    The "integrated into edius" is the reason IM is so nice. IM can still be used as a stand alone program. You just need to export an AVI file and drop it on the time-line. The integrated into edius, makes what ever action you did in IM act as a still on the time-line. One guy said he just figured out the timing for each photo and made the AVI to match. Now thats OK with just a few photos, but what if you need to make a 1 sec change to a 100 photos. With IM as a stand alone program, I would need to re-export each photo again. The way we have it now, I can just grab the end of the clip on the time-line and move it to the length I need. Very quick. And as GV already knows, time is money.

      The usual advice for preventing twitter and flicker is to apply some blur but this doesn't help with Layout, just blurs while not needed with Imaginate.

      Only thing applying blur does is blur the image. There are two things that I use and they are 95-99% successful. They are both in Photoshop.
      If the image comes from the timeline I start by deinterlacing the image and matching the NTSC color. Then I run the deinterlace action that is in Photoshop.
      This second step does the trick on most of the tricky flickering troublespots.
      As the image gets larger, so does the flickering. I start with the large original photo. If it doesn't correct it I reduce the image down and try it again.

      If I am using stills, I will spend quite some time on preparing the photos before even attempting to throw them into Imaginate, or Stage tools.
      This will save time in the long run and keep the video image that is produced as
      pristine as it possibly can be.

          Better think again ............
          You either don't know how Imaginate works, never done a hundred + still image project with E6 and made numerous changes over and over again, or work for GV.

            the Layouter has serious problems with animating stills, because keyframes don't dynamically move with lengthening or shortening of clips

            example, add keyframes to move from A to B on a 6 sec still, then change the still duration to 3 sec, now go back to Layouter and find the keyframes have vanished outside the visible area and can't be updated until you first lengthen the clip again

            with IVT files on Edius timeline, it can be stretched longer or shorter and the keyframes update automatically to a correct % of the new duration

            an IVT can be double clicked any time and modified in the IM2 program

            I can get the job done in E6 using Layouter, but on more complex stills where large resolution is required such as 30,000 x 30,000 I will fire up E5

            Imagine a 30,000 x 30,000 still with 300 faces, start the animation from one head and slowly zoom out to reveal all, looks impressive and is impossible to do in E6
