What an interesting experiment - your way is much more obvious and before I've never really seen the difference; thank you . I'm going to experiment with your caption suggestions too (I should be packing for our holiday tomorrow but just 'sneeked a peek' on here and, half-an-hour later ...!)
BTW, I only removed the caption but left 'Shine' which was timed in with the music.
Anyway, packing calls .
Liked it, very well done! One thing, on the first frame with three photos of the children, the middle child moves down and the edge of the photo shows through. I do not know if anyone has mentioned it. Also, I would probably end with a photo of the children.

Looking forward to seeing your future shows.
Debbie, I checked out your samples so I see exactly what you mean. (Excellent work, by the way. I love the music tracks you chose which perfectly match your photos. And you've inspired me to include additional audit (something I've wondered about doing but never got aroung to experimenting with). The bird song and sounds of the sea/running water are extremely effective and powerful. I can't wait to get back from the holiday & try this; how sad is that? )).
I also checked out your main page & hadn't connected you with the 'Portrait Triple Mask Tutorial which inspired me to try the triple effect a few months ago (thank you!). In my naievity, I didn't keep the link at the time, so had to get there by a different route to you, but I'm going back to try out your method as soon as I can. I've kept your user-id too: I want to watch your shows properly.
I would only suggest that you might want to add the school or class and most importantly the year in your introduction. It's easy to remember these things now but years from now it isn't as easy. You may even want to add captions describing some of the events. Again, it's helpful when viewing years from now.

Good thinking - another idea that fleetingly entered my (increasingly vacant) head a while back and left just as quickly. I'll definately do it .
As for the jerks, it is frustrating, but I'm determined to work out the cause & fix it.
If you are moving an image from point A to B to C and you are doing it with a linear motion style, the image moves the same speed start to finish. When it arrives at the points (B) for instance, it may behave like an old "pong" video game bouncing from B to C. But changing the motion style to decelerate at appropriate key frames can fix that.
I have had an extra key frame sneak in sometimes by an accidental double click in the wrong place and potentially make an image behave the way I didn't want. This can happen if buttons are on auto when they should have been on manual or vice versa.
I have found I can accidentally change the wrong key frame in the right image or change the right key frame but in the wrong image or change something in the wrong slide if that/those images are duped next to each other in succeeding slides. (Hope that makes sense.)
Have been using PSG for about a year and never realized there were two different blend options until your reply to Fiona - am glad Fiona asked the question and that you provided such a clear answer; your suggested experiment which I tried was a great way to see the difference. Thanks.

I LOVED your show, thanks for sharing!
Can you please tell me how you did the three pics at the beginning of the show with the kids... would that be a templete??? It is driving me crazy!!! I have not used either mask or templetes so I am somewhat at a loss.... Still learning!!!
Any help will be appreciated!!
