Nero Vision Slideshow transcodes forever


Is there anyone who knows the limitations of Vision to create JPEG-based slideshows? I’ve created a project, nearly 4GB but with “excellent video quality” - Transcoding starts, the menus are transcoded, and then Vision starts transcoding the first project.

Problem is, it goes all night, all day all night…without ‘finishing’ the transcoding on the first slideshow. At that point, the amusement wore off and I tried “Abort” but that didn’t work, and I used the task manager to terminate the process.

Is there a limit to the number or size of .jpg files one can use in a slideshow? Am I simply up against a known issue and should find another program? If so, what’s recommended for slideshows?
