انظر هنا الآن As of August 14th apparently traditional slide shows will be a thing of the past. Animoto combines your photos and music and creates a pretty nasty trailer-like video. Their competitive edge comes from their super secret AI technology which somehow determines how to display your photos according to the music.
لماذا لا نحاول هنا I'm going to go through the process of creating a video right now because I'm pretty jazzed to see what it can do. So far their site's interface is awesome. I hardly realize I'm using it - it's so well laid out.
مرتبطة هنا The only difficult part has been trying to figure out how to get music off my iPod to upload to this thing. So the audio file is uploading now, I'm curious to see how they plan on creating a 30 second clip from a 2:30 long mp3 file.

I like the simplicity but unfortunately, when I try to play my song, I hear nothing. I imagine it probably works fine for everyone else, but check one up for moderate glitches so far.

Looks like they're planning on making these videos available for 1) the iPhone 2) download 3) a video iPod & 4) DVD/CD, at this point this means it's only sharable online. The bloggers and MySpace kids are going love this.

arbeta hemifrån montering I have an update: I can't stop watching my video. I can't pinpoint it but the combination of music with the graphics + the transition effects are DEAD ON. Whatever technology they're using is unreal.

I wonder if they could integrate this technology with the Flickr API and just tell it to go remix whatever search. I'm pretty sure they can pull photos from your Flickr account but I'm not sure if they could do a search term.
Closing update: Their full length videos are $3 each or you pay $30 for the year for unlimited videos. $30 isn't bad considering the potential viral impact of this service. It'll be interesting to watch how long the novelty will last once everyone starts using it. Bottom line is the videos are incredible. Regardless of the novelty, everyone will experience the initial shock and start racing to upload their photos.
