picture2movie for Mac
picture2movie is a lightweight Mac OS X application that enables you to easily create movies using your own images. The workflow consists of a few simple steps that require you to import the image folder, set the frames per second and then opening the video.
The application features an extremely easy-to-use main window that occupies only a small portion of your screen. As mentioned previously, working with picture2movie is a breeze and producing a slideshow movie takes only a few clicks.
picture2movie can process hundreds of JPG or PNG images contained within a folder. The output file is a MOV clip of a custom FPS. Moreover, besides creating slideshows, you can use the app to make timelapse videos, photo book clips, security monitor footage and more.
After selecting a picture folder and the FPS of your choice, the application will display a window where you can monitor the progress. When the movie is complete, a beep sound can be optionally played and the resulting MOV clip can be opened with Quicktime or any other player, of course.
Additional features include a built-in Tips section that explains how you should use the app to create optimized movies. Moreover, the frame rate settings allow you to select a minimum of 0.03 FPS and up to 100 FPS, and the images using alpha channel are partially supported.
To sum things up, the picture2movie app is a simple solution to converting hundreds of images into a movie file. It delivers a simple workflow, fast conversion process and the amount of frames per second is adjustable. On top of this, the price / value ration seems reasonable.
