The HD project was created as HD 1080p @ 25fps and rendered as a custom MPEG-2 project (*.m2t file type) according to these instructions:
I had forgotten to add some credits and a copyright notice at the end of the clip, so I created those separately and used the Bash "cat" command to concatenate the files after i was done (rendering of the 24 minute clip took 2'30", so I didn't want to run it again).
The finished project is here (hope you like classical piano music!):
The page turn transitions were created with ImageMagick -- I customised a script which was downloaded from here:
After creating the individual images from ImageMagick, I used FFMpeg to create a rawvideo format from the 20 images in each sequence. Later, I imported these into kdenlive in between the stills I used for the pages which can be downloaded here:
I corrected the color levels slightly, created the transitions and then resized each image to 1920x1080 before using them for the video.
The audio is entirely my own! :)
