I've been playing with this click here and I'm quite impressed with it.
Just waiting for the bad news from the gas bill to see if I can countenance shelling out USD75.00 for a licence!
Interested to hear of anyone else thats tried or bought it.

49 squids for something that you'll use how often?
If often then fine. If occasionally then not fine :)

rdave13: have to agree, but I think it's the best quality and most veratile programme I've ever tried.
The bad news is even worse when you factor in the forex charges levied by Mastercard!

The trial is fully functional and not time limited but anything you produce has a banner at the bottom so I'll just put up with that for now.

Still interested to hear of other users opinions.

Technotiger: Thanks for pointing that out!
I rarely clock what's on the CD, presuming that most of the good stuff is reserved for the "first class" subscribers! lol
I'll have a look at it.

mimosa418: British Gas would have to give me a refund of last year's bills for me to buy that!!
...Nice though!

jack: Yes, I use Photostory 3 as well, but PixPlay seems similar to so many others with "set" transitions and effects.

DVD PixPlay is a good program - but the Freedownloadscenter (in your link) has a reputation for downloading other nasties besides the required programs. PixPlay is available from many other sites - here's one

It looks very basic but you can produce some very sophisticated slideshows with it, including music and narration. Spend a little time experimenting and its amazing what you can do.

Thers lots of advice and examples at Papajohns websites.

BT: Agreed, I have found Papajohns very interesting though I've not yet tried to use PS3 in combination with MovieMaker.
