Fun for Digital Imagers
StillMotion Creator is an essential tool for any digital photographer. You can quickly and easily make exciting slideshows and movies to show off to the world. The created animated movies (Movies) are produced as Flash SWF files. This is the most compatible animation and video file format supported for Internet applications. Over 98% of all browsers in use can support Flash!
Super Low Bandwidth or High Video Quality
ISMC animations, when saved as SWF files have video movie quality, require a tiny fraction of the storage space and bandwidth associated with traditional video files. In fact for ISMC Movies without sound the total file size is equal to the source imagery size plus about 10-12 bytes per frame. A full minutes animation can require only 600 bytes more than what it would take to show the still image! What this means to you is the ability to deliver the full impact of movies without the drawbacks of long load times associated with large files and the compatibility issues encountered with video file formats. Load times and download issues are a major cause of loosing site visitors
If you want AVI files for your specific application, StillMotion Professional can produce high resolution video output suitable for broadcast and commercial video applications. Internet AVI and professional video formats are created from the same Movie file for quick and easy content repurposing
