I've done slideshows of unrelated images with MM and used overlapping fade but just wondered if the effect achieved with Avid was more suited to simulated motion to achieve an effect similar to 24-30 fps when only 3 fps were being used.
I didn't use overlapping fade with the Stop Frame Animation I did as there were so many frames but maybe that would do the trick.
Why do this when video could be used people must wonder, but then again maybe not.
The thing is that Stop Frame Animations are easier to edit I've been told than video (I don't do video as such anyway) and more versatile.
In a commericlal environment it halfs the production cost of demos etc to produce a photomatix as opposed to using video motion cameras.
I've got Premiere and heard Vegas is good. Final Cut was also something I was told about but MM was easy to use if basic.
Thanks for that link though, very useful.
