I am creating a holiday video of our recent (7000km) trip through Poland and Europe. We travelled everywhere by road (I enjoy driving )
Between each group of (slideshow) photos I would like to show the roads on which we travelled by "highlighting" the road(s). I would like this highlight to be progressive, ie start at the departure point and gradually/progessively extend this highlight along the road we travelled until the highlight reaches a destination. (the next lot of photos).
I have thought about doing this by using an image that includes the route between the places and manually drawing a line (step by step) along the road(s), and repeatedly saving/capturing each "step" image (to a new image of course) so that I can then create a *video* from these images to show the progressively highlighted road.
Unless I do many captures, the route display will look "jerky".
Is there a better way?
I have the following resources avaialble...
Microsoft Autoroute (roads of Europe and Polnd)
Google Earth/Maps (of course)
Roxio EMC 10
Paintshop Pro X, X2
AFAIK the mapping software above does not allow the road to be highlighted progressively, but just draws the route on road as a completed hightlighted route.
Thank you for any suggestions
