Suggests to improve Flipsuite
« on: February 09, 2012, 06:52:11 AM »
Hi, this software it's wonderful! thank you!
I've some idea to improve it:
- in special effects tab, may be nice to add some new effect like: sketch (to print contour only of a video, saving a lot of toner), negative (so if a video contains white lines over black background, saving a lot of toner), cartoon style; with this simpe effects may be possible to avoid to use external video editing software (avoiding to reencode the video);
- in card stock tab, in Shape droplist, may be nice to specify Rectangle Card and Rectangle Frame, so rounded border may be applied at the video image and not at entire card (making hard the cut work);
- in card stock tab, may be added a option to align the image at left or right, so may be possible to print front/back, doubling the flipbook duration using the same paper (a Rotate option may be useful too);
- a option for associate a .srt subtitle file with the same name of the video filename (like VideoLan does) may be useful to add subtitles without to use external video editing softwares (choosing font, size and colour).
- may be useful to add two dots in blank part of the card so, piercing them in every card, it's possible to tie them easly using a needle avoiding to break the stapler when paper is too big.

Thank u for reading.
Bye

welcome to the site giovpres.

some good ideas.

i do want to add some special effects/enhancements for improving color and maybe adding some effects.
subtitle .srt file i dont know about that.. but i am planning on adding some text overlay options.. maybe some scrolling text.
and i do want to add a way to specify a background "frame" shape.
i did add a feature a while ago for double sided printing to put 2 flipbooks on either side.

Thank you mouser,
for the subtitles isn't complicated, there are a lot of free editors to synch subtitles with video (go here  http://www.nikse.dk/SubtitleEdit it's a free editor)

I had forgotten an important option:
- in card stock tab, a option to specify the size of the border of the image (0=hidden) and a pick color selector.

That's all.. for now  :)
