Smooth pans and zooms on hi-res still images, direct from your Avid's Timeline


MovingPicture allows documentary and industrial filmmakers to pan and zoom on high resolution images (up to 8,000 by 8,000 pixels), ala "Ken Burns."

Rather than use using complicated image compositing software or primative motion control features in many editing systems, MovingPicture takes high-resolution scanned images and allows for beautiful and easy to create pans and zoom moves directly from your editor's timeline.

MovingPicture is very simple to use. The image appears on the screen. Dragging and sizing a framing box icon on top of this image changes the view, adding key frames onto the timeline.

Since you can preview the motion in real time without any rendering, the design process is very rapid. All motion paths are smooth, splined, and tapered.


Easy to use and learn - Fast intuitive user interface with real-time preview of moves and full image rotation and 3D Camera for spins and skews.

Silky smooth moves - All motion paths are smooth, splined, and tapered. Complex moves on curved or straight paths and competely controllable ease-ins/outs.

Runs as a plug-in to your Avid - MovingPicture is an AVX2 plug-in compatible with all Avid editors, Mac and Windows.There are no huge movie files to import, and the moves can be instantly changed and saved with the show.

High resolution images - Handles images up to 8,000 by 8,000 pixels with 32-bit full color sub-pixel rendering and alpha channel support.

Truly cross-platform - Works in PAL, NTSC, SD, HD, and 24P. MovingPicture is available on all popular platforms: Windows (2000, XP, 7, 10) and Macintosh OS X (up to Catalina). You can even offline on one platform and seamlessly online on another.

Advanced features - Motion blur, mulitple processor support, contrast/brightness controls, and automatic video-safe color adjustment.

Inexpensive - Only $249 per system.
