The full proposal for this project is at: http://trac.yorba.org/wiki/SummerOfCodeSlideshow
This project intends to overhaul the Shotwell slideshow.
Current code can be found in https://gitorious.org/alexandre-rosenfeld-gsoc-2011
The main inspiration for this project is Picasa and iPhoto.
iPhoto slideshow settings
The main features to implement are:
- Transition effects
- Background music
- Show image captions (optionally edit them)
- Allow exporting slideshows as videos
The implementation so far will be composed of Clutter for the slideshow and transition effects, with a plugins API for transitions and GStreamer for background music and exporting.
