KeyJnote presentation software uses the OpenGL API for graphical effects

Mar 15, 2007

KeyJnote is a program that displays presentation slides. But unlike similar applications, it offers smooth alpha-blended slide transitions, zoom mode,  and spotlight effects. It uses the OpenGL API for hardware acceleration support required for the various graphical effects. To create a presentation you just need to export a PDF file from your presentation software. This means that you can create slides in the application of your choice and use KeyJnote for displaying them. KeyJnoteGUI provides a nice KDE frontend for tuning the features of KeyJnote. Available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
