Smooth motion video

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term smooth motion video is used in New Zealand to describe the end result of panning, zooming and sequencing a set of still images in such a fashion as to cause the process to become filmic via use of a video editing programme rather than the more common slideshow software.

The smooth motion video or "smoothie" is more often than not converted into an .flv file and uploaded onto a website.

The crafted smoothie may have a voiceover and even relevant promotional text and mostly contains a music soundbed.

Duration may vary and the intro and outro spots are quite often used as front and back bookends which serve as station ID and contact panels.
