PhotoFilmStrip creates movies out of your pictures in just 3 steps. First select your photos, customize the motion path and render the video. There are several output possibilities for VCD, SVCD, DVD up to FULL-HD.
The effect of the slideshow is known as “Ken Burns”. Comments of the pictures are generated into a subtitle file. Furthermore an audio file can be specified to setup the background musice for the slide show.
In contrary to other projects i know so far, PhotoFilmStrip has the opportunity to render slide show in Full-HD (1920×1080) resolution.
PhotoFilmStrip is a free, open-source application for Windows and Linux only. (Mac users, iMovie actually comes with its own Ken Burns effect for still images.) As FreewareGenius points out, it doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but it handles what it does really well. If you give it a go, let’s hear how you like it in the comments.
