    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

What kind of video editing software is available that is easy to use? I want too have stills with about 2 second intervals, and eventually go to full video. I also want to have music in the background. I have no idea if this is even possible.

I'm finishing up my Corvette engine swap into my S10, and want to have a flashy reveal.

iMovie will easily do this and probably is already installed on your Mac. If not, you should be able to download it from the app store. Are you really still running OS X Lion (10.7) as shown in your signature? I don't believe the current version of iMovie (10.1.14) is compatible with anything before macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave), so hopefully you already have an older version of iMovie installed.

Now, it's been a while since I've used older versions of iMovie, but I think the general process is about the same:

1. create a new project
2. drag and drop media (photos, audio, video) into the media section of the project
3. drag media from the media section to the video timeline, and adjust the length of media by dragging either end (audio will be placed underneath photos or video so they can play simultaneously
4. export the project to a video file that can be uploaded to YouTube or otherwise shared

Thanks for the reply...I've upgraded the OS as far as it will allow if I remember correctly. I'll have to give this a try.

This is the victim...



This is the motivation...

Thanks. It's a '96 S10 SS. Lowest production year of the 4 year run...1240 made. Bought it new. Hopefully it will get fired this week..then it's just a bunch of detail work.
