Itâ€™s a new clip animation from Japan, and the experience is akin to watching Flash animations. The FrameFree Studio software offers a new way to animate still pictures through their own pixel matching method. It can automatically generate video clips from still images, including high resolution files, and supports JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF files, as well as MP3, WAV, AIFF, and AU audio formats.
For example, the still picture below can show the articulating LCD screen rotate and fold to the back while its zoom lens can jut out and in. Optionally, you can have audio to play with the video.
FrameFree makers say users can manage the video with only a few photos, called the key frames, through a drag-and-drop method on a timeline. The FrameFree Studio interpolation engine then takes over to automatically create the video clip while allowing the user to change the final product.
FrameFree Studio is aimed at website developers and advertisers who wish to generate videos from still photos. It is available for about $108.
