Hi I just finished this photo slideshow/montage and would appreciate any comments on it's style/pace from the many excellent videographers and editers on this forum.

That'll work Tony!

There were some masking problems with some of your pics during the transitions. (Hard to tell as the video stuttered for me).

Not a fan of some of those transitions but I understand you need to break things up every now and then. And you used them sparingly.

Pacing was fine.

Where'd you get the clouds to make the background loop?

I see more and more people putting text on the pics in post. Never understood this as it takes time to label each photo and the viewers know who everybody is. (I'm speaking entirely from an economic viewpoint here - nothing wrong with it).

I'm sure they'll like it.

Very nice work. I didn't notice any masking problems and it played smoothly for me. What did you use to do that - After Effects?

You're right Rick about the masking on some of the transititions but I didn't think it was too noticeable so I kept them in. I can't work out how to overcome the problem?!

The clouds background I got from istock, apparently it's been used on Oprah..

I'm pretty sure the couple will like it too cos it's actually me and the wife! I was just trying out some new ideas.

Thanks Jim

It was actually all produced in Vegas, quite a simple project really. Downloaded the clouds background, a bit of keyframing using the pan/crop tool, white border and some NewBlueFX transitions.
