Briefly helps you create still motion videos, a neat and fun way to show hundreds and hundreds of your photos within a few minutes.

Still motion videos consist of photos that are shown for the fraction of a second - though not to be confused with stop motion where photos necessarily correlate with each other to create an animation.

Briefly lets you create these videos with just a few clicks.
Import your photos (from your hard drive, flickr or Instagram), add a soundtrack (from your iTunes Library or your hard drive) and Briefly will render the video for you.

- Create high-quality still motion videos up to 1080p
- Briefly can automatically choose the best resolution for you, based on the smallest photo to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of black borders
- Briefly detects if a soundtrack is too long and fades it out accordingly at the end of your video
- Sort photos by color for an amazing gradient effect
- Share your videos on popular services like YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and flickr right from within Briefly

For a demo version and further information, please visit Briefly's website.

If you have any feedback or questions, please do not hesitate to write me by mail at, or on twitter at @Briefly_App or @eternalstorms.
Thank you.

What's New in Version 1.5.3

- Fixes a critical bug that would keep Briefly from creating Still Motion Videos without soundtrack if the "no soundtrack" warning was disabled

A more substantial update is in the works for Briefly.

Thank you for using Briefly and the great feedback you've been giving me.
If you have a minute, please consider leaving a little review on the Mac App Store - it would mean a lot to me.
