"We are very excited by the level of enthusiasm that BoinxTV has created since we shipped it about 6 months ago," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software.

Boinx Software releases FotoMagico 3

"The magic of storytelling is the driving force behind the development of FotoMagico. The narration audio track is therefore a natural extension to the tool set. As is the support for video now that many digital cameras record movies as well as still images. Both were top among the feature requests" says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software.

"FotoMagico 3 has the features we need to create high quality presentations in a timely manner. It is the best software we have found to allow us do that," says Jon Golden, Technical Producer of the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia.

FotoMagico 3 makes it easy for digital photographers to tell their story with images, movies and audio. FotoMagico has been completely re-written to create the foundation for new sophisticated features for version 3.0 and beyond.

Advanced storytelling

Playing nicely along the existing photographer’s workflow, FotoMagico 3 provides direct access to the libraries of iPhoto, Aperture or Lightroom libraries (Pro-version only). Mix high-resolution video provided by current camera models such as the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EOS 500D (Rebel T1i) or Nikon D90 and Nikon D5000** seamlessly with images. Movies can be animated like image slides without re-encoding. The possibility to define the visible area of the clip with in and out points makes laborious preparations in external movie editors obsolete. The improved storyboard offers in-place functionality and gives hints to further speed up the authoring process.

Audio is greatly enhanced in FotoMagico 3 Pro with three "intelligent" audio tracks dedicated for music, sound effects and narration. Each track has its own settings for Locked Timing and Ducking. The new built-in audio recorder makes it easy to add narration, while the presentation is playing. Audio Ducking automatically lowers the volume of all other audio tracks while the narrator is speaking.

Presenting the professional way

The new Instand Slideshow Assistant helps photographers to create pleasing presentations with even fewer clicks. The assistant takes care off all settingsand is a good starting point for further customization.

A fullscreen presentation can now be conveniently remote controlled with FotoMagico Remote for iPhone & iPod touch. FotoMagico Remote provides remote control and a teleprompter right in your palm. Speaking notes and visual feedback of the duration of the current slide on the screen are useful aids for a professional live performance. With FotoMagico Remote you are free to walk around the stage in front of your audience while narrating your slideshow. FotoMagico Remote will be available separately at the iTunes App Store.

FotoMagico 3 Home

To make storytelling more affordable for hobbyist photographers, Boinx Software offers a Home version for just $29. With powerful authoring capabilities beyond iPhoto it is easy to mix photos and movies to create inspiring shows for friends and family.

Boinx Software invites photographers to meet the developers of FotoMagico and learn all about the new features of FotoMagico 3 in our free live webinar on May 19th, 2009, 16.00 UTC (6pm GMT/DST). More informations at boinx.com/webinars.
