Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Image2mpeg is a tool to convert digital photos (or any other images) into MPEG video streams, with transitions between the images. The photo stream may be accompanied with music (or any other audio stream). The resulting slideshow may be prepared for VCD, SVCD, or DVD playback in stand-alone players, or the MPEG videos may be converted into FLV (Flash Videos). The type of transition can be selected for each image separately from a set of fade, slide, roll, etc.

Image2mpeg also supports the Ken Burns Effect, where photos can be panned and zoomed during display.

In addition, you may want to use VCDimager to generate VCD or SVCDs from the generated streams. For DVD authoring I suggest DVDStyler.
