Editors' Review


SpiceFX for Movie Maker provides a simple set of photo effects. By creating a moving set of filters, it's an entirely different type of photo filter.

The program's helpful interface made it a cinch to operate. Thanks to its onscreen instructions and very visual layout, we never felt compelled to visit the online Help file for instructions. While the idea of applying various photographic masks and filters didn't initially sound like anything earthshaking, we were impressed by this program's collection. We could apply various shapes, fades, pans, zooms, and other effects with an impressive amount of depth and control. When we were done, our static picture was now an entertaining two-second minimovie integrating these nifty motion-centric effects. While the end product was saved in the mysterious .smdf file type, we could certainly see it being a great way to add flair to a boring slideshow. SpiceFX for Movie Maker also offers an intriguing feature that allows you to blend two images together, also in a two-second movie format, and also fun to watch. Overall, this program does a great job of adding something new to the fairly commonplace world of photo filters.

SpiceFX for Movie Maker applies a watermark to saved files during its trial period. It installs desktop icons without permission and leaves Start Menu items after uninstalling.

"A lot of good effects."

July 13, 2009  |  By cloud_castle

Many good-looking effects for various needs. I like almost all transitions. Most filters are very good and useful too. You can adjust and make own "wizard" effects and titles.


Some filter effects are interesting, but too "special" for usual home videos. And some of these are a bit slow in preview.


Pan/zoom wizard is a great tool for these who work with photos. You can position rectangles over the objects in your image and prepare multi-step pan and zoom in a single custom effect. Together with custom accent and text effects you can prepare very sophisticated slideshow. I think the ability to make custom effects is a big advantage over built-in drag-and-drop only effects.
I will be happy to see more effects, especially correction and cosmetic effects customizable too.
