    Hey there

    I am planning to build some Videos for Youtube out of Picture Slideshows. I want to have the pictures animated (mean they shift a bit while they are shown) and to be able to add music.
    I found some Applications that do this easily for you (4K SLideshow Maker) but then I am not able to add text and animations of text for an Intro.

    Is there a tool that makes this things easy and straightforward or do I need to do it with a video editing software?

    As I am planing to make quite some videos it would be nice to have it as easy as possible.
    Best would also be if it's free but I'm open for paying. Also 4K output would be nice.

    My Idea is that the videos look a bit like this at the end:
    Can't post any links but if you search on youtube for the video it's: "5 Humans with real superpowers"

    Cheers

    Ok, so far I found this:

    Photostage Slideshow Producer

    It's not perfect as it is only free for personal use (but not expensive either), but it has nice transitions and effects. The only pain in th a** at the moment is, that I'm not able to change the aspect ratio of the project so that it fits my pics.

    You could try AviSynth + ffmpeg with a bit of scripting.

    i am using power point presentations to make my videos because it has very nice transitions and animations.
    once i play it and capture it from any screen recording utility like snagit and many other alternatives, my video is ready to rock. i have create hundreds of videos with this method and earning a pretty good amount from that.
    snagit is a paid software i bought from techsmith. it works great.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Thanks, I was asking myself how to get HD content out of powerpoint. Will not do for 4K but better as the measly resolutions I can get out of Powerpoint while exporting.

    Hi. I am a level 2 seller for 2 years on Fiverr. I developed a tutorial that can help you produce the video that you mentioned above. And yes, you need a video editing software to produce a custom video. And my tutorial will make it really easy to produce the video.

    Ok guys. I tried many different techniques but in the end i am sticking with the powerpoint method. I did a nice intro and outro animation that i copy. Then i add the pics and music.

    You can use google slides.

    My method is currently take 10 article headers from one website category,

    Paste the first paragraph into the slide text box,

    use photoshop to adjust the background image to the right aspect and size,

    setup transitions, and clean up

    publish and record via cam studio,

    upload
