Hi and welcome to the forum

. . . . Is it possible to load a project onto a memory stick/flash drive instead of a disk . . . .

Do you mean putting the video file onto a memory stick/flash drive instead of a making a DVD or Blu-Ray disc?

If you not can you give more detail of what you mean by project and what you intend to do with it on the memory stick/flash drive.

I would also like to know if the project could be saved on a memory stick/flash drive to then be inserted into a TV for showing.

Hi

. . . . project could be saved on a memory stick/flash drive to then be inserted into a TV for showing . . . .

The 'project' itself is not a video format that can be played - it is a set of instructions telling the program what is on the timeline, what effects have been applied etc.

For what you need you must export the project as a video file - the most universal format is MP4.

Once you have completed editing the project and saved it select File, Export, Video as MPEG-4 and select the required format in the drop down as shown in the image below.

  • for the US (NTSC TV system) select the MP4 xxxx 29.97p
     
  • for none US (PAL TV system) select MP4 xxxx 25p

xxxx is the video resolution you require, ideally this should be the same as any source video in the project in the project, if you have only images then match your TV resolution.

John, you asked what was I going to do with memory stick/flash drive. In the Photostory Program I was going to make a slide show and save it to a memory stick I want to use the memory stick and plug it into a computer or TV.

Thanks, BlueVette

@BlueVette

Hi

The method I detailed above is the way to do this - check what video formats your TV can play if it supports MP4 (most do) then use the appropriate mp4 export from the list in my previous comment.
