I have started to really work with integrating stills and video..so my question is before I move to the LR4 process, Does Lightroom 4 have a slideshow capable of adding video and still images together like iPhoto on Lion? I know everyone doesn't like the iPhoto hog, but it is really a quick way and I didn't want to go into Premier if I don't have to?

No, slideshows in Lightroom are a strictly a vanilla flavored one-trick-pony.

Unfortunately, the Slideshow module has languished in obscurity from the development team for at least two versions ... and ... if history is any indicator (as such feature improvements are rarely if ever introduced with point update) ... it would be at least two years before we could see any such improvements ... which would place Lr at least four years behind iPhoto and Aperture 3 in that respect.

I did ... months ago ... and I have "voted" on EVERY topic concerning the Slideshow module as well as voice my concerns that the Slideshow module needs drastic improvement for two versions ... but it looks as though it will take at least another version to wait and see if there will be any further features added ... Not a great method to drive development considering only a small number of users actually visit here and participate ...

I just voted and there were 9 votes..I guess this may not be a high priority feature, but I think it is very useful, giving that most high end cameras that this product targets now take video and stills and I am not going to buy the premiere product for occaisional edits. Leo

I have Lightroom 4 and a Nikon D7000 which takes video. I would like to be able to use that video along with still images in a slideshow. Currently I use Microsoft Movemaker do do that.

Can I use video as part of a Lightroom 4 slideshow?.
