How To Make Video From Photos

You don’t always need to use video footage to create a video. Sometimes a collection of still images and photos can be enough. Pinnacle Studio lets you work with pictures the same way you can work with video clips - just line them up, add your transitions, and tie it all together with some music. Learn how to get started making a video with pictures and music by reading the guide below.

4. Add Music

To add music, drag one or more sound files to the music section along the bottom. Alternatively you can click the clef button in the bottom left corner of the audio bin to create a music soundtrack in ScoreFitter. As media are added, the total running time of the source material is displayed in the top-left corner of the bin. This is not necessarily the length of the resulting movie.

5. Make Adjustments

Along the right hand side, you can change the Clip Length (duration) of each clip and select whether you want to add a Pan & Zoom to your media to give your slideshow some motion.

6. Preview, edit and export

Once your happy with the setup of your slideshow, select Preview on the footer bar below the tool. The project is created and presented in a preview window. If necessary, you can return to the settings to modify your media selections.
When you click the Preview button, the media you have chosen are automatically saved in a Collection named Latest Smart Creation. If you expect to make further use of this grouping of assets, rename the Collection to prevent it being overwritten the next time you look at a SmartMovie preview
