The following examples best explain how to create slideshows with the dvd-slideshow tools. They get progressively more complex, so if you are a beginner, it is best to start with the first one and go through each one in series. You can also download the examples below so you can try these at home.

  • Very Simple: General syntax, title slides, displaying pictures, subtitles, and backgrounds.
  • Simple: Fades, more complex titles and backgrounds, and special characters.
  • Audio: Starting and stopping audio, multiple audio tracks, silence, and fades.
  • Complex: Setting variables, cropping images, kenburns effect, scroll effect.
  • 0.7.5: update later
  • Complete: Using dir2slideshow, dvd-menu, viewing .vob, creating and burning .iso.

Changelog 0.7.5

dvd-slideshow 0.7.5

New Features:

Use "\n" to force line breaks up to two lines in title text (not titlebar yet).

Fixed code to rotate images. (not that public yet)

Use image.jpg:duration:subtitle:[effect1:effect1_params:]rotate:angle

Configuration variables will be read in sequence now. So you can configure fontcolors and sizes throughout the input file.

Allow comments in all lines. Everything after <space># will be ignored.

Scroll effect is MUCH smoother for slow scrolls in high-quality mode! (takes 3x longer)

Slideshow name -n is optional now. Defaults to the base name of the input file.

Changed old "title" keyword to "titlebar:duration:toptitle:bottomtitle"

Added "title:duration:title_text" function where a single title is rendered in the middle of the screen.

Add check for missing subtitle syntax in crop/scroll/kenburns.

Longer progress bar.

Reads ~/.dvd-slideshowrc in a loop for better debugging and security.

Added "+repage" in convert lines after cropping when using internal .mpc image format.
