    No tutorials in other host applications. Try making the photos use in the slideshow smaller. No need to have 8K pictures if you are working in a 720P sequence for example. 200 pictures indeed is a large project, it will take a lot no matter what.

    So I created a 20 minute long montage containing roughly 200 pictures. I sent the sequence to compressor, used a DVD preset and let it go……it took 46 HOURS. Is something wrong?

    Tried seeing if maybe it would be faster in AE, but couldn’t figure it out. Same for Motion. No tutorials available for those programs?

    does this work with FCPX?

    Hi, great stuff but I have a problem. Maybe I’m doing something wrong. I’ve done “everything” exactly like in the video. But when I drag the video from the viewer to the timeline, I get the default pictures. I already chose mine, and still I see the default pics in the timeline. What am I missing?? THANKS!

    thanks! this is what I stared to do, so will carry on…

    you can have multiple different transitions, if you create multiple different instances of the plugin on your timeline.

  9. niclasbahn

    just create multiple instances of the plugin on your timeline.. each with the transition that you want.

  10. MurielleWeston

    is it possible to have different transitions within the same photo montage?

  11. MurielleWeston

    can you mix transitions within 1 slideshow?

    you will have to extend the length of the generator in Final Cut. I can’t add links to youtube comments, but I am sure you can find out how to do this by googling and or looking at the Final Cut manual.

    one quick question…. i am using photomontage and when i add my photos (aprox. 90 photos) it doesn’t include all of them when i watch them in the time line. i don’t know why? i change the photos duration and the transition but i just don’t know why it doesn’t include all of the picture. Can you help me?

    thank you.

    @naoufalcr7 thx 🙂

    Yes, but you will have to use the whoosh transition, which comes as part of FxFactory Pro.

  18. keebler69

    very, very cool. is it possible to see the overall duration for all the photos you’ve selected?

  19. KyleScottTekiela

    Looks great but can you add transitions to clips (Video or Photos) on your timeline instead of generating them? For example, I love the whoosh effect and use the native “Push” effect in FCP often to transition between video clips. Can i drag and drop the “Whoosh” in between clips?
