Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

I went on a picnic with my girlfriend yesterday, and we took some photos. When we came back we watched them on f-spot and deleted the ones we didn't like, then we played a slideshow of the rest. Then she asked me if I could make a video of it, because apparently we saw a similar video at a friend's wedding, and I was shocked to find out there seems to be no software to do that kind of thing on Linux (not easily, at least).

I have found out that there ARE similar programs on Windows, and quite popular among my girlfriend's friends, it seems. They pointed me to Memories on TV, which I have managed to make work on my PC so my girlfriend finally has her video and that has made her quite happy.

But it would have been just great if f-spot had just had a button to encode the slideshow to a video file. All the interface is already there, do you guys think it would be very hard to do that kind of thing? Do you think it's out of f-spot's scope?
