Displaying still images (about 100+) in a photo grid

Apr 29, 2013 11:06 AM

Hi, I am a cadet at a US Air Force detachment and am responsible for making this semester's end of the year video.

 

I have the Adobe creative cloud and am familiar with the basics of Photoshop, and Premiere Pro, and I am trying to also learn After Effects.  I have a large amount of picture and video, and am at a loss for how to quickly make all these pictures into an interesting slideshow.  Software such as Cyberlink Powerdirector had a "photo grid" which would allow me to create an automatic slideshow of images on a grid, where each image flashed into place one at a time.  I am looking for automated processes or tutorials to feed my images into and have a modern effect of displaying the images.

 

If anyone has any idea for a template or where to start on handling a large amount of still images in After Effects or Premiere Pro, I could definitely use a point in the right direction!

 

An example of what I need can be found at 5:27 of this video: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150247563700519&set=vb.12058380 1339638&type=2&theater

    There are a few sites that offer After Effects Templates.

    You might browse them to see if you find something that will work,

    but your example looks like a 'packaged effect' within whatever

    software was used to make that video.

     

    If that effect is exactly what you want, it might be the easiest path

    to find out who (and what program) produced that video.

    I know it may seem strange, but...not everyone is on Facebook.  Links to regular web sites will get a lager audience.

    I was afraid I would get blocked (not a member),

    but I guess this one is public.

    I am looking for automated processes...

    There's the rub.  Not much of that in Ae or Pr for what you want

    (aside from pre-built templates).

    I've found that most of the effects once created in After Effects or Premiere can be saved as a template after you make them

    That is very true.

    Maybe you can find an online template

    that you can expand on and make your own.

     

    Don't know your time frame.

    Don't know your experience level.

    You are not likely finish a slick 100+ photo treatment

    using After Effects in the next 48 hours.
