Video Related Picture Editor is a gtk2 GUI frontend for batch-manipulating images using ImageMagick, MPlayer and transcode.
It's also the name of the infamous VRPE Team who paid me for hacking this together quickly because they needed it.
Why "video related picture encoder" ? Because I didn't find a better name :) Any suggestions are welcome. With v0.1 the project was called "gFader" because all it did was "morphing" single frames to slow-down a video (giving a "fade-like effect") as batch-job with nice gui so poor Windows users could use it ;) My customer then wanted gFader to also do crop and scaling of multiple image files which rendered "gFader" as projectname useless. So i tried to make up some general name, which still fits if the application-range grows.
What can it do?
VRPE is able to do batch image-processing on a large set of images providing a way to move between images and giving a preview of the current, the previous and the next frame all with a nice GUI.
Different effects can be applied to the image-set (e.g morph, crop). Some of the effects support variable parameters so an effect can change with the image position.
VRPE can load several image formats (the ones supported by gtk2 and ImageMagick) or can convert almost any video to single frames using mplayer. It exports single images but also can render a videofile using mencoder or transcode. You can even launch mplayer to look at what you've done.
Other Features are:
Tooltip explainations almost everywhere
Drawbacks at this time:
lousy hacked together code
somewhat static filename handling
no "project" cababilities (images from previous sessions get imported if directory is not cleared etc.)
morph-curve gets lost
GTK+ version 2.2.x
What's New in This Release:
When giving a name to an imageset the entry-widget is activated per default and ENTER confirms the dialog.
now a video export can take the current imageset as source not only some directory
fixed some bugs
