How to create a perfect slide show in Nero Video easily and quickly?

If you would like to create a slide show in Nero Video after your vacation or for the annual holiday, you may have a very large collection of photos to choose from. The new AI and smart detection features in Nero Suite make Nero Video easier to find and create personalized slide shows to bring your memories to life.

As you know, Nero MediaHome is the universal media center in the Nero suite for archiving, organizing, creating and playing files. Previously, however, you couldn’t make use of these already-archived media information outside of Nero MediaHome and Nero MediaBrowser. Now it is different – from 24.x and higher versions you can make use this information directly in Nero Video.

Easily find your photos with new AI and smart detect information
Let’s start Nero Video and Make Slide Show.

Do you already have your media well organized in Nero MediaHome? Nero MediaHome has an easy way to group photos by people, places or AI tags. Now, in Nero Video, in v.24.x or higher version, just click on the “Group by” drop-down menu and new “Person”, “Places” and “AI Tags” will appear. There are also shortcuts for them on the My Media toolbar.
smart library_group by

If you know exactly who you want to create a slideshow for, select “Person” and your photos in My Media library will be grouped by person so you can find photos that belong to the person you’re looking for.

If you’re coming back from a vacation somewhere, you can also group your photos by “Places”.

If you only remember the general content of a photo, rather than the exact time, person or place, such as a photo on a playground, a certain old bike, or a photo for the birthday party at last year, just press ‘AI Tags’, and the photos will be grouped by content and what they were tagged with.

All of these are done for you automatically, without any work on your part.

Quickly create the perfect slide show with the help of Movie Themes

Now, just add what you need from the grouped photos to the storyboard and you’ve done a big part of the work of creating a video. Then use the Movie Themes that Nero Video has prepared for you. With no video editing skills, Nero Video will automatically collect your memories into a video that tells a good story – complete with a background music, titles, effects and transitions, intro and outro. If you don’t feel satisfied with this theme, you can easily change to a new theme with the click of a button to get a new look and feel for your video.

What is Nero AI video upscaling and how to turn on/off it?

Even people who are not so interested in watching movies may agree that watching videos in high resolution (such as Full HD, 4K) is a wonderful experience. With 4K monitors and TVs becoming more and more popular, are you still satisfied with watching blurry SD videos on 4K monitors or TVs?

What is traditional video upscaling?
Traditional upscaling or resize is the easiest way to stretch a lower resolution video onto a larger displayer. The pixels in the lower resolution image are simply repeated and averaged to fill all the pixels of the higher resolution display. The result is that the video fits a 4K monitor, but it usually looks blurry.

What is Nero AI video upscaling?
Nero AI video upscaling predicts high-resolution videos through an AI model and produces incredible clarity and enhanced details that cannot be reproduced by traditional upscaling, such as sharper edges, more realistic hair, and the landscapes with striking clarity.

  • Nero Platinum supports Nero AI video upscaling up from V24.x and higher.
  • Please attach your monitor to the higher performance graphic card, if your PC has dual graphic cards.
  • Windows 10 or higher 64-bit operating system is recommended.

Enjoy a better performance with enabled hardware-accelerated AI enhancement

We recommend using at least a Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390 graphics cards for hardware accelerated video AI upscaling of SD source files. If you would like to do video AI upscaling of HD source files, we recommended using at least a Nvidia GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon RX 5600 graphics cards.

 

How to turn on/off Nero AI video upscaling?
In Nero Platinum V24.x and higher versions, you can enjoy the improvement of video quality from Nero AI video upscaling during video playback, converting and exporting.

Video Playback – Nero MediaHome
When you are playing video clips, no matter playing from Nero MediaHome Library or in Nero MediaHome Viewer, you will find a “Video Enhancer” icon in the lower right corner. From there you can turn Nero AI video upscaling on or off.

Export – Nero Video
In Nero Video V24.x or later versions, you will find the option to enable or disable Nero AI upscaling in the export settings under “Configure”. Nero Video will apply Nero AI upscaling to your movie project when the target size is larger than your movie resolution settings.

There are two levels for the output quality: standard quality and high quality. With the “high quality” level, you will get a better output file, but it needs more time.

Convert – Nero Recode
In Nero Recode V24.x or higher versions, you will find the “Nero AI upscaling” and its AI hardware acceleration options in Output settings.
Recode_Nero AI upscaling_configure
Recode_Nero AI video upscaling_export
There are no special hardware requirements for the conversion in Nero Recode and the export in Nero Video. The general performance depends on the system performance. But the hardware limitation will not affect the output quality. We recommend running Nero AI upscaling on Windows 10 or higher 64-bit operating systems.

How can Nero Video export or package media files which are used in the project?

Available Products: Nero Platinum Suite, Nero Platinum Suite 2021, Nero Video 2021

 

While using Nero Video to create your own movie, Nero Video can import your own media files like Video, Music or Pictures from different folders or different devices like TV or Camera. At the same time, all media files can be managed in the “My Media” palette.

Sometimes, if you want to consolidate your media files in your disks, or edit the Nero Video project in another PC, you have to

  1. Manually check and copy all used files in the Nero Video project to a specific folder.
  2. Copy or save the Nero Video project to the specific folder again.
  3. It is possible that you have to fix the Nero Video project file issue first before opening the project again. If certain files cannot be set correctly, these files and related applied effects will be removed.

Nero Video 2021 now supports exporting or packaging the project file and used media assets.

Once you have finished video editing and click “Save”, you can “Save project file and assets” by clicking the button “Save As …”.

Popup dialog

Then the Windows folder selection dialog pops up, and you can select the folder which you want to export or package the whole folder. You can even select a removable device or network drive.

Folder

 

Depending on the number of the files you need to export and package, the whole export process will take some time. After the process is finished, you can open the folder to check the exported project and files.

Finish Export Folder

Other info: Nero Video will create a folder with the project name and the date info.
