DVD PixPlay is a software that you can use to create slideshows from image and video files.
The user interface of the tool is quite friendly. The first time you run DVD PixPlay, you can run a five-step wizard to easily accomplish a task.
So, you can import media by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" function. Plus, you can view slideshow details (file count, duration, estimated size) and properties (default display time, image motion, transitions, music).
Furthermore, you can display each image with a motion effect (e.g. pan from top left to bottom right, zoom in to bottom left) and add transition effects (e.g. cross fade, fade in and out, page flip, wipes, slides).
Additionally, you can either use the soundtrack of the videos in the slideshow or replace it with your own music, as well as display captions over frames.
Evidently, all these options can be configured or reset to default. Also, you can preview results, burn one or multiple slideshows to disk, change the viewing mode (e.g. thumbnails, film strip), and more.
The application uses a moderate amount of system resources, includes tutorials with snapshots and tips, and manages to quickly complete a task while keeping a good image and sound quality.
Since DVD PixPlay is very easy to use, even by inexperienced individuals, we strongly recommend it.
