    I just discovered Animoto and it rocks! I am part of a monthly photography email thing called photojojo (google it) and they sent me a pass for a full length video at Animoto ( www.animoto.com ). Normally it's $3 for every full length video, or $30 for 1 year of unlimited full length videos. It's free for anybody to do 30 second or less videos though. It is described as "a music video for your photos" and is very hard to explain without seeing it yourself, but it;s MUCH better than a slideshow. Here read the description I got from Photojojo.



    here is the video I made using my one-time free pass (mazdameet, girlfriend, and ski trip):

    Thats awesome, can they make it full resolution for DVD? Might be a neat idea for wedding clients.

    This would also be an awesome stand alone app. I would pay a pretty decent price for it.

    Yeah. Somewhere on their site it says "if you are uploading on to a DVD, we recommend that you resize images to be at least ' ' ' ' by ' ' ' ' pixels large." I think it's one of those features that isn't out yet, but is scheduled for later release. Good little wedding short.

    Hey,

    Just seeing this thread now. Animoto's a sponsor of TPF, so I thought I'd say hey and answer your questions. We do have DVD-Quality upgrades (and will have HD next year most likely).

    You can check our DVD-Quality at:

    - Animoto: Standard vs. DVD-Quality -

    As for your note about wanting us to be a standalone product, unfortunately that isn't possible since it takes a tremendous amount of power to render these vids frame by frame, so we have to outsource that to a farm of rendering computers (getting totally dorky/technical here) to do that.

    However, you can always burn your vids to DVD for re-sale purposes.

    Thanks! I was very pleased with it and so was the band. It's gotten some awesome feedback.

    Haha thanks for replying Animoto(Rebecca), at the time I posted this, you guys hadn't become sponsors yet(to my knowledge), and your service was pretty new and had a lot of features disabled. I was really excited to tell everyone, and now I am glad you are still doing well and I am happy to see the features have all become extensive and function quite well.

    Is that pricing old or are you still able to get individual videos for $3? I just looked on the site and the only thing I see is $40 a month or $250 a year. I would liek to do a few of these, but not enough to justify $40.
