Photo to Movie™ is used to turn your photos into a slide show movie complete with soundtrack, titles, and graphics. You can add motion effects and other effects to the photos, choose layout and background effects, preview your slide show in real time, and render your movie to a video file.

Overview

Photo to Movie uses a timeline to represent your slide show. Each photo appears in the timeline with the transitions between photos represented as the overlap between the photos. The timeline can have a single photo track, multiple audio tracks, and multiple title/graphic tracks. The layouts for groups of photos are also represented in the timeline, as are markers for placing dynamic photo effects.
