View Full Version : Ken Burns Effect

One question on the extended resizers. Do they accept variables from the conditionalreader function and are all variables subject to change per frame. Or would the frameEvaluate approach be more suitable. I am working on a pan and zoom routine on stills converted to avi.

As far as I know, those variables can be used - you may have to declare them globally first though. The only caveat is that you cannot concatenate clips of different dimensions.

The other caveat is that certain colorspace modes have different requirements for the frame dimensions (e.g. width divisible by 2, etc.).

I'd try setting up my time line then use "Overlay()" to slide the photo clips around.

Thanks for comments. I am about to try a script

Hard to believe that was two years ago.

but now there is this http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=925675#post925675

and this http://www.videohelp.com/~tin2tin/ which is " DVD slideshow GUI "

The user function anslide(animate slide), found in the script shown in the top post, returns a clip

anslide("file path\name", // path/filename a string
length, // length of output clip in frames
direction, // pan direction like a number pad
mode, // In, Out, Zm
zoom factor) // floating point percent of image size

painfully slow
set up for NTSC DVD slide shows or slide insertion
needs a pan mode

creates spectacular presentations
