Is it possible to add other export formats other then mp4 to the slide show feature. I would like to be able to bring the exported slide show into Vegas 7 and add audio tracks and overlays which can't be dome in Lightroom 3. However, Vegas will not recognize the mp4 format.

Can Adobe add other formats for example mpeg 2, avi, even generic uncompressed avi would allow us to import our shows into other programs for additional work.

Thanks,

Charles - Do have a look at http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh... . I don't know Vegas7 or how fancy it may be, but your request for additional audio tracks is in this other thread. What kind of overlays do you mean?

Hi John,

Sony Vegas is a pro level video editor. Since we can't use multiple audio or video tracks in Lightroom, it would be useful to be able to export a universal format for work in other programs, such as Vegas, Premiere, Final Cut, etc. Personally, I would like to be able to add a music track, whether stereo or 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, and a dialogue track. Additionally, in Vegas I can split the slide-show stream and insert an overlay of text, graphics or even a video clip. All of which is now impossible without going to another program. While it would be nice to be able to do all this in LR, I wouldn't expect Adobe to add this type of functionality. I would expect to be able to export a standard format such as avi, mpeg.

I know my version of Vegas is a couple of generations back, but since I don't work with HD, it works quite well with the old service movies I deal with.

Hope this helped better explain my request. I did take a look at the thread you suggested, and I think I'm taking a bit of a different approach. I don't mind the basic slide show feature, I would prefer to do the heavy lifting in a program more suitable for that type of work. I would certainly support adding this to LR, but I think for now we can get there with better exporting format selections.
