    Default Cycle pictures very quickly, how to?

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie at this so please bear with me. I need to create a video where about 1000 images that are very quickly shown on the screen. I'm talking prob less then a second per picture.

    How would I accomplish such a thing? which software would support it? I'm on a mac but would use a PC if needed. iMovie does not allow me the ability to speed it up fast enough and just feels in general very inflexible.

    As a bonus, It would be nice to have them cycle within some sort of them like it would look like they are part of a picture book or something.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    Any Non-linear editing program will allow you to do this, you just need to put your images on the timeline, in succession, for the desired duration.

    I don't know your purpose, but I have a feeling you might need a bit of a re-think. 1000 images in succession with a full 1 second duration will run for over 15 minutes.

    At the minimum 1 frame per second, with an assumed frame rate of 25 frames per second, 1000 images will run for 40 seconds, which is still a lot of screen time.

    This could be cut down further by blending frames together, and if it's that fast flickering strobe effect your looking for it is a good idea to do this, as is keeping away from a constant rythm.

    David.

    The easiest way to do it in Sony Vegas Pro is

    File/Preferences/Editing

    look at: New still image length (seconds):

    and bring that rate down to whatever you desire
    then drop the pictures onto the timeline.


    BUT THIS IS ONE YOU DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
