I'm working on making a music video where I want to have a slide show of pictures transition very quickly, close to .1 sec per picture, and then add this slides show to a project in iMovie.

Would anyone know how to go about doing this? Any other software I might need?

I just tried creating a quick clip of an image in iMovie 09 and the low limit was 0:05 fps, which is longer the .1 seconds I believe.

Perhaps Final Cut could do it, or one of the other third party slide show or video editors.

Oddly, iStopMotion might be usable for this, but it keeps track of every image individually, so you'd have to import the image more than once, or maybe duplicate it.

Keep in mind that .1 second may be too fast for applying transitions like dissolves between each image because on a 30fps (29.97fps for NTSC) video, that is only 3 frames. The tool you'd use would have to allow use of a single frame from each scene for its transition.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
