Spotlighted Show: VideoMelange


This week’s spotlighted show comes from Andreja Sitar all the way in Austria. Andreja runs VideoMelange Slideshow Studio, she loves combining photos, videos, audio and text to tell her stories through video.

We love how she used some of ProShow Producer’s advanced creative FX to make really neat effects in her slideshow. Masking, keyframing and a variety of transitions (including Diagonal Swipe-Zoom In-Left and Diagonal Swipe-Zoom Out-Right from Transition Pack 2) are combined to create a wonderful presentation.

“I use ProShow Producer to turn my family memories into treasured keepsakes and to create original, visually appealing slideshows, that I showcase on my YouTube channel. What I like about ProShow Producer is everything. ProShow Producer is a well-designed, user friendly, easy to use and very stable slideshow software. I chose it because it offers tons of FX and transitions, great training videos, a blog full of creative ideas, tips, and great support.”

About VideoMelange

Andreja Sitar lives in Stainz, a lovely town in the Austrian state of Styria. She is a stay at home mom to one lovely daughter Jana and is a hobbyist photographer. She mainly photographs her family (holidays, family gatherings, day-to-day life, pets, etc…), nature and the places she visits. She enjoys every aspect of photography as a hobby, but combining photos, videos, audio and text into original video stories is her true passion.

This year she decided to showcase her video slideshows on her YouTube channel and that’s how VideoMelange Slideshow Studio came into existence. In other words, VideoMelange Slideshow Studio is actually her home office, where she can put aside her daily chores and make video slideshows. It’s her creative outlet and great fun for her.

Did you enjoy Andreja’s video? Her slideshow was made with ProShow Producer, postcard layouts were created in Paintshop Pro, and the photo collages were made in Picasa. Andreja also used music from the ProShow built-in music library, ‘Classic Inspiration’ and ‘Air Vibrations’.
