Creating video clips requires skill and patience, plus an artistic eye. However, everyone can create a video, either for their phones or computers by using the right software. ffDiaporama Portable is an app that allows creating movies from photos and video clips.
The program comes with a clean and easy-to-use interface that gathers all vital features in the same place. In order to create a new movie, you can either load photographs or videos.
The software supports a wide range of image formats (BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, PBM, PGM, PPM, TIFF, TIF and XMB), as well as video files (AVI, MOV, MPG, MPEG, M4V, MKV, MP4, FLV, 3GP, OGV and WMV).
The software’s options are located under the “Settings” menu. Therefore, you can set the app to remember the size and position of the windows and the last output folder used. Also, the quality details for previewing the videos can also be defined.
Additional values can be set for your videos, such as title, author and language. Other options that can be adjusted regard the text and video blocks.
