Important

If you have Imagination 1.5 or 1.0 installed from sources and you are using 2.x, uninstall it before trying to install 2.0. If you fail to do so, Imagination will exit with segmentation fault.

Imagination's Frequently Asked Questions:

- How are transition effects applied?
Read Understanding Transitions document.

- Why there is no XYZ transition available?
Because we haven't written it yet. Our intention is to offer all transitions that are part of the SMIL 3.0 Specification but since there are a lot of them, this will take some time. If you really want XYZ transition, have a look at transition folder in source directory and create your own transition, send it to us and we'll do our best to get it included in next release of Imagination.

- What will happen if my audio files are too short or too long for video?
If your audio files are too short for slideshow, the end of the slideshow will simply be played in silence. If your audio files are too long, they will be truncated at the end of the slideshow. In the next release, audio will be smoothed before adding to slideshow.

- Why playing mp3 files on Fedora doesn't work?
Because Fedora supplies sox without support for mp3 (legal reasons). You'll need to build sox with mp3 support if you wish to preview mp3 files on Fedora.

- Is it possible to rearrange the order of the slides?
Sure, hold down left mouse button and move the slides then release it.

- I want to start my slideshow with a Fade-In transition, why don't you add it?
Because you already have it! Select the background color from the Properties menu and then apply the Cross-Fade effect on the first slide.

- I have Ubuntu and ffmpeg is installed but I get this error message from ffmpeg in the console: "Unknown encoder 'mpeg2video' "
