Before you even attempt to create your own slideshow, think about what you'd like to achieve with it. Now think about what you'd like to avoid. If one of your goals is to keep people awake and interested from beginning to end, you're going to have to infuse some excitement into your presentation. You know, with special effects, animations, and cool stuff like that. And the best, easiest way to do this is? Slide Effect Professional!

Slide Effect Professional lets you create advanced slideshows with stunning special effects in just a few clicks, and with no technical expertise required! With Slide Effect Professional you can take advantage of your computer's graphics processing abilities to incorporate amazing visual effects that incorporate your favorite photos and movies, even PowerPoint slides. Thanks to a library of predefined backgrounds and transition effects, you can get up and running quickly, producing a fully-realized slideshow presentation within minutes. You can even narrate your presentation, or play several musics along the slideshow.

If you end up creating a masterpiece that you'd like to share with the world, Slide Effect Professional makes it a simple affair. You can publish your slideshows as standalone movies that can be hosted on the web, or distributed on DVD!

    Please note folks, the exclusive features of the Professional edition of Slide Effect are:
  • A full featured effect editor to help you create or modify any effect available.
  • Add notes to any slide and display these notes on a second screen when presentation is running.
  • Record a talk-over on your presentation

Lifetime Upgrades Just to clarify, here in "The Fine Print" it says the following:
"Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for the lifetime of the product."

On your website on the "Buy" page it says the following:
"To access all future versions of Slide Effect (buying a license entitles you to all future updates of the software)."

Sometimes, developers differentiate between the words "Update" and "Upgrade".

Are yours the same? Meaning if you go from Slide Effect Professional Edition version 2 to Slide Effect Professional Edition version 3, there will be no charge for any major version upgrade.

Alain Bocherens Hi,

- Updates between versions are free (ie version 2 to version 2.1 or to version 3)

- If you wish to upgrade from Standard to Professional, you have to pay a fee.

In short: if you purchase the Professional version from Bits, you won't have to pay anymore for any Slide Effect update.

Lifetime Upgrades Thank you for the reply.

Now, from my understanding, only minor version updates are free.
Jan 24 at 9:14am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens No, all (minor and major) updates are free.

Gerard User Hi Alain,

Thanks for the generous offer .. I've been using the standard edition for years .. Now looking forward to the professional version .. Purchased it through Bits du Jour and got that confirmed including registration code .. No direct link to the download in that confirmation though .. So went to the Slide Effect site .. Downloaded the only one version at the download page(didn't specify standard or pro) ..

Version 2.0.29 Release date: 24.01.2018 Size: 73.1 [Mb]

Does the insert of the code mentioned above automatically transform the standard edition into the pro version as purchased?

Thanks & succes with further development on this wonderful piece of software :-)

Kind regards, Gerard

Alain Bocherens Hi, thanks for the kind comment.

Yes the key will transform the trial into the Standard/Pro edition depending of the key.

I had separate download for version 1, but it was a hassle to maintain, so now only one download is available, it is easier for everybody :-)

Nelson Therrien Is lifetime something new?

Because I did buy SE v.1 (probably here on BDJ) and was not able to upgrade to v.2 (had to pay the upgrade, which I didn't)...
Jan 25 at 6:24am Copy Link
Gerard User Thanks for the swift reply Alain! Does the new install override the earlier (standard) version by default? And can I import projectfiles from the past in the pro version?
Jan 25 at 6:28am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens Lifetime is the new policy, yes.

For SE1 I had a "one year upgrade" policy, but I decided to go for a lifetime licence for SE2.

Here is what I wrote when SE2 was released:
"I already purchased Slide Effect 1, should I purchase Slide Effect 2?"

Here is the rule:

- You purchased Slide Effect in 2015 or 2016: You are entitled for a free license – You will receive an email soon.
- You purchased Slide Effect in 2014: You can purchase Slide Effect 2 with a 50% discount – You will receive an email soon.
- You purchased Slide Effect before 2014: Sorry, you are not entitled to any special discount.

Something important to know: a Slide Effect 2 license will be valid for any future version of the software: there is not anymore “one year of free upgrade policy” limitation: As soon as you purchase Slide Effect 2, you will have a perpetual license for the software and all future upgrades.
Devsoft - Jan 25 at 6:30am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens @Gerard: version 1 Project files are not compatible with version 2, sorry.

But SE2 will not override SE1, so you can have both version installed on the same computer, this way you can still use SE1 for older projects.
Devsoft - Jan 25 at 6:31am Copy Link
Nelson Therrien Thank you Alain.

To be honnest, I never had to use SE... and paid $43 for it ($9 for Standard and $34 for the upgrade to Pro)...

So, $13.80 for Pro lifetime is a bargain...

I'll still go for it, hoping to use it someday ;)

Gerard User Thanks Alain .. Just had it installed .. Works like a charm.. I'll keep you posted on the Slide Effect forum :)

MBe Hi, where can I get a tutorial for creating new effects, transitions or filters?
Jan 25 at 10:41am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens You can find some help regarding the effect creation here:
Devsoft - Jan 25 at 11:29am Copy Link
MBe I know your forum, but I don't understand these explanations, sorry.
Do you have examples, how it works?
Jan 25 at 11:35am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens When you have a Pro licence you can open and edit all current effect to play wtih it.

Effects are made in LUA language.
Filters are shader effects made in GLSL

Danny Note: lifetime updates/upgrades license covers only '' SE 2 '' In the future as there may be new version as '' SE 3 '' is realized, then we should have to pay for this new version. Is that right?
Jan 25 at 11:48am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens Lifetime license cover SE3, SE4 or SE19, no worries.
Devsoft - Jan 25 at 11:57am Copy Link

Lonny User when i downloaded this software from here, it is the free version not the professional version, i only have 3 hours left, i need pan & zoom in any slideshow maker, do not see this in free version, i just recently bought smartshow 3d deluxe 9.15 which is a good slideshow maker, you can customize just about anything, i am going to buy this one but if i do not like it i will want a refund, i have many slideshow makers already, i do not understand why i get the free version from this download here ?
Jan 26 at 3:11am Copy Link
UweS @Lonny User - If you bought the software you receive a licence code. Start the trial, click on Help and you find the entry to activate the full programm.

@Alain Bocherens - Thanks for this great offer. A really good piece of software.
Jan 26 at 4:10am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens Lonny User: There is only one download, it is the same for trial, Standard and Professional edition. The specific features are unlocked when you enter your license key.

We offer a 30 days money back guarantee, so you can ask for a refund if you wish to.

Gerard User Alain,

I purchased the pro version yesterday .. And as expected .. Things look promising .. I am looking forward more specifically to the possibility to personalize transitions and effect using the included editor .. I am missing out on the ken burns effect so far though .. It was standard in the standard version I purchased in 2015 where it could be found under the section animations .. Did I overlook it in the pro version or did you rename it ?

Jan 26 at 4:28am Copy Link
Alain Bocherens Gerard: The Ken Burns Effect is not here - as I changed the way animations are made, some effects are still not here... But I will add this effect as soon as I have some time in the additional effects section of the website.
Devsoft - Jan 26 at 4:50am Copy Link
Gerard User I would truly appreciate if you would be able to add the Ken Burns on shortest notice Alain .. It has become a standard in providing that Cinematic look & feel to a professional presentation .. And as you do so .. I would suggest to make that Ken Burns effect possible to edit .. so you can predefine the movement and scaling .. For some comparison I refer to Filmora .. the editor I use for video editing .. Would you look under - pan & zoom - you get visualised what I just indicated

Thanks Again for the swift reply Alain :)

Orochi User I was hesitant to purchase this, downloaded the trial today and found out it is in fact a great piece of software, thanks!
