Topic: Slide animation effects - explained in a simple way!

The bunch of animation settings available in SmartSHOW 3D may be confusing for novice users. We've prepared a written tutorial and a video showing how to add animation, step by step. Learn what keyframes are, what types of motion you can use, and how to create fantastic effects using mask animation.

Read the tutorial...

The mask animation looks cool. I'm going to use it in my projects, thank  you!

Re: Slide animation effects - explained in a simple way!

Nice effect, looks cool with couple of images fading in and out simultaneously

Re: Slide animation effects - explained in a simple way!

A moving mask applied to text is a new discovery for me! Thanks for the idea!

Masking is very great addition, so you don't have to mask your photos in some other program like PS or GIMP, you don't need to make additional moves

Of course you can! You need to save your slideshow as an AVI or MP4 video and upload it to YouTube.

Hi Linda, what exactly do you need help with - how to create an AVI / MP4 file or how to upload to YouTube?

Re: Slide animation effects - explained in a simple way!

Very helpful, thank you.

Re: Slide animation effects - explained in a simple way!

This is a great program, however, the tutorials are more like intros to what it can do.  Novice/beginners (like myself), we need in depth.  I use to have a program that included "interactive" tutorials where it walked you through and you did the procedures as it guided you. 

There's just so much stuff, it's overwhelming

Hi JudyT,

Thanks for your feedback! I'll send the word to our guide makers.

Also, you can always post a question here, on our forum, and together with the users, we will do our best to give you a detailed guide on this or that feature.

Judy, hi. I am using this wonderful software as well. What you can do - while watching the video-tutorial - put the video on hold each time  and practise  your own pictures. I am doing it all the time
