How to make slideshow into film, help needed

  sleepy01 18:14 28 Feb 2010

Hi, i work as a painter and have for the first time experimented making a timelapse film of a painting being made.

I used Irfanview and have approx 400 still pictures of the painting being made with the intention to make a time-lapse film that will play on windows media player and be uploadable to youtube etc.

Irfanview is great to play the slideshow but i dont know how to convert this into a film file. I tried putting the digi camera infront of the PC screen but the quality isnt very good so i need to record direct from PC while i run the slides on Irfanview.

Would really appreciate some help and some recommended software to do this, if anyone more knowledgable can help very much appreciated.

Hope someone can
Thx :)

BTW, as a matter of interest, my adult son is an extremely talented artist, mostly as a hobby but he does sell many paintings for some very respective amounts!

He can paint just about any subject under the sun, is not limited to any one genre.

You can burn your slideshow to a CD in Irfanview. I'm not sure if you can add sound.

You could use something like Photostory3, free from Microsoft which will allow you to add music and narration as well as transitions and pan/zoom effects. I think there is a 100 picture limit but you could do it in sections and stich them together before burning to a CD or DVD.

BT I think he wants to make a film not a slideshow he already has that

Simplest to use is Windows Movie Maker

Nice pic technotiger :), i will have to post a link to youtube when i upload mine
