Bytescout Image To Video SDK allows applying various slide transition effects when converting images to video slideshow.

The VB.NET and C# sample codes below show how to add transition effects when you convert JPG, PNG, BMP images to video slideshow in AVI or WMV format with Image To Video SDK.

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"
' Enable transition effects for the first and last slide

converter.UseInEffectForFirstSlide = True

converter.UseOutEffectForLastSlide = True
' Add images and set slide durations and transition effects

Dim slide As Slide

slide = CType(converter.AddImageFromFileName("........slide1.jpg"), Slide)
slide.Duration = 3000 ' 3000ms = 3s

slide.InEffect = TransitionEffectType.teFadeIn

slide.OutEffect = TransitionEffectType.teFadeOut
slide = CType(converter.AddImageFromFileName("........slide2.jpg"), Slide)
slide.Duration = 3000

slide.InEffect = TransitionEffectType.teSlideLeft

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

slide.InEffect = TransitionEffectType.teSlideDown

slide.OutEffect = TransitionEffectType.teSlideUp
' Set output video size
converter.OutputWidth = 400

converter.OutputHeight = 300
' 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
