dvd-slideshow is a group of Linux commandline programs that creates a slideshow-style dvd from groups of pictures.  Slideshow videos can be made from a directory or some online photo albums. You can add fancy effects like fades, titles, and the Ken Burns effect (slowly zooming and panning at the same time) along with audio to make your slideshows even nicer.  There is also a script which generates a menu for your dvd (dvd-menu).  The dvd-slideshow tools are open-source programs released under the GNU GPL.

Welcome to the dvd-slideshow wiki

dvd-slideshow is a group of Linux commandline programs that creates a slideshow-style video from groups of pictures. Slideshow videos can be made from a directory or some online photo albums. You can add fancy effects like fades, titles, and the Ken Burns effect (slowly zooming and panning at the same time) along with audio to make your slideshows even nicer. These slideshow can be in flash video format, MP4, or DVD-compatible mpeg2 video. There is also a script which generates a menu for your DVD (dvd-menu). The dvd-slideshow tools are open-source programs released under the GNU GPL.
