Animoto--simple but limited video creation software

I'm working on my book trailer course, and ran across this video creation software. You put in some captions and some pictures, pick music they provide and it mixes it for you. It's kind of neat.

This took me about 2 hours because I first made it too long. (Even though it said use 14 pictures, it would only take 9.) Still it's cute. What do you think?

Nice! I haven't tried this out yet, but I've been wanting to.
Perhaps the 9 pic limit could have something to do with the length of your piece of music? Just a thought.

It has to do with the tempo of the music and whether or not you are doing a 30-second blurb or a 2 min feature. I've not yet figured out if the subscription to do longer ones costs anything, though if so, I don't think it's worth it to me.
