I have Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum Ver 10.0 running under Win 7 Professional 64-bit.
I am trying to make my first slideshow and I cannot get Effects to work. As per pp 21-22 of the manual I start a new project, put the cursor at the beginning of the Video Timeline and Insert -> Slideshow. I put pictures (jpegs) into the Slideshow Creator box and choose the Settings tab where I set the Time Per Picture to 4 sec, the Overlap to 1 sec and Effect to Fades with Zoom (no particular reasons for this choice of settings - simply trying the software out). I then click Create to put the pictures on the Video Timeline and close the Creator Box.
When I preview the project the pictures show up one after the other but they cut straight from one picture to the next; there is no sign of any effect. What am I doing wrong?
