Understanding Motion Types in ProShow

Both ProShow Gold and ProShow Producer allow you to apply custom motion effects to any photo or video clip in your slideshow. You can further define how your motion effect will appear in your show by selecting one of the 4 motion types: Smooth, Linear, Accelerate and Decelerate. Today I’ll show you how these different motion types work and you’ll be able to see examples of how they appear when used in a slideshow.
