Presentation Concept by spiceofdesign Presentation Concept by spiceofdesign
Presentations haven't really changed that much over the years. The first presentation apps were designed to be used to make slides to transfer onto physical slides, before the invention of digital projectors, and still do much the same. Some efforts have been made in more recent times to improve this, but what we really need is a presentation editor that can handle multimedia from the beginning.

The first view is just a blank document, asking you to add media.

The second view is the add media dialogue, showing different types of media (photos, audio, video, webpages [with integrated webkit browser], new slide creation, slide [from existing slideshows], documents. and graphs/charts [with interactivity built in]).

The third view shows the import video dialogue, following on from the second dialogue. Options include importing from your own computer, from the web (e.g. YouTube) or from a video stream (e.g. a webcam). Similar options would be available for each of the media types, except create slide, which have theme options and slide templates.

The fourth view shows what it looks like when several things have been added. The left hand slide is a normal slide, the middle a video and the right hand side a photo. Next to the slide name is the transition options (blue glowing indicating it has had a slide transition added) and slide options.

Made in Inkscape 0.48 using the eGTK mockup kit and elementary icons.

I can't stop thinking that if it become reality, it would be a gnu/linux killer app.

By the way, I think you should exchange the two lines of the 2nd picture. Create a new slide is what we do the more.
And I don't you how import a graph, create a graph sounds better in my mind.

It looks wonderful! It looks very simplistic and as though anyone could use it, but it's packs some pretty advanced features inside. I really hope this becomes a reality!

No, someone has only just started work on it as a side project, and Luna will be released soon, so no.

This is absolutely beautiful! I think if the elementary team implemented this, I'd be making slideshows just to be able to use the application... :P

Very nice. It'd be nice to see Ease move in this direction

Aside: The one thing missing in presentation apps today is the ability to output a presentation as an executable with an embedded light-weight viewer. This is absolutely vital I feel for presentation fidelity. Different versions of presentation software often cause display quirks and the the right version is often not always available. One could always take along the right version as a portable app on a USB flash drive, but light-weight embedded executable would be nice all the same.

In theory you could probably make this all in HTML 5, which could be super awesome since then web publishing would be super easy.

There is/was an effort to develop a HTML/CSS based slide show system (with presentation controls baked in). It was called S5 ([link]), though I'm not sure whether it's still in active development.

Even with a standards compliant S5-type presentation format however, I still think that it would be wise to include a light-weight (webkit based?) standards compliant viewer (the same as used by the software during WYSIWYG editing) to avoid any possible display quirks that might arise. Such is also convenient, not having to worry about being caught short in a presentation with a computer with only IE6-9.

But yes, I agree, a standards compliant HTML/CSS based presentation format would be great. HTML/CSS is, after all a presentation language and presentation fidelity (not document fidelity) is what matters with slide show presentations.

Looks sweet. Very different to the standard boring slideshow software out there.

Perhaps a film reel at the bottom, for quick scrolling.

I'm not sure how effective the 4th screen would be with longer presentations.

Maybe you could also have a grid view for longer presentations?

I think a "film reel" (what OttoRobba suggested) would look be nice. There would be a strip of all the slides on the bottom and a slider on top depicting where you are. :)

Excellent look, but I would make it a vertical carousel rather a horizontal one. Horizontal scrolling on a laptop is difficult, even though arrow keys would do the job.

spiceofdesign Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The main reason for it is because some of the media types (i.e. documents and webpages will be longer than the height of a normal slide, so horizontal scrolling makes sense here.
