    Firehand Lightning Slideshow Replacement?

    My hobby is photography and I frequently used Firehand Lightning software for generating self-running slideshows, e.g. LakeTahoe.exe. This software is no longer available and hasn't been updated in years.

    I liked it because you could easily attach an audio file to an individual slide while simultaneously running a slideshow background audio track. I tried doing this with PowerPoint and I couldn't believe how stupid difficult this was!

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement program that would allow me to:
    1. Create a "self-running" slideshow
    2. Create a slideshow made up of both images and short video files
    3. Easily attach individual audio files to slides while a slideshow soundtrack runs in the background
    4. Create a slideshow as a .wmv file so I can burn it to DVD (using Nero) so it can be played in any DVD player
    5. I don't need the ability in this program to edit photos--I use Elements for that.

    Thanks for your help and time.

    Have a look here for a rundown of features on some possible replacements. You would only want to consider the ones with 2 or more audio track capability.

    F.U.N. downtown,

    Thanks for the information. I think I'll give ProShow Gold 6 a try.

    I appreciate your help.
