images2mpg


I thought that images2mpg is part of kipi-plugins so I installed the plugins from slackbuilds. I can't find the program though. Images2mpg doesn't seem to exist on my system.

My friend bought a one-hour session in a recording studio for her daughter as a birthday gift. She emailed me some mp3 files along with her photos asking me to put it together in a film.

It seems that images2mpg is able to accomplish this task. Perhaps, you know any other software that could do it.

thanks

Try running updatedb in case it hasn't been run for a while and then run "locate /bin/images2mpg". The kde3-libkipi package should also supply a manpage.

Thanks, unfortunately, it didn't help.

I think I know what's going on. According to this page, MpegEncoder (a tool to create an MPEG slideshow with a set of images) hasn't been ported to KDE4's version of the plugins yet. This applies to the latest version of the plugins, ie. 0.7.0. The one from slackbuilds is even older (0.2.0)

I tried it in Slackware 12.2 (KDE 3.5/qt3) but it's the same story. Even though it builds with MpegEncoder support, images2mpg just does not seem to exist.
Finally, I found the images2mpg script on this website and am using it now.

cheers

dvdslideshow?

ffmpeg and mencoder has options to do this. But they're a little demanding in how you specify them to do it.

ffmpeg -f image2 -r 1 -loop_input -i image%03d.png -sameq -t 00:00:01.000 -vcodec mpeg2video -y output.mpg

-r is how many frames per second.
-t is how long (-loop_input keeps repeating the image(s) until time is used up)
-sameq (keeps the quality, you can use -qscale 1 or -b 1000k (default is -b 200k))
%03d (represents the number of digits of the sequence of images(counting from 001), just use the actual image name if there's only 1)
