Slideshow Movie Creator is a software program which was designed in order to help users create slideshows and save them as common videos (FLV, MKV, M4V, MOC, MPG, SWF, WEBM, AVI, WMV etc.) or formats suitable for Apple, HTC, BlackBerry, Samsung and Kindle devices.
The modern-looking interface comprises a menu bar, a few shortcut buttons and a panel used to display the uploaded pictures and the transition effects between them. Furthermore, it is accessible to both novice and experienced users.
JPG, BMP and PNG files can be uploaded by clicking the “Add” button or by dropping them to the tool’s frame. Each of these items can be edited. To be more accurate, you can add text with custom font type, style, size and color to any area of the picture, rotate images, and choose a movement direction, from the built-in list.
This utility lets you add a transition effect and apply it to all photos, use a background theme and append music to slideshows. Some of the supported files are MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC and WAV. You should know it is also possible to record audio content with your microphone, as well as play uploaded songs from the main window.
Video or picture headers and trailers can be added to the slideshow, with a user-defined title, author, description and playtime, while from the settings panels you can control the slide and transition duration for the entire project.
Before starting the conversion, you can also tweak the video and audio bit rate, aspect ratio, channels, frame rate and resolution. This process does not eat too much CPU and RAM, yet its duration might fluctuate, as it depends on the number of photographs uploaded and your computer’s performance.
To sum up, Slideshow Movie Creator proves to be a handy piece of software when it comes to creating slideshows from your images. It includes an intuitive UI, a good response time and enough options to keep you occupied for a while.
