Animoto : create videos from images

remerber Monoslideshow's transition with Ken Burns effect ?  Well seems that making videos from images has gone one step further with Animoto, a web application that creates MTV-style videos with the click of a button.

Users simply choose a song and images, and upload them through a web based ajax interface. Animoto then automatically generates a unique video for them. No two videos are ever the same.

Many of the post-production techniques that the founders used while working as producers for MTV, Comedy Central & ABC are used in Animoto's patent-pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence developed to think like an actual editor and director. The resulting video is produced in a widescreen format, containing the visual energy of a music video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer.

Animoto Productions is based in New York City with an office in San Francisco. More @ animoto.com
