I’m looking for a (free is possible) software under Linux to create and
play real photo-show (slideshows), that is a collection of images linked
together by smooth transitions, along with some music (e.g. mp3 bits)
and with dynamic smooth scrolling/zooming and all sort of fancy things.
I want more than one of these HTML image gallery maker (still, something
like the WireFusion SlideShow –
http://www.demicron.com/gallery/slideshow.html – would be good), I’m
not sure I can use the standard office solutions (e.g. OpenOffice.org),
and probably that a video tool would be overkilling (I don’t want to
create a movie at the end, but something to show on a computer).
Overall, SDL seems to be a good starting point for that…
Do you have any suggestion? Some search on the web lead me to MinDia
(http://mindia.sourceforge.net/), the already mentionned WireFusion, or
MyShow (http://www.incarna.com/myshow/), but nothing really fits what
I’m looking for. slideshow (http://www.alobbs.com/slideshow) is based
upon SDL but it looks like it’s more office-presentation oriented.
PS: if you know of a newsgroup where this question would have more
chance of being answered, please let me know.
