I'm hoping this is the right place to ask this question.

I've been making videos out of still images strung together, with a duration of about 25 seconds for each still image. Then add music.

I've also made some slide shows, using FastStone Image Viewer, in the same way. The FastStone results are quite satisfactory, and the process takes a small fraction of the time compared to compiling a video with Adobe, Shotcut, Avidemux, etc. Output file sizes are roughly comparable (3.5min = ~29mb).

My question: how can I convert these slide shows into video clips? FastStone generates them as apps (.exe extension).

Thanks in advance for any methods or leads.

Are you starting with digital image files or actual slides or pictures?

Once they are in a FastStone slide show format (.exe) does it matter?
