MemoriesOnTV Home Edition creates slideshows with your photos,
but with a twist: It creates slideshows suited for playing on a TV.
That way, you can distributed your slideshows to anyone, whether or
not they have a PC (or just prefer to watch slideshows from an easy
chair). It imports photos from all the major formats, and lets you
include not just photos, but videos in AVI format as well.
MemoriesOnTV includes a sophisticated set of tools for creating
your slide shows. For example, it has a timeline view that allows
you to build your slide show, including music and effects, by
dragging and dropping photos, audio files, and animation files, and
then adding effect. Use it an you’ll think yourself an auteur. It
includes enough visual effects to make you feel as if you’re Martin
Scorsese–pans, zooms, fade-ins and fade-outs, and even audio
fading so that your sound fades out or in as your photo does. When
you’re done, burn it to DVD or SVCD formats, both playable on DVD
Note that the downloadable demo version has no limitations on
it, but your slideshows will appear with a watermark. To make the
watermark disappear, you’ll have to buy either the Pro ($80) or
Home ($60) edition of the software.
