    Imagination, a simple and lightweight DVD slideshow

    Hi,

    I've developed a simple and lightweight interface in GTK+2 to produce DVD slideshow from a set of pictures: Imagination. The code for the transition between the images uses cairo and it's developed a plugins loadable with GModule. The current code is available only with SVN and no encoding yet is developed, just the transition effects. I would like to receive any patch/feedback/help for improving it and developing new eye candy plugins; they are found in the directory transitions.

    The code can be fetched with:

    $ svn co http://imagination.svn.sourceforge.n...ot/imagination

    I need an original and fresh logo for Imagination. If you aren't a developer but can help for creating a new logo I will appreciate your help. Also there is no website yet for Imagination. Any contribution too is appreciated. The web site should be simple but impressive.

    Thanks,

    Me too I've always wanted one of these. There is a huge lack of user-friendly apps like this on Linux and for this reason I coded Imagination.

    Can I add music to the slide show? Can I export it as a simple movie file, like Theora?

    They are all planned for next release; ffmpeg can export to Theora if it's compiled with such support. Stay tuned! Counsel/feedback are appreciated.

    Looking good. Will look forward to you adding Ken Burns and such.

    The one time I needed to make a DVD slideshow I had used slcreator but it's very outdated.

    Sound will be added in the next release for sure since we're working on it. I'm in doubt for Ken Burns but in the third Imagination release they will be. In the mean time in the development version we added new transitions respect to the 1.0 one and also Ogg (Theora/Vorbis) slideshow export.

    This is just what I've been looking for.

    One reallys good addition would be to be able to include "short" video also. then you will have a brilliant peice of kit.

    I will try it out in the next few months (hopefully you will have added sound also by then) when I put together my next set of "baby" photo's.

    I haven't looked at your sourceforge page, but do plan (or allready have) a windows version? then I will be able to share the same stuff with my wife.

    My colleagues at work create films from timelapse photography stuff, I guess you can change the "speed" between frames?

    I must tag this page and try it out really soon.

    I have no idea how to do this, as far as I know switching to GSstreamer in a future release this is possible.

    No, it's not planned at the moment, but it's very easy to compile a binary for windows, just adapting the Makefile.

    If you mean the transition speed yes it's. Also you can decide how long a slide should stay before the next effect.

    Thanks for using Imagination,
