I want to create a video as in the link below, the effect I want to create is that of a camera moving over a collection still photos and briefly pausing on each one:

Youtube Link to video - iit Madras saarang teser 2009 - India

Can anyone suggest me which tool I can use to create such video?? I have some images only. How can I achieve this kind of path navigation effect?

PS: Provide some video links created by those tools you are suggesting, so that I can close this Question based on that (and upvotes).

    The video you linked to was probably created in one of the software packages below. But it's impossible to tell from a video which tool it was created in. – stib Jan 21 '15 at 15:16
  • @stib Thanks. I am deciding to go with after effects. – Dipak Jan 21 '15 at 17:08

After Effects could certainly do what you want, as could Apple Motion (only for Macs though). If you're on a budget you might want to look at something lower cost - or free:

  • Natron is an open source free compositor, that will be able to do that effect
  • Blender - as well as being a 3D animation package it has a compositor too

is the technique of combining images and video, so if you want to research more, what you need to search for is compositing software.

  • +1 for Blender :) – YoMismo Jan 21 '15 at 8:32

After Effects is a good, reasonably priced solution. If you're not on a tight schedule and on a tight budget, The Foundry is releasing a noncommercial version of their Nuke compositing platform, which is much more powerful than After Effects, sometime soon.
