Syncing slide and sound isn't always easy, not for newcomers, not for experienced users. We could all use a little magic in this realm, but until it shows up, I've posted a download over on ProShow Think that includes examples, tips, and a cool little trick for when a show and its sound are irritating you: Getting in Sync with ProShow
While there, and if you don't already, why not subscribe so you'll be notified when and if I have another brainstorm?

One thing that can bite you - if the cache file (showname.pxc) gets somewhat corrupted, you can pull all your hair out trying to get things to "synch up" - if things seem to be working at right angles to what you expect, try exiting Proshow, deleting the cache (.pxc) file for the show then restart and let it rebuild the file. I have been bitten by that one a number of times.

Mikey, I've never had that happen, but it's probably because I regularly delete the .pxc file whether I need to or not. I view it as the enemy.

I have had it happen several times where letting it rebuild the cache "fixed" the timing issues. While I don't view it as the "enemy", I do consider it one of Murphy's children ... lurking until the best time to strike

I prefer the preemptive strike, deleting it before it can perform a "gotcha," forcing me to go on a mad search for the error of my ways when, in fact, I've been behaving in a most ladylike manner. Admittedly, I don't always, and have caused Producer to throw up its bitty little hands in anguish and disappear. 1 point Barbara, 0 points Producer.

This sounds like very helpful information. However, when I opened the drumbeat.psh show the dialog box came up indicating missing files -it was the Circle-Color.png. I directed it to the Circle-Color.png file but another dialog box came up saying the file "isn't a supported image format". Is there some setting I need to change? Thanks. Lucie

Lucie, ProShow is likely to lose what's sitting staring it in the face, but there's no reason at all for it to reject an ordinary .png file. I can't imagine what went wrong. I'll have to wait to see if anyone else has this problem. In the meantime, send me a PM with your email, and I'll send you another file. Maybe it got damaged in the download.
