This simple example shows off a few more details of dvd-slideshow.
# simple example with fades
# instead of specifying the background image on the command-line
# it's often easier to do it in this text file:
# a duration of 0 means to set the image, but don't display it.
# Titles are put in the center:
# The titlebar type of title has two titles, one on top and one lower:
titlebar:5:My top title:My lower title
# there are simple transitions that you can use:
# fadein, fadeout, and crossfade. They all fade to/from whatever
# background you're using. Syntax is:
# you can add a subtitle during the transition, but it's optional
# use a backslash to escape a colon ':' in the subtitles.
# use '\n' to force a newline (only two subtitle lines supported now).
picture1.jpg:4:Picture 1 is so cool\:\nI can't believe how cool it really is.
# fadeout is similar:
# it's possible to specify a new title slide in the middle of the slideshow:
titlebar:4::Panoramas # note this just has the bottom title specified.
# crossfade works similar to fadein/fadeout
pano.jpg:4:Cool panorama picture
# now let's change the background color:
# syntax is background:duration:subtitle:image
# where you can use "black" or "white" or "#RRGGBB
# as the image name also.
picture1.jpg:4:Picture 1 is so cool. I can't believe how cool it really is.
# it often looks nice to end the slideshow with a fadeout to the
# background instead of just stopping the video quickly:
background:2:This is the background
# note that the background is black now...
