Bytescout Image To Video SDK converts set of JPG, PNG, BMP images to AVI or WMV video slideshow and allows to set background color for the slideshow.

The sample codes below demonstrate how to set background color for a video slideshow during conversion in VB.NET and C#.

Visual Basic .NET

Imports BytescoutImageToVideoLib

Module Module1

Sub Main()

Console.WriteLine("Converting JPG slides into video, please wait..")

' Create BytescoutImageToVideoLib.ImageToVideo object instance
Dim converter As ImageToVideo = New ImageToVideo()

' Activate the component
converter.RegistrationName = "demo"
converter.RegistrationKey = "demo"

' set default in effect for slides (you can also set effects for each single slide)
converter.Slides.DefaultSlideInEffect = 1 ' teFadeIn (1) - fades in effect for slides transition
converter.Slides.DefaultSlideInEffectDuration = 500 ' 500 msec for in effect

' Set movie background color
converter.SetBackgroundColorRGB(0, 255, 128)

' Add images and set slide durations
Dim slide As Slide
slide = CType(converter.AddImageFromFileName("........slide1.jpg"), Slide)

slide.Duration = 3000 ' 3000ms = 3s
slide = CType(converter.AddImageFromFileName("........slide2.jpg"), Slide)

slide.Duration = 3000
slide = CType(converter.AddImageFromFileName("........slide3.jpg"), Slide)

slide.Duration = 3000

' Set output video size
converter.OutputWidth = 500

converter.OutputHeight = 400

' Set output video file name
converter.OutputVideoFileName = "result.wmv"

' Run the conversion
converter.RunAndWait()

Console.WriteLine("Conversion is done. Press any key to continue...")

Console.ReadKey

' Open the result video file in default media player
Process.Start("result.wmv")

End Sub

End Module 

Visual C#

using System.Diagnostics;

using BytescoutImageToVideoLib;

static void Main(string[] args)

Console.Write("Converting JPG slides into video, please wait..");

// Create BytescoutImageToVideoLib.ImageToVideo object instance
ImageToVideo converter = new ImageToVideo();

// Activate the component
converter.RegistrationName = "demo";
converter.RegistrationKey = "demo";

// Set movie background color
converter.SetBackgroundColorRGB(0, 255, 128);

// Add images and set slide durations
Slide slide;
slide = (Slide) converter.AddImageFromFileName("..\..\..\..\slide1.jpg");

slide.Duration = 3000; // 3000ms = 3s
slide = (Slide) converter.AddImageFromFileName("..\..\..\..\slide2.jpg");

slide.Duration = 3000;
slide = (Slide) converter.AddImageFromFileName("..\..\..\..\slide3.jpg");

slide.Duration = 3000;

// Set output video size
converter.OutputWidth = 500;

// Set output video file name

Console.ReadKey();

// Run the conversion
converter.RunAndWait();

// Open the result video file in default media player

Process.Start("result.wmv");
}
}

}
