    I was wondering if anyone could recommend software that is good for the
    'Ken Burns Effect' ie moving image.

    TIA

    You can do that in Premiere, and probably other full-featured editors, but
    my favorite app for this function is "Imaginate" from Canopus. I refer to it
    as "Ken Burns in a Box."

    It's also pretty common in slide show builders.

    I think it was originally done on Adobe After-Effects - which I think is
    almost cheap enough for consumers right now.

    Panning/zooming a "virtual camera" around a still image. Or a real one. When
    you make a film that relies heavily on showing archival images from stills,
    keeping the camera moving is very important in keeping your work from
    looking like a narrated slide show.

    The thing where he shows a still photograph and slowly pans across it, or
    zooms in or out, etc.

    Newer editions of most software allows the user to add pretentious David
    McCullough narration to the panned still image while a piano tinkles
    "Battle Cry of Freedom" in the background.

    My suggestion:
    Try this Photo2DVD software, it can burn your photo slide show onto
    DVDs, and with many transition effects, including "Ken Burns" perfectly!

    The lastest version of Vegas even comes with a "Celebrities Looking
    For Credibility Read Historic Letters" add-on. It lets you control
    everything, right down to the length of their melodramatic pauses.

    You just haven't lived until you've heard Matt Damon reading one of
    George Washington's ordinance requisitions with 3.2 second
    melodramatic pauses. It's like history written with lightening!!

    Speaking of former Sonic Foundry software, the new Acid for Documentaries
    comes with a whole raft of Down-Home Americana Loops [tm] that make it easy
    to build folksy-sounding soundtracks out of harmonica, banjo, dobro, and
    slightly-out-of-tune upright piano patterns. And the latest version of Sound
    Forge includes a Mark O'Connor filter that takes any wav file and turns it
    into a solo fiddle tune.

    I recommend Wondershare Movie Story which is a professional software that can create DVD photo slideshows with photos, video clips and music and publish MPEG/AVI/WMV/MP4/3GP for YouTube or burn CD/DVDs.

    What it attract me is its plenty 2D/3D transitions and Ken-Burns effects.

    CD or DVD created by Movie Story can actually play in the DVD player, you can enjoy your own movie on TV.

    FlV file download from YouTube can be edit directly with Movie Story.You can not only burn flv to DVD but also edit it and create DVD menu.

    Find more details on its official website Ourpix.com.
