What is LandSlide?

Welcome to the LandSlide project page. LandSlide is a image slide show generator/editor which renders a slideshow MPEG or AVI formatted file that is capable of being played onto a computer or played on a DVD to view on your TV set. LandSlide has its roots from the orginal Manslide program written by Stephane Gibault where his design goals were a streamlined feature rich, simplistic interface that is easy to use. LandSlide has completely different design goals in mind. Features such as Symmetrical Multi Processing multi-threading,distributed processing, relational database support to aid with photo and OpenGL animated sequence management are just a few features the project aims to achieve in the future.

What LandSlide is not

The LandSlide is not meant to be a replacement for the Manslide project by Stephane Gibault. LandSlide has different goals than Manslide. In fact, you are better off sticking with Manslide because it is doubtful that most people would need the powerhouse features planned for the LandSlide project, or likely you may very well grow old and pass on before LandSlide achieves its goals. Let's hope not! LandSlide is open to anyone who wants to try it out. Anyone who contributes to the project is welcome with open arms. The project encourages novices as well as veterans to contribute to the project. We need you!.
