Got photos? Of course you. Most Mac users have thousands of photos stuffed into iPhoto. Making a movie of iPhoto photos is as easy as it gets. What if you want to make a movie filled with hundreds and hundreds of photos? For that, there’s this.
Still-Motion, Not Stop-Motion
When I use iPhoto to make a movie full of photos traditional methodology takes over. Drag and drop a few dozen photos into an album.
Select the photos and export them as a movie. Badda bing, badda boom, done. The only real problem is selecting which photos to include in the movie.
That’s where Briefly changed how I made movies from photos.
Briefly is a still-motion video app that takes hundreds and hundreds of photos and creates a movie.
It’s not stop-motion. It’s still motion. A photo movie from Briefly is what the name implies. Each photo is displayed on the screen briefly– briefer than brief– before moving to the next photo.
Briefly works with a bunch of photos from your Mac, or photos from Flickr or Instagram.
Briefly does a few things to make the whole movie making experience a bit easier. It creates movies up to 1080p, automatically chooses the best screen resolution based upon the smallest photo in the group (no black borders).
You don’t have to worry about transitions or effects or filters, either. There are none. Drag and drop photos onto Briefly, add a soundtrack from iTunes, and click the Create button. A few seconds later you have a video of the photos.
Briefly is sociable, too. It has built-in options to upload a finished photo movie to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and Flickr without leaving the app.
