A free Impress to DVD solution

Postby tin2tin » Sat Jan 23, 2010 5:51 pm

Import of Impress(odp) and Power Point(ppt) files are supported in DVD slideshow GUI(Freeware GLP'ed). Open Office is doing the hard work with an extention(I've only tested with OOo 3.0 and OOo 3.1).

I made a videotutorial here: http://blip.tv/file/3107809

When DVD slideshow GUI is started it will find Open Office if it is installed in the default location or else you'll have to correct the path of Open Office in DVD slideshow GUI > Slideshow > External Applications. Now you should be able to import ppt and obp.

If you want to convert your ppt/odb presentation to a remote-controllable-dvd you need to install Gui for dvdauthor this can also be done by reinstalling DVD slideshow GUI and check Gui for dvdauthor in the installer and it will be installed automatically. When both programs are installed properly and the paths are set up in the External Applications window, all you have to do is DVD slideshow GUI > Files > 'Export to DVD Menus' and in 'Gui for dvdauthor' change the look of the menus to your liking and finally hit 'Burn DVD'.

Download DVD slideshow GUI here:

And Gui for dvdauthor:

My OO basic code for the extention and command lines can be found here:

DVD slideshow GUI has been reported to be working under Wine too:

I don't run Linux myself so I can't confirm this.
