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!
For mac try Macvide ScreenCap! A very good program for capturing.You'd taken result screenshots to PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP formats,
Save captured video to quickTime MOV, iPod mp4 or Mobile 3GP formats,Save captured to Flash SWF and FLV Video. Also you can print your screen shots or publish them to the internet.

If you don't know exactly -stop your jaw! good luck
This is a Linux forum fool (you probably have no idea what it is). Not a place to post proprietary Window$-only shareware programs. I consider that advertising ... especially since you've done it three times with the same program.
