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


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


       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.


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

       -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  for  the  output  file

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

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

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

       [-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

       [-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

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

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

              Do not create a title slide.

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

       [-k]   Apply random kenburns effects to  images.  (use  of  this  is  discouraged  because
              encoding takes so long)

       [-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.

       [-q]   Quiet mode: outputs less screen output.
