Foto2Avi can become from a fast convertion tool to an awfully slow tool .
You MUST understand that the special effects have a significant impact on the computer resources.
Here i will list you some tips that can make Foto2Avi mo0re performant
1) Resize all your photos specialy if you have an 10mp camera and each photo es 5mb !!! For more information look here
2) Animation effects are heavy ! Use them with caution ! The preview can have a lot of problems but if you try to convert them you will obtain an perfect result !!!
3) Say NO to huge projects ! Divide them to more scenes !!!
Let's say that you want to make an really big video with 300 photos . It is better to divide this project in three fases (3 projects *.f2a) 100-100-100 photos.
Foto2Avi can produce Uncompressed avis so you cannot lose in quality !
Use Foto2Avi to :
first 100 photos -> uncompressed_video1.avi
second 100 photos -> uncompressed_video2.avi
last 100 photos -> uncompressed_video3.avi
Now load these 3 uncompressed videos on Foto2avi in a new project and just join them . Now you can compress your video as you like !
4) Save your projects before previewing them ! It is important ! Avisynth has some problems with the stability at least to our test systems ... Use the preview with caution. (More tips will be explained here later)
