After being inspired, I took at look at the canopus imaginate trial. I made the pinboard in paintshop pro, imported it to imaginate, exported and imported to Premiere, added a few transitions and a vignette and bob's your uncle. I was just playing, so excuse the less than adequate movement, but creating the camera movement was so much easier than using Premiere. There's a few downsides, but I'll tell you more later!
