FotoMagico .. Impressive

15278.png

I do a lot of photo montage videos. I do them routinely for the family DVD’s and seem to get myself enlisted quite often for other people. My wife asked me to do one for her business and I agreed to make one for my secretary’s wedding next month. After listening to Robert Lachman wax poetic on FotoMagico a few weeks ago on Surfbits #146, I decided to give it a try. My primary reason for trying it was to get a quick slideshow with the Ken Burns effect. Thirty minutes after I downloaded it, I had a slideshow done and saved, with music. Mission accomplished. Slideshows just got a lot easier.

    I make a ton of slideshows as well. I have 2 questions that maybe you can answer for me.

    1. How is this better than iMovie?
    2. I understand that you cannot shorten the audio that you add to a Fotomagico slideshow. Is this accurate?

    I am most interested in the larger question.

    Thanks in advance for any help with this!

    It is better than iMovie in that it is faster. Much faster if you are looking to do the Ken Burns effect.

    The slideshow I did just had one song to it and it did not sync with the total show (i.e. make the view time balance out so last slide hit with end of song.) It may allow this but I didn’t see how.

    I only spent about 30 minutes in the program but was impressed that it got the job done fast. Once I can come up for air from work I’ll look at it deeper.
