    Default Building Professional photo slideshows - suggestions

    I'm looking for a Audio/Visual editor that will sync to music tracks with controllerable transitions. I'm not even sure if going to a video editor is overkill or the standard.

    Currently, i'm only working w/ photos & not video.....yet....but video may come in the LATE future....

    The main functions that I need is:
    - able to build a photo slide show on a timeline
    - timeline must have separate tracks for photo & music
    - available transitions btwn photos. eg. fade left2right, right2left, etc...
    - ability to have more than 1 photo viewable at any instant in timeline on screen
    - ability to place photos in different areas of displying screen
    - ability to have the photos move on the screen
    - all to above to preferably work in conjunction w/ each other

    I've worked w/ Avid a long time ago where this some of this can be done w/ video clips & I've tried also the MAGIX "Pictures to CD & DVD" program.

    "Pictures to CD & DVD" is close to what I need but it's lacking advanced transitions btwn photos. As well i can only show 1 picture at a time on screen.

    Example of advanced effects I'm looking for:
    Eg1 - have 5 photos on the screen
    - 1 photo in each corner & 1 photo in the middle
    - each corner photo to overlap their corners with middle photo's corner
    - have perhaps photos on from one diagonal fade in & out 1 at a time from corner to corner, then the other diagonal do the same, thus only really having 2 photos visible at all times

    - i can see this might be more possible to make one jpg with all 5 photos & apply effects or transitions to the 1 jpg....but is this the only way?

    Eg2 - same 5 photo positions as above
    - however, each photo to appear from a point in the middle & zoomOut/move to their position
    - thus 1st frames has only 1 photo visible, next has 2, next 3, 4, then all 5

    I'm sure there must be some program out there that have these capabilities....

    Thanks & Much needed....Greenie

    ulead video studio (or the complete media suite) can do this, and also can pinnacle studio plus

    Default Move, zoom & rotate Effects

    For the ULead Visual Studio or Pinnicale Studio, can it rotate photos within a screen. I don't mean just turn a photo taken 'portrait' orientation & change to 'landscape' orientation, but actually transition it from one orientation to the other?

    I have Adobe Premiere 5.5 which allow clips to be moved, zoomed & rotated simultaneously on a motion path...Does the 2 software above allow this?

    pinnacle studio can do that, but only make sure you get the "plus" version. before buying check out a demo version or if any of your friend has it.
