NAME

       dir2slideshow - Creates an input file for dvd-slideshow from pictures in a directory.

SYNOPSIS

       dir2slideshow  [-o <output directory>] [-t <Seconds per picture>] [-c <Crossfade seconds>]
       -n <Slideshow name> [-T] [-M] [-s subtitle_text] [-notitle] <Images directory>

DESCRIPTION

       Creates a input file for dvd-slideshow from all the JPEG images in a given directory.  Now
       it reads all .jpg .JPG .jpeg .png and .PNG files in the specified directory.

OPTIONS

       [-o <Output directory>]
              Directory  where  the  output  file will be written.  If not specified, the current
              directory is used.

       [-t <Seconds per picture>]
              Number of seconds to display each picture in the movie.  Defaults to 5  seconds  if
              not specified.

       [-c <Crossfade seconds>]
              Number  of  seconds  to crossfade between images. One second is usually fine.  Note
              that this will increase the processing time considerably, but it looks nice.

       [-w <Wipe seconds>]
              Number of seconds to wipe between images. One second is usually fine.  Pick  either
              crossfade or wipe, but not both.

       -n <Slideshow name>
              The  name  of  this slideshow.  This name is used as the default title text for the
              first title slide in the slideshow. This name will be used  (converting  spaces  to
              underscores) for the output file name.

       [-T]   Sort  images  by  the JPEG header picture taken time, then by the file modification
              date, and finally by the filename. Default sort is by name only. Requires the jhead
              program.

       [-M]   Sort  images  by the file modification date, and then by the filename. Default sort
              if by name only.

       [-s subtitle_text]
              Add default subtitle "subtitle_text" to every slide.  Use "-s filename" to  display
              filename  as  the  subtitle.  Use "-s path" to display the path and filename as the
              subtitle.

       [-s subtitle_text]
              Add default subtitle "subtitle_text" to every slide.  Use "-s filename" to  display
              filename  as  the  subtitle.  Use "-s path" to display the path and filename as the
              subtitle.

       [-s2 subtitle_text]
              Same as -s but adds subtitles to subtitle track 2.

       [-notitle]
              Do not create a title slide.

       [-b background.jpg]
              Use background.jpg as the background images.  Default is black.

       [-r]   Recursively search directories for images, creating one output file.

       [-k]   Apply random kenburns effects to images.

       [-p]   Use PAL output video format instead of NTSC

       [-theme themename]
              Use themename as a theme file.  See theme help files for more info. (TBD)

       [-a audiofile1,audiofile2,...]
              Add audio files to the  slideshow.  Files  will  be  played  sequentially  for  the
              duration of the slideshow.  Use quotes if you have spaces in filenames.

       <Images directory>
              The path to the directory containing the images you want to use.
