Fades other than cut are likely to be some way off. It looks like I need to use the GPU and OpenGLES to do them as the ARM processor is not fast enough. It seems to take about a second to manipulate a 1 megapixel image and a fade really needs at least 12 frames/sec.sjmason7777 wrote:Hello Ken,
Any idea when transitions besides "cut" will be available? Also, is there a way to display images so they are full screen like the video (or match the same size window as the video) in a mixed media presentation?
Thanks for all your hard work!
You can't at the moment. A number of people have asked for this and it's the next thing I will add.gizmoCraig wrote:Hi Ken,
I have a kiosk display with four video tracks. Each video is supposed to play when a button is pressed.
4 videos, and 4 buttons - one for each.
I want to start videos on demand from a blank screen. For example if the user presses button 3 I want video three to start. If there is another video in progress I want that one to stop and the new video to start (interrupting the current video).
Many thanks,KenT wrote:gizmoCraig wrote:Hi Ken,

I used section 8.6 of the manual to attempt this. If I copy the line of text out of the auto start file and paste it in to a terminal window it will run.
also I am needing some help stringing multiple arguments together to make the screen not blank and go full screen.
here is the line that works from the terminal but the screen is not full and it blanks out.

Video, images, and audio. In [pipresents] audio is played by omxplayer in [pipresents-next] by MPlayer which is better because you do not get a blank screen and a wider range of formats is supported.mohog wrote:thank you, it now works.
will the stock liveshow show more than images? for example will it play video clips placed in the same folder?

Is 1.2.2a more stable than 1.2.1d - or otherwise enough improved to justify switching at this late stage? I'm hesitant to go to production with a release a week old. --Don
