Recently, I have been looking at a way I can show more of photos of Japan as videos for those people who follow me on YouTube. I found a service by Animoto that allows you to automatically create videos and add music tracks that have been copyright cleared in their collection.
The results are probably not as good as if you spent a few hours manually organizing frame transitions and synchronizing music, but I think for an automated system it gives a fair level of quality.
The music is by Mysti Mayhem and the song is called Dance.
I would like to spend some time putting together some manual videos as well. With the automated system I could probably show people more of Japan rather than waiting until I have a spare moment to manual edit something.
Let me know what you think of the video? Do you like the format of the pictures. Should I try to include a few small video clips (5 second scenes) inside the video? What sort of music is best? I would like to find some Japanese music that is copyright authorized to be used in videos. Does anyone know any good Sites.
