    This is a very simple video. You can create a video like this with any video editing software. You just do a slow zoom on the images and add music.

    There are some simple Adobe After Affects templates that already contain all the zoom effects, you just have to import the images. Of course, to do that you need to have After Affects.

    To name a few, you can use Animoto, After Effect, Sony Vegas.

      You can do this for adobe premier pro.
      It's easy to use if you're expose in video editing programs.

    most video editing software can do this but the actual footage needs to be filmed at a high frames per second. the more the better. i think my gopro will do 120 per second on a lower resolution.

    Why do you guys feel some fancy software like Adobe is necessary for this?

    All you need is a basic editor, which is free, and a bunch of high-res stills.

    That's what this video is made of.

    The creator got some high resolution bee stills from somewhere, and put words over them using the editor. No big deal and certainly no fancy expensive software needed.

    The moving assassin bee at the end was nothing more than a second image manipulated over the first...in a very lame and unconvincing way.

    There's nothing expensive here. There are about 30 slides with 4 seconds on each. With the stills, and text prepared ahead of time, it would take me less than an hour to make this video. It would take longer to write the story than to make the vid.

    Any video editor with pan and zoom can do this. It's known as the "Ken Burns Affect". Search Youtube for "Ken Burns Affect" plus the name of your software.

    Camtasia is pretty good for this.

    Windows has a free, but older program called "Photo Story 3" that is good for creating videos with the Burns Affect. The drawback with Photo Story 3 is that it's limited in the aspect ratio and formats it will export as, but if you have basic video editing skills you should be able to overcome this. Also, I don't think it works with Windows 8+, but I could be wrong.

    You can get Photo Story 3 here...it says it's for WIN XP but it runs on my WIN 7 system:

    The other key to this technique is access to lots of images you can legally use.

    Windows Movie Maker Live (Free) has quite a few pan & zoom (Ken Burns) effect options - you have limited choices/control over the pan & zoom settings, but lots of different pre-configured options.

    Here's a Youtube video I found on this...


    In addition - you can add Captions in Windows Movie Maker that will allow you to place the text on each frame...including pretty decent control over how the text looks, length of time it shows as well as how the text appears and is removed.

      That seems like it would be the best answer, since it's probably easy for someone with the software to do it. It would be worth the $5.50 not having the spend the time learning how to do it.

    I believe you can use any type of video editting software.. I loke to use snagit. Or you can use Camtasia.

    They both have a free trial period and extensive training videos on youtube.

    Hope this helps..

          Thanks. But that's a full editor that requires someone who knows what they are doing. My brain is full (very small capacity) and there is no more room for other stuff. I was hoping there was a program that a novice could just insert images, words, and music and it would do all the work for you.

            Want to be a professional?

            Then you are going to have to invest your time and LEARN something.

            A few hours of learning here will pay off many times...as you see other programs. I learned on Camtasia. So Sony was no problem for me to pick up. Just a little syntax. Then animation software: very similar as it runs on a timeline.

            You don't know where you'll end up a few years from now.

            This is a problem I see rampant on this forum: unwillingness to spend even a few hours learning how to use or do something that's very useful in the long run.

            It's what separates the successful from the strugglers.

            See, for all the time you've spent waiting for someone to give you the easy answer, you could have learned the software and been on your way already with a useful skill. I'm talking a few hours, within one day.

              I am a professional (I even have a state license to prove it ), and I have learned much over the last few decades. One of the greatest lessons I learned was to know when to delegate. BTW, I am not a marketer or SEO person.

              This is a problem I see rampant on this forum: unwillingness to spend even a few hours learning how to use or do something that's very useful in the long run.
              You sound like my wife telling me to change the oil, when the fact is that I learned years ago that changing my own oil costs me a lot of money.

              It's what separates the successful from the strugglers.
              I agree, but the opposite way. The strugglers are the people trying to do everything themselves, half-assing it. The successful are the ones who delegate tasks to other people who are more proficient at it (and less expensive as well).

              See, for all the time you've spent waiting for someone to give you the easy answer, you could have learned the software and been on your way already with a useful skill.
              This is not true. I was not sitting here refreshing the thread waiting for the next post, so I haven't wasted all the time on it that you said, certainly not enough time to make good videos.

              Further, learning how to use a video editor isn't really useful skill in my line of work. It's something I would use once or twice.

              I learned this with image editing. I spent hours trying to edit a few images, going to YouTube and Google every few minutes to figure out how to do things. Then I realized that I was wasting too much time and Spent $5.50 on Fiverr to have a guy do it for me. It was perfect, better than I could ever do it.

              With that said, there are many things that I insist on doing myself.

    It is not important which software had used to make this video. You can use any video making or, editing software. You have to enough knowledge to make this video. I used the Ulead Video studio, I used the Camtasia & Window movie maker also. Thanks

    Go with Camtasia, because it's much cheaper than Adobe Premiere and Sony Vegas.

    I think you "might" be able to do with HitFilm Express, which is free.

      You can get the cheapest version Sony's Movie Studio starting at $49. And you can probably find an older version on eBay for less than that. I found version 11 for $19.99, with free shipping.
