Crossing Paths, StylePack 4

If you’re ready to break out of the monotony of a one image per slide show, add some excitement by using a multi-image montage effect. They’re great for introducing a new section of a slideshow, as an opening, a finale, or anywhere you want to add a little liveliness and surprise to the flow.

ProShow has a variety of multi-image montage FX built-in and an even wider selection available in ProShow FX packs. Check out a round-up of some of our favorite multi-image montages below.

1) Filmstrip Sequence 1 – StylePack 2

The Filmstrip effect starts off with a movie projector feel with a black & white flickering film sprocket image and transitions into a color filmstrip.

2) Floating Depth Montage Glow – StylePack 5

3) Scatter Light 1 Montage – StylePack 6

This montage features a series of three images with subtle shadow advancing from a light background of numerous scattered duplicates.

4) Scattered Density – StylePack 2

This montage is perfect if you’re looking for a lot of movement and colors. A single image appears, recoiling toward the center, then exploding into a complex array of images that move continuously in different formations and colors.

5) Tilt Matrix – StylePack 3

Add a little action to spice up your show. A complex gridded matrix of nine images tilts into view, then tilts out of view, while two main images are used for the opening and closing displays.
