New Features. New Updates. The New FotoMagico 5 is Here.

Puchheim, Germany – March 30, 2016 – Boinx Software has just announced a new version of its premier slideshow creation tool, FotoMagico 5. This updated software program brings a combination of brand new editing tools and advancements to pre-existing features. Among many enhancements, FotoMagico 5 now features a slideshow interface with pre-built stories called “Snippets,” Audio Envelopes and Fades to control audio levels, an Audio Marker Assistant to provide more precise sound editing capabilities, improved text editing and placeholders, and much more.

“FotoMagico is made by photographers for photographers,” states Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. “This is why it puts the needs of photographers front and center. It’s easy to learn, as photographers want to spend their time taking photos - not learning a slide show app. The Snippets feature gets you magical results more quickly than ever. FotoMagico 5 slideshows look brilliant on 4K TVs as well as on YouTube. That’s why thousands of photographers rely on FotoMagico to tell their stories.”

FotoMagico 5 Updates Include:

  • New “Snippets” feature allow users to insert their own photo and video content into these pre-built stories to create beautiful slideshows; FotoMagico pros can create their own Snippets to streamline the production of slideshows, perfect for those working with clients
  • New Dark User Interface, designed for users of all skill levels, to make photos and videos stand out even more against a more modern backdrop
  • Music Snippets come with free CC licensed music by Josh Woodward and Kevin MacLeod to set the mood; pre-loaded with perfectly timed audio markers means your story is synchronized with the matching music, while an attribution slide keeps users out of copyright troubles
  • Animation Assistant designed to automatically make your slideshow move, while accounting for a variety of photo aspect ratios like portrait and panorama, movie and text properties
  • New Audio Marker Assistant (Pro only) offers more precise control over timing than ever before, with perfectly synchronized music and slides creating the right dramatic effect
  • New Audio Volume Envelopes and Fades (Pro only), the most requested feature, provides audio level controls that enable users to make the music softer when one intends to speak if presenting the slideshow, or to let the video audio take center stage
  • Improved Text Editing and Text Placeholders (Pro only) for the most intuitive way to edit and format titles yet

Additional new features available only in FotoMagico 5 Pro include the timeline view; record narration; access to Lightroom and Aperture libraries; teleprompter support; chapter support; masks, borders and color correction; and additional sharing options, such as the Standalone Player, ProRes video, and custom video.

Boinx Joins the 4K Revolution With FotoMagico 4.5

Puchheim, Germany – September 15, 2014 – 4K is rapidly making inroads in professional video production, and Boinx Software is not one to miss the trend. The recently released FotoMagico 4.5, the newest version of the award-winning slideshow creation tool from Boinx, is now optimized for the production of 4K video. FotoMagico 4.5 also takes full advantage of modernized OS X features, providing improvements in performance and stability to better facilitate user creativity.

John Woody – filmmaker, professor emeritus at James Madison University, and Apple Distinguished Educator – comments on the ability to use 4K in his FotoMagico workflow: “To me, the greatest strength of FotoMagico when using 4K clips and stills is its ability to quickly preview special scaling animations. I use it for both pre-visualization and online production. The software fits my 4K workflow perfectly!

It’s clear that the move to 4K is fast underway, with the number of 4K UHD TV sets shipping in 2014 already far surpassing those shipped in the whole of 2013, according to the NPD DisplaySearch Quarterly Global TV Shipment and Forecast Report.

For this release, we optimized FotoMagico for use with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and 10.9 (Mavericks), and prepared for 10.10 (Yosemite),” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Using modernized functionality of OS X leads to better performance and reliability, as well as reduces complexity, which means fewer bugs. The vast majority of FotoMagico users are already using current OS X versions and will benefit from these updates.

See Boinx Software at photokina 2014

Add a New Layer of Magic to Your Slideshows with FotoMagico 4

Puchheim, Germany – October 10, 2012 – FotoMagico 4 brings a whole new dimension of life to slideshows. The new multiple Layers feature lets users tell every side of a story brilliantly. Novices and professionals alike can easily capture and create emotion with absolute control using the new Timeline’s visual and audio elements. An upgrade so rich with features, FotoMagico 4 enables users to push their artistic boundaries, creating slideshows so stunning and image-rich that, when paired with the new MacBook Pro’s Retina display, audiences will confuse them for reality.

"With the new MacBook Pro with Retina display, Apple finally ships a computer that lives up to FotoMagico’s standards for image quality. And just in time for the release of FotoMagico 4, too!" said Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. "At Boinx Software, we are all about empowering people to be more creative than they ever thought they could be. For FotoMagico 4, this means that the new Timeline provides the kind of precise control necessary to get your point across, and the new layers add a whole new dimension of depth to your story, offering even more creative freedom than ever before."

FotoMagico 4 Highlights Include:

Mix and Match Photos, Videos and Titles on a Single Slide

A limitless amount of combinations means a story that can be told in unlimited ways. Users can now easily work with up to six layers per slide, allowing a multitude of combinations of images, videos and titles. Animate a variety of unique titles, add picture-in-picture effects, display movies on images, and more.

It’s Your Story, Tell It the Way You Want To

Timing is everything - especially when it comes to storytelling. FotoMagico 4’s new Timeline mode is perfect for making precise adjustments to each individual slide’s duration as well as the transition length between slides. Users can now toggle between the original Storyboard view, which allows them to easily rearrange slides, and the Timeline view, which gives them total control over timing.

Sync Sound Like Never Before

Perfect harmony between music and images is essential to telling your story. Seeing the Audio Waveform helps users to match slides with music at just the right moments, as well as adjust volume and fades right from the Timeline. Syncing music and photos is now even easier by simply setting Audio Markers to trigger transitions in the slideshow.

Slideshows So Real You’ll Want to Step Inside

With the MacBook Pro’s new Retina display, creating slideshows with FotoMagico 4 is an immersive experience. Images are so vivid and so real, the experience pulls you in and compels you to create a slideshow as vibrant as the real images themselves.

The Little Things that Make a Big Difference

Beyond its groundbreaking features, FotoMagico 4 delivers a sleeker and more intuitive user workspace. For example, both the Storyboard and Timeline display popover alerts for common authoring errors and offer simple one-click solutions to problems when they arise. Existing users will also find that many controls and elements are exactly where they think they should be.

"I have decided that I want complete control of my images and my slide shows. So I have switched to FotoMagico. One of the reasons I have switched to [sic] is that in the new version 4, you can change the slide position by hand so that it lands on the downbeat of the music. You can also insert picture in picture or video. You can use any background or theme you like. Etc.," reports Scott Bourne of Photofocus. "When it comes to sharing your videos you have lots of options. You can host for free on sites such as WordPress.com using link to Vimeo or YouTube as a source or you can purchase the very affordable WordPress plugin (a few bucks) to play video directly on your WordPress blog. ...I’m going to start making all my slide shows with the new version of FotoMagico."

Fotomagico Makes Stylish Transition to Version 3.8

Puchheim, Germany – June 16, 2011 – Boinx Software presents digital photographers and videographers with brand new transitions in FotoMagico 3.8, the company’s latest update to its unique slideshow presentation tool for Mac OS X. Version 3.8 is all about the transition; FotoMagico slideshows flow smoother than ever before with the new transitions Blinds, Flash, Pixelate, and Broken TV, and enhanced options for the existing favorites Fade and Flip. "By very popular request, the focus of FotoMagico 3.8 was definitely to provide our users with more transitions," comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. "Transitions are a great way to enhance and play up the mood, look and feeling you want your slideshows to achieve if they are executed well. We also did not forget to work on performance and stability which are essential to every creative process."

Boinx engineers also went under-the-hood in version 3.8 to tune-up the software’s performance and audio playback for a more streamlined and efficient workflow. In accord with the iPhone and iPad’s support for HD movies, Boinx added an HD 720p format option to FotoMagico’s iPhone sharing plug-in, allowing users to display their HD movies on a HDTV with the appropriate connector cables. In addition, the FotoMagico export progress is now visible in the Dock icon so that users can send the app to the background and work in a different app in the foreground while not losing sight of the export progress.
