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: # background:duration:subtitle:image # a duration of 0 means to set the image, but don't display it. background:0::background.jpg # Titles are put in the center: title:5:My title background:1 # The titlebar type of title has two titles, one on top and one lower: titlebar:5:My top title:My lower title background:1 # there are simple transitions that you can use: # fadein, fadeout, and crossfade. They all fade to/from whatever # background you're using. Syntax is: # fadein:duration:subtitle # 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). fadein:2 picture1.jpg:4:Picture 1 is so cool\:\nI can't believe how cool it really is. # fadeout is similar: # fadeout:duration:subtitle fadeout:2:Fading out # it's possible to specify a new title slide in the middle of the slideshow: fadein:1 titlebar:4::Panoramas # note this just has the bottom title specified. # crossfade works similar to fadein/fadeout # crossfade:duration:subtitle crossfade:1 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. background:1::#11a004 # or background:1::black picture1.jpg:4:Picture 1 is so cool. I can't believe how cool it really is. crossfade:3 picture2.jpg:3 # it often looks nice to end the slideshow with a fadeout to the # background instead of just stopping the video quickly: fadeout:2 background:2:This is the background # note that the background is black now...
