What I want is a web based application that will run on a web server that takes an input from a web form and populates the text and images of a powerpoint presentation and then creates a video file from the slideshow, including background music that can be viewed on the web.
I don't want someone to create the program that makes the slideshow or the programme that turns the slideshow into a video, because I want to use free open source web applications that are already available for this. What I want to be able to do is to create a series of slideshows using the online presentation creator and then allow other people to be able to customize the text, images, background and music simply by filling out a web form. Either using their own files or ones that I provide. I would need to be able to edit the existing presentations and add new ones that can still be populated using the web form.
I need a programmer that will integrate a free presentation creator, with the form variables parsed in. Your input on the free software will be needed, with this plugging into your code. The output should be swf or flv. I'm not sure what would be the best way of acheiving this goal so any suggestions are very welcome.
This will probably repeat some of what I said before but I will try and sum up here what it is that I hope to acheive.
I want to be able to create a series of slideshow presentations with different backgrounds, images, music and text that people can then personalize with their own text and also if possible the images, music and backgrounds by filling out a webform. The purpose of this is that they will be professional, high impact presentations that people can personalize with their own text and then have the presentation produced in a movie format that they can use in their web marketing.
I want this all to happen on the web so that they can pick a template, fill in a web form with text fields that are the same size as the ones in the template, hit submit and be delivered a movie file of the presentation. It would also be good if they could customize the images, music and background image in the same web form but this is not as important at the text.
It is important that I am able to edit the presentations and add new ones without the need for more input from the programmer.
I want people to be able access this service through a membership site which they will be able to access by paying a monthly fee. I will also need to be able to set a limit on the number of videos that each member can create each month.
Sorry that this isn't very concise but hopefully it gets accross what I hope to acheive with this project.
