|I'm not sure, but here are three things you can check. All of them are based on the fact that the style displays a lot of pictures very quickly (assuming you've got a small number in the Interval setting).
1. First, make sure that your pictures are on your hard drive and not coming from a CD/DVD drive. The hard drive has faster response time.
2. Second, check the 4th icon from the right to make sure that you've turned the synchronization of the animation timer off. It should be a solid blue around the edge and not have a grey/black outer ring. It shouldn't affect the capture to video file, but will affect watching the style in preview mode. (See note below for more on the animation timer).
3. Third, make sure that your pictures aren't too big. If you're using a 5mb camera, then even the jpg images will be 2-3mb big at full resolution. So, you might try reducing them in size.
If you had just said some of your pictures are being skipped, then I would also have said to make sure they are all valid formats for 3D-Album to use (like jpegs, bmps, etc.). This is for others viewing this posting that have pictures being skipped.
NOTE ON ANIMATION TIMER: When it's turned on, it forces your computer to keep up with the animation timing even if a few frames/pictures have to be skipped. Capture runs at a slower pace, and so there isn't usually an issue. There are other reasons that people might want to keep it turnen on, so I don't recommend turning it off for normal use.
