good place to start a discussion about transitioning off of DoStudio to Scenarist. I recently made the switch, and have finished two discs so far. I can't say it was EASY exactly, but it definitely could've been a lot worse.A few of my experiences:• My menu designers were able to transition to Scenarist format with relative ease. If you ignore most of the Scenarist-supplied scripts,…See More
"Hey Denny! Long time no chat!
Actually, I've think I've found the perfect app for subtitle rendering (with my ridiculously needy audience), the command line/open source app AVS2BDNXML. It requires AVISynth, and also a video file matching…"
There should be something out there in regards to BDN XML there were a few people working on all kinds of utilities in this area way back when. I'll see what I can dig up. What are the exact details you need to…"
"That's great that you're working on .dost subtitle importing! That said, Scripting Assistant was great because it automatically checked for subtitle events that were too short, flagged them, and allowed you to tweak the script to resolve…"
your name sounds familiar and then i see your Co. website. we might have met or i just heard your name around. I used to work for Media Blasters years ago, doing there editing and authoring. My name is Scott Marchfeld.
