DX: Create AVI/MPG/PDF/Flash/CD/VCD/SVCD

Post by Dreamer »

Create AVI file, Create MPG file, Export to PDF file, Export to Flash file, Create CD/VCD/SVCD

And add these items (and Create EXE and Create screensaver) to Create menu (also 'Export to' should be Create (PDF/Flash)), since it's a bit hidden now (in Slide Show). Slide Show window and appropriate dialog would be opened.

Edit: Added Create MPG file.

But EXE is just a form of slideshow.

No use putting it in Create as separate entry.

I disagree, these options are hidden, most users will not try to find them there. In other languages it could be even worse, since "slide show" is not easy to translate.

There are special entries for such features (EXE...) in other programs too.

I don't want to open slide show, but slide show dialog and 'Create EXE/SCR' dialog.

Anyway, maybe even more changes are needed to be clearer...

So first think about your ideas and then present them.

BTW, do you think that user wants to create exe file (doing what?) or create slide show and then select its form?

My main suggestion is from Deluxe version and it's clear.

Another suggestion is clear too, just some changes are needed.

I don't have time to think about it, since I don't have a full version of XnView Deluxe. I tried to suggest as many useful deluxe features as possible. If you don't like it, it's your problem, just don't tell me what I have to do!

Look above! This is "Various discussion boards for XnView and related products", so this is the right place for users to find the best solutions.

Update - added "Create MPG file".

Perhaps also MPEG2, but I'm not sure if this is possible, if MPEG2 is free...

Thanks Pierre, I assume it's easier to implement, than integration into Slideshow, right?

I think it should be included in the Complete version, do you agree?

This feature was in the shareware version of XnView (Deluxe), but it's dead, more here. Nothing is impossible, but there are so many other good image viewers, so I hope...
