I've installed it without any problem. I thought I would check it out with a 4 photo slideshow. I can add the photos, edit them, change transitions but I am unable to see the preview. The slideshow never starts.

If anyone could help me out, I would be thankful.

Cheers..!!

I got this software to work fine on my computer, but when I created a DVD with it and played it on my TV, there's a watermark splashed across every picture. The only way to get rid of this is to register and buy the "real" version. What's so free about this?? Any suggestions? Or is this the way it is?

I hope nobody needs to contact Wondershare for help or support. I had a problem with one of their previous giveaways, and no one would reply back to me after several attempts. I no longer will use any of the products they offer here! It's a very bad way of handling a customers questions about their products! I wouldn't use Wondershare's products even if they paid me to!!!! :(

I ran the movie story program and checked the registration. It does say giveawayoftheday and there is a registration number below that, both are grayed out. I clicked in those fields, it will not allow any typing in those fields. This makes me think it has been registered / activated, in spite of the error message I got earlier that said the giveaway period was over.

I do understand that this is a gift horse and I can't complain if it turns out I missed out on this program. I paid nothing, so I have no right to complain. But I do hope I finally have it!

I have run activate dozens of times, getting nowhere. I keep getting the message “Giveaway period for this software is over, please check our web-site for a new giveaway." Now down to 42 minutes before the time the offer should actually expire.

Another thing - the accompanying readme text file says to run activate.exe first, but post #1 (which I assume is posted by GAOTD) says to run setup first. I read the text file first and so ran activate.exe first.

But it did not ask me for name and registration number, maybe I will encounter that if I get past the problem of the erroneous timing error message.

Didn't work the first time around on Vista... even when I ran the program as Administrator. Uninstalled everything. Downloaded the program once again. Ran set-up as Administrator and then ran Activate as Adminstrator. Works perfectly now. Keep trying. The proram is worth it. Merry Christmas to all!

Still trying to run activate.exe. Time is running out. I have Vista, and I'm running activate.exe as administrator. I'm getting the message "Giveaway period for this software is over, please check our web-site for a new giveaway.

It's 12:52 central time, still over an hour away from when the giveaway is supposed to expire. Apparently activate.exe phones home to GAOTD to see if the offer is expired, so something is wrong. I will hate to miss out on this fine piece of sofware. Please, GAOTD, please check your timer checking sofware, and soon! Thanks.

Few points...
1) Registration works but, it should be run not only after the program is installed but also has to be run at least once... If at the end of installation you uncheck the the box next to run the program now, and then run the registration ... it won't work...
But, that is fine, because people have to use it one time anyways...
I don't know this is done in purpose like that or what... As, maybe it is done like that so people who only hoard programs without using them, won't get to use this one when they try to check it later after the free give away period is finished... And, they thought that running activate program is enough... So, always test the program during the free period...
2) I tested the program and I am happy that it is not fixed to one place on the screen but you can move it around... As, I have the Windows bar to the side and some programs don't consider this scenario and that gets part of it hidden behind the Windows status bar!
3) I like it and I tested its effect and found that it is very nice that it adds random effects automatically as a default and later you can modify or remove them if you wish...

Good work and good program, I am happy about it... Thumbs up and thanks to both Wondershare and GAOTD team... :)

wondershare has always good programmes, and this one is no exception. i used it within minutes after installing, it makes slideshows like a dream, and you can add videos and whatnot. what's extra neat, is that it takes care of the menues for the dvd part - you just choose the template. much easier to use than pinnacle, which i've been using for a few years.

RUNNING VISTA, and this unbelieveable piece of operating system will not let administrator or anyone else change or add programs. Well somehow i get the activating program which tries to connect to gotd, then I get 'failed to connect. Please try again later OK"

The download page says
Wondershare Movie Story 4.5.0 is available as a Giveaway of the day! You have 3 hours 47 minutes to download and install it.

BUT Attempting to run the Setup as Administrator or not gives this error message:

Giveaway period for this software is over, please check our web-site for a new giveaway

What the heck! Am I going to miss out on this because the GOTD website is messed up????? Is there any way to get around this?

I'll give this one a go. I normally use Vegas, but sometimes want something that doesn't take so long to launch.

Had the usual problem with the registration (running the activation thing and still have it ask for reg info), since it's just habit for me to close GoTD programs and then reopen them to have them actually be registered. Once I activated it with the program still open instead of closing it first, it worked fine.

Hi folks,

I just installed this SW on my laptop which has Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

1) SW installed A-OK. Installed itself under X86.

2) Using the Activate.exe ... as everbody else has mentioned had to do it as Admin. Note you have to be connected to internet while doing it.

3) Here what the problem was fro me it took 4 TRIES to get the prgram get Registered under GAOTD with Registration Code. I do NOT understand WHY!?!?

4) I tried to check it out quickly ... PROBLEM again ... the Transition Effect ... the Letters (A, B, ...) are FLIPPED ... upside down.
Q: Has anyone else noticed this also???

5) My 1st impression is ... it looks like Windows Movie Maker ... so!!!!

G!:)

A great feature-filled little utility, with most necessary features. A nice GUI, too, although I wonder why a skinning option isn't used, too.

One major peeve to Wondershare, please...incorporate a Manual Video Motion action by a User. Similar to a rival such utility (MS MovieMaker, or somesuch, as you well know). By allowing a User to control the PRECISE area to begin, duration, and then end the Video Motion, a MUCH greater level of Creativity is possible.

As yours presently is, well...its more a "dumb" Video Motion, to what would have made it unique and a "category-killer". As an Artist, I just can't get sufficient "tactile feel" to control what I wish to produce. Until then, the venerable MS one still has you beat. Too much "hit or miss" trying to use the "motion templates" in the sidebar.

Still, an interesting free-for-a-day utility to try out awhile. Thanks!

Very good software, easy to use and supports many formats and tasks.

That being said, it's not for me. I use Adobe Premier, Encore, AfterFX, etc...

One of the best free givaways I have seen here though, nice! I do recommend it for anyone looking for a free (for now) solution.

Had the same problem, as a lot of people. Asked me for the registration. All i did was hit the "Later" button then exited the program. Then i opened it up again -- it did not ask me for the registration, so i went to the registration button on the top right of screen and it was all filled out. Hope this helps.

Excellent program!!

Probably the best GAOTD of the last weeks or even months. Definetely a KEEPER!

For those who won't be able to get this GEM before the offer is over I suggest having a look at the following GOOD FREEWARE ALTERNATIVES:




1)PHOTOZIG ALBUMS EXPRESS 1.0.302

http://www.download.com/Photozig-Albums-Express/3000-12511_4-10524846.html?tag=mncol

With Photozig Albums, you can:

* transfer pictures directly from your camera, create photo albums, organize them in any way you want, search with tags/keywords, and share with your family and friends all in one program.

* make every picture look perfect with Red-eye correction, cropping, and the "Quick Fix" editing feature to correct brightness/contrast/levels to produce a great photo.

* organize your photos into albums and create slideshows with photos + MP3 songs or even screensavers.

* E-mail pictures to your friends and family, create photo galleries or blogs on the Web for free, and make CDs with slideshows and music.

* burn a CD/DVD with auto slideshows, which are slideshows with photos and music automatically created by the program from digital photo albums.

IN ONE WORD: EXCELLENT FOR NON ADVANCED USERS and VERY SIMILAR TO THIS GAOTD!



2)AcsSoft Photo Movie Album V8.2

http://www.acssoft.net/

It scans your PC for your photos and movies, and build the albums for you automatically. You can create a new album from your digital camera, which copies the photos and movies via the USB port to your PC. You can record a voice message, create notes, set slideshow speed, set password protection, choose background music and then be displayed as slideshow or screen savers with special effects or published as web pages to the Internet or burned to CD-R.



3)Slideshow Software Photo Album Program

http://www.mediakg.com/products/m_en_diashow.html

It produces easy and professional slideshows with over 50 effects for pictures allowing users to add afterwards their favorite song from an Audio-CD and then build their own screensaver or HTML webpages with their pictures uploading them to the internet.



There is also a stunning FREE ONLINE SERVICE (see below for the link) which allows us to make fabulous photos and video slideshows in a professional and very easy way. In fact to make home movie making & video dvd slideshows it's enough to upload our pics from our computer into their interactive drag-and-drop slide show creator and then get the code to embed the slideshows on our own site (they are in Flash SWF format, so anyone can see them, even with a bloody 56K dialup such as mine...LOL) or turn our slideshows into VIDEO to burn to our DVDs or upload to YouTubea adding our own MP3 Soundtrack as well.

Best of all, BASIC MEMBERSHIP is completely FREE! AMAZING!!

http://www.slideroll.com/




To convert VIDEO (AVI, MPEG etc...) to DVD see also:


Movie DVD Maker

http://www.sothinkmedia.com/movie-dvd-maker/



Finally for those keen on creating and sharing audio slideshows on the WEB (for instance to make online courses) a good online application is definetely SLIDESTORY PUBLISHER:

http://www.download.com/Slidestory-Publisher/3000-6675_4-10759789.html?tag=mncol


With this little online application it's possible to add our own voice to describe details in the slideshows pictures with just one click on the Slidestory.com website.


Hope you found my information useful!!


Cheers from Italy!!

Details and download links for Friday’s games have been posted in the games forums. It’s the start of the Christmas bonanza, with several games offered including the original Prince of Persia and it’s sequel, Aftershocked, a post apocalyptic adventure game; a strategy game called P.U.R.E. (Purify, Unify, Rebuild, Eradicate); Stronghold, another strategy game, (but not the castle sim game of the same name), and one of the Commander Keen games.
