Program / Song Suggestions for Video Montage
« on: June 21, 2020, 11:46:37 PM »
im planning a video montage for a 50th anniversary celebration. which program would be most user friendly with professional results? i heard good things about iMovie but i dont have a Mac. any suggestions appreciated. i would also appreciate input as to songs that would go well for the soundtrack, something family minded. like ill be using the chorus from "someday", "memories" from mbd, "vezakeinu"...but need some lighter family themed songs as well....

If you want something that produces very professional looking results with minimal input and decisions check out animoto.com. I've used it a couple of times and it's super easy to use. You can't do much customizing but it does a really nice job (if you want to, try movie maker instead).

It's not free but I think there's a free trial, or you can pay monthly (and cancel after the first month if you don't need it anymore).
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

not sure if i searched right one on youtube but it seems to be a nice slow song. im looking for something upbeat light even humorous- for those spaghetti on head pics.... could be a country yossi song too....

Zarah Chaya is a slow song that's good as a moving soundtrack to family-oriented material.

Maybe try "7 little kids" from Country Yossi for the spaghetti on head type of stuff?

Make sure you are not using the Microsoft app, which is the standard one for later-model Windows. It's a terrible program. Only use the actual program, which you will have to download from an independent website (Microsoft doesn't offer it anymore).

Do you have a link to it? I was looking at some point and couldn't find it.

Is that Yeshiva Boys Choir "Those were the nights"? Country Yossi actually wrote the lyrics for that song...
