Movavi Slideshow Maker helps you create your own slideshows, which may include not only static images but video footage and audio as well. The application has a neat elegant interface with a dark theme. However, it may have a rather steep learning curve for beginners, which is why the availability of a very detailed online user manual is so welcomed.
It is excellent that the tool provides two use modes: Wizard and Manual, which differ not only in their usability but available features as well. Both modes respond to the workflow typical of creating a slideshow project, which would usually include importing resources, organizing them, adding effects and exporting. In Wizard mode, you are taken through a series of steps to successful completion of the slideshow. In Manual mode, in turn, the most important element is the timeline, which lets you arrange the imported items as you desire.
Good news is that this app supports importing various types of media resources, like video, images and audio. In this respect, there are sample videos you can freely use, which are downloadable from the developer’s site. Likewise, you can also import those contents from files in many formats. Finally, the tool lets you record video or audio directly from your webcam or microphone respectively.
Another important part of generating your slideshow is using transitions (more than 100). Fortunately, the tool comes with a pack of beautiful transitions that create really nice effects. Similarly, it is possible to use a background and add titles and captions (over 40 available). more
