Thhis example shows some of the latest changes in dvd-slideshow.
# Examples for dvd-slideshow 0.7.5
# This example shows off some of the new features available in
# 0.7.5 through 0.7.2:
# different configuration variables and reading method
# Comments in all lines
# Smooth scroll effect in high-quality mode
# Kenburns zoom velocity fix
# chapter marker keywords
# sequential audio files
# using \n in subtitles to force newlines
# Subtitles stay constant between slides if the same subtitle is specified
# And, some older effects that aren't in the other examples:
# Copy original images into output dvd filesystem directory
# First, set some variables:
debug=0 # debug
pal=0 # use ntsc mode
ac3=1 # use ac3 audio instead of mp2
copy=1 # copy all images into a directory in output dvd filesystem directory.
autocrop=1 # make images that are very near the dvd aspect ratio fill the screen.
# Note that autocrop doesn't have an effect on portrait-orientation pictures.
# NOTE that the font options are not nice now, so the syntax will probably
# change to be more flexible. E-mail me if you have suggestions.
bottomtitle_font_color=blue # or use hex "#RRGGBB"
bottomtitle_bar_location_y=156 # relative to bottom of image
bottomtitle_bar_height=55 # 0 for no 50% white behind text
# note that tenths or hundredths or thousandths of seconds can be specified:
# Just display the top title. Lower titlebar will not show:
titlebar:4:Top Title # add another comment if you want.
# Just show the lower title. Top title will not show.
# show both titles:
toptitle_font_color=green # change the top font color
toptitle_bar_height=0 # no white background this time.
# note that variables need to get set BEFORE the crossfade because
# crossfade actually renders the title slide in order to use it.
titlebar:4.72:Top Title:Lower Title
# now let's start playing the audio on track 1:
# If you want the audio files to play one after another, you can just put them
# one line after another and they will be concatenated...
# display a picture and set a chapter marker here. By using the "chapter"
# keyword, you automatically set dvd-slideshow to use only your manual chapter
# markers instead of the default at each picture.
# The simple title can have \n characters to mark newlines:
title:4.72:Second part of\nmy slideshow
# set another chapter marker
pano_small.jpg:3:cool panorama picture
# zoom in to left side of panorama (no chapter marker)
pano_small.jpg:2::crop:imageheight;left # pause for a second
# now, the scroll effect is much smoother if you use the high-quality switch:
# -H when invoking dvd-slideshow. It will only be smoother if your scroll
# is quite slow (moving slower than about 4 pixels per frame)
# the slower you scroll, the more you can notice the difference.
pano_small.jpg:3.5::crop:imageheight;right # pause for a second
# you can force a newline in subtitles by using \n
picture2.jpg:4.5:First subtitle line\nSecond subtitle line
# note, that if you specify the same subtitle for adjacent slides, the
# subtitle will stay the same now.
picture1.jpg:3:My trip was great!
crossfade:1:My trip was great!
picture2.jpg:3:My trip was great!
pano.jpg:6:My trip was great!
# so, the subtitle will be displayed constantly for 6 seconds, then turn off for one
# second, and then come back on for 4 seconds...
