QuickTime slide show with Ken Burns effect - Mac Applications & Software

Hello, OK, so I'm still experimenting with my new PowerBook. I want to create a slide show out of JPEGs and export that to a QuickTime movie for posting on the web. And I want to use the fun motion transitions (Ken Burns) that's implemented so famously well on OS X. I know I can bring the pictures into iMovie, but this requires me to specify and tweak the motion settings for each picture. iPhoto has a convenient "Export to QuickTime" but unfortunately I don't think it can do the nice pans/zooms.

    Default QuickTime slide show with Ken Burns effect


    Hello,

    OK, so I'm still experimenting with my new PowerBook. I want to create a
    slide show out of JPEGs and export that to a QuickTime movie for posting on
    the web. And I want to use the fun motion transitions (Ken Burns) that's
    implemented so famously well on OS X. I know I can bring the pictures into
    iMovie, but this requires me to specify and tweak the motion settings for
    each picture.

    iPhoto has a convenient "Export to QuickTime" but unfortunately I don't
    think it can do the nice pans/zooms.

    On the other hand, if I tell Screen Effects to run its little screen saver
    slideshow with the pictures folder, it does exactly what I want... a "random"
    motion setting, alternating zoom in/out, on every picture.

    Now, if only I could capture what the screen saver is doing, into a QuickTime
    movie.

    So, help me, Mac folks: Is there another way? Maybe someone knows of an
    AppleScript that interacts with iMovie and tweaks my pictures for me? A
    util that captures the output of the screen saver? A util that inputs a
    batch of JPGs and outputs the movie I want?

    Thanks.

    iView MediaPro lets you prepare and export a slide show into a QT movie
    retaining individual and generic transitions. Haven't tried the
    transitions capabilities myself, but everything iView does, in my
    experience it does well.

    Try using iMovie instead of iPhoto.
