This version add a lot of long awaited features! Quick presentation:
Audio: add several audio files.
It is now possible to use several audio files into your presentation. A new Audio tab has been added to the user interface, and now you can choose, for every slides, which audio file you want to play.

Movie Export: bigger, better, faster!
The movie exportation wizard has been also completely reworked. Movie export is now considerably faster, you can export in much more formats (like HD-1080, xVid or even Lossless raw video output) and you will be able to change all the output settings to create the exact movie file you want.
Print your slides! (and don't save a tree)
You can now print the slides of the presentation in several popular formats (slides, handouts or handouts with notes).

Oh, I forgot...
Let's take the opportunity of this new release (let's call it "Christmas Release"!) to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2011.
2010 has been a crucial year for our business, as I started to work full time on it on march 2010. Until now I don't regret this decision: it was one of the smartest decision I ever made in my entire professional life.
There is, still, a long way to go to make Slide Effect as successful as it deserve, but the sales and the feedback of users are on a positive trend, so thank to all my customers for your trust and your confidence (and your patience with some nasty bugs, too!)
Happy New Year everybody: 2011 will be a great year for Slide Effect!
