Slideshow/DVD software - Recommendations?
Hello there, a request for best software to use for the job:
My wife wants to do something a bit special for her Dad's 60th...
She wants to send out a DVD to all invited parties.
When they play the DVD she wants collections of old photos of Pa-In-Law to fade in/out, accompanied by captions stating that it's Mick's birthday, all invited, venue, date etc, all to the tune of an upbeat Neil Young track (Pa-In-Law's idol).
I stated that I could achieve this at the school I work at using Windows Moviemaker: Import the scanned images, add some transitions, let the photos remain on screen for desired number of seconds, import the mp3 etc. I could then save the movie as an mpeg & then author it to be burnt onto a DVD.
There is something in me that is loath to use the School Windows system, when I have a perfectly usable & up-to-date Debian system at Home.
Could anyone recommend a software tool under Linux that could import photos, add some transitions & music etc & create a slideshow film?
I see that I can create an OOffice Impress presentation & save it as Flash Video (I suppose I could then convert it to an mpeg etc)
However, is there a better tool for this job? Any recommendations welcomed!
Running Debian Lenny, if that helps.
