I need to convert some photos to video with all frames with special effects. Video format can be mp4, 3gp, or mpeg4...

Please suggest a good application which will convert fast.

You could try Imagination, a lightweight gui slideshow maker. Click here to open it in Software Center.


You can do this with ffmpeg. In a simpe form you can do ffmpeg -i image%d video.mpg, but ffmpeg has lots of options.


Install OpenShot. It's a movie editor, but you can also put in some images and add cool transitions/effects.

Install openshot from the repos:

sudo apt-get install openshot

Or click on the following link: OpenShot OpenShot
