Application for creating video from still photos and adding sound.

Hi Everyone,

I have been making the soundtrack with audacity and using various other programs to create a "slide show video" then adding the soundtrack.

I would like to know which programs you would recommend for doing this easily and quickly.

At the moment I would really like something I could add photos to set timing and transition effects and add a sound track to each invidual image.

I have been using ToVid. See this link.

This not such a simple task. I looked at a lot of software. To my lack of understanding, at least at first, your images are converted to a vidio file, and then you use a CD or DVD authoring tool to create the final product.

I have also used a program called DeVeDe. You can have a look at it also.

There are other solutions, so see what others can offer as solutions. I'm always looking for easier, faster too.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reponse camorri. I actually just want to create a video file. I dont need to create a dvd menu or any of that. I will probably end up just putting the video on youtube.

I will try to give some more details of the apps I am using, later if this may help (I am at work at the moment)
