an interesting piece of software. It animates a travel map,
creating an avi video. It is unique, it's from Roxio.

Thanks for posting the link; it really looks neat--and I am tempted . . . if it were $29 or so I might "bite." Of course, it is relatively easy and a lot "lighter" than a video to just grab a map, extract a plane, and do my own with Producer . . . . or use one of Mona's or Anita's--so guess I'll pass at present. It does really look like a great little program, though.
Roxio doesn't develop the software. This company does:

Motion Studios has a version 5 available, but if you thought the "deal" from Roxio was pricey, you might not want to click on the Motion Studios link .
Oldguy, thanks for taking a minute to share this.
Lynn, after you posted the info regarding the lower price, I went to the Roxio site but could only find the $49.99 price. Then, I asked my husband if he received e-mails from Roxio and he does. Lo and behold, he had the announcement and link for the $39.99 one and I ordered it.
I have downloaded and installed it and played around with it just a bit. It has some great built-in tutorials that explain its use very clearly. It is an awesome little program (well, not so small--more than a gig) which I think might come in handy occasionally. One of the neat things is that it does draw the travel route as well as has multiple animated objects (cars, cyclists, etc., etc.) that one can use on the routes--and lots and lots of maps.
Thanks, Forrest, for alerting me to it and to you, Lynn, for telling me about the reduced price. Well, I say thanks and sincerely mean it but guess I am thanking you for helping me spend money! Oh, well . . . it will give me one more tool in my Producer arsenal.
I just copied a JPEG copy of my own map to the map folder in the program files. I then accessed it the same way you access the built-in maps--through Project Settings. You may have to play around with the size to get it they way you want it.
There may be another way to import a map, but I haven't seen it.
Each time I want to use a map that I placed into the map folder, I have to start from the beginning in the Map Selection Window. By that I mean I have to start at my c drive and work my way too the maps folder. Only in that way is my folder titled US maps visible. If I open Project Settings, Map Selection only the programs map folders are visible. Not my US Map folder. Do you have that same problem?
How much resolution do you get with each map........? i.e. can you see selected cities in Texas?
Dallas, Houston, etc...........
Can you get groups of states? Like Texas, Oklahoma, La. ?????
You should be getting something for $49.95 ???
