What is the languagesetting of your windows? By preview I mean running the video in the video player. Is it the same behaviour in the video player?

Window 7 language setting is English. Both preview and export have the some issue. I manually set the font to Simsun and select GB2312 in each slide.
The setting of the System Locale in Windows 7 fixed the non-English subtitle issues. This version also fixed the external program issue.
As for the font setting for indiviadual slides, I couldn't locate it in the slide settings menu.
Are refering to this ?
Anyway, it still display the English subtitle correctly even in Chinese font.
Thank you very much.
In File>External Programs you can set the paths to external programs such as the media player.
If I remember correctly I talked about subtitle tags in the video tutorial I posted a link to a few posts back in this thread.
The preview crashed even with less than 150 slides. I couldn't find any option for no transition. So, I am not sure if it was the transition that caused the crash. My system is core i7 with 8GB RAM. OS is windows 7 Home Premium.
I reverted from V.0.9.5.4 to V.0.9.5.2. It preview OK with 257 slides. But HCenc crashed during export. I change HCenc to 0.25 but it still crashed.
Update on 16th Jan 2013 -
1. I tried from oldest to V.0.9.5.4. Went throught many install and uninstall in the process.
2. Somehow the dissolve trasition is bugged. Preview and encode crashed with "dissolved" transition.
3. In order to update trasition for all slides, first must select all slides and update trasition in the slide menu. That was my mistake for not update all the slides so that the "dissolves" transition are removed.
4. As long as I don't exceed 300 slides, the V.0.9.5.4 runs fine on Windows 7. Subtitle is ok too with english and chinese characters.
5. I changed the bitrate and maxbitrate in the HC.ini file to 6000 and 6500. This reduced the filesize by half.

I have tried more that 350 slides without any issues. The transition Dissolve_Bloom.avs is bugged. It crashed with only 2 slides.
So, V.0.9.5.4 works fine on Windows 7 Home Premium with 8Gb RAM. For foreign language subtitle, just change System Locale to the foreign language.
Thank you very much.
I've got some very small, old jpg photo files- for example- 67 x 86, 90 x 75 etc.
When I create my slideshow, these pictures use the full height of the screen and are therefore heavily pixelated.
I know that using the pictures at their original size will make them look very small on screen, but at least they would be recognisable!
What's the best way to prevent them being 'stretched' to use the full height of the screen?
What do you think about slideshow in Ultra High Definition- 4K or 8K.
This might be a simple setting error or difference in my platforms environment, because the preview function does work.
DVD Slideshow Version: DVDsGUI0954.exe
O.S. Japanese Microsoft XP Home Edition (Yes I prefer *nix)
Description of failure: mpg or avi file fails to be built.
What happens when I try to export:
dvdslideshow invokes HCenc and all starts well, but then HCenc displays the following error:
'(8) ERROR, can't open dbs file, invalid path?'
The above number eight get redisplay as 7, and then on down to 1 and then the window
closes and disappears. All temp/files and any .ac3 and a NULL .mpg files are immediately erased. (I have attached a bmp picture file of the HCEnc screen display.
Note that the "Preview" funcationality works and DVDsGUItemp.avs does play fine.
I searched through the .avs file and could not find any reference to a db file.
I am unfamiliar with HCenc.
What 'dbs' files are missing and where are they llikely to be?
Please advise me on what some possible solutions to this are, so that I can build an mpg file successfully.

Searching this thread for dbs, it reveals that that it is a possible setting in the HCenc ini file, which isn't set in the DSG included hcenc ini files. This is typically not necessary even on my Windows 8 computer. So I would guess that your HCenc might need to have the permission(set to Run as Admin?) to create that file or you could try to add the setting to the Hcenc ini files and specify a path where the file can be saved to.
I haven't encountered anything like what you mention there, so my guess is as good as yours.
But it is a good thing that the preview plays fine. This means you could export as avs and use VirtualDub, WinFF or Super or even EyeFrame Converter to convert the Avisynth script into a video file - depending on what format you need to end up with.
