Works great on Ubuntu 14.04. I looked around a lot and compared several application for generating slideshows from images. This app was the only one that rendered high-definition videos correctly. Picture transitions are great and very smooth too. Definitely will support this further development for this project. Thanks!
GUI looks cool and I can imagine that if it work than it's quite useful app. But at this moment it doesn't work at all on Ubuntu 13.04. Any attempt to render video finishes with error message :-( I use version from Ubuntu Software Center (photofilmstrip 1.9.91+dfsg-1). If you need any additional info about this bug than feel free to contact me.
Shows lots of promise as a MS PhotoStory3 replacement. GUI is first rate, very simple to use (unlike the massively complex but totally obscure Open Source ffDiaporama). Really needs the ability to 'set this photo crop start to same place as previous photo crop end' (so you can build multi-step Ken Burns effect by importing the same photo multiple times) and the ability to change the music track on a new photo (rather than just a single track per project). The final 'annoyance' is that the output fps/resolutions/bit rates are 'built in' at 'compile' time (it would be Really Nice if it would support an external profile (like MS PS3 does, with it's '.prx' profiles :-) ) = of course you can always tweak the Python source and run it in interpreter mode
I really wish development will continue. Photo film Strip has enormous potential bus is still a "work in progress". I am willing to donate to see some features! Please keep up the good work!
