Topic: Video slideshow shows video in between transitions
Hi, I've been having quite a lot of issues with the new 2020 version. My most recent problem is that if I play a slideshow over a music video, in between the transitions of the different slideshow videos, i am still seeing the music video I am covering in the background. Is there anyway to fix this to only show the slideshow when its activated?

seen a few other ask same, maybe the Slideshow plugin should have a "set black background" in the effect settings (so that its black background during transitions)
(also useful for example if the slideshow photo does not fill the whole video frame)

For now, you can map the custom slider in skin to turn down video (aka, fade the video to black) with the action :
deck master video_level
That will do the trick ;-)

hey, thanks for your quick response. Sounds like it will work until it hopefully gets that update. However (I know this is gonna sound dumb) I can't seem to find how to make a custom slider. i can make custom buttons, but i cant make a slider. this is what im looking at.

That's the pad editor, not the button editor.

I see you use old skin, but should be somewhat similar, and hopefully understood by manual above
(and if not, switch the modern default skin, perhaps ;-) )
