Create a slide show movie

Expression Studio 2.0

If you are using Windows Vista, Microsoft Expression Media offers you two ways to create a movie from your slide show. You can use either the Save Slide Show as Movie feature or the Export Slide Show to Move Maker feature. For information on using the latter feature, see Create a movie using Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista only).

If you are using Windows XP, and have QuickTime installed, you can use the Save Slide Show as Movie feature.

After you install QuickTime and run the Save Slide Show as Movie command, Expression Media assembles your images into a movie, using the Slide Show settings that you specified in the Slide Show options or in the Slide Show controller, such as transition type and image duration.
