Editors' review

More powerful than its simple interface suggests, StillMotion PE is a very capable tool for creating media-rich slide shows. You select images individually or by the folder. They appear in the main application window, where you can drag and drop them into the order you like. With the toolbar-based interface, you can rotate and crop images, add labels and sound, correct contrast, and adjust brightness. You also can apply transition effects including Spin, Wipe, Dissolve, and Zoom. Output options include autoplaying a CD, a screensaver, a Flash movie, and a self-playing EXE file, all of which are viewable without special software. StillMotion PE also offers five levels each of video and sound compression, for fine-tuning the size of the output file. Our only major complaint was with the unacceptably slow performance of the included Flash movie player utility. Nevertheless, we can recommend this straightforward, reliable slide-show utility for home use.

    "Beware of ImageMatics un-advertised policies!"

    June 27, 2014   |   By Guesting987654321

    Version: ImageMatics StillMotion PE 1.0.2341

    Pros

    The program works fine as long as they honor the license you bought.

    Cons

    When they no longer support their program. They lock you out of using your program that is fully paid for. Their software/program is designed that way (I found out).

    Summary

    I bought the PE and Pro single license. I was very content with the performance of the software program until.... The only problem I didn't like (after having the experience that they conveniently didn't tell me about) that if you were to install it on another computer (My old computer died) you had to re-contact Imagematics (in itself is a major issue? just read the other reviews on other sites) so they could reset their system/url to reissue my license code (that I've already paid for twice).

    Well, I found out now that they no longer support PE or the Pro for which I didn't mind, I just wanted my software/program unlocked. I didn't want help from them that required support, I just wanted them to fix their URL site. Their site ONLY authorizes my program (THEY DESIGNED) to re-initialize. If you remove the software from one computer and want to install it on another computer, you are now SCREWED! After all, it's already paid for. They refuse to help me? So much for the license. Their programs are setup to go out to their site to confirm your license when first installed on any computer. If they change their site information for your program, YOU'RE SCREWED! It works till they don't support it. I've had many programs that were not supported (after a time) but you could still use it since you paid for it.

    For those that might be looking for a program you can count on. I now would say stay clear of IMAGEMATICS. The license is only good as long as they decide so.
    My other advice would be never, never, never buy a program that requires their program to contact the company's website for authorization to work. If so, then they got you!
    If you can't simply install the license code into the program at home, etc. Then BEWARE! They can decide at anytime to make your program useless.
