A cross-platform application for generating video sequences with key-frame image manipulation.
Pros & Cons:
ffDiaporama is a cross-platform application for generating video sequences and is a highly capable open source program on the level of some high-end commercial products. As such, its complexity requires a steep learning curve and can be quite daunting to users looking for a simple drag and drop slide show builder.
However, if the user is looking for a key-frame type of image manipulation, this program will be a good candidate. Style sheets are available as samples of image motion manipulation (ala "Ken Burns" effects).
The program is complete with a wide variety of audio and video output choices and DVD formats. Image inputs may be of photos, video, or animated clips. Some image editing is also available.
