LR Classic: Slideshow Module - exported slideshow Videos are stuttering between image transitions

I have used the slideshow flawlessly over the past 4 years, until recently. Now, even after a restart, uninstall, and reinstall (as per Adobe tech support), creating a new .plist file, and even creating a new catalog, I cannot generate a slideshow without glitches, skips, and stutters between images. The first minute to 1:30 is usually fine, then the jumping begins.  I have tried making the crossfades shorter, or not at all, and making them longer. Still have the glitches.

 

My slideshows are between 300-350 images, and the end video is usually 6-7 minutes long. My Catalog has 23k plus pictures, but I had a similar catalog last year and had no slideshow issues. I have tried creating a new catalog containing only the 300 photos for the slideshow and still get the glitches and stutters. 

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hey, @jimanness. Welcome to the Lightroom Community. I'll help you figure this out. I've checked the support case history.

 

Try these steps:

  • Use images with uniform dimensions (only landscapes or portraits) in the slideshow as a test.
  • You can also try to clear the DynamicLink Manager (it handles video playback in Lightroom) by following these steps:

    For macOS, delete the following on your system: 

    • /Users/<UserName>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/dynamiclinkmediaserver
    • /Users/<UserName>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/dynamiclinkmanager (if exists)

      Delete the following to clear Video Cache:
    • /Users/<UserName>/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video/Media Cache
    • /Users/<UserName>/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video/Media Cache Files

     

Restart your computer, and then try to create a slideshow again, and let me know if that works.

Thanks!
Sameer K

Sameer,

Thanks so much for the reply!  I will give this a try.  I tried the online support with Adobe, but we got disconnected 20 minutes or so during our remote session and could not reconnect with them. 

ONE update to add - a colleague suggested that I try do export the same show on another machine. I have an intel-based MacBook Pro and WAS ABLE  to export a clean, smooth version. It is not a permanent solution on my end, but perhaps the difference is specs can add some clarity?  Here are the specs for the MacBook Pro that exported the successful version:

As a further update, I worked with an Adobe tech and by checking the "open with Rosetta" box in the "get info" for Adobe Lightroom Classic, we eliminated the skips and staggered transitions.
