have a friend who is wanting to make picture slide shows with movies and transitions and be able to burn this to either dvd or vcd (preferably DVD) to view on his dvd player...need a good crossection of software that's easy to use, yet still powerfull enough to make something nice
This is a great question and I will put a couple of free tools that I have used before and the tool that is my favorite.
Microsoft Photo Story 3 [http://www.microsoft...ry/default.mspx]
Free download for "genuine" Win XP. I know it's MS, but it is a great program for making picture slide show (I don't think it can handle video clips). It is incredibly easy to use, has nice features like being able to add background music and record narration and title clips. It has output settings for NTSC DVD, but appears to only output wmv file format.
Slideshow Movie Maker [http://www.joern-thi...tm?/tools/ssmm/]
Another free tool. Not quite as user-friend as PS3, but much more customizable for transitions, allows for importing AVI video clips, and exports as AVI video.
I have used both with good results, but I tend to go to Photo Story 3 if I am a hurry and just want to get it done and if I will be using any background narration.
Hope that helps a bit.
