Has anyone used the Photopia Creator app (link: https://photopia.nl/free-trial/ )to make slideshows from photos and video clips on the Mac?
A photographer friend has successfully used this app to make many slideshows on a Windows PC. The Photopia.nl support forum indicates that the software has been available for the Mac for at least 3 years. After downloading and installing the app (macOS 3-week trial version), I attempted to create a slideshow on my Mac Studio (M1 Max, 64 GB RAM and 4TB SSD) without success. 80 photos/video clips and an audio clip imported successfully, but the app hangs up (displaying rotating “beachballs”) when attempting to “build” the slideshow. Is it possible that I might need something like Rosetta 2 for this app to run?
If other Mac users have had success with this app I will wait for the developer’s response to my inquiry and continue the attempt to use the app. If not, I will try to use another app such as Fotomagico Pro or even learn to use Final Cut Pro. I used Fotomagico Pro successfully a couple of years ago when it was available on Setup. It is no longer available on Setapp, so a subscription would be required (similar cost to Photopia Creator).
