Being British don't you just hate it when developers put "English - United States" but not "English - United Kingdom" its our bloody language and the American's don't even spell it right half the time.

Umm, apart from everything that's already be said here what TF is ...
"Visual options disabled due to incompatible temporal settings"
... supposed to mean (when using the Dynamic option)? Online Adobe flash 'help file' is useless.
The whole thing feels ancient and amateurish.

Once again, registration number included does not work, claims it is invalid. Not even going to bother with them since by time they address this, give away time will be over. Sucks!

I could literally count the pixels in the output video and that was at the highest resolution. If you're not going to make HD available then you may as well toss the program in the garbage like I just did.

In case it helps at all...
If you're running Windows 10, with the Fall Creators Update Microsoft revamped the built in Photos app, turning it into Story Remix, a few steps beyond the old Movie Maker that came with Win7. While it's not a full fledged video editor, & some FX require an Ofc 365 subscription, reviews have tended to be Very positive. Creating a slideshow type video can be as simple as browsing to a folder with your images, & letting the app do the rest, or you can be more hands-on -- "For example, editing only images, the tools available will include Duration, Filters, Text, and Motion. However, if you're editing a video (or images and videos), the set of tools will include Trim, Filters, Text, Motion, and 3D effects."

windowscentral[.]com/how-start-using-photos-story-remix-experience-windows-10

If you're not running Windows 10, or you are, but haven't upgraded to the Fall Creators Update yet, PhotoToFilm *might* work well enough for you. The main problem is DVD video being the max frame size, as reported by TK in the comments. That pretty much limits you to running the videos you produce in a window on your PC/laptop [or maybe on a phone in portrait mode] rather than full screen. And in that case it'll probably be fine. You will want to pay attention to the codec you install & use [see videohelp[.]com for a selection], since that can have a great effect on the final quality [you might want to try the x264 VFW codecs].

DVD video can be watchable on a HDTV at 1080p, mainly because the constant motion distracts your eyes from the low rez picture. Since stills lack that motion, except during transition FX, their low rez is all too apparent.

Finally, if you use PhotoToFilm, do keep an eye out for the aspect ratio issues common to DVD video frames... It gets complicated, but the very short version is that a 640 X 480 picture on your PC *should* get stretched into a 720 X 480 video frame. Then when you play the video, the player *should* stretch things back to their proper proportions. Problem is the "should" parts. The stretching doesn't always happen, or happens when you don't want it to, or doesn't work like it's supposed to.

Installation in Win10-64 Pro.

Installation and registration, easy:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/evl4ll6ryxpq7z8/Registratie.png
The main-screen is not resizeable:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rceysp7dfrydfw6/Hoofdscherm.png
After loading some photo's the sorting and removing photo's is not easy, too small:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/t46hcgl4x93jqz4/SorterenWissen.png
Make a good selection of photo's before loading:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/wvlp2ustbx2gqcs/FotoLaden.png
In this Windows there is a choice of 4 codec's:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/b4vyjoeq4p7yd5q/VerdereInstellingen.png
And the max resolution is 720*480 // 720*576:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pr2cp37vooqnutm/MaxResolutie.png
And I did download some 4K photo's:

between 4,5 and 7,1 Mb:

So it's essentially a slideshow maker. Why not call it that.

Installed W-10 OK, the registration is easy click the ? and the registration panel pops up.
Good tutorial. Program is rather like a slide show, I think, but have not used it. Had to hunt for the program in my menu but found it under KC Software general heading. Worth a try

Doesn't even permit HD (720p) let alone FHD (1080p) or UHD (2160p) video production! Far too much detail loss in the produced video as a result.

From kyles change log page the last time a resolution was added was:

PhotoToFilm - 2.7.2
Released 2007-08-05
0000334: [New Feature] DVD resolution (720 x 480) support (Kyle_Katarn)

and the highest resolution offered is 720x576p (I assume non-interlaced)

All the rest of the work seems to be license enforcement related and bug fixes and some gui rework but no significant work done on the core operations since 2007 above!
Can't even define aspect ratio to wide screen instead of native pixel aspect ratio!
Appears to have stalled part way through video generation... and log shows

Single Frame mode : Yes

even though on pressing Expert mode the Single Frame mode is unchecked.

I am unsure but I suspect that opening the log file from the "?" menu may have caused the encoding to stall ... or then again the progress bar has moved but the preview window is what has stalled by the look of it.

Thanks but no thanks.

Can this app be used to produce an mp4 which displays a single jpg image for the duration of the mp3 audio? Perhaps the developer can confirm.

Reply   |   Comment by Colin  –  6 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-4)

Colin, no MP4 output, (but MPEG4 encapsulated in AVI)

Reply   |   Comment by Kyle  –  6 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Colin, no it only produces VFW compatible AVI, apparently not even directshow compatible AVI's so limited to 2Gig AVI if that really is the case. Some additional information, on completion it also offers to burn and make a DVD in the pop up box as well as play and open folder but it does NOT burn or make a DVD but offers to download other products to perform those operations, one of Kyles and one by a 3rd party which kyle gets an affiliate referal fee for and that product includes a slideshow maker more advanced than this and can output to mp4 in HD and FHD... Note the free version of this is crippled in that it watermarks all output with a big UNREGISTERED VERSION graphic which is NOT mentioned on their website so it is NOT a free version but simply a trial version with unusable output and not the "All features" as described on KC website.

It also does not offer an "option" to just display a picture as long as the audio track BUT you can set slide duration to any value up to 60000ms (60 seconds) and by only including a single picture you will get it displayed for as long as the single mp3 file. If you want to include a playlist of audio tracks you'll need to join the tracks together into a single mp3 file. To get an mp4 file you'll need to convert the resultant AVI file using any number of free or paid converters like Xmedia recode etc.
